Having just played the holy heck out of this year’s Splendour In The Grass, pyschedelic shred lords King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard were back onstage in no time at all, going from the madness of thousands upon thousands of punters flocking the enormous amphitheatre and creating one of the biggest circle pits Splendour has ever witnessed to the much more intimate, 400-capacity Oxford Art Factory in Sydney.
Playing material from their energetic whirlwind of a latest record in Nonagon Infinity along with plenty of old cuts thrown in, King Gizzard worked the Sydney crowd into an absolute frenzy. They were supported by Geelong psych-rockers ORB, who are about to embark on a tour of their own in August journeying their new album Birth.
We were about as close to the maelstrom as you can possibly get to take some candid shots of two of the best names in psychedelic music in Australia today. Read our review of the spectacle as you go.
