Zildo Ildo was a ramshackle project that eventually settled down into a core line-up of Chris Eckart, Hugo Fischer, Jesse Lewis, Chad Ingles and Mike Keire though the band also had many friends drop by to play and record. Inspired by good friendship and that unruly period between the end of highschool and the pre-planning stages of adulthood Zildo Ildo flourished briefly.
Country music, fishing, and cottage-trips were the settings for songwriting and recording. Drinking and ensuing destruction were often the background for practices. Falling asleep on church lawns at 3:00AM. Alien Attack. It was pretty carefree.
Zildo Ildo played often for a couple of years around 1999 but never officially released any albums, or even finished recording for that matter. It didn’t really matter if we ever got anything down because we were having so much fun on the way.
