Psychedelic Porn Crumpets announce new album ‘And Now For The Whatchamacallit’

The Aussies have shared new song ‘Bill’s Mandolin’ to preview the record.

Aussie bunch Psychedelic Porn Crumpets have announced details of their new album.

Going by the suitably silly name ‘And Now For The Whatchamacallit’, the album comes out on 31st May via Marathon.

In advance of the record, the band have shared first song ‘Bill’s Mandolin’.

Speaking of the new track, the band’s Jack McEwan says: “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.”

The band are set to return to the UK this May. View the dates and listen to ‘Bill’s Mandolin’ below.
