Journalist Bill Milkowski called Gongzilla "simply mind-boggling." GZ first released a series of mostly instrumental jazz/rock albums featuring second guitarists on each one, including jazz fusion legends Allan Holdsworth, David Torn, and David Fiuczynski. More recently, GZ has included some U.S. jamband heroes in its live performances, like guitarist Chuck Garvey and percussionist Jim Loughlin of moe., and has emphasized vocals, crafting songs which fuse with improvisational rock. The new studio record includes the aforementioned Garvey as well as Jake Cinninger of Umphrey's McGee plus guitarist David "Fuze" Fiuczynski (Screaming Headless Torsos) and bassist Kai Eckhardt of Garaj Mahal! Contradictions and balance; GZ’s Rowe and Lozaga sing cool songs that will singe your soul while balancing both the hyper precision and the rockin' mayhem this band is capable of live.  


The best eclectic music on the Web,8-11pm BST/GMT THURS.
Host by PA's Dick Heath.
