TATSUYA YOSHIDA (RUINS – ALONE) + Guests
SAT 8 & SUN 9 AUG ’09
“The undisputed master drummer of the Japanese Underground”
Next weekend Cafe Oto will host Tatsuya Yoshida aka Ruins, a Japanese musician making exciting high energy music that fuses contemporary sounds with elements of hard core and progressive rock.
Tatsuya has been working on his unique mix of drums, vocals and electronics since the 1980’s and has collaborated with a range of Japanese musical luminaries such as Acid Mothers Temple and Keiji Haino. He is now highly acclaimed as one of the most innovative drummer/improvisers on the Japanese avant garde music scene.
This is one event we will definitely be attending; I saw a Ruins performance back in 2006 and his frenzied performances really are pretty electric to witness. His live shows are much talked about so I am sure this event will sell out.
Ruins will also be performing on Friday 7th August at the Serpentine Gallery also organised by Cafe Oto, further details here
** As we’ve mentioned before, Cafe Oto is also a really unique venue; it’s sparky atmosphere, eclectic music programming, minimal warehouse style feel and array of oishii Japanese drinks and snacks (with occasional okonomiyaki) we think all make it a pretty special place very worthy of continuing support.
