King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard

Completely fried 7-piece garage punk band of theremin-wielding psychopaths half originating from the flat salt bush plains of Deniliquin and the other from the sea-stained Anglesea coastline, brought together through a share house in Melbourne and a mutual love of Pavement, Thee Oh Sees and Nuggets.

Count on this group of Australian weirdos to come up with an idea like this - a 12" of four songs, each 10 minutes and 10 seconds long, accompanied by an insane painting of four different worlds melding together. Who are we to refuse them? This not quite an EP not quite an LP take a sharp turn into the wispy and mellow - The River tumbles down a Brubeckian 5/4 meander right into a Leslie'd wicker counter-pattern, Infinite Rise rides a groovy yawning wake-up call through the commune, God Is In The Rhythm effervesces like a prom dance when the acid starts kicking in, and Lonely Steel Sheet Flyer circles ever upward like a friendly smoke signal from a beach fire - at 10 minutes apiece, the boys have plenty of room to stretch out around the songs, and they do so with loose limbs and stoned smiles.

"Dirty and unashamedly sloppy, psychedelic warts and all, ****"- The Age Newspaper.

"This is a fuzz explosion of garage rock revival injected with a healthy dose of surf and psychedelia…What you get is 35 great minutes of mind-blowing rock'n'roll". – Sydney Morning Herald.

"No one else in Australia comes to mind as doing anything quite like this, let alone doing it so well." 4.5/5 – The Brag.

"'Eyes Like the Sky' is like nothing else released this year – or probably this decade."- PBS Radio.

The Murlocs are a tight knit rhythm and blues garage outfit from Melbourne, Australia.
The band has been steadily working on a new record in-between Ambrose and Cookies touring commitments with King Gizzard.
The other members also play in such acts as Crepes, Orb and Baked Beans.
After touring Europe in February the lads will be gearing up for the states in April/May!
Expect new material, a new show and whole heap of dance party boogie. Uncle Murl Lives on.

Bombay Beach

Bombay Beach is big Sonic Youth-ian riffs juxtaposed with David Lynch-ian sound breaks. It is a diegetic soundtrack to a film.
