Music: New Zealand Music Month – Zed

DebE —  May 25, 2012 — 2 Comments

On the home stretch, only a few days to go. And today I showcase the band known as Zed (just pointing out how us Kiwis pronounce the last letter of the alphabet … yes, it does spoil the song a bit, but, still, it’s just … it just is).

Zed aren’t around any more, but they were pretty cool in their day. One member of note would be Andy Lynch (the curly blonde-headed one on guitar). We first saw him playing guitar on a Just Juice ad many, many years ago. Then he turned up in Zed, then Atlas (along with Zed’s bass player Ben Campbell). When playing for Atlas, often supporting The Feelers, he would lend his talents to The Feelers, who are traditionally a three-piece, but tend to need a fourth when live (Opshop have been known to loan their guitarist, too). Oh, and now he plays for The Feelers officially. That boy gets around.

Anyway, this wasn’t meant to be about one person (but, it could be …) here is Zed:

And, I just have to post this one, too: “Oh! Daisy” – “What do you expect from someone who was named after a cow? Yeah, go figure.”




Deb E was born in New Zealand’s North Island, but her parents corrected that within months, moving south to Dunedin and staying there. Childhood nights were spent falling asleep to cover versions of Cliff Richard and the Shadows and other Rock ’n Roll classics played by her father’s band, and days were spent dancing to 45 LPs. Many of her first writing experiences were copying down song lyrics. She graduated to scientific reports when she studied a nematophagus fungus in the Zoology department of the University of Otago, trading all traces of popularity for usefulness… then traded both for fiction. Mum of one human & four fur-babies.
