Peelander-Z, the Japanese Action Comic Punk Band based in New York City, was originally formed by Peelander-Yellow, Peelander-Red, and Peelander-Blue (later replaced by Peelander-Green), after meeting in the Z area on the planet Peelander. On the band’s latest album P-TV-Z (Chicken Ranch Records, 9/28/10), Peelander-Z has their sites set on making the ultimate happy fun kid friendly punk rock record. On P-TV-Z, Peelander-Z covers kids classics and writes several new ones as well. "Old MacDonald Had a Farm" is re-titled "E-I-E-I-O" and given a ska flavor. "How Are USA?" rolls through the state names over a rocking track. The silliness that Peelander fans love is also abundant on tracks like "Taco Taco Tacos" and "Ice Cream". Chicken Ranch Records honcho Mike Dickinson says, "I emailed the band about doing a kids record and they replied with a very enthusiastic yes! I played it for my young children and they flipped out. They love this band." Hunkering down in Austin, Texas with producer Evil Elvis and engineers Bryan Nelson and Chico Jones at Ohms Studio, Peelander-Z brought out the cream of Austin's indie and punk crop to guest on P-TV-Z. Members of The Riverboat Gamblers, The Octopus Project, Foot Patrol, Atash, and Black Joe Lewis' Honeybears horn section all make appearances. Peelander-Pink even takes a vocal turn on French pop influenced "Dial Ring Ring Phone Pho Phone". P-TV-Z closes with the wistful "Wasabi Man", which is Peelander Z's answer to Motley Crue's "Home Sweet Home". P-TV-Z comes packaged with a DVD featuring videos for "E-I-E-I-O", a performance clip of "Go! Rio!", and videos for "So Many Mike" and "Ninja High School" off their previous album P-Pop High School, plus tons of extras! Peelander-Z has appeared at major music festivals including Bonnaroo, CMJ and SXSW, and played with artists such as Buckethead, The Vibrators, and Guitar Wolf. The band has also been featured on TV programs like VH1's Best Week Ever and Comedy Central's Upright Citizens Brigade among others. At their live show, Peelander-Z guarantees intense audience participation and a chance to exercise. You'll see the band in colorful costumes reminiscent of Japanese animation, though they describe their outfits as their skin. You'll also see The Red Squid, human bowling and all around insanity. A rare occasion for the entire family to rock out and have a great time.
