Spinitron is reporting that KZSC Santa Cruz 88.1 FM‘s playlist for Sunday February 23, 2014 included the title track from ZED’s 2013 release, Desperation Blues. The cut was played at 7:07 pm, just before B.B. King and Led Zeppelin. Not bad company!

You can check out the playlist here.

Thanks for the love, KZSC!

ZEDHEADS would like to thank Bucky Brown over at The Sludgelord for including ZED’s Desperation Blues on his list of ‘Top 25 albums of 2013!”  You can view the entire list here, which was published February 22, 2014.

Once again 2013 blew me away with the quality and quantity of releases that passed through my ears. It was painstaking picking out a top 25 and I had over 100 albums that on any given day could have made this list. But it came down to album plays and overall impact for me.

I did some looking around on The Sludgelord website and really liked it. They feature bands that fall within the Stoner/Doom/Sludge/Fuzz/Post-Metal/Experimental/Black Metal/Psych genres. Check ’em out!

‘Rain’ – track #7 from Desperation Blues.

Happy February ZEDHEADS!

Just wanted to share a few quick updates to our website.

We just finished creating ringtones for every song off ‘Desperation Blues’ in both .mp3 and .m4r formats. You can download as many as you like, for free, from our ringtones page. You don’t have to register or sign up for anything, and you won’t be added to any mailing lists. It’s about as clean of a process as you can get.

Our tour page has been updated, with three new shows coming up in March and April. Come on out and rock with ZED!

We have also added an audio page with links to every song from Desperation Blues, which are hosted on ZED’s Bandcamp page.

In the near future we will begin revising and updating our Programs and Ideas pages with new (and fun) ways to help spread the rock gospel that is ZED! Stay tuned for more…

Finally, if you haven’t done so yet, please consider joining the ZED Street Team. It’s doesn’t obligate you to anything, and you can earn guest list passes for you and a friend to a future ZED show! We’ll even comp you some ZED stickers just for signing up. Needless to say we will protect your email address with unrivaled passion, and a singleness of purpose; no spam!

That’s all for now – thanks for checking in.

DRUM|PRIME’s editor-in-chief had the opportunity to sit down with Bay Area drummer, Rich Harris, to talk about his work with his band, Zed. In this audio cast, we get a glimpse into the band, as well as Rich’s approach to the drums, his influences, and gear.

Here’s a ‘Desperation Blues’ promotional video featuring the ZED epic, ‘The River’ along with excerpts from the many great reviews the album has received. Please feel free to use the share buttons that appear below this post! Help spread the word by sharing this video on Facebook, and by sharing the video with your friends, fellow music fans, radio stations, posting on forums, etc!

I finally got to catch a live ZED show at Victory Lounge in Seattle on July 20th, and they did not disappoint! Had a great time hanging with the guys, and actually caught myself playing ‘air drums’ during The River. The venue was small, but the band was well received by those who stayed late enough to catch the show (there were 2 supporting acts, Trashcan Wizard and Greenriver Thrillers).

The true test of any band is the ability to deliver in a live setting – and I am here to tell you that ZED is the real deal! I can’t wait until the next time they’re in town. If you get a chance to see ZED perform live, don’t miss it!
