Melbourne’s Spike F*ck is a musician inspired by love and obsession, Catholicism and heroin addiction, transness and washed-up 60s musicians who make overproduced comeback albums in the 80s. She describes her current sound as “smackwave”, which is also the title of her most recent EP—a blend of late 80s new wave and late 70s post-punk, with a dash of country music and singer-songwriter sensibilities delivered in Las Vegas Ballroom karaoke vocal style. Spike F*ck is a solo act and a band; one person and many. Spike F*ck is woman and man; Spike F*ck is truth and fiction. Spike F*ck is in all of us and none of us.
