2 wee bits of info on Dundee band The Megazones.
They brought out this vinyl single in 1980 - A side was called "Never Been So Lonely" and the flip was "Circles".
Unfortunately, the record has escaped my clutches, so if anyone has an MP3 version of it you can pass on to me, I could put the audio up on Retro later and that would help put a sound to their name.
Meanwhile, the following year, The Megazones played their final gig at the Barracuda.
This short review of the evenings event was written by accomplished alliteration aficionado, Rikki Rimshot, and appeared in the first issue of Cranked Up.
There is mention of the possibility that the band may resurface later with new band members, but having looked through all the local fanzines I have from 1981/82/83, The Megazones name doesn't crop up afterwards, so I think this gig probably was the last thing they did.
A little footnote - I know there is also a recording of a collaboration with Megazones man, Jim Farrell and ex Scrotum Poler Craig Methven, but again, I haven't been able to get my mitts on that either yet.
So you never know, there may be more to come on The Megazones and related material, in the New Year.
The large version of the review will be easier to read - just give it a click.
