I just moved to China. Looking for some Chinese bands to listen to. I like post-rock, ambient, and mathy instrumental type stuff, but I'll listen to anything you rec if you think it's worth giving it a listen. Also, I'm near Beijing, so good places/bands to see near there would also be appreciated.
>not listening to Chinese classical
>listening to garbage westernized chinese classical instead of the good stuff
Me chinee, me work rong
In da rice fierd for Zedong
Ere singere day its da grorious rife I read
Jus so dat my chirrun can feed
Listen to this so you don't get gassed in an execution van you filthy wide eyed gweilo
Listen to this because it's good
Why would anyone in China other than expats be on 4chan?
There's nothing remotely communist about China now. It's unregulated capitalism.
Faye Wong is totally mainstream but did some surprisingly good dream pop stuff.
How open is China to foreigners living there? I figured they'd be apprehensive about letting outsiders live there, especially since they seem to not like the Chinese people freely use the Internet.
Pretty much every country has its own internet culture to some extend (even though you could arguably say that these culture are more a matter of common languages rather than country) and yet you have "foreigner" coming to english speaking websites.
Because that's where you can find the most people.
And don't say that chinesecan't into english, that is factually wrong. Considering the shittons of students they send abroad...
>go to new indian buffet
>lunch hour in the middle of the city, but I am the only customer
>waiter comes up, takes me to my table
>gives me water and says that is all they have
>they turn on some hindi music
>lots of clangs and bongs and women going Heyiayeayaaweeyeeyah
>buffet counter has three things on it - goat, some kind of white paste and kumquats
>walk back to my table in the middle of this big empty room, waiter is just staring at me from the entrance
>take a bite of the goat
>HELLFIRE AND BRIMSTONE
>guzzle some water, but curry's like greek fire and the water just makes it hotter
>meanwhile the hindi lady continues her shrill screaming
>in my desperation eat the kumquat
>barely does anything
>scoop up some white paste and stick it in my mouth, hoping it will cool it down
>nope, it's full of curry too
>out of water, but the waiter won't come and refill my glass until I beg him to come over
>drink my glass of water
>I've had enough of this, I need to get out of here
>He brings the check, total comes to $15 + a $3 refill for the tiny glass of water
>Pay him and run out and go to the nearest coke vending machine
>Shit fire for a week
That would mostly depend where you are from.
Japanese are America's obedient dog who tries to steal chinese islands.
America is capitalist pig but we also like money, so it's cool, kinda.
Russia is false communist and evil.
UK is imperialist pig but it's okay because it was a while ago.
France is good because it has Paris and brands we can counterfeit.
All former Siam and Indochina is good because Ngyen reads the red handbook
Africa is good because we build their roads and hey pay. Except when musilm because when they are they are Uighurs and Uighurs ar bad
Hong Kong is annoying
Taiwan is evil
>Taiwan is evil
Big baby china jus mad cuz we keep Taiwan free from your oppression [spoiler]and under ours[/spoiler]
all we'd have to do is put some nationalism back into the bloodstream of the Japanese and they'll drop the kawaii and return to their imperialistic ways. They managed to conquer China & Korea before, next time all of Asia & Pacific!
entry level chinese rock is 崔健 and 唐朝. 一无所有 was the anthem of tiananmen. listen to it.
there's also some guy who does a youtube series on the local bands in beijing. mostly rock/punk/metal. i'll see if i can find it
Finland is cold but is not Mongolia, Tibet or Xinjiang, we can't opress them so we don't care. Also is part of Scandinavia and is not a real country because Scandinavia isn't
Brazil is like south america that gets drugs the Triads sell so they are good because chinese Triads give money to Party executives, and evil because they give money to Macau and Hong Kong Triads.
Korea excellent country, Korea real friends, Korea real communist, Korea great place.
>next time all of Asia & Pacific!
So this is why Abe is rearming the country.
Shit's gonna be good.
they start with islands, then Manchuria, then the whole world.
Prais the Emprah-desu/
still has communist ideas in its culture of government. Its not really communist but the culture of it is still there. I once saw a rap group in china and they were so scad of there government they only raped about cookies and baked goods.
chinese women excellent workers, stay for long days at factory, then come back have kids and make food
also good to send outside for studies then come back with foreign man who become good worker too or engineer or teacher so we don't need to train our own!
Grorious empire shar returnu! of hope Chinese and Korean women stir of best comfort women~
>also good to send outside for studies then come back with foreign man
And I thought guys who married chinese women were losers already. Imagine the guy who goes back to China with her
THIS IS NOW AN AMERICAN THREAD!
Most of the international students at my uni are Japanese. They're so friggin polite & hardly ever make comments so I don't know what they think about stuff. I'm friends with a couple of them, and I ask them what they think about certain things and they give short brisk answers.
I get the feeling they're just trying to suppress the urge to declare Nippon as greatest nation ever & try to conquer things.
Li Jianhong might be up your alley, OP, if you're into noise at all.
It's mostly densely layered guitar-noise improvisations, with a dash of post-rock and ambient. Although sometimes he just ditches the guitar and goes for a pure analog-noise setup.
Well we have a larger amount of Vietnamese & Thai students, but the majority actually live here (families were put here during 'Nam). Those groups are pretty much Americanized and friendly with everyone.
I haven't met any of the Korean students, but apparently they exist. I think they're frightened by how much Nippon there are.
Japanese is the largest population. They're super friendly, but you can tell that unless you get to know them well you aren't going to get much thought out of them. I'm a culture events organizer for my campus, so I'm getting pretty close to a few of them. Hope at some point they'll let me in on what the big secret plot is.
Don't think we have any Chinese students.
