I bought this large glossy photo at a garage sale this weekend. The previous owner had no idea who it is. But I know someone here on Tiki Central does. Help me out!

That is what you get when you cross Shields and Yarnell, Bea Arthur, and a Star Trek re-run.

Yeah Vern, I thought the guy in the front looked like a Romulan too. If I can't find out the name of the band, I can always photoshop in blue skin, antennae, and sell it on Ebay as a rare Star Trek concept photo.

Looks like 1970's Glam Rock to me. Same eyebrows & hair as Star Treks' Romulans. Wasn't there a glam band called Vulcan??? or it could be Sweet in their sunday best...

Good god, how did you find them?

I wonder if we could track them down and get them to reunite for us. Just picture it...

I'd love to say I had this little kernel of esoteric knowledge filed away in my head, but actually I did a search for "glam rock alien" and these guys came up.

Go here for an mp3 sample:

Ygarr from Zolar X will be interviewed on KZSU at 10:30pm. You can listen over the Internet at
http://kzsulive.stanford.edu/ or on iTunes under the "eclectic" category.
