Psychedelic Porn Crumpets with Meatbodies, Breezeway

Psychedelic Porn Crumpets
When you think of a typical English fete, you think of coconut shies and Punch & Judy puppet shows, children tearing around laughing and little old ladies selling homemade hams with smudged labels. The idyllic picture hardly seems like something that would inspire the concept of an album by an Australian psych rock band, but then Perth’s Psychedelic Porn Crumpets have always been hard ones to pin down. 

On their third album, ‘And Now For The Whatchamacallit’, the four-piece take that very British image and reimagine a 1930s small town fair for the future, twisting the wholesome giddiness and mirth of such events into a madcap adventure that feels like a ride you don’t want to end. It was inspired by a documentary about Woburn Sands, the English town frontman Jack McEwan grew up in. “It felt like a homage back to home,” explains Jack. “That idea felt like I could write about these old times but give it a twist of the future, like what people back then would think it would be like.” 

With the theme emerging a few songs into the writing of the record, the band decided to embrace the “nostalgic happiness” associated with it and write “the most fun things we could think of”. “Fun” is perhaps an understatement when it comes to describing ‘And Now For The Whatchamacallit’, which sprints through thunderous, wailing fuzzy rock (‘When In Rome’), sitar-led lysergic voyages (‘Native Tongue’), and stomping psych-pop (‘Bill’s Mandolin’). The latter was written in honour of a mandolin Jack was given on the band’s last UK tour, which became an inanimate observer of all sorts of capers, the likes of which informed the record’s songwriting. Tour lends itself to creating the kind of experiences you can fill an album’s worth of stories with, according to Jack. With nights not able to get properly started until after the show’s finished, you’re more likely to meet “the quirkiest people or the ones who are still awake or buzzing, or on magic potions of sorts.”
