Vazz were from Glasgow, Scotland and existed in early to late 1980’s. The group consisted of Hugh Small (all music) and Anna Howson (all voices) and were featured on the late great John Peel show on BBC Radio One a few times.

Their first cassette-only release "Whisper Not" contained seven demo tracks from 1982 and was recorded at the legendary Hellfire Club in Glasgow. Only 100 copies were made/distributed. Operation Twilight - a sublabel of Belgian Les Disques Du Crépuscules - scheduled it for release as part of the 2xLP compilation "Antelopes & Alligators". That release never saw the light of day though a vinyl edition with six of the tracks was released in 2012 on the Forced Nostalgia label (FN004).

The 'missing' seventh track 'Watercolours' is available as a download (FN004x) along with a previously unissued instrumental called 'Peripheral Vision'.

The following years Vazz released 3 singles and a mini-album on the infamous Cathexis Recordings label (UK).

In June 2013, Forced Nostalgia released a 16 track CD anthology titled 'Chronoillogical' (FN010CD). This collection featured all the tracks from the singles and the mini-album.

In November 2014, the track 'Cast Reflections' appeared on 'Fabriclive 78' - a Fabric Records CD compiled by Illum Sphere.
