BAZOOMIS -White Washed Kids CD (Detour OFFTB021) London '77-79 Roxy punk'n'roll

BAZOOMIS -White Washed Kids CD (Only Fit for the Bin 021) London '77-79 top punk'n'roll: 15 tracks, limited edition of 200.

H2D: Excellent '77 punk chugs with huge, chunky riffs and hints of the Saints. Live-to-tape sound-quality varies but it's all completely listenable.

Detour: BAZOOMIS (a Russian word meaning something like 'Madness') first got together after one of their best mates Keith Levene persuaded them to come and watch his band at the 'Screen On Green' on Sunday 29 August 1976. And like so many others from that audience, BAZOOMIS became a band. They got a flat on the Kings Road above 'Scissors' where they spent many hours amusing them selves by chucking things out of the window at passing Teddy Boys. They soon played all the usual Punk haunts, ROXY CLUB, VORTEX, RONNIE SCOTT'S, MARQUEE, THE BRECKNOCK etc. Though they never did a 45, this collection of songs are all studio recordings salvaged from many old cassettes from under their bed and the back of Chester draws. They are fast, furious and in yer face!

After the band split in 1978, they drafted in Roz to take over vocal duties. She had previous worked at Virgin Records and it was her voice that was over dubbed on the Sex Pistols 'Some Product' LP. As times were changing, the band wanted a new name and change of direction as The EXPRESSOS. Johnnie Christo later had a number 1 hit in America with 'The Escape Club'. Apart from Johnnie and Arnold, they are the only two surviving members of the band today! So this retrospective release is for MET, MIKKI & TIM. R.I.P.

Tracks: Car Ride, High Rise, I Wish You Dead, I Can See You, I Don't Need You, Sewage, You'll Never Know My Name, Too Much Hate, Talk To Me, (You Make Me) Sick, I'll Be Your Stranger, Everyone, The Mercenary, Freedom (revisited).
