Zoo-Z: Skyline/On & On 7"

Here's one of those records that I just lucked into one day, and simply cannot get enough of. From Hayward, CA, USA, this was a trio that played pure minimal electronic music. I've searched for info on these guys for a year or so, to absolutely no avail. The electronics (especially on "On & On") are brilliant, bringing to mind Eurpoean bands like Neural Circus, Vice Versa, or a more restrained Transparent Illusion. The only part that's a bit rough are the vocals - a bit too loud and Devo-quirky for the type of music they're playing. But aside from that, this is a solid release. I don't think they released anything else (does anyone know?).

The songs are:
1. Skylines
2. On and On

Get it here:
