From: Dublin


Style: Reggae



Ground breaking Dublin reggae band and the only act to release a 12inch single on Good Vibrations Records during it's original period of activity. I know very little about the band. Marion Woods and Niamh MacGovern provided backing vocals on 'Repression'. Zebra played the Dandelion on Sunday 6 May 1979. 'Repression' is currently on youtube (search for Zebra and Repression and you'll find it)

Leo Mallon replaced Mark Thyme on drums in 1979 and plays on the 12-inch though he didn't remain long with the band. He died in a motorcycle accident in 1985. Later drummer/keyboardist Mark McCormack was later in Know Authority who became Kissed Air. Pete Deane later formed Some Kind Of Wonderful.

Steven Rekab released a solo single with Shae Fitz on his own Ektek label circa 1986. Judging by the catalogue number (EKTK2), there may have been another. He also worked with Mark Megaray and occasionally flipped his name to Evets Baker.
