Tropical Fu*k Storm New Single & Clip ‘The Planet of Straw Men’


Avant-psych-noise-skuzz weirdo's Tropical Fu*k Storm release their newest track… The Planet Of Straw Men. The first new music since 2018's terrifying debut A Laughing Death In Meatspace, The Planet Of Straw Men is a trans planetary neutron dance about casting the first stone on the third stone from the sun.

In a world where dissident writers are drawn and quartered, communists wear Rolexes, and Trump drives around with a fridge-full of blood; Tropical Fu*k Storm’s new single istestament to the jester's duty.

The Planet of Straw Men revives Tropical Fu*k Storm’s art-punk manoeuvres with a political snarl that pulls your head in, without calling you out. Lauren Hammel’s drums unwind like a sonic mirage of a call-to-battle. The swagger of Fiona Kitschin’s bassline is as insecure as a parliamentary promise. And Erica Dunn’s uncorked guitars frolic throughout the track like a shit-faced fist fight. In this bare-knuckle ceremony, Tropical Fu*k Storm have made a song and dance of diplomacy’s cheap-suit delusions of grandeur.

“They want the glory of a coup de gras!” spits Gareth Liddiard; a broken bottle reminder that General Jack D. Ripper’s red-cap reincarnation is running the show—and how unsatirical this whole joke is.

In other exciting news, Tropical Fu*k Storm are the newest additions to Melbourne’s Flightless Records family, joining King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard, Amyl and The Sniffers, the Murlocs, O.R.B, Traffik Island and more!

Tropical Fu*k Storm are currently touring around the nation, Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne shows are SOLD OUT!

They are set to release their newest LP mid 2019, the follow up to their debut A Laughing Death in Meatspace.
