Maybe Mars Records Presents: FENG CHUI WAN QIAO · CHUI WAN

Guest: DIRTY FINGERS

Chui Wan is a four-piece experimental psychedelic rock band from Beijing. They get their name from Daoist philosopher Zhuangzi’s “Qi Wu Lun” (齐物论), a mystical work on the relationship between nature and human life. The spirit of Zhuangzi’s thought is reflected in the modern Chinese idiom: “谓风吹万窍,发出各种音响。” – “When the wind blows, every sound may be heard therein.” Inspired by this concept of seeking the infinite from the mundane, the core of Chui Wan’s sound is formed by the improvisational compositions of multi-instrumentalist Yan Yulong. His lush arrangements of guitar, keyboard, viola, other assorted instruments and random sound samples often eschew reliable melodies and vocal harmonies in favor of occasional passages of minimal drone or maximal sonic layerings. Bassist Wu Qiong and drummer Wen Zheng provide a stable ground floor from which the band can continually float away, like a sound half-heard and soon gone on a gust of wind.

This will be the premiere of Chui Wan’s new line-up with new guitar player Guo Zhen (Future Orients’ guitar player) and new drummer Wen Zheng (former drummer of Penicillin).

Dirty Fingers
Founded in 2013 to be disbanded at any time.
At first it was a student band. With the addition of Xiaohai, it became a gangster band. Then absorbed Brazilian drummer Zhao Zilong and the piano master Haiming, become a forever immortal legend rock band…
