Hedgehog and Re-TROS are
coming to rock Hong Kong again at Grappa’s Celler (Jardine House Basement,
Central) on 25 Oct 2008.
It’s time for the Beijing rockers to
seize back the stages after the closing of Beijing Olympics and Paralympic
Games. The live houses and festivals in Beijing are now bustling with
noise and excitement. How about Hong Kong? Two of most popular bands
from Beijing – the lovely
and the mysterious
to play one fanatical gig for Hong Kong fans, as Hedgehog’s vocal
Zo said, ‘We won’t stop until you guys all wet!’.
With a twelve-year-old
alike little girl hitting the drums with explosive power, this young
Hedgehog has drawn all the media attention when their album was
out last year! They were invited to perform in different music festival
as well as being featured in various fashion brands. They soon
hit the spot and became one of the most acclaimed indie-pop bands in
The pioneering Beijing-based post-punks
Re-TROSdelivers explosive, danceable, unsettling energy that leaves
you unsure whether you want to take your clothes off and shake the spiders
out. Last year, they played more than 20 gigs in their first US tour
and have earned widespread acclaim from the international media.
In Beijing, Rock &
Roll is becoming the new youth icon of chic and hipe. If you walk
along the famous hu tong street – Nan Luo Gu Xiang, you will always
find the hippest artists and musicians hanging out there. If you
pop into any live house in weekends, you will always find people are
pogo’ing with all wet clothes. It’s time for Hong Kong to
catch up with the capital rock scene,
are right here to rock you out of the blue!

one2free presents Hedgehog
+ Re-TROS Live in Hong Kong
The audiences were totally blown out
when they saw the twelve-year-old alike little girl hitting the drums
with power just like a big man!
That is the
Atom first met each other in 2005, they
decided to make some noise & pop music! They called themselves
Hedgehog, as it is a lovely animal and with cool personality that
matches their music –being so happy when they meet someone they like;
become a ball with spiny hairs and turn their back to someone they don’t
like. Just so straight forward!
These Beijing boys & girl who create
simple, hooky songs soon become the sexiest point in the capital city.
They said, “Our youth is so perfect, we don’t have time to waste!
Let’s rock fucking crazy on stage and make noise to hit the world!
Come on NoisePoP! Come on Boys & Girls!"
Right after their debut
album release in 2007, they showed off their
and stunned the thousands of audience crowd at different music festivals
and live houses.This young
has drawn all the media attention as well as being featured in fashion
brands. They soon hit the spot and became one of the most acclaimed
indie-pop rock bands in Beijing.
Born in the shadow of post-Tiananmen
nihilism, the collapse of state run industry and a desert that will
someday swallow their city whole, this pioneering Beijing-based post-punks
Rebuilding the Rights of Statues (Re-TROS)
delivers explosive, danceable, unsettling energy that leaves you unsure
whether you want to take your clothes off and shake the spiders out.
Once you take the first sip of
music, you will find this is visceral music built from the bones up,
think ubermench rather than Frankenstein's monster: beautiful, brilliant
Drummer Ma Hui's rhythms still hold
the echo of the earthquake that wiped his birth city off the map in
1976, while Liu Min's irresistible bass lines and staccato, strangely
sensual yelps make you remember why you first fell in love with Blonde
Redhead. Standing over it all, Hua Dong's shattering vocals and addictive
open-fisted guitar stitch the flesh to the muscle like some demented
monkey king. Even legendary composer/producer Brian Eno was so blown
away he stood in on guest keyboards (we couldnt even make this stuff
was released in 2006 by Modern Sky Records.
They played frequently throughout the country and gained a great appreciation
from audience. Last year they had their first US tour, traveled
21 states in 20 days included New York, Chicago, Texas etc. They have
just finished the recording of their new full-length album, and it will
be the most anticipated album of the year.
