"Timeless" CD compilation by Zolar X
Zolar X "Timeless" recorded 1974-80, released 2004 (Plutonia / USA)
Until recently, Zolar X was a forgotten footnote from LA's glam scene -- a few people remembered the wacky band that dressed up like aliens (they once gigged with the likes of The Stooges & NY Dolls), but their independently released & poorly distributed records were rarer than rare.  Fortunately Jello Biafra stumbled across their recordings, became a devoted fan and eventually gave the band's music a proper release  on his Alternative Tentacles label in 2004.  You'll be amazed at how good they actually were!  Quoth Jello: "The missing link between The Stooges and Chrome!"  Even more amazing still, a new version of the band (2/3 original members) recently went out on tour (I saw 'em at VNUK'S TAVERN in Cudahy, WI) AND they are working on an album of brand new material for release in 2007!  Also look for a video documentary coming soon . . . more links:  official site, myspace site
