Since their humble beginning, Zebediah Plush have written, jammed and gigged with the intention of creating music that allows themselves and their audience to explore and express new feelings, at times, dabbed with nostalgia.
Since the release of an eponymous demo in 2003, and in 2005, their first album, Afterlaughs, the music of Zebediah Plush has percolated into classic rock, blues rock, progressive rock, even funk, psychedelia and jazz. Though Zebediah Plush's style varies from song to song, fluidity remains the core of their sound.
Zebediah Plush came into being in 2001, when the band found itself writing and composing their own songs rather earnestly. It comprised Anand, Avijit (Jitu), Arfaaz (Fuzzy) and Anup. With the dawn of 2002, Anup decided to pursue his fortunes with the merchant navy, and Anand quit an oppressive engineering course to join Christ College, where the original members of the band found themselves reconvened, minus bass player.
In various previous musical projects and encounters, each of the trio had met Anindita (Andy) who soon became bassist, and the band line up was sealed. The band also had an edifying stint with Hari Adivarekar on lead vocals. The current line-up, however, remains: Arfaaz on drums and vocals, Anand on guitars and vocals, Avijit on keyboards and Anindita on bass.
Zebediah Plush has performed at various shows across India, be it solo, or alongside other prodigious bands.
Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, The Police, Whitesnake, Rush, Black Sabbath, The Beatles, Blue Oyester Cult, Emerson Lake and Palmer and suchlike.
Zebediah Plush has a new album - Afterlaughs.
The title "Afterlaughs" is a tribute to the band's ineffable infatuation with bad punning, atrocious humour and laughing at life in retrospect.
The album itself is a more serious affair, featuring 10 cuts that span the length of Zebediah Plush's four-year career including earlier radio-friendly hits like 'Elastic Man' and newer progressive songs like 'Sea of Stories' and 'Tea and Toast'.
