Sub ject: Car sick Cars
Time: 2010-11-17 03:00
We have made an important decision: due to cre ative differences and opportunities for members' personal development, bassist Li Weisi and drummer Li Qing have chosen to leave the band; Zhang Shouwang and his new band mates will continue the work of Carsick Cars. The Novem ber 16 performance may in fact be the last time Carsick Cars perform together in their original form.
Since the first rehearsals and performances in 2005, for more than five years, we three have cre ated two studio albums, experienced more than 100 live performances, and toured the nation and over seas. These have been some of the most important experience and beautiful memories of our lives.
In the future, Li Qing and Li Weisi might make some more music with Snapline and Soviet Pop; and outside of Car sick Cars, Shouwang will also be doing more experimen tal music with White+. In addi tion, it is quite possible that we three will collaborate in a free [lib eral] music project in the future.

话题: Car sick cars
我们做出了一个重要的决定：由于音乐兴趣的差异和成员各自的发展计划，贝斯手李维思和鼓手李青选择退出乐队；张守望将和新的成员一起，继续Car sick Cars的创作。11月16日的演出也会是carsick cars原始成员的最后一次演出。
在未来，李青与李维思会将音乐重心更多的放在Snapline与Soviet Pop上；而在Carsick Cars之外，守望同时也在进行着White+等音乐实验。而在将来我们三个也很有可能再合作一个更自由的音乐项目
So, welcome to the piece where I give my take on the scene and how it has been affected by the Expo. Now, both the Expo and the scene mean different things to different people. So welcome to the defining of the terms.
The music scene can sometimes be thought of as the sum of all events related to music available in the city at any given point and can include industry built around it. Not here though. I write about the underground indie scene in Shanghai. It is characterized by a lack of functioning industry and a suspicious and authoritarian approach from government. I write about local youths who work to create their own culture outside of the mainstream using genres like punk, rock and indie music. I write about subculture. I write about identity and expression. You will find reviews of Chaos Mind playing Yuyintang. You will not find a DJ playing DKD, a promoter whose primary goal is 'a party' or a Jazz band playing a function.
