A year after their surprise reunion at Good Things festival in 2022, Australia’s favourite seven piece anonymous alternative rock group, TISM are back. In November, they released their first new track in almost twenty years, “I’ve Gone Hillsong”, and the lyrics are profound:
I like to pee on people from my balcony
I poo jog in libraries and swindle from your charities
Now, just in time for Christmas, these notorious shit-stirrers are back with their EP The “C” Word, out THIS FRIDAY December 15th, at 12:01am.
When asked for comment regarding the forthcoming release, TISM provided the following statement:
TISM’s POLITICAL MANIFESTO Like all Australian music performers except for Midnight Oil, TISM has an acute political and economic awareness. To all the nay-sayers, we reply: we’ve done our research. We are of course aware the phrase “I’ve done my research” has, in this new digital era, two meanings: A. I have undertaken a painstaking process of constructing a preliminary hypothesis that expresses my best explanation for what I observe in reality, then carefully researched its accuracy by designing tests that scrupulously eliminate the possibility of bias, and, afterwards, presented my conclusions to peers in order for them to check the accuracy of my observations, always with the understanding that all hypotheses are provisional and are to be abandoned upon the emergence of countervailing data. B. I’ve gone online and found shit I agree with. We are sure it will be obvious which of these two definitions apply to us.
So tune in wherever you listen at midnight on December 15th, and get weird with The “C” Word.
