Zhongyu and Super Z Attack Team

These two bands are related both by the prominence of the letter Z and the compositions of Jon Davis. Zhongyu is a five-piece, primarily studio project, and Super Z Attack Team (SZAT) is a trio, a subset of the full band (along the lines of the legendary "small, highly mobile unit"). Who knows, there may be other configurations in the future...

Personnel:

  • Jon Davis — Most of the compositions, Chapman Stick, guzheng, keyboards, theremin, electronics, percussion, miscellaneous toys (Zhongyu + SZAT)
  • James DeJoie — Baritone saxophone, flute, bass clarinet, bamboo flute, percussion, voice, electronics (Zhongyu + SZAT)
  • Randy Doak — Drums, percussion (Zhongyu + SZAT)
  • Dennis Rea — Acoustic and electric guitars (Zhongyu)
  • Alicia DeJoie — Electric violin (Zhongyu)

Upcoming Live Performance! — Parliament

We're looking forward to playing on Thursday, 13 April 2017 at the Parliament Tavern in West Seattle. Opening the show will be the first ever live performance of the band Pinto Wagonfire. The Parliament is a super friendly place, and there won't be a cover charge (just a donation bucket), so you have no excuse not to come. More details can be found on Facebook.

Upcoming Live Performance! — Substation

We have a show booked — something we hope to have more of in the future. This is a good start...

Thursday March 2, 2017 at the Substation

We'll be appearing with two other bands: Decent at Best and Professor Sweater. Check out the details on the Facebook event page. The Substation is one of the best clubs in Seattle, so please come out and support creative, adventurous music. We've got new material written since the Sonarchy show, and it's really sounding good. We're looking forward to testing it out on an unsuspecting public.

Super Z / Zhongyu Sonarchy Set Available Online

I'll save you the trouble of having to search for it, since KEXP only highlights recent shows on their website. You can go to this page to find our performance recorded in the summer of 2016. While the playing isn't quite flawless, the spirit and energy were great. It was such a privilege to be able to do this.

Sonarchy "Live" Radio Broadcast Scheduled

Back in July, all of the people involved in the band gathered at Jack Straw Productions to record a live set of music. The first half consisted of Jon, Jim, and Randy doing a set of Super Z tunes, then Alicia and Dennis joined for some Zhongyu material taken from the album.

The sonic mastermind of Sonarchy, Doug Haire, has mixed and mastered the live performance (no do-overs here!) and set the air date as October 23, 2016 on KEXP FM. The show goes on at midnight Sunday night (AKA Monday morning), but will also be available as a podcast for more convenient listening

A couple of the segments are posted on our Soundcloud page already, in Jon's own mixes, not Doug's.
