Tropical Fuck Storm & King Gizzard Split EP “Satanic Slumber Party” – Across The Ocean

Tropical Fuck Storm & King Gizzard Split EP “Satanic Slumber Party”

Long-time friends Tropical Fuck Storm and King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard have come together for the first time with an unholy psych noise pop offering, a joint EP, Satanic Slumber Party, out digitally March 14th, via Joyful Noise Recordings, and to share a video for ‘Satanic Slumber Party Part 2 (Midnight In Sodom).’

The EP is lifted from the limited-edition 12”; ‘Hat Jam’ a Double A-side featuring King Gizzard’s ‘The Dripping Tap’ and Tropical Fu*k Storm and KGLW ‘Satanic Slumber Party’. The 12” will be available exclusively on vinyl through both bands AU online stores:  TFS  KGLW. While the Satanic Slumber Party EP will receive a wider vinyl release later in 2022.

Tropical Fuck Storm’s Fiona Kitschin elaborates: “King Gizz were up at our house a while ago, recording their album Fishing For Fishies with Gaz. Then after a long day recording and a few too many drinks, the Gizz guys and us all wore hats and recorded a very long jam, which we called ‘Hat Jam.’ Gizz took ideas from the jam and made up a new song called the ‘Dripping Tap’ and Tropical Fuck Storm took the ‘Hat Jam’ recording and turned it into Satanic Slumber Party. It’s four guitars, three drummers, two synths, bass, harmonica, electronic sax and lots of singers and silliness. It’s like ‘Love Shack’ by the B52’s except it’s evil.

Our favourite post-apocalyptic acid punk disco scuzzheads, Tropical Fu*K Storm, have their rescheduled shows in Adelaide and Perth coming up next month to wrap up the Deep States national tour.

For the last two years, they’ve been holed up in a bush bunker pursuing their sonic experiments, which have produced 2021’s Deep States album and feature film, Goody Goody Gumdrops.
