about

A Nomad is one who roams or journeys from place to place. Nomad Eel has the view that music and art go hand in hand on this journey. As our motto states, ".where the music takes you!" Having said this, I am psyched to introduce one of my favorite bands for Nomad Eel's first release! I've been a huge fan of them since I'd seen them in Austin during Ty Segall's Spider House Ragger. A year later they recorded live on the radio. Before and after the live recording they have had one acclaimed release after another ranging from a cassette compilation with Burger Records, a split 7" with Iggy Pop on Light In The Attic, and two hard hitting full length LPs with In
The Red Records and Castle Face. In Zig-Zag's own words their story on the long strange trip to recording live at KXLU 88.9 in Los Angeles:

Stupidly I had booked us a show in San Francisco on Saturday and also Austin on Monday. Ya see it was the start of SXSW and we had a $100 dollar guarantee to play a showcase at 4pm. We needed that $100. I had also set us up with a deal to distribute the L.A. Record a local music rag while we were in Texas. When you're in a punk band sometimes it helps to get a side hustle going for gas and food and beer and what have ya. So basically we had to get moving. I've asked myself this too many times and it's gotten me in trouble just as many, "What would Black Flag Do?"

Well we left 'Frisco (The ones that are left hate that) at 11am and made it back to LA to grab some shit by about 5. That gave us roughly 24 hours of straight driving to make it to Austin for the showcase. The next 1400 or so miles are a bit of haze filled with hallucinations, lost wallets and other assorted waking nightmares. I awoke as the sun rose to see Dane who was driving (no license mind you) slapping himself in the face. I figured at that point we should pull over for a minute. Long story short we made it to the club 30 minutes before we were supposed to play. I don't remember much from the rest of the week except the cops showed up a couple times and we broke some furniture. Ya know the usual.

Anyway as soon as we got back from Austin we headed down to KXLU to record this live set. There's something special about the way we played this one and way it was recorded. Its got an old school lo-fi metal quality to the vocals that we have never been able to replicate on any other recordings. You can tell how loose we are after surviving Texas and it comes through in the performance and the interview. As we were leaving the campus at about 4 AM I backed into a "Stop" sign and knocked it over. We all started laughing as I gunned the van outta there. "The fucker came outta nowhere!"
