From Y To Z and Never Again is an EP released by the seminal punk band Big in Japan. It includes four out of their six recorded songs and is most notable for being the first release on Zoo Records, the label created by band members Bill Drummond and David Balfe. It was also one of the first releases that came from the late 70s-early 80s Liverpool rock scene. The scene also included, amongst others, Echo & the Bunnymen, OMD, The Teardrop Explodes and Dalek I Love You .
The EP has been out of print since 1978, but all the tracks are available on the Zoo Records compilation Zoo Uncaged.
The tracklisting presents part of the numerous line-up changes the band suffered during their two years of existence. The only remaining members of the band during the recording of the EP were (or seemed to be) Bill Drummond and Ian Broudie.
