Zeid Hamdan, the man behind Soapkills, New Government, and countless others, was the guest of Ruptures to showcase his new project, Zeid & The Wings. The band performed live in the studios of Radio Lebanon (5 songs, no less), and spoke at length about its numerous activities, including its appearance in the much-touted Shankaboot concert extravaganza.
