Video: Zed gain pole position
Bald-headed Bay Area bruisers Zed claim to “make rock the way it should be made, with loud guitars, a dose of whiskey and a middle finger”.
Zed’s sound, we hear, “is grounded in heavy, gritty groove. If Led Zeppelin were punk rockers, they’d probably sound a lot like Zed. Or maybe if Black Flag started jamming to James Brown, they’d sound like Zed. Or maybe we don’t know what the hell we’re talking about…”
Here’s what they have to say about their Please lip: “We chose the song Please as our first video because not only is it the first cut on [upcoming second album] Desperation Blues but it also captures the energy and essence of our music. We spent three days filming it and had a lot of fun playing the bad guys who get their due. We kind of see it as paying homage to 70s Grindhouse films set to a rockin’ soundtrack.”
They’re not far wrong. The video starts off with some harmless pole-dancing shenanigans before getting seriously out of hand…
Desperation Blues is set for release on May 21. If you’d like to pre-order the album now you can do so at: http://zedisded.bandcamp.com
