Release Info: Bamboo Zoo - Look! Listen! Consume! (1981) Ghost Party / Binding Wire (1981)
More outstanding British post punk here. Bamboo Zoo formed in Manchester with three of their members coming from the ashes of I.Q. Zero originally hailing from Blackburn. I'd loosely describe much of their sound as a mix of The Nightingales meets The Monochrome Set with some moodier elements drawn in at times like say Crispy Ambulance perhaps. One of the guitar players is quite adept at using the tremolo bar to create odd wobbly legged guitar tones. Bamboo Zoo also have a John Peel session floating around out there. If anyone knows where to locate, I'd be much obliged.
