Love Thy Neighbour & One Inch Badge Present:
TROPICAL FUCK STORM
Tropical Fuck Storm came looming onto the scene in 2018 with their intense and perfect debut album, A Laughing Death In Meatspace. The album is Gareth Liddiard at his most fierce as a songwriter, holding nothing back, which keeps in line with the uncontrollable noise-rock from the band. TFS deliver a fraught vision of algorithmic apocalypse.
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.
A Laughing Death in Meatspace doesn’t show us the way out of this situation, but it howls along with us as we peer into the maelstrom ahead.
RVG: "RVG evoke 80s Australian bands that crammed garage rock cred with sun-dappled hooks, such as Sunnyboys or the Go-Betweens. What makes these songs so moving is not Vager’s voice itself but her delivery. Her fierceness, her flow and how clear it is she’s singing about what she knows.” The Guardian https://rvgband.bandcamp.com/
