    TFS have dropped a new album Braindrops, and chose the Byron Bay Brewery to launch the album and start the Aussie tour.  This  band in my opinion are a supergroup: featuring Drones partners Gareth Liddiard and Fiona Kitschin along with Harmony, Mod Con and Palm Springs multi-instrumentalist Erica Dunn and High Tension drummer Lauren Hammel.

    They are supported by Melbourne’s ‘Pinch Points’ and Tasmanian trio ‘All The Weathers’.

    All The Weathers kicked off the night. A fun, eclectic trio that swapped instruments with seamless precision.

    Pinch Points let us know the future of punk is in good hands; this is a band to watch.   With catchy cause driven lyrics, infections riffs and boundless energy.

    TFS are a force of nature, full of menace and emotion.  There is a lot going on here, with snarling voices,  grinding guitars & screeching yet it’s cohesive and delivers a direct message.  You can feel the connective energy between the band members that make their live performance powerful. There’s some fine high-kicking form while Kitschin and Dunn’s haunting backing vocals & Hammel’s rock solid drumming as she pounds the skins. It was a night of high energy, head banging psychedelic prog rock performance art and the crowd loved it.
