Japanese Noise Makers ZENI GEVA Conclude UK Tour in London Tomorrow

Japanese prog-hardcore unit ZENI GEVA will conclude their UK tour tomorrow, Tuesday 23 October, at London’s Corsica Studios.  The pioneering group is led by singer and guitarist KK Null and was founded in Tokyo in 1987. They quickly established a dedicated fan base in Europe and the US. Their popularity in the west enabled ZENI GEVA to be one of the first Japanese bands to tour in Europe and the US with bands like Bastro, Crash Worship, Dazzling Killmen, Don Caballero, Eyehategod, Melvins, Neurosis, Pain Teens, Shellac and more.

Steve Albini rates ZENI GEVA as one of his favourite bands. He highlights the band’s wide range of influences for keeping the ZENI GEVA sound diverse and challenging. Steve also admires the way ZENI GEVA embrace the Japanese culture in their sound rather than trying to Westernise it.

ZENI GEVA has released 12 albums and recorded twice for John Peel Session on BBC.

The band will also be joining the likes of MELT BANANA and MONO at the All Tomorrow’s Party’s Nightmare Before Christmas event this November/December. With those three on the line-up, that’s us sold!

About Tom Smith
Some say he's fuelled on nothing but energy drinks, and that when he visits Japan, he spends the whole time engaging the ground in an all too familiar way. But what we do know is that his words on the country's entertainment and culture find their way into NEO Magazine on a monthly basis, while everything else finds its way here. Be it quirky news item from the Land of the Rising Sun, or a story so gruesome it'd be rude not to pass it on, you'll find it here along with his general posts about life, work and most importantly play. And yes, he has had articles printed in the likes of MCV, GamesMaster, 360 Gamer and more, thanks for noticing.
