Don’t sing Queen at open mics

If you were planning to cover Queen at your local open mic, don’t. Psychedelic Porn Crumpets made that mistake for you so you can avoid getting fired. Their latest single “Keen For Kick Ons?” is the offspring of such traumatic experience – even though it’s hella kaleidoscopic and catchy. Stream below:

“Keen For Kick Ons? is about those fruitful days working at a pub. I got fired for getting trolled at an open mic night trying to sing Queen. It seemed like a good premise for a track so I weaved in this narrative of a purple haired French girl who spoke in blotted English but wanted to head out after the bar closed. It’s a mix of tour life and reminiscing about my days at Indi Bar, good times” shared frontman Jack McEwan.
