Wicklow band Kidd Blunt’s final album 2009’s The Flood is now on streaming


The band Kidd Blunt were a Kilcoole, Wicklow outfit that played post-punk and were active from 1998 to 2010.

Kidd Blunt were Eoin Whitfield (Vocals & Guitar), Stephen Hughes (Drums & Percussion), Turlough Fortune (Guitar) and James Eager (Bass Guitar) and released a split album with Puget Sound, a debut album Grey, Black, Grey in 2006 and The Flood in 2009, which they launched at Whelan’s. The band split up in early 2010 due to lead singer/ rhythm guitarist Turlough Fortune leaving the country to pursue further education.

Eoin Whitfield later went on to play with Enemies and EHCO, and got in touch last week to say that The Flood is now up on Spotify and other streaming services.

The album was remixed and remastered too, by Whitfield as the album was rushed out for the live launch…

“It’s awesome to hear this album fully potentialized, because in 2009 we had recorded mixed and mastered the entire thing in the space of 2 weeks, making sure to have it ready for our final gigs in Whelans and Kilcoole, a serious rush job,” says Whitfield.
