A few weeks ago, Ygarr and I decided to add photos to the book, Out of This World: The Story of Zolar X. When we got to Chapter 73, where the band is in Memphis recording at Ardent Studios, we knew an updated pic of the vintage tape from that recording session was necessary. Today, Ygarr pulled out the tapes from the Zolar X archives. Yesterday afternoon I took pics and video as Ygarr sifted through tapes and Zory letters. It's a deep dive into Zolar X history. We can’t wait to share this 6-year project with planet Earth! - Raidii X

The song, Observations of Earth, was written in Laurel Canyon, CA in 2008. Raidii and I knew we had something special and had plans for putting the song on the album Observations of Earth, but for many reasons those plans didn’t materialize.
Fast forward to 2020. You can imagine how the global events that have unfolded in 2020 might look to an observer from another planet. We decided to pull on some of the threads of things that have unraveled around us, not just here in the USA but around the world. And a promotional video launching our masks grew and became something else – part meme, part statement, part observation.
The Zolarian mythology and philosophy is simple yet complex, easy yet hard – racial equality, be aware of your place in the universe, be open but with well-thought out limits, ask the right questions, apply logic with heart – the spoken story of our people from far, far away. We call Earth home and we care deeply. This is our contribution in this moment to what matters.

We’re working on the book today, the memoirs of Ygarrr Ygarrist and Zory Zenith. We originally thought we were going to write three separate books or “volumes” but it has been recommended, from a reliable source, that we combine them. We spent today joining Volume 2 with Volume 1. It’s an interesting collaboration we have – Ygarr and I. He’s the one who lived it and knows it so well that he tends to leave some of the juicy, forbidden stuff out. It’s finding the balance of looking inside his mind/heart yet keeping it real and then putting that into words.
This clip features the songs Recitation and Timeless from the Timeless album.
Nop trea xemiz (greetings friends), Earthers and new fans. In 2010 at Pershing Square, Los Angeles, we recorded and filmed our set live and released the one and only DVD that exists on the planet of Zolar X performing, with Don Bolles of the Germs sitting in on drums. Three weeks earlier, our ZX drummer quit and we made a call to Don, he said yes, and the rest is now history. We had two days to rehearse and even those rehearsals were cut shorter than we would have liked, the DVD proves it was worth it.
On our Face Book/Zolar X page we will be posting one video each day that highlights many of the songs from the show and extras that we added into the DVD. https://www.facebook.com/zolarx/
With this DVD you’ll experience the Zolar X Starship, games on board, the journey, virtual computer dialog and of course the live show. If you are interested in purchasing the full-length DVD it is available at https://www.ZolarX.com/oddities
We just signed on with Patreon to build our fan base and to support future endeavors like tours, music and artistic projects and in return will give our supporters exclusive views of costuming, props, behind the scenes, chat rooms, unreleased songs, videos and much more. We plan to take all the segments of the live DVD and upload them (full-length) to the Zolar X Patreon site for our Patreon supporters. Zolar X Patreon coming in the near future.
Nok voo (thank you)! We look forward in communications in cyber-space. Keep looking up.
Remember, U R N Space.

Being in two bands at the same time - a fork in the road...The beginning of this video (audio) is a typical day at the Canterbury Apartments and at the end of the video (audio) is when the power blew at Rodney's English Disco. What you have in between is from the album 00X When Worlds Collide.
