Flying Microtonal Banana
Limited neon colored vinyl LP pressing. 2017 release. Flying Microtonal Banana is King Gizzard's first-ever experience in microtonal tuning, which features intervals smaller than a semitone and not found in customary Western tuning octaves. 'Earlier this year we started experimenting with a custom microtonal guitar our friend Zak made for (lead singer and guitar player) Stu Mackenzie,' drummer Eric Moore explained. 'The guitar was modified to play in 24-TET tuning and could only be played with other microtonal instruments. We ended up giving everyone a budget of $200 to buy instruments and turn them microtonal.' King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard is an Australian psychedelic rock band from Melbourne, formed in 2010. The band are noted for their energetic live performances and their prolific recording output. King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard's early work saw them primarily perform in a style that blended 1960s surf music, garage rock and psychedelic rock, but more recently have experimented with a broader range of influences, including elements of film music, progressive rock, folk, jazz, soul, Krautrock and heavy metal.
