Tame Impala have put together a new band for a one-off gig in order to raise money for a pregnant friend who recently had her car stolen.

The Australian psych-rockers put together an instrumental band they're calling Cam, cam and kevin's groovy groovy funtime disco funk elevator explosion, aka kevin spacey, in an elevator earlier today (July 22) and are playing the fundraising show tonight at The Bird in Perth, Australia.

They band announced the last minute gig on Facebook, writing: "Hey perthian fiends, 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!"

Yesterday Kings Of Leon drummer Nathan Followill said Tame Impala were currently his favourite band. In a Twitter Q&A, Followill answered a fan's question by writing:



Tame Impala's Kevin Parker recently admitted the idea of recording a follow-up to 2012's 'Lonerism' doesn't excite him. Speaking in Uncut, the brains behind the Australian band discussed his lack of plans for a new record as well as his thoughts on the album format and the unlimited possibilities of technology.

Asked what the next album will sound like, Parker responded: "Right now, doing another album doesn't excite me. There's something narrow-minded about thinking an album is the only way you can put out music, especially in the world we're in at the moment. Anything is possible. There's so many people doing interesting things with the internet and technology, there could be so many ways of making music and listening to it.”
