Live: PSYCHEDELIC PORN CRUMPETS // Electric Ballroom, London

Perth’s very own Psychedelic Porn Crumpets turned Camden’s Electric Ballroom into one big heavy mosh pit last week playing their largest UK headline show to date.

Fourteen and a half thousand kilometres away from home, the Australian psych rockers found themselves in front of a crowd ten times the size to which they’d played just over a year ago at Sebright Arms. Their third album, And Now For The Whatchamacallit, was released in May this year and was followed by festival appearances, an American tour, and now one around the UK.

There was no shortage of glorious hair flips as the band kicked us off with Surf’s Up and Found God In A Tomato. It’s a wonder frontman Jack McEwan’s glasses managed to stay on as he threw his head back and forth in time with the riffs he churned out. Their latest single, Mundungus, was followed swiftly by Marmalade March off their debut album. Each song as packed with meaty riffs as the last, crowd surfers and moshers alike were completely immersed, straight through Bill’s Mandolin, Cornflake, and finally Nek.

Complete with psychedelic visuals sometimes reminiscent of Rorschach inkblots or incorporating band members, the Psychedelic Porn Crumpets show was just that – an intense, stimulating rush of psychedelia we didn’t know we needed.
