The Aussie band ZOOT split in 1971. But they might be back.
“We’re going to test the waters, so to speak, and see how it goes,” Beeb tells Undercover.fm. “If all goes well we’ll consider playing some shows around Australia. I guess it will all come down to our individual schedules at the time but I hope it can happen.”
I’m a bit excited about this, because I love Zoot. Their album, Best of the Zoot Locker is one that I have spent hundreds of hours listening to. It’s very rockin’ stuff. And it turns out they’re from where I live now.
As Undercover.fm says:
The members of Zoot formed as Down The Line in Adelaide in 1965. In 1967 they relocated to Melbourne and changed their name to Zoot. Their biggest hit was their hard rock cover of The Beatles ‘Eleanor Rigby’ in 1970 but in 1971 it was all over.
And if you haven’t heard that cover of Eleanor Rigby, by god you must. Here it is.
