No better time than now to celebrate dumb Australia. Morally disassociated, reality TV style politics. $7 chips at the footy. The great Australian dream, a 35 year mortgage on a home that will be in the advanced stages of dilapidation in just 25. We could go on. The Peep Tempel’s album Tales is modern Oz and a collection of its inhabitants, brought to life with lowbrow sarcasm, loud guitars and generous sprinkle of cheese.
The Peep Tempel will release their second album Tales this October through imprint Wing Sing Records on October 3. Written upstairs above a bar in West Melbourne, the three piece have explored some new territory on their second effort. The band’s humour is still intact, though possibly darker. The album spits and snarls with distinctly Australian panache, but urges you to dance and drown yourself in its grotty, boisterous rock’n’roll.
“We wanted the record to have an element of ick”, the band explain, “to make you smile, but not without leaving a film across your teeth. It’s misogynistic, voyeuristic, racist, bigoted, over financed, drunk in Bali, pissing in it’s own mouth, boat stopping mayhem!”
