We have been planning to write a little piece on Rock in China – we still will, when we get it together. In the meantime, Beijing Review has jumped our gun – you can read a short article HERE.
Rock in China is by far the most comprehensive English language resource on Chinese contemporary music. It is run by Yu Yang and the guys behind Painkiller Magazine, China’s leading heavy metal publication, which has a distribution of around 40,000 heads. Painkiller recently brought the German gothic symphonic metal band Lacrimosa to China for the second time – the band played the Star Live and the Luwan gymnasium to about 1,000 people each. Rock in China are looking for volunteers to help them maintain the site. If you fancy helping, get in touch with them. MLVONSCHAPER [AT] YAHOO [DOT] DE
