Genres: Progressive Rock

Keyboard-oriented rock with some King Crimson, Procol Harum and Pink Flyod influences. This English foursome made their debut as TUESDAYS CHILDREN back in 1967. Although they did flirt with prog, their record company made sure they never strayed too far from pop. As such, they played the well-known clubs (Marquee, Speakeasy, Scotch of St. James, etc.) and toured extensively with the Moody Blues, Pink Floyd, The Troggs, The Animals, The Nice, The Kinks, Jimi Hendrix, The Who and a budding King Crimson to name but a few. In 1970, they changed their name do CZAR, released one eponymous album and then broke up.

Their album was recorded after gigs, late at night. The tracks were written and recorded virtually the same day, then some Mellotron was dubbed over the lot.

    I'm not familiar with any of the other Czars, but the grind/mathcore Czar from Tacoma are pretty good.

    There can be only one CZAR, and that'd be Nicholas II. But outside of him, the band of bashing, 90s homage post-hardcore / metal whathaveyous from Chicago is the only one worth mentioning here. ~Vertical Mass Grave~ is a revelation: Lake Michigan is boiling.
