Dubbed “the voice of music fans”, Don’t Bore Us serves as a platform in which music fans, critics, creators, and artists can unite to review their favourite music and the biggest releases of the moment.
As part of its newly-launched format, Pist Idiots are taking on this week’s Guest Editor role, which will see the outfit sharing their own reviews and music opinions across the site, and offering their own take on the music they’ve been listening to.
The Guest Editor role comes just days after Pist Idiots released their debut album, with Idiocracy officially arriving on Friday. Having first burst onto the scene a few years ago, the group have since found widespread success across the country, performing shows alongside the likes of The Chats, Amyl & The Sniffers, and Skegss, and releasing three critically-acclaimed EPs.
Working with Alex Cameron (Bad//Dreems) and Chris Collins, Idiocracy sees the group bringing their blistering live sound to the studio, capturing the essence of their sweaty stage shows with powerful, gritty tracks that show why they’re one of the most commanding and vital bands on the Australian scene today.
Speaking of the inspiration behind the album’s title track, which arrived last week, frontman Jack Sniff explained that it’s something of a mission statement for which the record lives by.
“We were spitballing ideas for album titles when Tommy said Idiocracy, which immediately seemed fitting,” Jack says. “The song followed this, we thought of it like some warped theme song.
“We were just playing the song without word sand loving the energy of it before we put ‘Idiocracy’ on the chorus. The first couple verses were more or less written on the day and spell idiots in an acrostic way.”
Pist Idiots’ debut album, Idiocracy, is out now.
