Psychedelic Porn Crumpets are Australia’s next massive psych rock act

You may not realise it yet. But it’s true.

Over the past decade, Perth has established itself as a hub for emerging psych music, housing such bands as Tame Impala, POND, and Methyl Ethel; though even amongst this scene Psychedelic Porn Crumpets have succeeded in distinguishing themselves from their Western Australian contemporaries.

Since forming in 2015, the Porn Crumpets have been blowing the Aussie psych space to shreds with their mind-bending explosions of reckless reverb and frightening fuzz. And despite anything you may hear, their meteoric rise ain’t gonna stop.

Since the turn of the millennium Australia become renowned for spitting out world-class trip-rockers. Now, Psychedelic Porn Crumpets are ready to take the leap.

With two highly energetic, riff-heavy albums under their belts and the impending arrival of their third, High Visceral (B-Sides), Psychedelic Porn Crumpets have somehow found the time to start their own record label, What Reality? Records.

The idea behind the creation of the label had been in the making for over two years, and is the band’s next step towards their goal to become “completely independent”. As if this weren’t all enough, they’re also currently building their own headquarters where they can record music and operate the label.

Their latest single Little Moon is the explosive first release from the label, and the first offering from their upcoming LP.

Adopting the prolific and DIY spirit of fellow psych-rockers King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard, Psychedelic Porn Crumpets are also set to headline their very own festival, Dr. Noggin Floggin and The Cosmic Toothbrush. The frankly incredibly named event will feature a catalogue of Western Australia’s best acts including FOAM, The Southern River Band, and Kitchen People.

“Perth has a ridiculous amount of local talent that putting on a ‘psych’ gig felt like we would be leaving out the strong character and diversity of the Perth music scene. The idea of the festival was to showcase the vibrancy of Perth and invite the listener into a broader range of music they may not usually go out and see,” say the band.

Building off the vitality of their recordings, Psychedelic Porn Crumpets are gathering an increasingly large collection of dedicated followers through their spirited live shows. It’s a rise to acclaim that ripped into gear on day one and never stopped. And if the lads’ careers to date are anything to go by, we doubt it ever will.

The Dr. Noggin Floggin and The Cosmic Toothbrush festival will be the first date of a nationwide tour in support of High Visceral (B-Sides). If you want to see for yourself what all the fuss is about, check out the details for the tour below:
