Electric Eel Shock
Japanese Rock N Roll legends Electric Eel Shock are back over to ROCK the UK! come and witness their 30th anniversary tour...it's always one hell of a party
Electric Eel Shock is a Japanese rock trio that powerfully combines classic rock, metal, and punk influences with a gritty garage rock delivery. Aki Morimoto (vocals/guitar) and Kazuto Maekawa (bass) were first brought together over a mutual obsession with Black Sabbath while in school in Osaka. They played together in a pop/rock band in Tokyo, but after the band broke up, Morimoto turned to fishing while Maekawa briefly joined the popular Japanese funk band the Apollos as a session bassist. It was here that Maekawa first met drummer Tomoharu Ito -- who interestingly enough loves to play naked -- and upon hooking back up with Morimoto, Electric Eel Shock was born, initially as an 11-piece band. Scheduling practices quickly became too hard, thus causing EES to strip down to their present threesome.
