Band Biography

Spizzoil were an English punk/new wave band led by vocalist/guitarist Spizz (real name Kenneth Spiers). Formed in the late 1970s, the band changed its name every year, subsequent names including Athletico Spizz 80, Spizzenergi and The Spizzles.

They are notable as the first band to top the newly created UK Indie Chart early in 1980 with the single “Where’s Captain Kirk?” More than two decades after its release, it was included in Mojo magazine’s list of the best punk rock singles of all time.

As of 2017 Spizz was still performing as Spizzenergi.
