For Mackenzie, assembling Butterfly 3000 was in itself “a puzzle – it was like putting together some insane, three-dimensional puzzle thing. And there was only one way that it would all fit. But once you found that way, everything just locked in together.” The result is a triumph of King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard’s characteristic extra-terrestrial approach to music, to their oblique strategies, and their refusal to repeat themselves. It’s also testament to a group who – a decade and 18 albums into one of the most remarkable careers – are still able to surprise, still hungry to reinvent their own paradigm, still finding fresh inspiration in infinite possibilities. Long may they hew to their alien instincts.
