This Weekend I’ll Mostly Be Listening to… The Zen Alligators August 18, 2012Posted by irishelectionliterature in This Weekend I'll Mostly Be Listening to....
Was looking for material from another band when I came across some material from The Zen Alligators and given the recent mention of The Horslips by wbs, I figured I’d do the Zen Alligators this weekend. They released a number of singles in the early 80s, were fairly popular although never produced an Album before they broke up.
I always liked the name and used to see posters for them playing the likes of the TV Club. I remember too arriving at a cousins house in the early 80s and being very impressed with her collection of singles which included the Zen Alligators, Tokyo Olympics and other Irish bands with fancy names from the time.
The band contained two ex-members of Horslips, Johnny Fean on guitar and vocals and Eamon Carr on drums.
