"It’s like ‘Love Shack’ by the B52’s except it’s evil."

Do King Gizzard &The Lizard Wizard ever sleep? Back with another release after dropping Butterfly 3001 and announcing their 18th album Omnium Gatherum last week, the band have now released a collaborative EP with Tropical Fuck Storm.

With three joint tracks, Satanic Slumber Party is the product of a late night jam session. Speaking about the release, Tropical Fuck Storm’s Fiona Kitschin said: "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.”

Rounding off with a 12-minute long track, Australia’s busiest band have done it again with this insanely fun surprise release.
