May proved to be a heady month for Perth’s Psychedelic Porn Crumpets, as the release of their new album – And Now For The Whatchamacallit – coincides with their global tour dates, currently taking the band through Europe, the UK, Australia and North America. The album, a culmination of experiences lived on the road and influences stemming from the last few years of chaos for the band, is finally unveiled in all its glory – a testament to the Psychedelic Porn Crumpets’ never relenting vivacious attitude and hungry approach to powerful music.

Fans received a kicking indicator of what their new album had in store with the infectious single, ‘Bill’s Mandolin’, a fitting continuation of pace from previous singles ‘Keen For Kick Ons’, ‘Social Candy’ and fan release ‘My Friend’s A Liquid’, yet the broader scope of And Now For The Whatchamacallit is representative of a dynamic band flourishing as their control over the creative direction continues to strengthen and diversify sonically. Already receiving airplay and commendations from BBC Radio 1 and Triple J, the music Psychedelic Porn Crumpets prescribe for a good time is a medicine that can’t be passed up.

Recorded between frontman Jack McEwan’s bedroom and Perth’s Tone City Studios, …Whatchamacallit has developed an enticing and engaging blend of guitars and fuzzed out melodies, as well as an urgency in McEwan’s lyrics that makes Psychedelic Porn Crumpets’ musical execution one all their own. The original concept was to take a 1930’s carnival that had been re-imagined for future generations, a collage of Punch and Judy, Carousels and coconut shy’s that progresses in musical concepts and travels with the listener. Then as we started traveling I was swept off into my own kind of circus, the odyssey of touring life. Large nights out, larger characters, drunken recollections of foreign cities and rabbit hole-ing into insanity (kindly illustrated by Quentin Blake)”.
