    Here it is !
    So glad to share our release of King Gizz' Polygondwanaland album.
    What you have here is :
    - Double 12'' LP cut at 45rpm.
    - Personalised mastercut.
    - Deluxe hand screen printed jacket on heavy weight Stardream Quartz 350 g/m2 paper with fresh lizard king red blood ink, haha !
    - 200 copies.
    ----------
    PLEASE PLEASE NOTE :
    - Due to heavy weight paper and DOUBLE LP (more than 500g once safely packed) shipping costs can be more expensive than usual. Sorry about this, nothing we can do and we certainly don't ship records in a low budget paper enveloppe.
    - FYI, it's "only 2€-3€" more shipping for an additional copy, good thing to find somebody interested and combine shipping ;-)

about

Here's our double 12'' LP cut at 45rpm version of King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard's Polygondwanaland album.
The band gave all the files of their 4th album for free asking people to press their own version as they won't be pressing it by themselves. Yes, all for free !
We loved the idea, we love the band so we decided to try to make the best version ever. We think we did.

Track Name: Crumbling Castle
Meet me glassy eyed, blind, and divine
Holding down the fort on the coastline
The castle is a pimple on the face of the world
A humble spot for clues to drop if you eavesdrop

I see through the bricks to the sea, crumbling castle
Waters rising up, thick and green, crumbling castle
Inching closer each century, crumbling castle
Are we safe in our citadel?
Look upon our condition, crumbling castle
You would not believe where I’m from, crumbling castle

We wait for the death that does not come, crumbling castle
Dug all the holes in God’s acre, crumbling castle
We have even said our last rites, crumbling castle
Are we safe in our holding cell?
Look upon our condition, crumbling castle
We head to our extinction, crumbling castle

The sound of the constant lightning
Would be enough to block out
The fall of the end of the world if it weren’t
For our tinnitus from the bomb

In the wind I sway back and forth
I’m brittle as an aged human being
Where my walls are safe from wild weather
The filth forms into great nastiness
(Polygondwanaland)

I don’t want to be a crumbling, crumbling, crumbling castle
I don’t want to be a crumbling, crumbling, crumbling castle

I don’t want to fall into dust
I don’t want nothing but to live on
The ache inside my keep spurs me on
I don’t want to be invisible
(Polygondwanaland)

I don’t want to be a crumbling, crumbling, crumbling castle
I don’t want to be a crumbling, crumbling, crumbling castle

On this very day in one thousand years
The Earth will be relative to the Sun and the Moon
And a new world will be created
I know because it is written here

I see through the bricks to the sea, crumbling castle
Inching closer each century, crumbling castle
Waters rising up thick and green, crumbling castle
Are we safe in our citadel?

Look upon our condition, crumbling castle
You would not believe where I’m from, crumbling castle

I don’t want to be a crumbling, crumbling, crumbling castle
Don’t want to be a crumbling, crumbling, crumbling castle
Don’t want to be a crumbling, crumbling, crumbling castle
Don’t want to be a crumbling, crumbling, crumbling castle
Track Name: Polygondwanaland
Goodbye kinsmen, polygon
I’m gone abroad, gondwana
Drift until I, polygon
Get to my stop, Gondwanaland
Grand and never been
Seen by man
Veil of a dream

We’re gonna get there
We don’t need our whereabouts
Follow where the river runs
We’re gonna get there
Polygondwanaland

Exit, snow melts, polygon
Float on raindrops, gondwana
It will get hot, polygon
Fasten seatbelts, Gondwanaland
Sand and mountain
Umbosom its hidden hand

We’re gonna get there
We don’t need our whereabouts
Follow where the river runs
We’re gonna get there
Polygondwanaland

Polygondwanaland
Can I see the eye
That sees me?
Please, show me these

We’re gonna get there
We don’t need our whereabouts
Follow where the river runs
We’re gonna get there
Polygondwanaland
Track Name: The Castle In The Air
The river opened her mouth
And spat into a vast sea
Larger and bluer than a cloudless sky
Muscular, prodigious, immortal
But our vessel was invulnerable
It was well built
The boat rocked me into sleep
And I floated through a deep dream
Smooth sailing through the Castle in the Air

One-eyed people living peaceful
With monopods and astomia
Without malice or guile
Without covetousness
Oh, ah

And there’s men whose heads do grow beneath their shoulders
Maybe we’ll find the world’s center
Where equinox casts no shadows
Spread our teaching
Alleviate their damnation
Oh, ah
Oh, ah

Without us they’ll go to hell
We are casting spells

Could it be faithful?
Could it seem more real?
As I opened my eyes
The dream decolourised
Till it was obscured
And the harsh reality hit me like salty water
Track Name: Deserted Dunes Welcome Weary Feet
Deserted dunes welcome weary feet
Feels euphoric (Polygondwanaland)
And so novel (Polygondwanaland)
Prehistoric (Polygondwanaland)
Living fossil (Polygondwanaland)
It’s full of dinosaurs

Nervous natives watch pompous pilgrims
Foreign nature (Polygondwanaland)
Eerie jungle (Polygondwanaland)
Our bodies are (Polygondwanaland)
Tasty morsels (Polygondwanaland)
It’s full of dinosaurs
Track Name: Inner Cell
Meet with me in the dark of the street
There we’ll start believing secretly
Eutopia, freedom in the inner cell
Look for me with the beak, the cloak adorned, scented leaves
A void between foul stench of those above whispering
Inner cell

Dance of the dead
Will descend on his head
And extend to the
Family’s hubris

From under the skin, insurrection
From hollow logs, from shallow streams and drying seas

Let us walk through the night
To a place clandestine
Free your mind
Disregard all you know
Infiltrate the inner cell

You must not accept his sick version of life itself
Disrespect everything
Multiply, Inner cell

Dance of the dead
Will descend on his head
And extend to the
Family’s hubris

From under the skin
The flesh has rotten
Poison has spread
Through words unsaid
Anemic rule
Now hear me say
Our time has come
Transcending us above the One
To ego death
For now he stis
Inside the fire
Oblivious that we will keep him in the spire
Have found resolve
And our own crimes
To commit in cold blood
As he did his
Track Name: Loyalty
I see all there is
And has ever been
I am not a man
I am everything
Picture of purity

Deific reign
Ordained unto me
Prehistoric god
Theophany
I shall not be moved

Those who try
I will drink
Their blood

I’ll be watching them
I am everywhere
Floating on the winds
Hiding in the dark
Pure omniscience
Traitors will quake
At the thought of me
Hang them on a hook
Put them on display
Examples must be made

This is a test
I am lord
Fear my wrath
This is a test
I am lord
I am death

What is with these crimes of treason
I will fight this inquisition if I have to
I will not surrender if I’m backed into a corner
I will draw and quarter all their children
Just to prove I’m not a coward
I will put them all on Judas Cradle
Just to show them a god incarnate

Where’s their loyalty
Where’s their loyalty
Where’s their loyalty
Where’s their loyalty
No man, no problem
Track Name: Horology
Once upon a time
There was a great hermit dominion
Veiled from inside and out
Ruled by a lone eremite
Bringer of the Inferno
Controller to Satan himself
To Tchort, Abaddon, and Set
A demented figurehead
Heinous looking thing, he was
Cold and terrible
A long and aquiline nose
Between swelling temples
His green eyes a window
To the Ninth Circle of Hell
A tiny neck supporting a head
Filled with an unending desolation

[Chorus]
Seditious bands storm the bastion
Alive with revenge
Grand intentions
Unbeknownst protomartyrs
Indoctrinated
With impalement

[Verse 2]
Just like that the plot was crushed
Brushed away without a thought
Some were found alive, though
Left to run without their skin
Cauterized and blistering
Forever marked for all to see
Reminding those who think dissent
Is a bridge across the sea
One did make a pilgrimage
In search of a family
Evaporated in the dark
Stolen by the despot
A journey made all the worse
Having had his eyes gouged
Left without the gift of sight
To face his true destroyer

[Chorus 2]
Across the land he walked with death
Parading his
Ossuary
Upon reaching the castle walls
A twist of fate
His mind opens

[Outro]
Sit down weary traveler
I am not what you seek
Join me in a meal
To hear of my repentance
Lift the veil from your eyes
And look beyond the three
Now you know the truth behind it’s
Tetrachromacy
Track Name: Tetrachromacy
I heard a story, could be true
About a color under blue
You couldn’t see it with your eyes
Or invent with intellect

Like the inverse of colorblindness
It’s shrouded like a natural gas
I’ve got to see it for myself
Settle my own curiousness

Back and forth swing like the tide
I look to left and through to right
My three shades are divisible
Lust to see the invisible

The story man was glassy-eyed
He told me ‘bout the power lines
And subarctic caribou eyes
The metal wires burst into life

They flick across the territory
Resplendent like the sky
Some of the snow absorbs UV
Unseeable crumbs and dye

Picking up clues ‘bout my eyes
I scrutinize the iris of the storm’s eye
My three shades are divisible
Lust to see the invisible

Tetrachromacy
See what I can’t see
Tetrachromacy
See what I can’t see

Polygondwanaland

Inconspicuous hue will be
Crowded camouflage to me
My three shades are divisible
Lust to see the invisible

Tetrachromacy
See what I can’t see
Tetrachromacy
See what I can’t see
Track Name: Searching...
Searching for the way
Try to brighten up my day
Searching for the gold
Inside the rainbow
Looking through rose-coloured glasses won’t work
It won’t change anything

My body’s not a temple
It is a vessel
And a blank slate
An empty hard drive
Doctor please, I’ll do anything
Alter me
Let me see
Give me more
I want to see the world differently

Searching
Searching
Searching
Searching

I’ve been born again
I see the light
It’s in my face
I’m analyzing information
Now I am a god
Track Name: The Fourth Colour
I believe the hyperbole
I see the fourth colour

Rising up out of my body
I am omnipresent for the
Many fingers, many minds and many eyeballs
Puppet my feet
I walk the streets, holy
I’ve been born again
I see the light
It’s in my face
My brain is storing information
Now I am a god
In a photon
I see through walls
I see your hue
I can see your terrors
I can see the future

I believe the hyperbole
I see the fourth colour
I can see, tetrachromacy
I see the fourth colour

Rising up out of my body
I am omnipresent for the
Many fingers, many minds and many eyeballs
Puppet my feet
I walk the streets, holy, supreme
Can see all that has been
All that will be
Third eye is free
I have no body
Tetrachromacy
Rising up out of my body
I am omnipresent for the
Many fingers, many minds and many eyeballs
Puppet my feet
I walk the streets holy, supreme
Can see all that has been
All that will be
Third eye is free
I have no body
Tetrachromacy
Rising up out of my body
I am omnipresent for thee
Many fingers, many minds and many eyeballs
Puppet my feet
I walk the streets

I believe the hyperbole
I see the fourth colour

I’ve been born again
I see the light
It’s in my face
I’m analyzing information
Now I am a god
