Spike Fuck & The FML Band


We are so excited to welcome Melbourne’s cult heroine SPIKE FUCK & THE FML BAND to the 2018 bill. Spike’s EP self-described as Smack Wave is a blend of late 80s new wave and late 70s post-punk, often delivered with the singer-songwriter sensibilities found at Las Vegas Ballroom karaoke nights. She is primarily inspired by love and obsession, addiction and gender identity, but makes a point to never take herself too seriously. Lead single ‘Guts’ cracked Spotify’s US Viral Top 50 and was voted as #1 Song of the Year by Noisey in late 2016. This year, Spike appeared at David Walsh’s Dark Mofo, toured internationally alongside Kirin J Callinan, Cigarettes After Sex, and performed at NYC’s famed MoMa gallery. For Laneway 2018, Spike will be accompanied by her rarely seen (but often alluded to) band The Mother Fuckers.
