Tame Impala Form New Band

Tame Impala formed a brand new band for a one-off show last night to raise money for a friend who had their car stolen.

The name of this new band? Cam, Cam and Kevin's Groovy Groovy Funtime Disco Funk Elevator Explosion - and that's the short version, according to a Facebook post by the new band.

"Hey perthian fiends [sic]" they wrote on the Tame Impala Facebook page. "Our good friend the lovely and evidently pregnant felicity groom had her car stolen on saturday morning, so we're all going to THE BIRD tonight to raise money for a new one! playing is Maurice Flavel, Electric Toad and our new band we made at about 4 o'clock this afternoon cam, cam and kevin's groovy groovy funtime disco funk elevator explosion, aka kevin spacey, in an elevator. that's the band name, all of that. in fact this whole post is the band name. including this. oh yeah and we didn't have time to find a vocalist so it's instrumental, the best kind of ental. get down there yo's!"

Meanwhile, Kings of Leon drummer Nathan Followill has declared Tame Impala as his favorite band of the moment in a Twitter Q&A.

    I can honestly say that the thing that makes me the happiest is listening to Lonerism.

    Gotta agree with Followill, Tame Impala is certain my favorite new band. They put on one hell of a show live, too.

    D'you know one of those nights when you get shit-faced and, on top of everything, smokes weed? Then you start making the biggest plans ever? "WE SHOULD TOTALLY START A BAND MATE!" "SOUND MATE, SOUND, WHAT WILL WE CALL IT?" "Cam, Cam and Kevin's Groovy Groovy Funtime Disco Funk Elevator Explosion" "HAHAHAHAHAHAHA" Now read the above screaming and picturing bong coughs and you'll understand...

    You clearly know nothing of Tame Impala, and its members...

    I have Innerspeaker and Lonerism on CD, their self-titled EP and the single "Sundown Syndrome" on vinyl, and I have seen them live twice. Nice try though, Mr. Rock Encyclopedia.

    Kings of Leon endorsing Tame Impala? Its all downhill from here :[ :[
    TimeToPretend!
    Why? Because a popular rock band is supporting them? Wtf happened to people being happy that bands they like are getting recognition?

    Not so much on the story, but...why do people use [sic] instead of using correct spelling, it's just unbeleivably lazy to me.

    I'm close to Followill. I guess at this point the Black Keys aren't really knew, although their rise to fame was recent. Fleet Foxes are up there for me.

    Haha, I didn't mean close as in personally close, I meant my opinion's close. Just want to make that clear.
