Oromocto Diamond was in Japan a year ago. Invited to open for the legendary Zoobombs, during what could have been their final concerts on September 21st, 2013, the whole night was very, very strange and emotional for everyone involved. After 22 hours of travelling, Oromocto Diamond played a fast 22 minute set, just before the Zoobombs’ almost three hour career defining concert. Without anyone knowing, the music was all recorded as a bootleg by a fan directly from the soundboard. To commemorate and forget half a year of a broken band, here comes OROMO KUMAKUS, the live souvenir of that one night in Tokyo; named in honour of the bear like character, president of the Zoobombs-company which launched in 1993, created by Matta Matsuo. It’s one deluxe P572 package consisting of a CD along with a photo and art book.

Oromocto Diamond était au Japon il y a un an. Invité en première partie du 1500e concert des légendaires Zoobombs, le 21 septembre 2013. Une soirée très très bizarre et émotive pour tout le monde au Basement Bar 東京都世田谷区 . Après 22 heures de voyage, Oromocto Diamond jouait un set rapide de 22 minutes, juste avant une prestation anthologique de trois heures des Zoobombs. Sans que personne ne s’en doute, toute la musique de la soirée fut enregistrée bootleg directement de la console par un fan. Pour commémorer et oublier une année de fractures, sort OROMO KUMAKUS, le souvenir live d’une nuit à Tokyo. Nommé en l’honneur du petit ours président des Zoobombs, créé par Matta Matsuo en 1993. Le tout sort en CD deluxe avec un livre de photos et de dessins.

''The brute energy of Oromo Kumakus gushes from everywhere and intrudes on your favourite paradoxes: time and space. Zenon is shooting herself in the foot while Oromocto Diamonds fly to Tokyo for a one-night collaboration – a 22 hour flight for 22 minutes of music – with the brute but docile force of Zoobombs.'' Weird Canada - weirdcanada.com/2015/07/new-canadiana-oromocto-diamond-zoobombs-oromo-kumakus/

''Tout de suite, on est frappé par l’énergie qui se dégage des deux groupes. Pour Oromocto Diamond, si leurs albums font habituellement dans la musique synthétique, en live, le groupe en est à sa forme la plus pure, soit Jean-Sébastien à la batterie et Sam Murdock à la basse. De ce fait, on se retrouve avec une musique qui rentre à fond. Aussi, la basse de Murdock, loin d’être reléguée à un simple instrument secondaire, fait jaillir des sons qu’aucun autre groupe ne produit.'' -Impact Campus impactcampus.ca/arts-et-culture/critique-musicale-oromo-kumakus/

''As a live Zoobombs record, Oromo Kumakus did an amazing job of making me feel like I was back at the Zoo in Brisbane in ‘99ish, or whenever it was, covered in sweat and spilled beer, loving every second of it. As a Oromocto Diamond record, it made me feel like I need to know more about Oromocto Diamond.''
