A II Z
A II Z (1979-1982): a NWOBHM band from Manchester, UK.
orming in 1979 they featured vocalist Dave Owens, guitarist Gary Owens, bassist Cam Campbell and drummer Karl Reti. After signing with 'Polydor' they released the much-hyped No Fun After Midnight single in 1980 and I`m The One Who Loves You (1981).
A II Z then landed support slots with Girlschool and Black Sabbath thus opening them to a wider audience and a change in membership with Dave Owens (vocals) and Simon Wright (drums) while Reti and Campbell were gone. But it was all for naught when their debut live album of Iron Maiden and Samson styled live material titled The Witch Of Berkeley - Live (originally released the year before in 1980) was still meeting apathy and they disbanded shortly later.
In 1993, 'Reborn Classics' reissued The Witch of Berkeley as a bootleg CD which includes both singles as well as a four-track demo from Jaguar. In 2006 'Majestic Rock' officially re-released The Witch of Berkeley and also included the two singles and their b-sides.
