Melbourne’s new supergroup, Slippry Intrigue, have delivered their first album.

New band Slippry Intrigue, featuring members of Tropical Fuck Storm, Suss Cunts, Super Wild Horses, Mod Con and High Tension, has emerged from the depths of lockdown with the release of their first album, Infinity Slipper. 

Written and recorded in April during Melbourne’s stage three lockdown, Infinity Slipper has been released on Bandcamp as well as a limited run of casette tapes.

All proceeds from the album will be donated to Sisters Inside, an independent community organisation dedicated to advocating for the collective human rights of women and girls in prison.

Comprising Amy Franz (Super Wild Horses), Helena Holmes (Suss Cunts), Erica Dunn (Mod Con, Tropical Fuck Storm, Palm Springs), Lauren Hammel (High Tension, Tropical Fuck Storm), and Bess Davey, Slippry Intrigue “share instruments and drinks with free abandon and give no fucks,” according to their album announcement on Instagram.

The band describe their debut ten-track album, “mixed and massaged” by Mod Con’s Sara Retallick, as “a smorgasbord of one hit wonders never played before or since! Described by their greatest fans as ‘mostly unlistenable’ this improvised hot mess captures a slice of isolyf: frustration, boredom and laffing in the face of doom.”

Slippry Intrigue will premiere their first single ‘Karma Suture’ on PBS 106.7FM tonight between 5-7pm.
