LBM Offline: Spring ROMP (DDC 04.02.2017)

\"springrompD3f

This spring, Live Beijing Music makes its seasonal trek to DDC to cook up a live music extravaganza – a red hot, fresh off the market lineup that’ll spring you into the Qingming holiday weekend – LBM presents SPRING ROMP on Sunday, April 2nd at DDC. We’ve been scouring the landscape for some Beijing’s best-kept secrets, as well as a new breed of scoundrels, punks, and bands that have sprung up in Beijing’s various neighboring cities, including Xinxiang, Baoding, and Tianjin. One of the most vivacious and respected punk bands in China, Pumpkins, out of Xinxiang, south of Beijing in Henan province, return and they’re out for blood. The band was lucky enough to record at the legendary Hansa Tonstudio in Berlin and since then they’ve been only going stronger – ‘loud, dirty, fast, and ready to soundtrack a sweaty good time’. Just southwest of Beijing lies Baoding, where indie rock kids Briefs Dryer are quite literally holding the torch for underground rock and roll in China’s most polluted city – no small feat! Their brand of angst-driven melodic indie rock never plays it easy so expect to be delighted and surprised. In our port city neighbor to the northeast, Tianjin, we stumble upon post punk ruffians Division Control – the band has been increasingly finding their way into our city and for good reason – their take no prisoners style of riotous post punk is just the thing this city needs. The last year saw a host of inspiring bands emerging onto the scene – including Qianchuan Drugstore, formed by students of the Central Academy of Fine Arts. Nominated for Freshmen Band of the year by School Bar the band’s genre-bending, poetic-bent alternative rock has been receiving good word of mouth. And finally, one of 2016’s breakout success, post punk renegades Lonely Leary, give their final performance before the band heads to the studio with renowned producer and musician Yang Haisong to record their debut release, which’ll be released on Maybe Mars late this year. Five bands from Beijing and beyond – each looking to kick start your spring and keep the good times rolling. What more could you ask for?

BAND INFO

Pumpkins小南瓜 (Xinxiang/punk)

\"P1\"

Xinxiang is a long way away from punk’s origins in NYC and London, but Pumpkins are proof that the instinctual appeal of raw power and unfiltered independence doesn’t stop at national borders. The band cranks out old-school punk straight from ‘77: loud, dirty, fast, and ready to soundtrack a sweaty good time.Pumpkins first met as high school classmates before forming in 2009, and their close friendship is readily apparent in their casual, confident stage presence. They’re a regular sight at Xinxiang venue SUBARK, a central hub for the growing local rock scene where their performances bring out young punks from all over the city. When asked to describe their shows, the band puts it simply:  “Chaos in the basement.”

Pumpkins(小南瓜)乐队成立于2009年夏,河南新乡。在ARK livehouse长大成人。乐队沉迷于一些“ 老东西 ”无法自拔,受Johnny Thunders、The stooges、Buzzcocks、Sexpistols等老家伙们的感召,并十分愿意称自己是Old school PUNK。四个人在清醒的时候都是梦想家,但在不那么清醒的时候,所到之处便都成了他们七十年代的伦敦和曼彻斯特。

Lonely Leary (Beijing/post punk)

\"LL1\"

Lonely Leary is a dynamic rock trio from Beijing.We incorporate fast drums, muddy baselines and rough guitar noise in a pursuit to create a relatively violent sound.

是一支活在北京的三人乐队习惯演奏快速的鼓、粗劣的线浑浊的噪音吉他,追求比暴戾的音乐风格。

Qianchuan Drugstore (Beijing/alt rock)

\"QD1\"

2016 saw a host of inspiring bands emerging onto the scene – including Qianchuan Drugstore, formed by students of the Central Academy of Fine Arts. Nominated for Freshmen Band of the Year by School Bar, the band’s genre-bending, poetic-bent alternative rock has been receiving good word of mouth.

浅川药店

主唱/吉他:董海洋

吉他:孙旭瞳

贝斯:田晏冰

鼓:顾力玮
:陈景元

浅川药店是一支成立于中央美术学院的新晋乐队,乐队成员横跨多所高校,风格受到包括且不仅限于硬摇滚、民谣、后摇滚、另类摇滚、后朋克、实验噪音等流派的影响,作品富有隐喻的诗意而又不乏冲击力。

Briefs Dryer烘干机 (Baoding/indie rock)

\"BD1\"

Just southwest of Beijing lies Baoding, where indie rock kids Briefs Dryer are quite literally holding the torch for underground rock and roll in China’s most polluted city – no small feat! Their brand of angst-driven melodic indie rock never plays it easy so expect to be delighted and surprised.

布理菲斯是一支2015年组建于河北保定的偶像组合,脱胎自本埠数支无疾而终的校园乐队,得名裤衩烘干机。

由于大家有着冲出本埠、飞向世界的共同野心,更兼拼饭省钱的深层目的,最终走在了一起。

组合成员醉心于跟中国摇滚没啥关系的地下音乐场景,及世界范围内的新音乐革命,又不慎卷入了后朋克复兴大潮,成为了当代年轻人思维善变作风散漫的最新实例。

对于他们来说倒是无所谓,反而都觉得自己是诗人、是工匠、是普度众生的小仙女、是催人泪下的艺术家。可以洞见的是,他们在一定意义上解锁了小城青年的第二人生,这一点应该得到广大人民群众的认可和支持。

Division Control (Tainjin/post punk)

\"DC4\"

Founded in 2014, in the style for post punk, Divisoion Control has been active in the music scenes of Tianjin, Beijing and beyond with performances at Mao Livehouse, School Bar, and more and have opened for heavyweights like Streets Kill Strange Animals. The band is preparing their debut release at the moment.
