The Zolo spirit (and sometimes music) is brilliantly captured in Sally’s animated shorts.
Check out the other work which she has generously uploaded on Youtube:
Also be sure to buy her DVD.
La Movida Madrileña was the name for the Madrid based Spanish New Wave movement.
It was a rich scene that produced dozens of great bands representing the varied styles of the New Wave. One of the styles La Movida nailed was Zolo, which manifested itself in the mainstream more so than any other New Wave movement globally (with Japan being the possible exception).
I picked out three of my favorite La Movida Zolo hits:
Alaska y Los Pegamoides – Bote de Colon
Mecano – Maquillaje
Las Chinas – Hombre Salvaje
I am going to attempt to do a daily Zolo mp3 share on Pownce.
Please let me know if you want to subscribe and I will send you an invitation.
You will be able to stream the mp3 on Pownce, or download it.
The first tune of the project is C-catch a F-Falling Star by The Hybrid Kids.
This will take a little digging, but you will be rewarded for your effort!
Buried in the Flash site linked below is a Twinart video for their 1979 band, Taste Test.
The video is fantastic and stylish, the music is pure DIY Zonk–a true gem.

Twinart plan to put the video up on Youtube eventually. Please comment on this post to encourage them!
