Weirdo music you just don't hear these days...
Hailing from Chicago, Blitzoids were a studio only project of the De Chiara brothers with the occasional guest appearance by Jim Nickels. Drawing heavily from The Residents, Blitzoids also managed to fuse in the sounds of Beefheart, Rock In Opposition, free jazz and noise. They released two records in the late 80s- Stealing From Helpless Children and Look Up!. They were also featured on the Ralph Records folk music compilation "Potatoes".
According to the Blitzoids website these records are to be released in the Summer of 2006 (still waiting). Former members currently have a project called Kinkzoid.
