Zeke: Show Preview 

Wednesday, Jun 13 2012

Taking cues from the high-octane, destructo punk of The Dwarves, the Seattle-based reprobates who make up Zeke first came together amid the monolithic early-1990s rise of grunge. Anchored by founding members Blind Marky Felchtone (guitar/vocals) and drummer Donny Paycheck, Zeke grafted '70s guitar heroics to meth-fueled hardcore tempos with explosive results. Its first two frenetic albums — Super Sound Racing in '94 and Flat Tracker in '96 — were packed with scorching 90-second odes to sex, drugs and fast cars/motorcycles. Relentless road work during that decade and subsequent releases for Epitaph helped earn Zeke a rabid cult, but the band's activity has been far more sporadic of late.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
