Albums Of The Week: Tropical Fuck Storm | Submersive Behaviour

The Aussie art-punks cut loose on two tunes you know — and some more you don't.

THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE: “Enter the wonderful world of the amazing Tropical Fuck Storm.

Submersive Behaviour is our favorite Australian art-punk combo’s take on the tried and true “covers record” concept. Over the course of 36 minutes, TFS puts their deranged spin on classics by Jimi Hendrix, Middle Aged in the Middle East in the Middle Ages, Men Men Menstration, Compliments to the Chef and The Stooges.

The songs feature their old kangaroo mates and collaborators Dan Kelly, the Bard of Beenleigh and Aaron Cupples, the Earl of East Gippsland on octopus like strings-man-ship, falsetto and apocalyptic vibes. The cover art is by acclaimed illustrator Plastic Crimewave.

Submersive Behaviour is the followup to 2022’s Satanic Slumber Party collaboration with King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard. It is recommended If You Like: The Drones, Black Midi, Royal Trux, The B-52’s, Crazy Horse, The Stooges, Jimi Hendrix, Amyl and the Sniffers and Guerrilla Toss.”
