Two of Australia’s finest – Tropical Fuck Storm and King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard – digitally release a joint EP, Satanic Slumber Party, via Joyful Noise Recordings, and share a video for one of its tracks, “Satanic Slumber Party Part 2 (Midnight In Sodom).” The EP will receive a vinyl release at a later date.
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.”
There will also be a 3 song collaborative 12″ EP titled Hat Jam; a Double A-side featuring King Gizzard’s “The Dripping Tap” and “Satanic Slumber Party.” The 12” will be available exclusively on vinyl through both bands’ AU online stores, while the Satanic Slumber Party EP will receive a wider vinyl release at a later date.
