The Japonize Elephants



String the banjo. Lick the reeds. Pack the bowl? The lives of The Japonize Elephants are ones an outsider can never comprehend. Brought together by obsessions for pirate culture, robots, Bill Monroe and bacon, the Emporrq of Zorlock steers this nine-person tribe through a catacomb of musical styles at hyper speeds. 1997's Bob's Bacon Barn, the group's first release, gives a glimpse the band's frightening capablities. Their musical goulash smells of bluegrass sauteed with a Spanish Middle-eastern spice and smattered with hardcore Irish peppers, yet is not so easy to pin down.

The Japonize Elephants subsequently released Le Fete du Cloune-Pirate in 1998.
