After being challenged by reader Jim D. to end my alphabet with neither Frank Zappa or Hector Zazou, I offer up Zolar X – a band that never quite was…
Before there was punk rock, new wave, the 80’s or what have you…there was Zolar X. All of this would be from a hazy memory of having seen them and their car (which looked like a space ship) at Tower Records in
I don’t think they ever made any professional recordings, the AT CD sounds like fancy demos at best. They were what is often described as ”way ahead of their time”. From another planet, before Devo existed. Walking around
It doesn’t even really matter if they were any good or not. You will either think this is the neatest things you’ve ever heard on this planet or…the lamest, trashiest, badly-played rock-n-roll…on this (or any other) planet. And I love songs with science fiction lyrics!
ZAP! You’ve been Zolarized!
Really should’ve posted this on Halloween, folks! Go ahead and Google them!
