Ground Zero - Plays Standards (CD)
Release Date: 12/03/13
Throughout the 90's Otomo Yoshihide's Ground Zero were one of the key bands on the Japanese underground, releasing a number of seminal albums and touring the world with a mind crushing live show. 'Plays Standards' is perhaps their most traumatically joyous recording. It's a manic roller coaster ride through Western favourites like 'Those Were the Days' and 'Say a Little Prayer', kitsch Japanese TV themes like 'Ultra Q', contemporary alternative classics from Fred Frith and Steve Beresford, and even some Brecht and Eisler.
