Always on the cutting-edge, Zeus began wearing make-up and rode the crest of the early Glam Rock wave into the 80’s Power Pop era, making a name for themselves in the Live Music Capital of the World, Austin, TX.
Reminiscent of classics T. Rex, Cheap Trick or Kiss, Zeus’ Teach Me delivers the stadium rock essence of leather pants and glitter.
Teach Me aired in episode 102 of the AMC show, on Aug 18th. It is from the Fervor Records release Zeus Anthology Vol. 1 available on iTunes.Read More
The Spectacular Now, a teen relationship drama from Smashed director James Ponsoldt, made a big splash at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, and included two unreleased vintage tracks from the Fervor vault.
Well now the film is showing in theaters nationwide, and an official soundtrack drops next week, featuring the two Fervor artist cuts.
With a cast of legends and rising stars (Jennifer Jason Leigh, Shailene Woodley) and a screenplay written by the same team that delivered the hit 500 Days Of Summer, there is a lot of buzz surrounding this John Hughes-esque coming of age film….and Fervor is in the thick of it with two classic 1970’s rock tunes from the archives.
One of the Fervor selections is Farming Man (1976) by the Tennessee River Crooks, which has that unmistakable Southern Rock sound, a la The Allman Brothers.
From the other side of the mid-70’s rock coin, audiences will also hear The Riff (1977) by New York Punk godfathers, Just Water, who were regulars at CBGB’s and contemporaries of The Ramones, The Talking Heads, Blondie and more.
Both tracks, which were previously commercially unavailable, are slated to be released on the film’s official soundtrack, available on iTunes Tuesday, August 20th.

A couple weeks ago the video debuted on The Freshmen, a show that broadcasts on the college-oriented MTV channel. It was up against 4 other new videos from the world at large, including an electro-pop duo from Australia.
Fans were able to vote on which one hits heavy on the air, and their choice was the all-Spanish single Por Que Sequir from Barrio Sideshow, by Arizona’s Latin Ska Punk trio Fayuca.
As the video itself proposes, there is definitely strength in numbers. Thanks to all the fans and supporters for helping make this happen!
