about

"An object is not so possessed of its name that one cannot find for it another name which suits it better" - Magritte (epigraph from the original cassette release in 1998). Indicative of the times, Pizazz (or one of them, at least) described "Francis" (their 3rd album, recorded in 1998) as an "18-song folkrockindiepop masterpiece with nods to Brian Wilson, Halo Benders, Carole King and Ass Ponys." Now that we've got your attention, press play.

Pizazz were an unknown supergroup from Long Island in the mid-to-late 90s. Featuring Mike O'Shaughnessy of The Throats, Jim O'Shaughnessy of The Feebs and Jen Mackey of The Frustrations, Pizazz dominated the basement/bedroom music scene of eastern Nassau County in the mid-90's (fizzling out in the Pacific Northwest in 2001 with a collection of sub-par recordings). Ah, but those albums during the Clinton Administration!
