Zeke: The Sound of Seattle Hardcore In the '90s

Duff McKagan's column runs every Thursday on Reverb. He writes about what music is circulating through his space every Monday.
After all of the major labels had left Seattle in the wake of the 'grunge' craze, the area was left to just get back to business-as-usual; kick ass rock n roll.

Anyone from around here certainly knows about Zeke, and a lot of you out there in the rest of world may have seen them when they came to your town on one of their endless tour cycles. This is gear-head, tattoo, blue-collar rock and roll at its very, VERY best in my opinion.

I will write about songs here just from the Flat Tracker record. By all means, explore further into Zeke's catalogue if you like these.

"T500," Flat Tracker: A top-fueled blitzkrieg of Les Paul guitars and Marshall stacks.

"Chiva Kenieval," Flat Tracker: A witty title about the downside of heroin.

"Overkill," Flat Tracker: I feel like a snot-nosed kid when I here this song, usually at a tattoo shop. This record got me through more than a few long drives on tour.
