Since 2005 Darin Gray (bass) and Chris Corsano (drums) have performed side by side as Chikamorachi. They are found most often together with the incendiary saxophonist Akira Sakata, either as a trio or in expanded line-ups with the likes of Jim O'Rourke, Min Tanaka, Masami Akita (aka Merzbow), Keiji Haino, Michiyo Yagi, and Yosuke Yamashita. The high-speed empathy that Gray and Corsano have as a rhythm section is at the fore of their many records together, the latest of which, Proton Pump with Akira Sakata and Masahiko Satoh. They also began a new project with Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy, performing at the Big Ears and Solid Sound Festivals.

There are no upcoming tour-dates for Chikamorachi.

Check back soon for updates.
