Incredible new reissue (on Alternative Tentacles?!) many of you will find interesting:

ZOLAR X!

(Seems like a Kim Fowley connection in there somewhere too . . . )

btw I just got my copy, listening right now -- yes it's as cool as it looks! The guitarist is the real deal. Von Lmo watch out!

Zolar X is surprisingly much more "professional" sounding than Von Lmo -- back in the day someone called them "Pink Floyd meets Black Sabbath" but I say they sound more like "Pink Fairies crossed with Rush" (and maybe just a hint of Gong -- outta control echoplexing ya know.)

I really don't see the Stooges comparison (or Chrome either for that matter) though the glam quotient is pretty high as well.

And they wrote a 20 minute prog opus called "Plutonian Elf Story" -- who wouldn't want to hear something like that?

Thyis band get mentioned quite a bit in the early chapters of We Got The Neutron Bomb, the LA punk book.
Wouldn't mind checking them out.

I just saw word elsewhere about a film about Rodney Biggenheimer the 'Mayor of Sunset Strip'. Famous petite dj who played a lot of brit punk as it was breaking and a lot of glam before that.
I think Zolar X played his club regularly or something

nobody posted this, which I linked into from their site
http://www.angelfire.com/vt2/70sinvasion/zolar_X.html

looks like it's from an interesting but poorly layed out site.
