Currently working on Spizz The Autobiography (any Spizz stories and title suggestions seriously considered)

A passing pushbike messenger stopped, had a brief chat, then cycled away. "Looking good, Spizz isn't he?" said Joe. Spizz? "Spizzoil, Spizzenergi. Remember? Where's Captain Kirk? A major post-punk cult figure, now delivering the capital's urgent packages. It never occurs to me to moan and groan." says Joe.

REVIEWS

SPIZZOIL ROUNDHOUSE
SIOUXSIE & THE BANSHEES

Spizzoil came on next and bravely faced the front line of snarling insults thereby gaining the respect of the rest of the audience. Their short set full of ear shattering numbers revealed a remarkable new talent, the charismatic dancer come vocalist let out a series of tortured vocals complete with high pitched screams. He was in total control of everybody's eyes and ears, returning for a well deserved encore.

SPIZZOIL ROUNDHOUSE
SIOUXSIE & THE BANSHEES

 

Spizzoil ignored the skinheads
now gathered at the front and
totally refused to be intimidated,
all of which totally impressed the crowd to give them a great ovation, bringing them back for a repeat performance of the memorable '6000 Crazy' and the wit which produced "Your spitting's not hitting" from Spizz himself.

Spizz is the Spike Milligan of punk

Spizzoil are bleak comedy

Paul Morley

Only Spizz or The Kinks could have got away with a show like the one I saw last nght

Tom Robinson

NME 1979

Elevated to grand cult status, Spizz's live and vinyl offereings can always be guaranteed to hit a nerve somewhere. This could be monstrous in any sense of the term.

Time Out 1989

Never mind the Sex Pistols reunion this is the real thing. There has never been a better time or a greater need for a personality like Spizz

Time Out 1996

Personally I think Spizz has developed from being a limp joke to the leader and inspiration of one of the most radical bands around. Spizz's powerful voice was the only simplifying element. I was rivetted, gripped, transfixed and I liked it. To me they just got better and better and Soldier, Soldier was a turn-on partly because I could hardly believe a band like Spizz would not only acknowledge disco but play it so well.

Phil Sutcliffe
Sounds 1980

Spizz and his pals have metamorphosed from cosmic jokers into a brilliant, metal bastard of Blue Oyster Cult. Now simply a new improved formidable wall of sound that is positively impressive and capable of perpetrating magnificent anthems like 'Airships' for me the concert's highlight.

Scale-model showman Spizz was at his hilarious best. Let's hope this wasn't the last 'Last Future Show'

Andy Hurt
Sounds 1984

Spizz is one of the greatest all time personalities leading one of the biggest selling indie bands never to have had a top twenty single
