King Gizzard and The Lizard WizardToday we explore connections of the new Australian psychedelic rock scene with Todd Rundgren. Tame Impala is a new band from over there that a lot of people were excited about last year. Their album Lonerism ended up on many year end lists right at the top positions. They even collaborated with Todd Rungren on one track and they covered the opening tune on his 70s masterpiece A Wizard A True Star. Another band, King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard also showed up recently covering Todd’s song Open My Eyes, which he put out with his band Nazz on the famous Nuggets compilation. Also from Australia, we have a long time Evan Dando’s collaborator Tom Morgan with the new LP. London band The Barracudas, who had a minor surf hit in 1980 are back with a cool new 45. Also, we introduce Cleveland band Wolly Bullies in our Live in CLE segment.
