David Hammer is the musical genious we all know as the Shizuo.
Working with bands such as Atari Teenage Riot, he is definately a force
to be dealt with. On his release labeled "Shizuo vs. Shizor", it
is written (and I quote this from the back of the CD case),
"'Have you ever been kissed by a girl like
this?...' That's more than just one of the lines from the SHIZUO's
hit single recording of "SWEAT"
(that took off like a bird across the nation)...it's a slogan that's blossomed
everywhere - on school bulletin boards, as a chant at dances, as a teen
greeting - in the SHIZUO's
home territory, the twin cities of Berlin. One of the most exciting
new artists to hit the modern-music recording scene, the SHIZUO
comes on like a combination of Gangbusters,
a guided missile and a runaway train... and the young dancing set digs
his sound the most.
Esplore his grooves and you'll find the reason
for his success, best branded "instant popularity". Not only does
the SHIZUO know
what the dancing set wants, but he gives it to them with just the right
amount of sound excitement. "ANARCHY"
was born at one of the few of teen dances he has performed: the
SHIZUO was playing
at a crammed, jammed squad in London, when he decided to try something
new, his own concept of the teenage dance craze! The crowd listened,
but only for a moment. Then they were dancing and raving as never
before - Everything has flown high since. Now, meet this talented
and dynamic new man! Put the tone arm down... and the volume up!
Ladies and gentlemen, the SHIZUO!!!!!!!!".
I'm just another fan of Shizuo, no official guy here...
just a healthy love for good music. I've seen Atari Teenage Riot live twice,
once with Rage Against the Machine and the Foo Fighters, and once with
EC8OR and SHIZUO. Not only was ATR all that you could wish and more,
but Shizuo stood out too... for reasons obvious to most SHIZUO concert-goers...
I bought the CD and appreciated it greatly, so I made this page, in homage
to the great SHIZUO!
