21 January 2021: The event has been cancelled.
In response to the latest changes to the WA Transition Plan, we regret to advise that the performance by King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard at Fremantle Arts Centre on Sunday 13 February has been cancelled. Ticket holders will be contacted by Oztix shortly regarding ticket refunds.
King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard‘s sense of unfettered sonic exploration makes it easy to mistake them for a long-forgotten relic of the psych explosion of the ’60s. With a far-out sound that, at times, feels barely held together, King Gizzard evoke the eclectic rock experimentation of Frank Zappa’s early work with the Mothers of Invention, the anything-goes feeling of the Flaming Lips, and the demented glee of a random, obscure ’60s group plucked from a Pebbles compilation as they follow their musical flights of fancy wherever they might lead.
King Gizzard’s prolific nature led them to release albums at a frenetic pace, and their intense desire to seek out new sounds and follow new paths – from expansive jazz-rock (2015’s Quarters) to semi-acoustic ballads (the same year’s Paper Mâché Dream Balloon), and from sci-fi prog (2017’s Murder of the Universe) to trippy garage rock (2014’s I’m in Your Mind Fuzz) – meant that every one of their multitude of releases sounded different from the last, and each one was worth checking out.
Some of their albums, especially Nonagon Infinity from 2016, stand shoulder to shoulder with the best psychedelic rock ever made and even their most daring moves – like releasing a death metal concept album with 2019’s Infest the Rats Nest – land like a knockout punch.
Presented by Perth Festival and Supersonic.
