This song is even older than some of the people who are watching the show,” the bassist Ou says in the show. “Witne
上海419论坛ssing the evolution of Chinese rock music is a fascinating experience. We are proud 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-songwrite
r Cui Jian on May 9, 1986, during a concert at Beijing Workers‘ Stadium. At the上海419论坛
packed venue, the then 25-year-old Cui performed his most well-known song, Nothing to My N
ame, which opened a chapter in China’s rock music story at a time when few Chinese knew what rock ‘n’ roll was.
In 1994 Ou, then 23, performed as a bassist at the Chinese Rock Power concert at the Hong Kong Arena. Bringing tog上海419论坛
ether 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 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 musi上海419论坛上海品茶
c styles. They come together and contribute to 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 distribu上海419论坛上海品茶
te both his own and his friends’ music, more and more indie bands emerged in the country while developing their own unique styles. The pu
nk-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.
The song also marked the start of a journey that would later make Cui China’s godfather of rock ‘n’ roll. It also usher上海419论坛上海品茶
ed in a golden 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.
“Material possessions like big houses and fast cars were the last things on our mind,” Ou says. “Inste
ad, we were hungry for rock music and found any possible way to get the latest music from We
stern bands. Compared with young bands today, we had few opportunities to perform onstage because the audiences were
smaller and there were few live house venues. But we were very happy because we truly loved the music.”

上海419论坛However, with summer in full swing, indie bands are set to prove that the spirit of rock ‘n’ roll lives on, and some of the than

For this feature story China Daily talked with a handful of Chinese bands and people who have experienced上海419论坛
the golden days of Chinese rock music and who have helped indie music and bands find their own voices. They are the established Beiji
ng-based rock band The Face, two Chinese rock bands that combine their local dialects with rock beats: Black Head from Xi’an, Shaanxi province, and Jiu
lian Zhenren from Lianping county in Guangdong province and the indie music promoter Liu Fei.
For an older generation of Chinese rock music fans, when the veteran rock band The Face appeared in the reality show they were awash in ’90s nostalgia.
The Face, founded in 1989 and comprising lead vocalist Chen Hui, the guitarists Liu Jingwei and Wu Jindi, the bassist Ou Ya
ng and the drummer Liu Zhong, performed a song titled Dream in the first episode of the reality show. The song
was released in 1994, during a period often regarded as a golden era for the Chinese rock scene.
