King Adora

UK rock group King Adora formed in Birmingham in 1998, reputedly taking their name from an oversized adult toy they'd seen in a sex shop. With strong punk and glam rock influences, similar to American power pop, they often drew comparisons to Suede, The Pixies, and the early Manic Street Preachers. They had a successful touring career and picked up a devoted fanbase (who were often also Rachel Stamp, Placebo and Manic Street Preachers fans), although they never made a real impression on the mainstream.

Wizzard

There are two bands under this name. Wizzard was Roy Wood’s post-ELO project. They made catchy glam-rock hit singles like "Angel Fingers" and "See My Baby Jive" with a retro, Phil Spector-style "wall of sound" production. At the same time, they produced decidedly odd, almost avant-garde albums like Wizzard Brew. Wizzard were active from roughly 1972-1975. One of them is a 'blackened' heavy metal band from Finland.
