more and more, hope this post doesn't get vaporized
I don't like brainfailure, sounds like chumbawamba commercial bullshit at least their recent stuff. They are just famous coz they toured around in the US (one of the few, maybe 3, Chinese Punk bands). That's it, from what I've heard they were different years ago, now they could play bad folk style cover versions of the Ramones in Irish pubs. Definetely better are: THE BELIEVERS, for me the best Chinese Punk band.|
OK bands are G.O.I. (Greatest of Ice-Cream) and tookoo (all from Beijing)
Another one is Swamp from Guangzhou, they experiment a lot with electronic sounds, wouldn't suprise me if they mark the beginning of Chinese trip hop. I lost their URL, gonna post it later.
For Chengdu, uh, there're tonz of bands, there are Proximity butterfly (2 foreigners, 2 chinese), as I would say the most intimite band, very orgiastic, they take their time to build up the songs. Ya'Could call it psychodelic rock (kind of Doors' style).
The 2 most famous Chengdu bands are Ashura and Soundtoy, but they are POP (altough they could do the POGO), so let's drop them.
There are 2 Metal bands worth mention THOR and Hanged. The first one is the general of the scene a Marilyn Manson, nice and addicted to his music, using music just as a weapon to fight XXXXXXXXX. And Hanged, also metal but no singing just pig noise (I think their idea is: well we can't speak out what we think unless we want 2 get into trouble so let's just make a pervert noise).
And than there are dozens of other bands like Idolum of Eddy (cross over), and the rest splits up any other day.
My last post (and not only my last one!!!) didn't appear, so the thread is at the buttom line, let's push it to the top again.
PEACE FROM CHENGDU
