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.

They released their debut EP "Willoughby's Beach" on a limited run of 10" vinyl in October 2011. The first single "Black Tooth" pricked the ears of Triple J's Dom Alessio, who dubbed the band : "a tour de force of reverberated rock'n'roll."

The band soon gained a devoted and at times visceral Melbourne following – selling out several residencies and their debut EP launch at the Tote Hotel. In the following weeks King Gizzard were nominated for Best New Talent at The Age's EG Awards alongside Kimbra, Lanie Lane, Royal Headache and Husky.

2012 began with Gizzard being officially "unearthed" by Triple J, winning a spot at the Melbourne Big Day Out. They also landed a tour with US musician Girl Talk performing sold out shows at the Enmore Theatre in Sydney and Palace Theatre in Melbourne. A huge 2012/13 summer ensued with appearances at Falls Music and Arts Festival, Queenscliff Music Festival, Cherry Rock and a national tour with Jeff The Brotherhood.

Dead Ghosts

The only real problem Dead Ghosts have is that they're too damn good at too many different genres. Whether it's surf rock, garage, punk or key-driven rock romps, Dead Ghosts have supplied the goods, rolled them tightly and provided the flame. All you need to do now is inhale.

The Prettys are a rock band playing the many sub genres of rock (hard, soft, funk, disco, etc.). They are fronted by not only one but three front men (Josh, Code and Pierce). Their three different styles of writing and singing give each song a unique taste. Other members in the band are Ian Browne (No Sinner ,Matthew Good) and Matty Reed (Did You Die, Public Domain). The band started in Vancouver in 2012 under the name The Bumpin Uglys and was changed in late 2014, before the Prettys first album (Empty Heads) came out.
