With their original line-up of drums, bass and saxophone, Zu have gradually developed into their current form of highly intricate experimental / metal / math / no-wave / free / noise / punk / jazz inspired work, breaking from the narrow confines of given music genres and incorporating a wide array of influences into a unique sound. Driven by a 'Black Flag' work ethic, Zu have played the astounding number of over 1000 gigs all over Europe, America, Canada, Asia, Russia and Africa, and have released 14 albums on such labels as Ipecac, Atavistic, Frenetic, Red Note, Public Guilt, Headz and Wallace.
Zu have collaborated with a vast number of recording partners including The Stooges’ Steve Mackay, Fugazi’s Joe Lally and Guy Picciotto, Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore, Can’s Damo Suzuki, jazz masters Ken Vandermark and Mats Gustafsson, percussionists Han Bennink and Hamid Drake, improvisationalist Eugene Chadbourne and the like-minded Nobukazu Takemura MacKay and shared tours and stages with Fantomas, The Melvins, Lightning Bolt, The Ex, Ruins, Dalek, NoMeansNo, Vandermark 5 and The Thing.
"Powerful and expressive music that totally blows away what most bands do these days" - John Zorn
“Musically they’re one mind only, ever-so-slightly inconvenienced by the necessity of being split into 3 bodies. Their post-human tightness and devious compositions have carried them across the world’s ocean, and attracted collaborators ranging from free-jazz legends to the godfathers of experimental sludge” - Rock-A-Rolla
Kong is not a name chosen by accident. All are / were / shall be in other, perhaps more commercially viable bands, which is notable only because it fills out their biography and creates the impression of a deeper back-story, which becomes, by definition, massively interesting to idiots.
“One of the best live bands in the UK right now” - Dan Carter BBC Radio 1
