Again relying upon Peel to sort me out as we reach the end of the alphabet and another lockdown endurance challenge. It seems The Zones and associated bands were the Scottish equivalent of London SS in that the family tree that includes The Zones involved members of Slik, The Rich Kids, The Skids and Simple Minds. To describe the analogy in more detail, proto-punk band London SS had members passing through its ranks that gave rise to a significant faction of the early London punk scene (The Damned, The Clash, Generation X and Chelsea no less).
The Zones went down that power pop road, much like the Rich Kids and The Skids.
Here they are in 1978 doing the second of their two Sessions that they did for John Peel in that year.
