Psychedelic Porn Crumpets’ “Bill’s Mandolin” Is A Madfest

Perth-based quartet Psychedelic Porn Crumpets give us another hair-raising dose of madness with their latest single “Bill’s Mandolin” where the four create harmony out of chaos. Yep. It sounds like a collage of jangly explosions, but for some odd reason “Bill’s Mandolin” has a rhythm to it that is highly satisfying. It’s colorful, explosive, and conveys the chemistry of four creative who just want to bring fun to your ears:

“When we were in the U.K on our last tour I was given my Grandad’s old mandolin/lute thing which I remember playing as a kid. It was such a nice gift that I had to take back to Australia, the only problem was it didn’t have a case and we had an entire tour in front of us which spanned most of Western Europe plus Australia. I carried it through plenty of customs, slept with it, took it out to pubs, navigated the streets of Amsterdam and passed out with it. It became the tour emblem and once I got back to Perth I felt like I’d done the old girl justice. I wanted to write an Ode to Bill and the travels with the mandolin that summed up the tour and sounded as chaotic as the adventures that ensued.“ shared PPC’s Jack McEwan.
