My advice to anyone who doesn’t know Zeeb is leave now, before you’re drawn into their insane and delusional world forever. Zeeb are a band consisting of three aliens sent to assimilate earth, but who are fortunately “a bit shite at ‘battle and stuff.” This EP documents their fight to save Zeeb Beta- technically a sort of planetary holiday home- and comes with a free comic book, containing what I think must have been the best bits of their days graffiti-ing school desks.
The EP opens and closes with an instru-mental track, both of which have a very dramatic distorted orchestral feel- reflecting the epic struggle for the band’s own Butlins. The highlights here though are the surf-punk Alternative Tentacles style tracks though such as ‘She-Bot’ and ‘Detachable Ed’. (28/09/06)
