Great Rock and Roll doesn't just happen. It's made. With sweat, swagger and alcohol. And Zed makes rock the way it should be made. Loud guitars, a shot of whiskey and a middle finger.

With this explosive sound they are bringing back the guts, the grit and the balls to Rock. And they won't stop until they succeed. At least in getting drunk and having a good time.
