¡Tchkung! was a band from Seattle, Washington who blended guerrilla theater, "tribal" drumming, and punk ethics. Their live performances included multiple drummers, violin, didgeridoo, and electric bass, all played to fire breathers and fire eaters, body piercing, and other theatrical scenes. Often compared to Crash Worship, or Crass, the band has been described as "industrial"[citation needed], though "post-industrial" might be more accurate. The band became well known for the conclusions of their shows, which occasionally ended in police raids (such as in Eugene), riots (particularly Seattle's Bumbershoot Festival in 1994,[1]) and street parades in which audience members were encouraged to participate. After the break-up of the band, members (including Wilson and Filastine) went on to form the political marching band Infernal Noise Brigade. (managed by : David Meinert)
