Zeebra - Anytime EP (1979)

A1 - Anytime
A2 - Sign Your Name
B1 - Lux Gud
B2 - Night

Nice examples of 60's influenced Mod / Powerpop from this Merseyside (Bootle) Trio (1976 - '81).

Billy Kelly (voc guitar)
Dave Johnson (Bass voc)
John Traynor (Drums)

Zeebra began life in 1974 as schoolboy band - Lux Gud which comprised of Billy & Dave with Paul Dunn (guitar) & Mark Cowley (drums). By '76 Paul & Mark had been replaced by drummers Joe Hickey & John Traynor, Joe leaving sometime before mid '78.

Jungle Records was the House label for Kirkby's Amazon Studios

There are apparently at least 3 lots of recorded but unreleased demos
1. 3 tracks recorded at Amazon Studios, April '78
2. Tracks recorded for an aborted 45 - Satisfy My Soul - at London's the Roundhouse Studios, April '78
3. Tracks recorded at the Open Eye Studios , Oct '80


I've put the band finished in '81 but they did carry on for a few months as The Clique (Good mod name)

Billy was also later in The Excitement. Other members included - Martin Dunbar (voc) Phil Stephenson (bass) Neil Campbell (drums) Steve Grimes (Guitar) - the Core Of The Farm
