The fantastical story of Zadok. Secret Gig Thanks. Ear Plugs.

If, like many visitors to this blog, you are new to the music of Zadok, the following things might be of interest. Youtube channel (with live footage and japes). Facebook page (now with added social connectivity and attendant paranoia). Believe it or not, you can still find us on Myspace, but don’t bother. One day we’ll just sack that off, but we’re waiting for news corp to send us some money. However, there is now another mint way to engage with the tendril-equipped Kraken monolith that is Progressive Grunge-folk. It’s a tumblr page that Al has been putting together for people photosensitive to the colour scheme of the Zadok blog, which is where you are. So, stay safe, and get a different perspective on our popular music group here. This fine web page features the entire libretto of our forthcoming massive prog and roll epic, Agitated molecule. If you want, you can see a preview video of the intro for this tune on the aforementioned youtube channel. This preview was recorded in video format a few months ago when Franko and Pete were still at university. Now none of us are at university and the crack is, there’s no better use for four pairs of hands than Progressive Grunge-folk, except maybe dry stone walling for charity, so please support your local musical adventurers so maybe they won’t fall apart under the hydraulic Moloch pressure.

A Good Thing

Heroically, Al has spent a large wedge of time chronicling the adventures and photographic capture-slides pertaining to our band over the last two or three years. Indeed, since the beginning. You are required by law to read through the whole thing each time something new is added.

Check it out here.

PS Thanks to everyone who made it down last night to the secret gig in the Room. It was well ventilated and pleasant. I had to skedaddle early but Knuckle Dragger, by all accounts, were canny radge despite Shabbs busting his knuckle. Druganaut sounded pretty raw, one day I will see them close up. Remember to wear ear plugs at loud gigs or you’ll regret it sooner or later. For a long time we used foam ear plugs, which are shite soundwise, but which will definitely protect your eardrums. 3/4 members of Zadok recommend these ear plugs, which are the cheapest kind of vented plugs you can get but which do the job fine with much more subletly than foam. Get some!  See you later then. CM
