Fishmans to play in Seoul

Japanese band Fishmans is making a rare appearance today at Kuchu Camp - a cafe named after Fishmans’ fan club - in northwestern Seoul, the band’s first visit to Korea.

The band hasn’t released a regular album since 1999, following the death of Sato Sinji, the band’s lead vocalist and guitarist.

“Fishmans, known as the ‘artists of artists,’ has its own unique sound, which cannot be defined by a single genre, and they’ve inspired many underground music artists in Korea,” said Go Young-beom, a Kuchu Camp member.

Kuchu Camp began as Fishmans’ Korean fan club in 2000. Three years later, its members opened a small venue (of the same name) between Hongik University and Sinchon as a tribute to the band.

The concert is part of a two-day festival that features DJ Dguru from Korea, Otouta from Japan and others. The doors open today at 6 p.m. Admission is 70,000 won and a one-day pass is 40,000 won. For details, visit www.kuchu-camp.net.
