Even the french like ZOO

"Gloriously mad! Hailing from Indonesia, Zoo combine the avant-punk of The Ex with the stop/go rock-in-opposition of Etron Fou Leloublan (or Ruins) and the pluristylistic craziness of Mr. Bungle or Sebkha-Chott. Loaded? You bet! 22 short pieces grouped into three movements, each track a one-two punch, yet no over-homogeneity issues – the music ranges from punk to tribal folk. Quality musicianship, clear artistic vision, and an excellent reassesment of Rock-in-Opposition’s heritage. Somewhere between Melt Banana and Savage Republic! I am thrilled after one listen. Pay attention to these guys!"
