Zakkum was originally formed in 1999(Ankara,Turkey) under the name “Raindog” based on a Tom Waits song, “Rain Dogs”. The band became well known in a short time by performing an amazing stage show and successful cover versions of modern rock bands (Placebo, Suede, The Smiths, Depeche Mode etc.) Vocalist Yusuf Demirkol and drummer Cem Senyücel formed the main staff while the other group members changed frequently through years. In 2006, last line-up arose with the joining of Emre Yılmaztürk(?2004,bassist) and Eren Parlakgümüs (2006,lead guitarist) to the main staff. Read more about Zakkum on Last.fm.
