Spizz Energi 2 : Work / Mega City 3

Image Hosted by

One of the many name changes for Spizz. (Spizz Oil, Spizz Energi, Athletico Spizz 80 etc.) Best known for "Where's Captain Kirk?".
This was released on Rough Trade records in 1982 under the monicker Spizz Energi 2.
Spizz changed the name annually, in a bid to get in the Guinness Book of Records claiming he had recorded and released the greatest number of recordings under different names."Too Specialised" was the response of the then deputy editor Shelagh Thomas who confessed to owning "Where's Captain Kirk?" As should everyone.

I remember tracking down every release by Spizz after hearing "Where's Captain Kirk?". I ended up a bit disappointed coz nothing really matched this gem.
Still, there's some good stuff, like "Mega City 3".

Hi Anonymous. I seemed to pick up a lot of Spizz stuff as a kid as well & this is probably me favourite after Cpt Kirk. Quite like the Athletico Spizz 80 LP as well which was one of the earliest LP's I owned.

I'm the anonymous(not for long),
You're right the album was quite catchy (as far as I remember). I've posted a few (weak) comments about the Vibes and the Sting-Rays. You like the Straps, I do too. What do you think about the Cult Maniax ? I'd like to know.
