Zarsoff Brothers

BandRockAdult Contemporary

Legendary Australian comedy-rock band The Zarsoff Bros, infamous for their bizarre onstage antics and irreverence for the rock stardom construct, are back on the road to promote their new studio album "Mixed Business" - an attempt at wider airplay

Biography

This band reached cult-level status in Australia between the late 1970s and mid-1980s. Renowned for their dynamic and bizarre live stage presence, The Zarsoff Brothers combined tight punchy R&B with antics designed to deconstruct the rock-star myth. The grown-up version of the band is still putting industry noses out of joint, though their 2005 album 'Mixed Business' attempts to bridge the airplay divide somewhat. Their irreverent performance approach has made it harder to secure regular live work in the neo-conservative Australia of the 21st century - however the rarity of their performances has somehow added value to their status as cult-level icons.
