TEKE::TEKE [Performance & Interview Only]

View descriptionShare

On the show this time, it’s the compelling “collage-rock” of Montreal’s TEKE::TEKE.

TEKE::TEKE is a rock band from Montreal, with the twist being that they play in the style of 1960’s and 70’s Japanese movie soundtracks. It is a big band - 7 musicians - and their diverse backgrounds help to drive their eclectic modern take on the psychedelic rock they use for inspiration. The name TEKE::TEKE refers to the classic sound of surf guitar, and originally, they formed to honor Japanese surf legend Takeshi Terauchi. Drums, bass, dueling guitars, trombone, and flute constitute an impressive sonic palette, but once you throw in traditional Japanese instruments, multilingual poetic lyrics, and a punk rock heart - you'd better hold on because it's gonna be a ride! The addition of one of the world’s most charismatic front-persons, in the form of singer and fashion icon Maya Kuroki pushes the band from brilliant to downright extraordinary. It’s loud, it's colorful and it’s super fun. Their latest is called 'Hagata' and it is available on Kill Rock Stars.

Recorded 10/20/2023.
