97-SHIKI are four people who make music, with histories in underground, punk, hardcore, rock, experimental music in Chicago and all over the place.
The music is the construct of the four individuals who create its rhythmic, discordant, yet melodic layers. This record is where it all begins. Sounding like a mashup of many of their previous bands, FOURTH ROTOR (Kammy Lee & Douglas Ward), V.REVERSE (Patrick Scott and Douglas), LOCKS, WEATHER, KILL SADIE, MY LAI (Patrick), HEWHOCORRUPTS , KUNG FU RICK (Ryan Durkin) to name a few. It's a band with four strong personalities that all get their ideas out in their driving, pulsing, cutting tunes.
