Notes:
– The history of Ground Zero goes back in 1979 and a band called Roko. In 1981 after a couple of line-up changes they changed the name to Ground Zero.
– In 1983 they changed their name to Underground Zero to avoid confusion with a London based R’n’B band of the same name. From this point on, Underground Zero follow a much more distinct Space Rock approach and obtain a career within the Space Rock genre. If you are into some good underground Space Rock check the rest of their career on their official website
