Critic and hydiosincratic music made of drums, bass, and saxophones . Some call it freejazz, no-wave, or hard-core. It's soul music. Springing out of nowhere ( e.c. the catholic block of Rome, Italy) in 1999, having spent 2 years closed in a basement finding its own voice ( hence the name Zu, closed in german), Zu finally released a first declaration of intents with the album Bromio ( the classical god Dyonisus, in its persona of god of noise). After that followed a further exploration of sonic possibilities with the american avant-guitar genius Eugene Chadbourne, and, again with EC, an attempt to destroy rock and jazz history with the album Motorhellington where you can hear Zu shredding their love for Jobim, Mingus, Motorhead and Kraftwerk. Having become more conscious and assertive, Zu went on to Chicago's Electrical Audio to record with Steve Albini the album Igneo, a loud rite of fire, wich Igneo means in latin. Essentially a live band, Zu then decided to release a Live in Hellsinki cd, from a gig of the 2002 nine weeks european tour.
