Below are select songs recorded by the original band back in the mid-1990's, now available on CD;
HOTTER THAN THE DICKENS Volume One and Two
Their opening number.
Sirens, and their romantic effect on mankind...
I Feel Fine.mp3
A pop tune inspired by Kurt Kobain, before doing himself in.
Under the Sunny Side Up.mp3
A Piracy on the Seven Seas
How The Middle East Was Won.mp3
Zillion submitted this instrumental to a local grass roots "boxing organization" to use as their theme song. No dice.
Itty Bitty Pieces.mp3
The Novelty Shop's take on The Dave Clark Five's smash hit.
Queen of Queens.mp3
The result of extreme romantic obsession where a woman takes on a significance higher than Jesus Christ.
Featuring the "stinging sounds" of The Mosquito
In Us God Trusts.mp3
This little Beethoven-esque gem came to Zillion in a dream, in the debate over such said coined phrases.
The Missing Link.mp3
Going against the educated categorical grain that the proof actually has to be in the pudding.
Thee Three Elven Kings.mp3
Medieval memories of bygone eons.
Easily the most maddening tune in their whole repertoire. Zillion won't blame you if you can't finish ...
