Zeeb? Are a bunch of crazy music making intergalactic explorers who play a crazy blend of rock and indie mixed in with a whole load more. Based in Ipswich they sing about their galactic travels mixed in with a whole lot of sexual perversion. With their third album just about to come out it seemed like a great time to chat with them…if you can make sense of this, then great…it’s just what I’d have expected from Zeeb?
Anyways, enough of me speaking shite, here’s Zeeb?…
Welcome, so what’s going on in the world of Zeeb right now?
Don’t know, we’ve been earthbound since The Battle For Zeeb? Beta.
I understand there is a new album on the horizon, what can we expect from this?
This album had an unusually long gestation period, which is why it took 2 years to record and finally came out early February. People can expect an F and a G side, with everything they want to expect from an album. Including a secret code revealing the secret to life, the universe and everything. There’s also a superhero with the superpower of no superpowers, apart from the power to ooze (a bit like Slimer).
I’ve read a load of reviews of your previous albums, some very complimentary, some confused, some not so. Do you think it’s more the fact that some people just don’t get Zeeb?
We’ve had everything from “to eclectic to pigeonhole or enjoy” to “sexually inert bed wetters start bands like this”. We’d like to think they are right and take pleasure in others debating our sex lives, or indeed their own.
What can we expect from a Zeeb live show?
Bollock conkers, pure unadulterated entertainment, an impressive display of voluntary tourettes.
Rumour has it you’re all actually aliens who landed many years ago but seem to have settled in Ipswich. Out of all the places you must have visited in the galaxy, what made you choose to settle in Ipswich?
We landed in Shropshite and moved to Ipswich because it allowed us to hide our sexual deviance in other people’s sisters mouths, and the house prices were quite reasonable.
Which other bands from Ipswich should we mortals be checking out?
Finger Kuffs (to give a quick explanation – Bowling For Soup but with more cunt), These Are End Times (depressing noodling), Bring Back Her Head (Sonic Youth defiling Violent Playground).
`Amoeba Man` because we’ve crammed in 12 distinct styles into one song……….and it’s got Viking bits in it!
Do you feel that the internet is a positive thing for bands like Zeeb?
Well there’s porn, nuns falling over and metalocalypse. What else is there??
How do you feel about people like Lars Ulrich moaning about downloading whilst he sits there is his multi million dollar house?
Some people need to remember what it was like, just being pleased with what they’ve created. We’re ecstatic that people like listening to Zeeb. If they want to give us cash, we’ll only spend it on lanacane. There’s nothing better than a lanacane wank.
What one moment has been the most fun in the history of Zeeb?
We have a huge catalogue of stories that involve homoerotica and anti-bacterial spray (a light misting is far superior to a coarse wipe).
Thanks very much Zeeb, good luck with the new album, we look forward to hearing it!
