Bio / info
Ruins is a Japanese experimental rock duo of drum set and electric bass guitar. The group, formed in 1985, was supposedly intended to be a power trio; the guitarist, however, never showed up to the band's first rehearsal, so the group has primarily remained a duo, though a configuration called Ruinzhatova (Ruins-Hatoba) features guitarist Seiichi Yamamoto. The drummer is Tatsuya Yoshida and the group has featured four different bass players over its history. Yoshida also uses the Ruins name on other duo collaborations, notably Sax Ruins (with saxophonist Ryoko Ono and RonRuins with Ron Anderson.
