Kid Koala is animated. Unsurprising, really, as he’s an accomplished cartoonist. Catching him cutting up drunken trumpet riffs and crabbing on the up-faders always makes for an ear and eye-popping spectacle, but what makes him so cool is that everything he does is surprising. From the weird and wonderful crates he digs in, to turning up to gigs in giant animal costumes, he never disappoints.

They come off like live cut and paste trawls though charity shop bins, sliced together with the demented fervour of some kooky geneticist. This Dr Moreau’s Island of crazy critters only has one aim: to move them dancing feet. A true one-off…
