Zen Guerrilla formed in Newark, Delaware in the late 1980s. Band members Andy Duvall (drums), Marcus Durant (vocals/harmonica), Carl Horne (bass), and Rich Millman (guitar) came together from local bands Marcus Hook, The Gollywogs, Stone Groove and No Comment.
The band released their self-titled CD on Philadelphia-based Compulsiv Records in 1992. Soon after, Zen Guerrilla moved to Philadelphia and were regular performers around the city at clubs such as the Kyber Pass Pub. Around this time the band began a heavy touring schedule, which would have them cross the country multiple times through the end of the decade.
Zen Guerrilla relocated to San Francisco in 1994. Their constant touring increased their exposure, and, combined with their explosive live show, helped to release albums first with Alternative Tentacles and later Sub Pop, which is known for being the original record company of Nirvana.
The band’s version of the song “Empty Heart” was featured in the 2000 PlayStation game Grind Session.
The band dissolved sometime around 2003. Read more on Wikipedia
