This made my day...............

A review of my band appeared on this site:

Here it is:

 
" Zed’s Dead @ The Malt Shovel 25/05/12

The old adage goes that any band is only as good as its weakest link. This is certainly true in my experience. The best bands, of course, don’t have a weakest link at all…

Enter Brighton based Zed’s Dead. A perfect example of a band where every musician is as good as the next. Powerful rock vocals, a seriously good but understated guitarist and a driving rhythm section to die for.

By two songs in, the small but growing crowd in The Malt Shovel were paying attention. By the end of the first set people were dancing. By the end of the night pretty much everyone was, including me (not pretty…).
 
The set list threw up few surprises on the whole - a fairly standard selection of classic rock and pop covers - but when the band is this good, who cares? Clapton, Hendrix, The Doors, The Cult, all the usual suspects were in evidence, but with all the important details faithfully reproduced and all delivered with aplomb. (Whatever that is, I never saw the plomb myself…)

All in all, a cracking night out at an excellent pub with one of the best covers bands I‘ve seen in the town for a while. Ones to watch out for!

Nice one. If you have made Stan happy then you have done very well. I am going to look out for you- trouble is, I am out most weeks gigging too.
Congratulations- that is a great review.

Send me as gig list. I've got quite a few gigs lined up but there's a few gaps as well. If you're playing anywhere near me I'll come along and say hello. Got anything at The Welly in Shoreham ?
