Excellent, your show in Rotterdam. Enjoyed it immensely. Had to leave in a hurry afterward, so couldn't buy anything from your table: a t-shirt ( ? ), a poster, and the CD with the fat black letters on the cover. Is it still possible ( to buy these items )? Leo
Our record label Social Registry has everything in their on line store… www.thesocialregistry.com… Enjoy the music! Peace… S/ZS
Played a great show in Nuremberg, gonna post video from it later. After the show we met an American named Kian. She took us to a castle and then spontaneously sat in on harmonica with this folk singing bunch of Germans. They were covering that Cranberries song that Eminem took the chorus from. It was bugged out!
Thnks for the follow have been a huge fan since Zs in 03!
Any chance you will come and play in Cali (Long Beach) when you get back from overseas?
Not for some time, unless there is a very good offer. After this tour we are doing creative for a year or so. We’ll be releasing some things in various formats from now until our next full length drops which will likely be in 2013. We have a CDR release upcoming that we made special for the European tour, and we have a few other jams up our sleeve, but the main focus is scrapping the current set and building everything from scratch. Thanks for the good looks…
AUSTRIA: LAND OF CRITICAL THEORY, SERIALISM, AND KABINENSEX!
The Viennese are responsible for some seriously deep shit. Real talk… Adorno, for example, shit is deep. That said, you should all read his deeply racist and culturally relativistic essay about Jazz… But seriosuly, there are even a bunch of 30 something composers out here who are killing it pretty hard. Beat Furer and Bernhard Lang have actually impacted ZS writing a bit. Those dudes are way older then 30 actually, but 40 is the new 20…
But there is this other thing going on here called Kabinensex, which I think is basically having sex in a cabinet. This shit is EVERYWHERE! No matter where you are in Vienna you can just pop into a cabinet near by and have sex with someone that you pay. This does not appear to be relegated to a district of any sort. It’s just sort of available. I remember noticing this last time we were here but this time we walked from the hotel to the venue and seriously passed like 40 of these places. It’s the same business to block ratio as that of bodegas in NY. Shit is bugged!
But yo, not trying to be a square. Good looks to the Viennese! At least the shit is safe, and legal, and cats aren’t bugging if a bro or a sis wants to get their freak on. I quote the late Richard Prior on America’s values around this subject matter:
"In America if you talk about sex, you’re dirty, but if you kill someone, that’s cool… I don’t understand it, I’d rather cum!"
Hilarious as usual, and spot on with the social commentary, that dude was one of the great artists of the 20thC. RIP! At any rate, just thought I’d touch in with you cats about that. More pics video and sound soon!
The first thing we encountered in Slovakia was an entirely fur couch. Then there was the play ground attached to the medieval church surrounded by barbed wire. The venue was extremely fly, arts collective type thing. Nice folks… Unfortunately the raging head ache I had nine that morning came rushing back as soon as we started playing and I spent the whole set feeling as though I was going to puke. JUST SAY NO!
Shot a bunch of fly graffiti pics below, they’re kind of killing it over here… Peep game! BTW, in spite of the head ache we killed… Just sayin’…
