One of the most innovative drummer/composer/improviser in japanese avant-garde music scene.
Born in 1961. Began playing proffesionally in early '80s. Made his own group "Ruins" in 1985, which is only Drums and Bass unit.
"Ruins" plays very uinque high energy music that is mixture of comtenporary music, hard core and progressive rock.
"Ruins" has got a lot of great reviews in and out of Japan, and have a lot of tours very often.
Yoshida also has many other groups as a leader, "Koenjihyakkei" "ZUBIZUVA" "AKATEN" "KOREKYOJIN". He has been collaborate with JOHN ZORN, FRED FRITH, DEREK BAILEY, KEIJI HAINO, YOSHIHIDE OTOMO, etc...
Formed in 1985, RUINS has still been continuing to develop and deepen
their world for over 18 years, reigning as the pioneer of Drum & Bass
duo. Tunes are complicated and mysterious, and songs are sung in the
language of their own invention. It's high-tension, wild, heavy, speedy,
acute, and powerful tremendous ensemble never sounds like they are only
two players. RUINS started with the noisy hardcore sound, then moved
into very technical, complicated sound, and now it shows high-quality
performances with both characteristics. True hardcore progressive sound.
Formed by TSUYAMA Atsushi and YOSHIDA Tatsuya in 1995 with the motto of "irresponsibleness" and "perfunctoriness." They easily free themselves from the spell of the traditional seriousness of the art. Using daily commodities like scissors, toothbrush, zipper, camera, and plastic bottle as percussions, and shouting their brand names over and over as the "songs," the show is performed under the concept of low cost and maximum sound effect. They simulate the wild bird songs and sumo live broadcasting; manpowered sampling, so to speak. AKATEN is the experimental convenience store punk band that provides the sound images of cheap and simple daily lives.
ZUBI ZUVA / ZUBI ZUVA X
To quest for the vector of "voice," YOSHIDA formed this a cappella trio in 1995. It covers from Gregorian chant to ethnic music, to do-wop to hardcore screaming, heavily using irregular rhythms and polyrhythm. All sorts of ideas and aberrant musicality overturn the image of a cappella. Pushing the verge of possibility of the human voice, their totally meaningless lyrics and desperate performances throw the audiences into the abyss of the laughter and admiration. It makes the concept of "singing ability" nonsense. "X" is the limited special unit of ZUBI ZUVA for the tour.
