This song is even older than some of the people who are watching the show,” the bassist Ou says in the sho
ldsports官方客服419论坛w. “Witnessing the evolution of Chinese rock music is a fascinating experience. We are pr
oud that we are part of it as The Face.” Western rock music first gained popularity in China in the 1980s with a performance given by the rock singer-songwriter Cui Jian on May 9, 1986, during a concert at Beijing Workers’ Stadium.
At the packed venue, the then 25-yearldsports官方客服419论坛 -old Cui performed his most well-known song, Nothing to My Name, which opened a chapter in China’s rock music story at a time when few Chinese knew what rock ‘n’ roll was.
ldsports官方客服419论坛品茶微信The song also marked the start of a journey that would later make Cui China’s
godfather of rock ‘n’ roll. It also ushered in a go lden era of original Chinese rock bands influenced by the Western music genre and expressing themselves in their mother tongue. The first
rock bands included the heavy metal band Tang Dynasty, founded in 1988, the pop-rock band Black Panther, formed in 1987, and The Face.ldsports官方客服419论坛
l possessions like big houses and fast cars were the last things on our mind,” Ou says. “Instead, we were hungry for roc k music and found any possible way to get the latest music from Western bands. Compared with young bands today, we had few opportunities to perfo
rm onstage because the audiences were smaller and there were few live house venues. But we were very happy because we truly loved the music.”ldsports官方客服419论坛品茶微信
In 1994 Ou, then 23, performed as a bassist at the Chinese Rock Power concert at the Hong Kong Arena. Bringing toget
her He Yong, Dou Wei, the former lead vocalist of Black Panther, Zhang Chu and Tang Dynasty, the concert was the first showcase for musicians from
the mainland to perform in Hong Kong. It stunned Hong ldsports官方客服419论坛Kong audiences and created the momentum for a wave of rock music to wash across the country.
“Looking back, those legendary musicians and their works are still inspiring for the young
bands,” Ou says. “They shaped the golden era of China’s rock music. The band members are different people and enjoy different m
usic styles. They come together and contribute tldsports官方客服419论坛品茶微信o the band as one person. That’s the most interesting part of being in a band.”
Then with the birth of Modern Sky, one of the country’s biggest indie labels, which former rock singer-songwriter Shen Lihui
founded in 1997 in Beijing as a way to distribute both his own and his friends’ music, more and more indie band
s emerged in the country while developing theldsports官方客服419论坛品茶微信ir own unique styles. The punk-rock band New Pants, the pop-rock band
Queen Sea Big Shark and the heavy rock band Miserable Faith were among the most-watched bands then.
