Last year I stumbled into a tiny packed club on Austin's 6th Street during the SXSW festival just in time to catch the last couple songs of the Zico Chain's set. With Chris Zico's frenetic platinum blond hair, the blistering guitar runs, and the waves of energy emanating from the stage, you could have imagined yourself projected back in time to see a young pre-bleach Nirvana.
This year the Zico Chain is back for SXSW armed with a whole new pack of songs in the kit bag and have promised us another smokin' hot set. Even without the golden locks, the comparison to early Nirvana is still fitting. Chris took a few minutes to chat with us about their gig at this years SXSW and touring with Alkaline Trio and Disturbed. Click on the player link under the fold to listen to the interview.
