Tropical Fuck Storm
Featuring Gareth Liddiard and Fiona Kitchin from Australian heroes The Drones, along with Erica Dunn (Mod Con, Harmony) and Lauren Hammel (High Tension), Tropical Fuck Storm dive-bomb into the realms of mortality and immortality, moralizing and amorality; the passing of time, and how little we have left. Their songs are lurid, and told urgently through barbed and byzantine lyricism, abrasive guitar slashes, drum adrenalin, raunchy bass and electronic undercurrents. Live, Tropical Fuck Storm are a force of nature, conjuring chaos at every blistering performance, with zero shits to give for corporate music hegemony. "Kneel down by the advertising, don’t you make a single false move" calls out the female chorus of Fiona Kitschin and Erica Dunn echoing the dismay of our time as we bear witness to the sinister seductions which social media surveillance has entangled us.
