Get out your ZhongNanHais and pour out all that Invisible Love. Carsick Cars are back at the ‘Grass for a special, one-time-only set: playing their iconic, self-titled debut in full. With the original lineup: Shouwang, Li Qing and Li Weisi!
It’s a rare double whammy – era-defining band playing an era-defining album. Carsick Cars’ raucous noise-rock debut birthed a movement in the grimy depths of late 2000s Beijing, and songwriter Zhang Shouwang and co. remain the archetype for Chinese alternative music to this day.
‘Rock’n’Roll Hero’, ‘Zhi Yuan de Ren’, ‘Guang Chang’, ‘Xiong Mao’. Every track here is an instant classic; and that’s before we even get to Zhong Nan Hai – a true, iconoclastic anthem for doomed youth if there ever was one. Ask any young band in China today – they probably owe Carsick Cars one, for a vision of their possible futures.
This one’s going to get raucous.
