“When things around you look quite dim, try a little Zim Zam Zim.” – Arthur Brown

This Wednesday, iconic UK heavy psychedelic progressive eccentrics THE CRAZY WORLD OF ARTHUR BROWN will kick off their Zim Zam Zim US tour. Marking their first run of live performances since 1969, the band’s monumental trek will commence on February 15th in Los Angeles and end on February 25th in Austin. Support will be provided by Ohio rockers Electric Citizen, and shows will feature generational sonic offspring like White Hills, Acid King, Pallbearer, Danava, and Jex Thoth.

Zim Zam Zim takes its name from THE CRAZY WORLD OF ARTHUR BROWN‘s latest album, released in 2014 on Bronze Rat Records.

Comments Arthur Brown, “Two doses of Zim Zam Zim a day will increase vigor, stamina, clarity, virility, eternity, infinity, bank deposits etc., remove yucky deposits from your washbasin pipe and bring you jollity, frivolity, novelty, and quality. When things around you look quite dim, try a little Zim Zam Zim.”

As a precursor to the tour’s kick off, today Rolling Stone is premiering THE CRAZY WORLD OF ARTHUR BROWN’s “Jungle Fever” video alongside an in-depth interview with Brown at THIS LOCATION.

Arthur Brown – The God Of Hellfire – will be celebrating fifty years since releasing the debut single “Devil’s Grip,” which helped shape the British and worldwide psychedelic movement. Pushing theatrics to their dystopian hellscape limits would earn Brown acolytes in everyone from David Bowie and Alice Cooper to Kiss, Marilyn Manson, and Lady Gaga to the entire genre of black metal. His influence continues to spread today.
