Ground Zero biography Founded in Tokyo, Japan in 1990 - Disbanded in 1998. With the dawn of 1997 came 'Plays Standards'. We find Otomo interpreting in a more personalised fashion, formulating a more song-orientated album, while still lending a health does of noise doused insanity. Also released in the same year, was 'Consume Red'. Sited as the bands greatest moment, it was to be one of the last full releases before the band broke up.
