watch Tropical Fuck Storm’s dystopic “The Future of History” video ++ win tix to BK show
As Australia's Tropical Fuck Storm (the new band from two members of The Drones) gear up for the US release of their debut album A Laughing Death In Meatspace (due 10/26 via Joyful Noise), they've got a new video for "The Future of History" off that album which premieres in this post. Like the rest of the album, the song is wacky and weird and impossible to pin down, and the video suits it perfectly. In Tropical Fuck Storm's own words:
Yet another low budget, high art, masterclass in dystopic portension masterminded by Chris Matthews of Defero Productions. Witness protaganist Gary Kasparov’s historic 1997 chess confrontation with IBM Supercomputer Deep Blue. The stakes are high. Kasparov is thrust head long through the aeons into the unavoidable hell of 2020. There he faces the repercussions of his frankly lackadaisical efforts in the subjugation of IBM’s glorified calculator. Can he absolve himself of this blunder? Or is the future of history itself at stake?
As mentioned, Tropical Fuck Storm are touring the US, including a run opening for Modest Mouse that includes NYC-area shows at Brooklyn's Kings Theatre on October 9 (buy tickets or win them), Montclair's Wellmont Theater on October 10 (tickets), and Asbury Park's Stone Pony Summer Stage on October 12 (tickets).
