Today I am cheating. This is not a rock song. The Zips transcend rock. And jazz. And klezmer and swing and everything else. One of my saddest moments is traveling with college friends, realizing we were a walk away from one of their gigs–arriving after it sold out.
This song from their first album announces their intent, I’d say. It also allows me to point you to a tremendous essay written by the group’s own Tom Maxwell.
