Los Angeles scuzz punks Zig Zags are back in action! Famous Class Records releases 4 songs bursting with more metal, punk, hardcore, pop and 7 Seconds covers, than your human mind can handle. Beware of Cronenberg-style head explosions! Opening track, “Gröth” kicks things off with fuzzed-out bass over hardcore riffing. Next comes “Slime” which sounds like early Metallica fighting off a gang of Cannibalistic Humanoid Underground Dwellers! The B-side finds Zig Zags veering into classic pop/punk territory with the irresistible, “Sunken City”, an ode to San Pedro and their heroes in The Minutemen. And finally - the worship culminates in a cover of the 7 Seconds track “We’re Gonna Fight” - this one recorded alive and on the airwaves. So turn up the stereo… and flip the fuck out!
Zig Zags started in a room lit by a single green light, going on to record a song with Iggy Pop and an album with Ty Segall, from playing house parties for pizza to staring off the stage at the Fillmore West. Theirs is the nightmare of the insane and the all-too-normal, the Bermuda Triangle between sci-fi and lo-fi and no-budget, the Twilight Zone twist ending where it turns out everyone ELSE was an alien the whole time. When Cliff Burton wore that Misfits shirt? Zig Zags. When the Emergency Broadcast System interrupts that John Carpenter movie? Zig Zags. When a soggy pile of Thrasher mags and Jack Kirby comics spill out of a dumpster behind the Sunday School? Zig Zags. When the Ramones were scared of the basement and the Angry Samoans couldn’t find the right side of their mind? Zig Zags. When a kid breaks his elbow copying a WWF heel’s piledriver and starts laughing instead of crying? Zig Zags. And when the electricity goes off forever and torchlight reflects off chrome? Zig Zags. They chainsaw through weirdo film and caveman rock and space noise and make smart sound so dumb it turns inside-out and becomes...brilliant.
