Jo Jo Zep/Falcons are best remembered for their hits 'So Young' (covered by Elvis Costello), 'Shape I'm In' and the classic 'Hit 'n' Run' in the late 70s.

Sadly, the band disbanded in 1981, never reaching their full potential. With a new recorded album, the band are currently hunting for a record deal.

That's good news about Jo Jo Zep & The Falcons. Being in the States, I started getting into them only a few years ago, but what great stuff! "Don't Wanna Come Down" is amazing. The Sports were a great, overlooked Oz band as well.
