New Zealand Artist: Zed
Wherever you are and whatever you're doing, when Zed's 'Renegade Fighter' comes on the radio, you'd better keep your guard up - because this song packs a punch! From the first chords of its overdriven guitars, to its clever harmonies, to the final echo of its hook-heavy chorus, the debut track from Zed is equal parts menace and vulnerability, charm and arrogance. In short, it's 100% pure rock'n'roll, no imitations accepted.
Originally formed while they were still students at Christchurch's Cashmere High, Zed is the dream child of Nathan King, Ben Campbell and Adrian Palmer, all of whom found they shared a passion for guitar pop - fuelled by their parents old Beatles records, a bit of Crowded House, and today's radio stars Supergrass and Radiohead.
This Little Empire debuted in the Official New Zealand Top 40 Albums on 9 November 2003. It has been in the Top 40 Albums for 13 weeks with a highest position of #4. There are three albums by Zed in the Top 40 Albums with one reaching Number One.
