Fishing For Fishies is King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard’s return after a year-long hiatus following their prolific output in 2017, where they released five studio albums in the space of just over ten months. In the lead-up to the album, it has been touted as a collection of blues-infused, psychedelic boogie songs (a third of the songs have boogie in their name). We tried to make a blues record. A -kinda-thing, but the songs kept fighting it, or maybe it was us fighting them. Ultimately though we let the songs guide us this time; we let them have their own personalities. Fishing for Fishies Q&A.
Fishing for fishies Don't make them feel happy Or me neither I feel so sorry for fishies. Don't matter to kiss and Put back, poor fishies should be free. The album’s title-track Fishing For Fishies is an upbeat country/blues song taken from the point of view of someone who feels sorry for fish and doesn’t find fishing necessarily fun. Ironically, some of the song’s lyrics mention feeling hungry, and in the music video, singer Stu Mackenzie is still actively fishing while singing about feeling sorry for it.
Fishing for Fishies is the fourteenth studio album by Australian psychedelic rock band King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard. It was released on 26 April 2019 by Flightless Records and ATO Records. The announcement of the album was accompanied by the release of the title track and its video.

For the real brain-bending stuff though, it’s prolific genre mashers King Gizzard And The Lizard Wizard who sit at the really wild end of the spectrum. Over the last nine years, the Melbourne septet have shown that there’s no genre they won’t dip their toes into. But in 2017, they pulled off a feat ambitious even for them, releasing five – yes, five – albums within 12 months that nailed custom-made psychedelia, nightmarish metal, elevator jazz and wacko prog. There’s a sense of looseness on this offering following the hectic pace of 2017’s relentless experimentation. Boogieman Sam’ and ‘The Cruel Millennial’ are thick and fuzzy dollops of T Rex psych blues, and the swaggering ‘This Thing’ revels in a ’70s-inspired groove so deep Marc Bolan would need a ladder to climb out.
Explaining how recording Fishing for Fishies was an entirely different - and certainly longer - process than their 2017 output, frontman Stu Mackenzie recently told Dork, We’ve never made a record like this before. We thought we knew what we were trying to make. Fishing for Fishies Artwork
