Zal

Peter Silverton, Sounds, 11 March 1978

THIS IS a singer? You call...this a singer. A monstrous looking creature in an Imperial Startrooper helmet, white paper one-piece jump suit and red, blue and white apres ski boots. That is a singer? Myself, I'm not sure. All I am sure about is his name's Leroi Jones and he's the front 'man' for Zal, the first baby phoenix to arise from the ashes of the Alex Harvey band's instant self-combustion last autumn.
