After 82 years of existence, Australia’s greatest export (1) has finally been immortalized through song(2) – and who better to do it than coastal garage psych slackers King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard. The seven-piece dropped Vegemite and it’s film clip simultaneously yesterday, with the clip featuring frontman Stu Mackenzie feasting on bread so laden with Vegemite that even Paul Hogan would probably cringe (anybody else would probably just vomit). No forthcoming album has been announced yet, but given that they’ve just about released two albums a year over the past two years it probably won’t be long. Garage rock ditties about Australian yeast-based products are hopefully just a taste of what’s to come.
