An industrial act from Seattle in the Late 90’s, Tchkung! combined tribal drumming, scrap metal, fiddle use and anarcho-punk leanings into a potent mix.
Known for insurrectionary politics, incorporating traditional instruments and tribal/folk music into the scrap metal percussion and turbulent live shows digressing into street parades or molotov demonstrations, it was clear that unlike incitement to revolt, mainstream acceptance was never a goal. Fans of Cop Shoot Cop, Swans, or Crash Worship however will find much to enjoy.
Now broken up, members have gone on to form Infernal Noise Brigade.
