"ONLY FIT FOR THE BIN" WOULD LIKE TO PRESENT …. "BAZOOMIS". NOT A NAME THAT THAT IS ON EVERYONE’S LIPS, AND NEW NAME TO MOST PUNK COLLECTORS UNLESS YOU WERE ON THE PUNK SCENE BACK IN 1977. THIS BAND WERE THE REAL DEAL….. THEY LIVED ON THE EDGE LIKE EVERYDAY WAS THEIR LAST DAY! YOU COULD EVEN DESCRIBE THEM AS MAD! SO WHAT DOES BAZOOMIS MEAN? WELL, IT’S A RUSSIAN WORD THAT TRANSLATES AS MADNESS! THEY PLAYED ALL THE USUAL PUNK HAUNTS, ROXY CLUB, VORTEX, RONNIE SCOTT’S, MARQUEE, THE BRECKNOCK ETC. THE BAND 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. AS HISTORY WOULD HAVE IT, THIS GIG HAS BECOME PART OF PUNK FOLKLORE AS IT FEATURED ‘THE SEX PISTOLS’, ‘THE CLASH’ & ‘THE BUZZCOCKS’. THE AUDIENCE WAS MADE UP OF FUTURE PUNK MUSICIANS EVEN THOUGH THEY DIDN’T KNOW IT AT THE TIME BUT THE SEED WAS SOWED! SO BAZOOMIS WERE FORMED. THE BAND 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. THIS COLLECTION OF SONGS ARE ALL STUDIO RECORDINGS AND HAVE BEEN 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…. THE EXPRESSOS WERE BORN….. BUT THAT IS ANOTHER STORY! JOHNNIE CHRISTO WENT ONTO FIND FAME AND 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 THAT ARE STILL WITH US TODAY! THEIR CRAZY LIFE STYLE FINALLY CAUGHT UP WITH! …. SO THIS RETROSPECTIVE RELEASE IS FOR … MET, MIKKI & TIM.
