Logo #81: Ah Cama-Sotz
Belgian noisemaker Herman Klapholz is really into bats and cats. This logo, for his band Ah Cama-Sotz, was realized by Laurent Pietsch in 1994. This video for "Hungrr-ah" is sort of like that "Star Trek" episode where the guy with the half-white body is chasing the guy with the half-black body. Or vice-versa. Except this isn't outer space and "Star Trek" didn't have women strolling the cemeteries with froofy umbrellas. Whenever I hear the word "Sotz" I always think of the 1962 film "Zotz," which starred good ol' Tom Poston as the bookish professor who can slow down time, cause pain or kill just by pointing at someone and saying the word "Zotz!" Poston later played George the Handyman on "Newhart." God bless you, Tom Poston.
