Les Zazous were from Holland, not France as their name misleadingly implies. Playing somewhat non-descript guitar pop, L/Z don't particularly resemble anybody offhand, though I'll let you fill in that blank. The second flipside, "Today" is the keeper, exuding decent power pop sensibilities. If you're interested in a less crackly sounding version of the A-side, "(Brand New Life In) Another Town," head over to iTunes for their Singles Party compilation, featuring an alternate recording of that very song, along with seventeen more. So far as I've been able to discern, the b-sides are exclusive to this wax. In conclusion, their bio mentions they've shared the stage with Alex Chilton and Radiohead among others.
