Zig Zags

Zig Zags

Profile:
A trio from Los Angeles whose sound is a purposefully scuzzy fusion of punk, metal, stoner rock, and trailer trash culture, the Zig Zags were named after a brand of cheap shoes that guitarist and singer Jed Maheu and drummer Bobby Martin were both wearing when they first talked about starting a band in 2010 (though the fact the name is also similar to a popular brand of rolling papers seems quite fitting). Maheu and Martin began working up material, with both playing guitar; by the time they started recording their first single, it became obvious this lineup wasn't going to work for long, so Martin moved over to drums, and the band played a handful of shows as a duo. Patrick McCarthy met Maheu and Martin when he did sound for them at one of their first gigs, and he quickly became a friend and a fan; when they asked him to join the group as a bassist, he quickly said yes, even though he hadn't played the instrument before.

Current Line-up
