THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE:Slimey Things were first sighted in the venues of Sydney’s underground. Over half a decade of making music and touring, this sextet of pseudo-pop psychos developed a reputation for their quirky but infectious music and their memorable, laugh-out-loud live performances. Their sound is an energetic blend of catchy pop, futuristic rock, sci-fi movie soundtrack music and zany cartoon sound effects.

Unearthed by enigmatic frontman and composer Nick Soole, Slimey Things have received much acclaim as one of the most unique and entertaining acts to emerge from Australia. To celebrate 10 years since their breakout album Quantum Reality TV, they are releasing the record internationally on all digital platforms for the first time.

The record spawned the cult hits Am I Weird? and Dumb Flu amongst its many fan favorites, including the math-prog-pop excursions The Omniprototron 3000 and Parallel Girl. Whether it’s a hefty dose of Frank Zappa-style humor, Mr. Bungle musical dexterity or Devo sci-fi nerdiness, one thing is for sure — Slimey Things are out of this world.”
