About King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard
Although they formed in 2011 in Melbourne, Australia, King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard's sense of unfettered sonic exploration makes them easy to mistake for a forgotten-about-relic of the psych explosion of the '60s.
With a far-out sound that, at times, feels barely held together, the band evoke the eclectic rock experimentation of Frank Zappa's early work with the Mothers of Invention as they follow their musical flights of fancy wherever they might go. In 2012, King Gizzard & Lizard Wizard released 12 Bar Bruise, which they followed up just five months later with 2013's Eyes Like the Sky, which the band self-described as a "spaghetti-western audio book." Four more full-length albums followed: 2013's Float Along – Fill Your Lungs, 2014's Oddments, 2015's Quarters and Paper Mâché Dream Balloon and 2016's Nonogan Infinity.
In 2017, King Gizzard & Lizard Wizard released five studio albums within the year: Flying Microtonal Banana, Murder of the Universe, Sketches of Brunswick East, Polygondwanaland and Gumboot Soup.
