Tropical Fuck Storm aka TFS are the rising Aussie rockers we didn’t know we needed in our lives, but here we are! The Melbourne four-piece are continuing their success in 2018 through into the new year by heading up the East Coast of Australia, plus City Limits Fest in Perth (lineup here) for a string of shows so you can get caught up in the eye of the fuck storm yourself.
The band recently appeared at the annual Gizzfest (King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard‘s Festival) and our reviewer caught them for the first time stating:
“Tropical Fuck Storm are also a fuck storm of brilliant. This reviewer had missed the boat on these guys up until yesterday, and being right up close to Gareth, Fiona, and the gang to witness the veins pop out their heads and necks while they beat the shit out of their instruments to make writing, punchy, utterly idiosyncratic Aussie rock was sheer dynamite. Do yourself a huge favour and get to the front of a TFS show ASAP.”
If you’re looking at the members and thinking, god they look familiar, that’s because they probably are to you. TFS is made up of Gareth Liddiard and Fiona Kitschin (from The Drones) with Lauren Hammel ( of High Tension) on drums and Erica Dunn (Harmony/Palm Springs) playing guitars and keys. Could you call them a supergroup for this reason? Absolutely. Should you check them out on this upcoming tour? See the answer from the last question.
