King Gizzard And The Lizard Wizard

Friday, August 16, 2019, 9:00 PM


Formed in 2010 in Geelong, fifty miles outside of Melbourne (where they now reside) as a jam band off-shoot of a variety of other projects, King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard released their debut album 12 Bar Bruise in 2012. Currently the most productive band on the planet, they are a once-in-generation group who play a heady combination of psychedelia, prog rock, freakbeat, jazz, heavy metal and Krautrock at a breathless punk pace; theirs is a high-velocity sound, each album a transportative diversion down a slippery worm-hole steered by seven minds sharing one on-going journey. Those who have seen them live will attest that King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard can go toe-to-toe with any of their forefathers; Aphrodites Child, Mahivishnu Orchestra, Hawkwind, King Crimson, The Doors, 13th Elevators, Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, and Amon Duul IIAs promised at the beginning of the year, King Gizzard successfully released an unprecedented five studio albums in 2017 with the release of Gumboot Soup arriving this past New Years Eve. 2017s other previous four records Februarys Flying Microtonal Banana, Junes Murder of the Universe, Augusts Sketches of Brunswick East and Novembers Polygondwanaland have all received individual critical acclaim and set the stage for the next dizzying chapter in the bands career.In years to come King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard will be judged not by their separate albums, but by a body of work where themes, melodies, motifs, riffs and ideas resurface and recur, each album peeling back a layer of the onion to glimpse at past and future alike.Album discography: 12 Bar Bruise (2012), Eyes Like the Sky (2013), Float Along Fill Your Lungs (2013), Oddments (2014), Im In Your Mind Fuzz (2014), Quarters!
