BAZUZU - WHO ARE THEY?

Bazuzu are a britpop band based in Bournemouth, U.K. Their songs are written by the somewhat oddly named, Roj Agogo. The band line-up is, and probably always will be, somewhat unstable. Simon Jones, Peter Wallbridge, Al Palmer and Terry Cheesman have all supplied the bottom-heavy vibrations at some time or other. Ted Wallbridge has played drums at all gigs to date except for the Bournemouth Live Music Festival for 2003, when Bob Mace took his place. Larry Curtis has played lead guitar for every gig to date. Roger Stronell (AKA Roj Agogo) has insisted on playing rhythm guitar and singing right from the very conception of the band. This man is really the only constant factor in the band, for better or for worse. Since he was responsible for writing all the songs, I guess this is only to be expected. Anyway, just to make a confusing situation even more confusing, Bazuzu played their most recent gig at the Green Room on July 2nd using a new experimental line-up. Roj fronted the thing on vocals and guitar and Bob Mace and Al Palmer backed him up on drums and bass respectively. And the icing on the cake was the amazing Dr. Zodiac on percussion. It turned out to be a highly memorable event. Bob and Al together form an unstoppable rhythm section. You may have seen them as 2/3 of Carl Chamberlain's band Funhouse. In which case you know what I'm talking about.

Well, if the band line-up is confusing then the music that the band plays is even more confusing. It lies in a sort of
no-man's-land, somewhere twixt britpop, alternative pop, acid pop and reggae. In other words, it's totally uncategorizable !!! Nevertheless I guess obvious influences might be The Beatles, Oasis, The Kinks, Coldplay, early Pink Floyd and even Bob Marley.
