ZELDA (japanese post-punk)
Zelda (ゼルダ), stylized as ZELDA, was a Japanese rock band active in the 1980s and 1990s. They played a pioneering role as one of Japan's first all-girl bands. They were also once the longest running all-girl band and are listed as such in the Guinness Book of Records, though replaced by British heavy metal all-female band Girlschool who have been together from 1978 to 2012 and still going.
Led by Sachiho Kojima (小嶋さちほ), the band covered an impressive range of musical genres, from new wave, punk, pop, and funk to black music. Zelda played a seminal role for later bands with their forays into roots music and experimental sounds.
The name of the band is based on that of Zelda Fitzgerald, the wife of American author F. Scott Fitzgerald.Continue reading at Wikipedia... Wikipedia content provided under the terms of the Creative Commons BY-SA license
