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.
All of this and more becomes real on the Zig Zags’ self-titled debut LP, recorded and produced by Ty Segall for In The Red. In 12 songs, they chainsaw through weirdo film and caveman rock and space noise and make smart sound so dumb it turns inside-out and becomes brilliant. Their very first 7” had a song scalled “Scavenger” cuz that’s what Zig Zags do—dig through garbage to find genius. In 2014, it turns out they did make their ripping record. But it’s up to you to figure out the twist ending.
The happy tale of the Danish R%B darlings in CHINAH continues. After a magical debut at Store Vega, sold-out concerts and not least the honour of being awarded with P3's talent prize in 2016, the duo will be coming to studenterhuset in 2017
