KING GIZZARD and the LIZARD WIZARD – ” Live In Brisbane 2021 “

Posted: November 13, 2022 in MUSIC

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard opened up the vaults for “Live in Brisbane ’21“. the live album captures the band’s December 19th acoustic show at The Princess Theatre in Brisbane, Australia.

Beyond seeing the genre-fluid psych-rockers don acoustic instruments for the entire show of newly-arranged versions of old favorites, “Live in Brisbane ’21” is significant for another reason. In the wind-down of 2021, KGLW had planned a number of five-night residencies across Melbourne, Sydney, Parth, Hobart, Adelaide, and Brisbane, with all of them except Brisbane getting cancelled ahead of time. Brisbane was cancelled as well, but not until the fourth night.

It was a miracle this show happened. We’d planned 5 night residencies in Melbourne, Sydney, Perth, Hobart, Adelaide and the Brisbane jaunt was the only one which wasn’t cancelled. Well… it was cancelled, but not ‘til night four. In hilariously unlucky circumstances I had severe food poising the night before night one. Laying on the cold tiles in a puddle of my own sweat, I asked myself “how and I supposed to play a show tomorrow?” I ran to the toilet to vomit green stomach bile once again and shat myself on the way. It raced down my leg and made a reverberant “slap” as it landed on the carpet. “This show is gonna be interesting.” And it was. The music was healing. A purge. Melodic medicine. Injected by my Gizzard comrades and propelled by the punters enthusiasm, the vibrations warmed the body and soothed the stomach. And now, a spoonful of miracle for all of you. Love stu xox
