ZEN is the name of several different artists: 1) Zen is a Dutch rock band, founded by Siegfried 'Siebe' de Jong (vocals and saxophone) and Dirk van der Ploeg (guitar and vocals) in 1965. Van der Ploeg writes the lyrics, music and arrangements. The hippie-oriented one hit wonder band hits the top spot on the Dutch Top 40 singles chart in January 1969, with their version of the theme from the musical Hair..
Since the Sluts of Trust first unleashed their wildly original brand of sleazy rock music to an unsuspecting audience at King Tut's on New Year's Eve 2002, they have become something of a phenomenon in their home town of Glasgow. Comprising John McFarlane's salacious lyrics of sexual combat and skuzzy, roller-coaster guitar-work and the incessant ferocity of Roo Harris' athletic drumming, the band's blistering performances command an immediate and intense response. Following a UK tour and dates in Europe, the band released a limited edition debut single which sold out in a week.
There's something comforting about a band name that delivers exactly what you are expecting to hear. The band realizes the potential for a sort of kitsch status being inadvertently placed upon them. However those curious to dig deeper will quickly realize their conviction for delivering authentic and original hard rock tunes. The band was formed in 2009 by Jon Harvey (Bass & Lead vocals), Jeremy Widerman (Guitar & Vocals), Brandon Bliss (Organ & Vocals) and Steve Kiely (Drums & Vocals) as somewhat of a side-project for their other more serious bands (The Reason, Saint Alvia).

Soon after, bass player Bob Gerritsen completed the band. The objective was clear and simple: to make heavy, groovy rock music the way it was meant since 1969. Influenced by Black Label Society, Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Karma to Burn, Transport League, Goatsnake and the wave of nineties grunge and stoner, ZEUS developed their sound.
