About Little Red

July 14, 2012 2:15:00pm

If there’s one question we get asked more than “do you have a dub step record,” it’s “What’s the story behind your logo?” For folks who are new to Kingdom 2, our logo is a small red devil with a straight face and a tear in his eye, affectionately named Little Red. The story behind Little Red (and one that’s been kept fairly secret for the past decade) begins with a record from Kingdom 2 CEO and Head Songwriter, Gooding. The record, called Life Itself featured the first incarnation of the teary-eyed devil as designed by Wichita-based artist, Wade Hampton. The concept evoked stories of meeting the devil at the crossroads and playing guitar so well it made evil himself shed a tear.

Over time, fans began to attach their own meanings and interpretations to Little Red – often coming up with larger-than-life stories of epic gigs and wild crowds until Gooding and Kingdom 2 became synonyms with the logo. Little Red can be seen everywhere from stickered onto spiral notebooks and car bumpers to tattooed on the arms of a good two dozen fans. Last year the band ran a Facebook campaign asking fans why they thought Little Red was crying. One fan philosophized that the tear symbolizes weakness leaving the body – and then decided that it was probably because of an “11 a.m. soundcheck”. We at Kingdom 2 have our own answer (one clue is even hidden in the lyrics of a song in the catalog) but we always love hearing new theories.

In ten years Little Red has gone from a 2D album cover to a plush doll with a back story. Who knows what he’ll become next.
