Earlier today we announced the release of the first in a collection of 2021 releases with Aussie cult-psyche band King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard. The LP, dubbed ‘Teenage Gizzard’ contains early work from the band, brought exclusively to ‘cornetto’ yellow and green wax and limited to 500 copies, now sold out. The upcoming four LP series will form a set of King Gizzard records that we press throughout 2021 as part of the ‘Official Bootlegger’ campaign in which labels have been given access to a stash of material to release in a variety of formats.
Music licensing is somewhat of a dark-art and this is a massive directional move from King Gizzard on the back of their 2017 open-source album ‘Polygondwanaland’ which resulted in a number of bootleg presses. Each purchase of the Blood Records variant series will act as a single entry into a prize draw to win a liquid-filled pressing of each LP and we’re also using this post to announce what we’ll be releasing throughout the year in this series:
Vol 1 - Teenage Gizzard (Cornetto)
Vol 2 - Live In London (Zoetrope Picture Disc)
Vol 3 - Polygondwanaland (3D Pop-Up)
Vol 4 - Live In Paris 2019 (Ultraviolet)
