Zen Guerrilla were a band from San Francisco, California. Musically, the band evolved over their career. Their early sound was characterized by elements, such as delayed guitars and noise washes. Later, Zen Guerrilla fused , and to create a sound which could be likened to bands such as the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion.

History
Zen Guerrilla formed in Newark, Delaware in the late 80s. Band members Andy Duvall (drums), Marcus Durant (vocals/harmonica), Carl Horne (bass), and Rich Millman (guitar) came together from local bands Marcus Hook, The Gollywogs, and Stone Groove.

The band released their self-titled CD on Philadelphia-based Compulsiv records in 1992. Soon after, Zen Guerrilla moved to Philadelphia and were regular performers around the city at clubs such as the Kyber Pass Pub. Around this time the band began a grueling touring schedule, which would have them cross the country multiple times through the end of the decade.

Zen Guerrilla relocated to San Francisco in 1994. Their constant touring increased their exposure, and, combined with their explosive live show, helped to release albums first with Alternative Tentacles and later Sub Pop.

The band dissolved sometime around 2003
