Peelander-Z is a New York-based punk band that originally formed in Japan in 1998. Billing themselves as a "Japanese Action Comic band hailing from the Z area of Planet Peelander," the band's four members (known as Peelander Yellow, Peelander Green, Peelander Red and Peelander Pink) don oddball, psychedelic outfits that include headdresses, plastic wigs and Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers-style jumpsuits. Musically, Peelander-Z plays a quick, brash style that pulls equally from 1980s hardcore and 1990s skate punk. The band's outrageous stage show has won it appearances on several television shows, and slots at notable festivals such as Warped Tour and Bonnaroo.
