King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard: Midnight Chats – Episode 125

King of the Gizzards Stuart Mackenzie sees what he can remember from the band's 25 albums so far, and ponders how his band might come to an end

Melbourne band King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard don’t just make a LOT of records (they’ve released 25 since they started 11 years ago); each one comes with a different experiment at the heart of it. There’s the thrash metal record; the collaborative jazz record; the microtonal record; one made exclusively on acoustic instruments; one that plays on an infinity loop.

Their latest (if you’re quick enough), doesn’t feature guitars at all – The Silver Cord is the band’s synth only album, which we discuss a little on episode 125 of the podcast, with band leader Stuart Mackenzie. Along with what he remembers from those previous 24 albums, the band’s origins on the Melbourne scene, and how on earth King Gizzard will come to end.
