“Zevious split the difference between the Tony Williams Lifetime and the 80s Downtown scene…[they make] algebraic music feel wholly organic , almost swinging.“ – Jazz Times // „…Zevious is for anyone who loves aggressive, rock-oriented improv with grooves and some semblance of a song…these guys put their music degrees to work…letting us know that being intense doesn’t mean you can’t have arrangements and following a script doesn’t mean you can’t let your hair down.“ – DownBeat
Zevious are a trio—guitarist Mike Eber, drummer Jeff Eber (cousins, not brothers), and bassist Johnny DeBlase. They started out as jazzbos in 2006, but they got over it; they „went electric,“ as the old folks say, with DeBlase putting down his upright bass and Mike Eber picking up the Telecaster that gives his tightly knotted lines their sting. The music they wrote shifted from jazz chords and head-nodding swing to tumbling, noisy rock that recalls instrumental-skronk powerhouses like Don Caballero, the Nels Cline Singers, Dysrhythmia (for whom Jeff also plays), Behold…The Arctopus, Hyrrokkin, King Crimson (circa 1975), James “Blood” Ulmer, and more.
Their first release for Cuneiform, After The Air Raid, rightly gained them a lot of attention for their modern and powerful approach to electric jazz. The group gathered good press and enthusiastic audiences, as the band spent a good bit of 2010 and 2011 touring.
