Editorial Review

The three members of New York-based band Peelander-Z resemble living, breathing cartoon characters. That might sound offensive, but it's not - it's actually the look they're going for.

Specifically, they refer to themselves as a "Japanese Action Comic Punk band hailing from the Z area of Planet Peelander." So they're actually cartoon characters (or action figures) from another world. One can only wonder what kind of tour bus they use.

In any case, their larger-than-life personas and extra-noisy brand of punk make their shows a guaranteed good time.
