In 1977 - 1978, Ygarr Ygarrist resided on La Jolla St., in the very
later occupied by the legendary Plunger Sisters (Mary Rat, Trudie,
and Hellin Killer).
In this apt. which later became known as The Plunger Pit, Ygarr
joined forces with an ever
revolving lineup of LA punks, called the SPYS.
Ygarr and Rock later
migrated to the infamous Canterbury Apartments - the early residence
of punk luminaries such as The Screamers, The Go-Go's,The Germs, and many more.
consistent SPYS members were Ygarr, and legendary early punk
scenster Rock "Bottom" Halsey. Hence, the band has been rechristened
in the modern age,as "Rock Bottom and the Spys." During Ygarr's stay at the
Canterbury, he penned some of hisfinest material, including the song Timeless, which is the title
track of the recent (2004)
Alternative Tentacles Zolar X retrospective.
This cult space alien glam band gained its following in Los Angeles
in the seventies eighties including a stay as the house band at
famed LA DJ Rodney Bingenheimer's English Disco club.Their only
record of that era, "Timeless," was released in 1982. Upon the
enthusiastic reception of the Alternative Tentacles re-release of
"Timeless" in 2004, the
band reformed -- without co-lead singer Zory Zenith -- and "X Marks
The Spot" is their new 2007 release.
In addition to being profiled in the documentary on Rodney
Bingenheimer, "The Mayor of Sunset Strip."
Zolar X is the main focus of an upcoming movie Timeless - Starmen
On Sunset. The film is scheduled for release in 2008, directed
by Chuck Nolan.
