Ydestroyde formed in 2000 as a trio of classmates Synzo (vox & synth), Mikito Tsurugi (bass) and Ippei Higashida (drums). Daioh (Oodaiko) and Shingo Taketsu (guitar) later joined and Atsushi Hirohata replaced Ippei Higashida on drums. As a quintet they performed with Half Japanese, Afrirampo (who performed at SXSW in 2006), Oshiripenpenz, UltraFuckers and Kyojin Yueni Dekai among others. In 2004 the band recorded their first album 'Ydestroyde,' but disbanded the following year. Ydestroyde later reformed as Synzo's solo project and released new single 'Hissatsu' in October 2010. Ydestroyde is in the process of finishing a new album 'Synzosizer,' which will be available on CD and for digital download in March 2011.

Live Reviews:
(Namba Bears 6-16-2002) Soon the electro dies down and a drone appears – this is Ydestroyde. They come and space out, chanting like Buddhist monks, the dreadlocked-bearded lead singer/keyboardist comes out into the audience to groove, then the rest of the band explodes into noise. More drone, then the band explodes again, and a long jam starts. They work the bass, pound the drums, ring in digital beats, groove out with funky beats and yells, spacey effects, it was a mess. A drummer, a percussionist, drum, bass, keyboards, three of them doing vocals at various times, yeesh. They went on for over 50 minutes, which is pretty rare at Bears. A wild, fun, exciting band, that seems to incorporate moments from the entire Boredoms career, particularly Super Roots 5 and Vision Creation New Sun. Hey, if you can’t see the Boredoms play anymore, this and the Surfers of Romantica must be the next best thing. A surprise for most people in the audience too, who had never heard of them. - Peter Hoflich
