Nazz was an American rock band from the 1960s. The band was formed in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in 1967 by Todd Rundgren (lead guitar) and Carson Van Osten (bass guitar). Thom Mooney (drums, formerly of the Munchkins), and Robert "Stewkey" Antoni (vocals, keyboards) joined before their first concert, opening for The Doors in 1967. The group's musical style primarily consisted of psychedelic rock, garage rock and power pop.
Nazz is the self-titled debut album by psychedelic rock group Nazz. It was released in 1968.
The track "Open My Eyes" was accompanied by a promo video, directed by Ray Dennis Steckler. The album also featured the original version of what would become guitarist Todd Rundgren's signature song, " Hello It's Me", when Rundgren re-recorded it several years later as a solo single for his double album Something/Anything?. Nazz peaked at number 118 on Billboard's Pop Albums chart, while the single "Hello It's Me" peaked at number 66 on the Pop Singles chart.
The album was remastered and rereleased in 2006 with bonus tracks by Sanctuary Records Group.
