Event Details

Lonely Leary: Born from boredom and raised in chaos, psych-damaged Beijing trio Lonely Leary plays artful post-punk in the vein of P.K.14 and Joy Division, but leaner and meaner than all their peers. New song “Stay Ugly”: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aE-L-9SOW28

Ed Bahonie: Once A rockstar, chose the reclusive life of a synthesizer nerd. He invites you to join him in his experiment in self reliance and solitude. After many fruitfull discussions with his beloved band members, Ed Bahonie writes, records and performs solo. Debut album expected in 2019, first single out now: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LclorKAElYc

Sterrenreiziger (Pieter John): His music has been influenced by Nick Cave, David Bowie and Ramses Shaffy. As a child Pieter John learned to play classical piano, and since he was sixteen he switched to pop and he also started singing. Pieter John makes both Dutch and English music. His songs are about misfits, dark types and why he can’t stop overthinking about everything and find peace of mind. In 2016 he played at the first edition of festival Wildeburg.

About Lonely Leary (Beijing):
“The three-piece band has a wonderful addictive sound – one that’s full of jagged edges, paranoid unease, and brooding psychedelic overtones. And while the band wears its influences on their sleeve, their noise rock rowdiness and playful mischievous wordplay are all their own. Operating in the post punk dance hall world with such confident and tweaked relish, it sticks in you like a knife.” — Live Beijing Music

Many bands around China have tuned into a lean, heavy post-punk sound over the last 15 years, but nobody does it meaner than Lonely Leary. After a few lineup changes since forming in 2012, the trio is back to their original formation: college classmates Qiu Chi, Song Ang, and Li Baoning, who forged their sound out of the crushing boredom that pervaded their university campus in a culture-starved outreach of Shandong province. Since relocating to Beijing and plugging in to the capital’s cresting wave of downer music, Lonely Leary has landed on their trademark dynamic, blending fast drums, muddy bass and rough guitar noise into a tense, menacing pummel.

“Though they only really started in 2014, Lonely Leary are one of those bands with such a sharply realized sound – Spacemen 3-type noise psych infused with driving post-punk darkness – that you’d swear they’d been playing for years.” — Time Out

New album “Through the Park, Almost There” out now! produced by Yang Haisong (PK14) on CD and vinyl by Maybe Mars Records
