THE BOXER REBELLION formed in 2001, through a chance meeting at London's 12 Bar Club. Despite an illness flooring one of their members and forcing them to cancel tours with Razorlight and The Killers, the band pushed forward to release their debut album 'Exits' in 2005 with significant press acclaim. Further interest from abroad saw the band playing shows in the latter half of 2005 in France, Italy and Japan with the likes of The Walkmen, before heading back to the UK to consolidate ideas for a second full-length release. The Boxer Rebellion stand for longevity and substance, and they have both of these qualities in droves. Where other bands would have crumbled following the woes that have befallen this London four-piece, The Boxer Rebellion have re-grouped and re-discovered what makes them tick. Recent, packed live performances in London show that TBR have amassed a solid fanbase, and with superb new songs, the world is again their oyster.
London-based British band comprising Nathan Nicholson, Todd Howe, Adam Harrison and Piers Hewitt, delivering a mixture of rawkus bass-heavy grooves, alternately fragile and explosive vocals, and melodic indie/alternative sounds. So far the band have released “The Boxer Rebellion” EP (in 2003) and the “Exits” LP (in 2005). A limited edition single “Evacuate/Code Red” was released in 2008. Their new and second album “Union” will be released worldwide on January 11th, 2009, initially exclusively through iTunes, along with a worldwide re-release of “Exits”.
与The Amber Light不同,The Boxer Rebellion在o5年的Exits中表现得更为猛烈,情绪也好,表现方式也好...颇有几分在战场上幸存之余呐喊的味道...粗糙的质感,喷涌而出直至爆裂的轰鸣,到World Without End的恍若围城...真让人欲罢不能
TBR的风格还是比较难界定,至少我是分不清楚...Psychedelic? Indie? Alternative? Brit-pop? 谁指点一下...
再回过头看看o8年的Brit-pop...Keane,Travis, Coldplay...呃,你还记得他们的debut长啥样麽?好吧,他们都说自己在改变,在尝试新的风格,至少我是不知道这改变的初衷在哪里,大概是更迎合听众,更面向市场吧...瞧人家Antony and the Johnsons到现在还这副阴阳怪气的唱腔,新砖The Crying Light不也蛮嗲嘛= =...

Zalem is formed in 2004. The band was directed towards at the same time ambient , rock music, combining various influences of each musician. The band hopes to share its music with many people. Zalem plays the music that leaves much place of imagination and feelings (we hope!!) In near future, Zalem will add some new musicians in his band to enlarge his sound.

ihopeyousuffer: "...At last these people grew weary of their senseless labours and suffering appeared on their faces, and these people proclaimed that suffering was beauty, for in suffering alone was there thought. They glorified suffering in their songs. I walked among them, wringing my hands and weaping over them, but I loved them perhaps more than before when there was no sign of suffering in their faces and when they were innocent and -- oh, so beautiful! I loved the earth they had polluted even more than when it had been a paradise, and only because sorrow had made its appearance on it..."
ihopeyousuffer不出意外的增加了曲目的长度,相比This Is A Collection Of People to Ruin的琐碎,Gold, Oil And Drugs也并没有完全向完整的体系化发展,而仍旧采用片段式的曲目安排...冰冷,很冰冷...

About Nic Bommarito:
Nic Bommarito comes off like the all-American college boy. He's from a small city in the near distance to Detroit, Michigan. He studied philosophy in Ann Harbor and changed to Albuquerque, New Mexico to expand his Sanskrit-studies. This trip took him across 2/3 of the US, but the next relocation was even more thoroughgoing . In 2006, Nic moved to Lhasa in Tibet, roof of the world.
Nic is the unresting type. Due to his studies, he runs several websites, draws small comic strips, releases philosophical prose and documents his travels via a nice photo-blog. What's interesting for you: Nic Bommarito is a talented musician, too. He got in contact with us in late 2006, and we spontaneously decided to release his Taciturn LP at 12rec. (By 12rec. Records)
About the album:
Recorded in the summer of 2005 in the former home of my late grandparents. No samples or keyboards were used in the recording. 'Yksikseskös Yskiskelet?' is the confusion of solitude and loneliness. 'Enenenen, en Enenene.' is excitement dissolving into anxiety. 'Riba Ribi Grize Rep.' is intentionally hurting another. 'Summergimurne?' is the sound of a voice you always want to hear. You can see the tracklist art and liner notes. (By Nic Bommarito Himself)
还是偏爱比较厚一点的东西,象The Seven Mile Journey这样螺旋上升的就很好...毕竟很不喜欢做升降机的感觉= =...
现在懒了,3,4首的EP比较适合我= =...Nice Artist, Nice Album...
