Best covers: Tropical Fuck Storm ‘Stayin’ Alive’

A year ago, Tropical Fuck Storm have teased fans with an acerbic drip-feed of 7” singles, cover tracks and unhinged music videos, culminating in their recently released debut album A Laughing Death in Meatspace. TFS is a phoenix of sorts; rising from the ashes of The Drones to form a supergroup consisting of Gareth Liddiard (The Drones), Fiona Kitschin (The Drones), Erica Dunn (Mod Con, Harmony) and Lauren Hammel (High Tension).

One of this covers is Bee Gees’ ‘Stayin’ Alive’. With tongues firmly in cheeks, ‘Stayin’ Alive’ works as a cheeky reflection of the internet’s world wide wreckage depicted in ‘Rubber Bullies’ as the embattled narrator of ‘Stayin’ Alive’ struggles to find purpose in a world constantly tasered by a digital stream of moral pollution.
