Korean Jeans

Upcoming Shows

Past Shows


Korean Jeans originated in Boston in 2012, emerging from a mildewy basement room with a long history of noisy happenings. Korean Jeans is half Neal Markowski (drums, guitar, composition) and half Beth McDonald (tuba, electronics). The duo sits uncomfortably between a rock band and an avant garde ensemble -- too obnoxious for galleries and too weird for rock clubs... We play compositions by Neal ("math rock"), improvisation, noise, and a variety of cover songs -- Big Black, MX-80 Sound, the B-52s, etc.

And yes, in case you were wondering: tuba sounds great through fuzz pedals. The more the merrier.

Korean Jeans currently releases albums through Single Action Rider (Chicago), and all albums are available on Bandcamp.
