Gizzheads have been eagerly awaiting the reissues of King Gizzard’s first 4 LPs + the Willoughby’s Beach EP. With no new material being released this year (as opposed to last year’s 5 albums…) Flightless Records has in the midst of some extensive touring finally made these gems available for the fans that weren’t around for the first few years of The Gizzness. The prices of the original pressings has skyrocketed hand-in-hand with the popularity of the band over the last few years, and value has been pretty stable inbetween 400-900 USDs pr LP for a couple of years already..

Flightless Records opened up orders on their website a couple of weeks back for some really cool mailorder exclusives (most still available HERE), but as it turns out the most limited variants will be the ones that they’re distributing via ATO in the US (very limited quantities also available via Discrepancy Records and JB Hi-Fi in AU).

Flightless stated that after an extreme internet meltdown that has been immortalised the Gizz folklore, we are proud to announce that the REISSUES will be on sale at 9am AEST Wednesday September 19, 2018.

The Gizzmaster, Stu Mackenzie announced a while ago that all of the reissues are original Flightless Records pressings, with variants to be distributed by their affiliates in the US (ATO) and EU/UK (Heavenly Recordings). There has been no wording as of yet by Heavenly, but at this point one can only assume that they will eventually be stocking the standard Black Vinyl pressings of the albums.

This is why they’re still going strong 20 years laterCheck out the band’s raw performance of the classic ‘Teenage Angst’ on Later With Jools Holland in 1997

TYRANNOSAURUS REX became T.Rex, Marc Bolan a acoustic hippy sitting cross legged on the floor with his guitar suddenly turned into using a white Fender Stratcaster Electric guitar and extended version’s of his songs and a great cover of the classic “Summertime Blues” with the name change to T.REX and the release of “Ride A White Swan” Bolan Hit the Big Time in 1971 and a Icon was born.

In 1970, Marc Bolan was in a state of creative flux that mirrored the changing decades. He’d spent the early years of his band, Tyrannosaurus Rex, playing the sort of trippy, lysergic fairy tales that typified the late ’60s period in which they were released. By October 1970, he would release the strutting “Ride A White Swan” under the shortened name T. Rex, a charting hit that presaged the glam-rock mania he’d kick off the very next year. And in between, he released A Beard Of Stars, his final album as Tyrannosaurus Rex, and the first to offer a hint of what was to come in its rocked-up final track, “Elemental Child.” Abandoning both his acoustic guitar and his gentle woodland keen for an electric boogie riff that builds to a sizzling, full-bore jam, “Elemental Child” is the sound of Bolan’s gentle, breezy hippie past being torn asunder and set on fire. By the time its five and a half minutes are up, the ’60s are officially over.
