At this point we have worked with 15-20 songs, but it’s too early to say which ones will make it on the disc. Now we’re working with 24 tracks instead with 16, which gives more creative opportunities and possibilities. Yet the sound will remain the same, even if some surprises might pop up. So check back later to get more information ‘bout the recording sessions and to see some pics taken as the pieces are put right in place! (September, 5)

One other thing to check out is the review of Alligator Highway by Shari in Black Velvet Magazine # 39. The disc is said to “have quite an interesting sound – it’s rock with a hint of glam and a hint of punk – but done in a crazy, off-the-wall way that makes them [Zitter] seem not quite all there”. Shari is sure the Zitter “fans will love it”. And we sure hope she is right! To get yourself a copy of this great printed zine just go here!

Mark Hughson in New Wave Zine says “Zitter have the raw materials and potential to be commercially successful”. He thinks [t]he vocals are from that Metallica-type family, but not as creepy or annoying” and that the guitar licks "could start a brush fire if played loud enough”. Hughson also says Red House “is part ‘raise you devil horns’ and part ‘boogie down classic rock’”. Read the full review here! (February, 26)

Spelglädjen tycks vara total.” Read the full review here!
