Collection: Tropical Fuck Storm

Tropical Fuck Storm

Gareth Liddiard’s own description of Tropical Fuck Storm’s psych punk sound is nearly as interesting and evocative as the music itself. He describes the LP’s title track as “Fela Kuti in a car crash,” and talks of creating a sonic atmosphere that “sounds like chloroform smells”.

Their new record Braindrops is the follow up album from Tropical Fuck Storm's 2018 debut A Laughing Death In Meatspace and similarly, written and recorded in the bands home 'Dodgy Brothers Studio' in regional Victoria.

“Everything we do, we try to do it in a weird way. The whole album is full of weird beats, and just weird shit everywhere,” Liddiard explains. He cites Doc at the Radar Station-era Captain Beefheart as a key sonic touchstone, and Braindrops certainly shares the Captain’s penchant for pounding abstract grooves. Tropical Fuck Storm have achieved a uniquely off-kilter sound. Liddiard partly credits this to the group’s use of unconventional equipment, “We use lots of techno gear to make rock and roll because rock and roll gear is boring, and all sounds like Led Zeppelin.”

Listening to Tropical Fuck Storm is a jarring and exhilarating experience, full of pulsating grooves, black humour, dissonant experimentation, and unsettling dystopian plot-lines. Braindrops is an unrelenting work, from an unrelenting musical ensemble. “Tropical Fuck Storm is a full-on thing,” Liddiard offers. “Everything we do, we do it to death.”
