ZULU AS KONO - S/T


Label : Bent Over Cowboy
Year : 1999

Zulu As Kono were a band from Austin,Texas circa 98-2002. In that short time as a band they managed to put out two full lengths and one split 7". The remaining members went on to from another band called "OH, BEAST!". I have had many a drunken night with their drummer Brandon Crowe and lived to tell about it.

If they would have stayed together, there is no doubt in my mind they would have quite the following. This being their first offering, and a limited press of 1000, it amazes me to see this pop up on some European blogs. Very Drive Like Jehu-ish at times. Zulu As Kono delivers good ole fashioned noise rock ala Texass style. Had Trance Syndicate still been around, they would probably put an album out for these guys. Included in the download is an 18 minute mp4 clip of them live at Emo's in Austin. Consisting of two bass players, a moog, two drummers at times and two guitar players, you can kind of get an idea that this isn't going to be your average noise rock fare. Dig in kids.. - Slander

Hot damn thanks for this!

I was lucky enough to see Zulu As Kono and Oh Beast! when they'd come up to Minneapolis to play shows with Sicbay. Great bands.

Yeah I miss those guys. Many a drunken story to be told. I will upload their second one soon. Gorch Fock is the next Texas band I'll be putting up. Cheers - Slander
