Blasting Rod

Contact artist


Based in Nagoya, the group has been active since July 2006. It has evolved with various members from Post-Rock informed Rock'n'Roll into Freedööm, a fusion of Free Improvisation, Raga Rock, and Drone with Doom influenced Modal Psychedelic composition. Shah leads the collective, "adding an ethnic mood, and Oriental minimalism to American Roots Music."  Juzo, who is composer/drummer for "Mad Tapes Erase Group," returns after a year's absence. Likewise, bassist Shunji Miyoshi (Ketsu Midoro) is returning following an eight-month break. Guest trumpeter Hitoshi Nagasaka rounds out the lineup for this performance.
