Zeke: Show Preview

Taking cues from the high-octane, destructo punk of The Dwarves, the Seattle-based reprobates who make up Zeke first came together amid the monolithic early-1990s rise of grunge. Anchored by founding members Blind Marky Felchtone (guitar/vocals) and drummer Donny Paycheck, Zeke grafted '70s guitar heroics to meth-fueled hardcore tempos with explosive results. Its first two frenetic albums — Super Sound Racing in '94 and Flat Tracker in '96 — were packed with scorching 90-second odes to sex, drugs and fast cars/motorcycles. Relentless road work during that decade and subsequent releases for Epitaph helped earn Zeke a rabid cult, but the band's activity has been far more sporadic of late.
