In 1948 a man was found dead on Somerton Beach in South Australia. The strange and baffling circumstances of his death have become one of the world's greatest unsolved crime mysteries and have fascinated crime historians everywhere except Australia ever since.

67 years later Right wingers rule the world uncontested because Left wingers earlier outlawed everybody's right to call out people being assholes on the grounds that assholes also have the right to believe in the possibility of a Leftist Utopia in which nothing straight forward can ever be said.

Melbourne’s The Drones have returned in furious fashion to give fans a first taste of the band’s long awaited (by the river?), seventh album.

Inspired by the unsolved case of man found dead on Somerton Beach, SA in 1948, the single “Taman Shud” is a stripped back, torn up groove taking strike at modern Australia, as lead by the merciless lyrics and vocal of frontman Gareth Liddiard.

It’s tongue-in-cheek, musical savagery with a film clip to match. And if nothing else, it’s going to change the tune of your Tuesday.

The Drones will be touring Europe this October/ November. Details at -
