One of the most advantageous aspects of our involvement in this site is our access and exposure to the world class music at a time before those bands hit it big. When it comes to King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, we were there at day one of this Australian bands beginnings, including seeing their first U.K. shows., The King Gizzard shows we saw in 2015 corresponded to the new music that would eventually become their major label debut and breakthrough album, 2016’s Nonagon Infinity . But it was in 2017 when The Gizz took their career to the next level, accomplishing a feat that will likely never be repeated , the release of five quality albums in one calendar year.

Its been over a year since I last saw them last live in concert and while much has changed, King Gizzard are still very much the same band. Recorded by the NY Taper at three shows at Brooklyn Steel which were very much fan-friendly affairs with the band playing a very democratic selection of material. The show recorded was the middle night of the three and fortunately contained an homage to the “old days”, a long “Head On / Pill” segue that contained long bits of three older numbers and a few other teases. It was the Gizz’s acknowledgement of how important those early days were for the band’s career.
