Zatopeks are a pop-punk/rock'n'roll band from the UK who formed in 2001. It was originally just Will, Sebby and Pete, all members of the six-piece punk band 3 1/2 Inch Floppy, but pretty soon we added Sammie the Giant on bass, and then in 2003 Spider joined on second guitar.
There have been releases on Household Name Records (UK), Whoa Oh Records (USA), All-Nite Records (UK), Stardumb Records (NL), It's Alive Records (USA) and Squinty Joe Records (UK). There has been one split CD, four 7" EPs and two full length albums.
We toured Europe three times and the USA once, playing in the UK, Holland, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Switzerland, Spain, Italy, Belgium and Austria, and have played many other European shows since then, particularly in Holland.
Over the last few years, the Zatopeks have played shows with the Queers, Groovie Ghoulies, the Parasites, the Loved Ones, The Ergs, The Copyrights, Tuuli, The Kids, Turbo ACs, The Apers, Backwood Creatures, the Sonic Dolls, the Peawees, the Kidnappers, the Red Dons, Sloppy Seconds, Sweet Baby, The Crumbs, Weston, The Steinways, The Beatnik Termites, Dr Frank, the Real McKenzies, the Foamers and Roger Miret and The Disasters.
