Bohemian Grove is celebrating its 10th birthday this August and we're celebrating with one of our favourite bands - Showa44!

Carl Dewhurst - guitars
Simon Barker - drums

Since forming in 2001, Showa 44 have released four CDs of improvised duets through Kimnara records (Showa 44, Ormus, Orneon and Kaihogyo) and have performed at major festivals in Australia and abroad.

Featuring Carl Dewhurst and Simon Barker, Showa 44 utilise tuned metallic resonances, rhythmic densities and spontaneous invention via electric guitar and percussion to manifest compelling and evocative soundscapes. Showa 44 are increasingly becoming recognized as one of Australia’s foremost creative ensembles.
