Australia’s Tropical Fuck Storm continue their hot streak of brain-bending releases with ‘Moonburn,’ a maxi-single cassette out August 26th via Joyful Noise Recordings. They have shared one of its singles, a cover of The Stooges’ Ann. Bassist Fiona Kitschin steps up to the microphone on a cover that swaps Ron Asheton‘s scorching guitar part for a deranged sound collage of guitar freakouts, siren noises, and electronics. It’s accompanied by a video directed by Sam Mapplebeck, which TFS’ Gareth Liddiard calls “a cheap shit DIY, high explosive puppeteering miniature concert shrinkage film clip.” Watch the video for Ann (The Stooges Cover) via YouTube below.

Alongside Ann, Side A of the cassette also offers the new song, Moonburn, a ballad in the classic TFS style written and sung by Liddiard. Side B includes an acoustic take on the fan-favourite song Aspirin (Slight Return) and a haunting cover of Talking Heads’ Heaven.
