“Because of music, I haven’t become a terrorist.” – Makoto Kawabata
Kawabata and DJ Urine contact Pangbianr via friend in Hong Kong. They plan to start this crazy new project with an Asia tour.
Meanwhile, Sub Jam is curating January’s Miji Concert. It’s a year after the debut of The Tea Rockers. They would like to meet again on the birthday of one member. Drink some tea. And play,
5 years ago Kawabata visited Beijing for the first time. He came with the “Japanese New Music Festival”. 3 of them played 7 different projects including Acid Mothers Temple. One concert was at Waterland Kwanyin no. 42 (2Kolegas Bar) with Beijing group Mafeisan.
2Kolegas Bar is the place where classical guqin player Wu Na was first touched by the underground music scene. It’s Xiao He’s noise laboratory. Once Yan Jun joined Li Daiguo’s stage when he was drunk… a site where Beijing experimental music meets the world. Waterland Kwanyin has retired. Now Miji Concerts are calling for all terrorists of mind and sound: unite!
