I’m In Your Mind Fuzz / Quarters! / Paper Mache Dream Balloon
🐊 RELEASED ON JUNE 17TH 🐊
At some point in the last decade, the world’s greatest living non-stop psychedelic rock machine hit creative overdrive. Music flowed from King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard like lava – super hot and absolutely unstoppable. Thankfully, Heavenly was on hand to help get the out there right out there, releasing ten albums by the band in less than five years.
Now, having been out of print on vinyl for years, the first three of those albums, I’m In Your Mind Fuzz, Quarters! and Paper Mache Dream Balloon are getting deluxe reissues to help you blow your mind on your top of the range stereo. Or maybe blow your speakers, it’s your choice.
All released on Friday 17th June 2017, 2014’s I’m In Your Mind Fuzz and their two 2015 releases – Quarters! and Paper Mache Dream Balloon – will all be reissued as double albums on heavyweight 180 gram vinyl.
I’m In Your Mind Fuzz and Quarters! are both cut at 45rpm while Paper Mache Dream Balloon comes with an album of instrumentals. Each reissue includes a downloadable version of the album.
“You are getting very sleepy… Red cloaked faceless figures beckon. You ascend the staircase to the castle in the air. You step to their groove. It’s kraut, it’s garage, it’s soul, it’s psych. It’s crazy. It’s all in your head. Or is it? You are getting very sleepy… I’m in your mind fuzz.”
“Like an old bone dug up by an even older dog, Quarters! is decaying, stinky, flyblown, but still somehow… meaty… and tasty. It’s wonky! It’s wobbly! Warts ’n’ all! The Gizzard Gator flies in, serenades you for 40:40 and is off in search of more flesh. Quarters! is a woozy jam recorded to warped tape. Join the cult. Join the Quarters! club.”
“Beautiful and terrifying. The thorniest rose. Calm and calculated. The evaporating rainbow. The smell of tin sheds and horse shit. Tim-tams and dahlias. Mice and magpies. A cool tune in the hot breeze. A throw-away classic. Gizzard’s utopia. Including the original LP PLUS the original album but… INSTRUMENTAL! No vocals. No harmonies. No singers. Just… pure…. acoustic… BLISS.”
King Gizzard continue to be as prolific as ever releasing seven albums in the last four years. Having last played the U.K. in 2019, when they sold-out Alexandra Palace in London, they are currently on a world tour and play their only U.K. show at the All Points East Festival in August.
