Default The Zolo Thread

When I came across the album True History by Mordan Jaikel (which is highly recommended btw), I learned a term that encompasses a lot of my favourite music: zolo. I thought I'd make a thread about it since there isn't one yet.

The term "zolo" was first coined by Terry Sharkie via his "Zany Zolo Muzik Hour" radio show to describe a cross-section of bands and artists with similar approaches to music. Zolo is characterized by hyper, jerky rhythms, synthesized bleeps and boings, polka-dot percussion, chipper falsettos, zany imagery and a Zappa-esque sense of humor. While zolo contains elements associated with Progressive Rock or New Wave, zolo itself is a creative thread that runs independently of both of these genres.
So basically, Residents worship based Rock-in-opposition but with some wiggle room. Post the gems of this fun vein of experimental music.

At a time like this, scorching irony, not convincing argument, is needed.

Do Zolo musicians wield three guitars, or what?
