History
The Fabulous Zarzoff Brothers played R&B, blues and rock mixed with lowbrow, cabaret-styled, schoolboy humour. Dubbing themselves `The Marx Brothers of rock'n'roll' the band became a popular Sydney attraction before breaking up in late 1988. The Who's Who of Australian Rock (3rd edn) lists at least 13 different line-ups. The original line-up lasted from October 1979 until May 1981. Deane and Grose later formed The Eddys.

Some of the other, numerous members included Garry Dale (aka Smoky Zarsoff, lead guitar), Warwick Kennington (aka Rocky Zarsoff, drums; ex-Fabulous Nudes), Danny Haynes (aka Rory Zarsoff, guitar, vocals), Daryl McKenzie (aka Lefty Zarsoff, drums; ex-Nutwood Rug), Dave Wray (aka Rudi Zarsoff, sax), Peter Kekel (aka Cranky Zarsoff, keyboards), Peter Northcott (aka Arfur Zarsoff, guitar), Sam See (aka Smoky Zarsoff II, guitar; ex-Fraternity, Stockley See Mason Band) and Bruce Allen (aka Zippy Zarsoff, sax; ex-Ol'55, Dynamic Hepnotics). The Fabulous Zarsoff Brothers recorded two EPs, Bumsweat and Other Popular Filth (Pirana Bros. label, 1981) and `Nose Picking Boogie' (Pirana Bros, 1981), one single, `Handy Man'/ `Workin' It Out' (Pirana Bros, 1983), plus two albums.
