ZEKE live!
(West Coast Punk & Trash/Seattle, USA)
AD/AC MOTÖRWELT live!
(Munich)
TEAR THEM DOWN live!
(Schweden)

“Ride With Zeke” has quickly become the mantra for music fans who have accepted the invitation brought on by Heckler Magazine when they said, “Welcome the new monsters of rock.” It’s no doubt true that West Coast punk / thrashers ZEKE are monsters. Ever since their very first gig at the Rock City in Seattle in 1993, people have had no choice but to pay attention. Their records will assault you, and their live show will batter you. ZEKE established a nasty disposition while cutting teeth on their own brash hardcore punk.

ZEKE formed in 1993 with an original lineup of Blind Marky Felchtone, Donny Paycheck, Mark Pierce, and Dizzy Lee Roth. The band’s first release was 1993’s West Seattle Acid Party, a single on Wrecking Ball Records, followed by the Holley 750 single on IFA Records. ZEKE then set out to bring their energetic recordings to the stage and established a more than formidable reputation as “the live band to beat” via concentrated regional touring. The self titled single Zeke was then released on Scooch Pooch Records and was followed by the 1995 release Super Sound Racing. ZEKE then hit the road again, unveiling a devastatingly high-octane live assault. The band was heralded as “Rock and Roll outlaws,” playing every conceivable venue that would have them.

Throughout the time that ZEKE called Epitaph home, they toured relentlessly. The band paired up with anyone and everyone who would have them, hitting the road with the likes of Jerry Cantrell (Alice in Chains), All, Voodoo Glow Skulls, D.O.A., Supersuckers and even a few dates with Pearl Jam. The band toured the U.S., Europe, Japan and Australia, spreading their rock while breaking all the rules. ZEKE played everything from stadiums with 50,000 people, to bars with 10 people, but the spirit remained the same; rock like this might be the last show ever. After leaving Epitaph and releasing 2003’s Live and Uncensored, ZEKE began writing new material and set out looking for a suitable label that they could not only feel at home with, but one that could handle their “balls to the wall” rock and roll and enjoy the band as fans first. A contract with Relapse was inked in October, 2003 and saw the band join an artist stable that are at once musically mated and touring compatible. ZEKE found their new home. ZEKE set the cruise control to “white hot” on their Relapse debut, ‘Til the Livin’ End. A relentless ride of rock and roll abandon, the album mixes punk nihilism with a hard hitting metal extravagance. It burns from start to finish, as super-charged guitars, electrifying leads and a raucous punk attitude race full-throttle down a highway to Hell. Thank the gods of rock and roll, you’ve just met your new favorite band.

Die Idee zu AD/AC Motörwelt wurde im Herbst 1987 geboren, im Bierdunst der benebelten Gehirne von Marty, Harty und Clarky. Die Drei hatten seit Ende der 70er Jahre schon in diversen Bands mitgespielt. Silvester 1887 kam es dann jedoch zum ersten AD/AC Motörgig und im Februar schon folgte der Zweite als Anheizer für “In Cold Blood”. 1989 kam Suppi in die Band, mit ihm hatte AD/AC Motörwelt einen Frontmann, der wirklich super passte. Es dauerte dann auch nicht lange bis General Winter die Idee eines Münchner Punk-Rock Samplers zur Wirklichkeit werden ließ: “How We Drink Is How We Rock” – ein Meilenstein! Durch den Sampler wollten immer mehr Leute AD/AC Motörwelt hören und schon bald folgte die erste LP der Band. Zu dieser Zeit fanden auch die legendären AD/AC Motörgigs statt, in denen der Kulthit “Reign In Beer” vom Publikum sofort in die Tat umgesetzt wurde: wahre Bierduschen! Es ging immer schneller voran auf dem highway to hell, eine große Deutschlandtour war in Planung. Doch dann musste sich die AD/AC Motörwelt leider von Suppi trennen, wodurch alle Tourpläne platzen. Ein Jahr später verschlug es Harty in die USA und danach nach Berlin. Clarky warf das Drummer-Handtuch, aber Marty hielt die Band-Idee hoch und am Leben. Martys andere Bandprojekte in diesert Zeit: Slutfreak, Born Bavarians, The Politicians (jaja!) zu denen kam 2000 Smarty (früher bei SixPäx) als Drummer dazu . 2001 hatte Harty die Berliner Schnauze voll und ging zurück nach München: AD/AC Motörwelt startete erneut mit Marty, Harty und Smarty durch, wie früher, in klassischer 3er Besetzung: Git, Bass, Drums. Mehr braucht´s auch nicht für ordentlich auf die Ohren!
