Check it out – one of our favourite flyers everer. As you can see, the Godfather of power pop himself is teaming up with local lads Round Eye. There couldn’t be a better pairing – Round Eye have a solid reputation as stalwarts of the local independent scene. Since their formation in 2012, Round Eye have gone on three China tours, one Asia tour, supported Beijing legends P.K. 14, released a critically acclaimed 12” LP Full Circle featuring Black Flag guitarist Greg Ginn and won the prestigious title of City Weekend’s band of the year in a totally un-rigged and reliable internet poll.

Here’s a quirky ol’ vid showing what the crew got up to in the filming of their twisted, mind bending, consciousness altering music video for Carne Seca.

2014《觉》音乐+艺术节:他们是谁?Paul Collins’ Beat // JUE | Music + Art 2014: Who’s Who? Paul Collins’ Beat

The Beat乐队由Paul Collins组建。他年少时在希腊、越南、和欧洲多国居住,之后才回到老家纽约。他曾在名声赫赫的朱丽亚音乐学院学习。后又搬去旧金山,并于1974年 同作曲Jack Lee 以及贝斯手Peter Case一起组建了The Nerves乐队。The Nerves后来成为美国蒸蒸日上的朋克摇滚乐先驱之一。他们独立发行了四首单曲,其中就包括后来被Blondie翻唱而大热的经典”Hanging on the Telephone”。

The Nerves于1977年解散,Collins搬去了洛杉矶,并同贝斯手Steve Huff、鼓手Mike Ruiz以及首席吉他手Larry Whitman一起成立了The Beat乐队。The Beat曾与The Police、The Jam以及Joe Jackson一起巡演。他们经常做客电视节目,还与The Doors的制作人Bruce Botnick一起制作了首发同名专辑。这张专辑里有受到甲壳虫乐队以及飞鸟乐队影响的吉他演奏和动人和声,为日后大火的The Knack乐队派“细领带强力摇滚”奠了基。90年代,The Beat以Paul Collins’ Beat的名称重组,并组建了全新的组员:Juancho Lopez(贝司),Manolo Cahuchola(吉他),Christopher Bongers(鼓)。

Paul Collins’ Beat has an impressive lineage. Originally called The Beat, the band was founded by Paul Collins of The Nerves fame (1974). The Nerves were one of the pioneers of the burgeoning US punk-rock scene, independently releasing their own 4-song EP, which included that classic tune “Hanging on the Telephone” (which later became a hit for Blondie).

After The Nerves disbanded in 1977, Collins moved to LA and formed The Beat with bassist Steve Huff, drummer Mike Ruiz and lead guitarist Larry Whitman. The Beat have toured with The Police, The Jam and Joe Jackson to name a few, and later recorded their debut self-titled album with producer Bruce Botnick (who produced The Doors). In the 90s, The Beat re-formed as Paul Collins’ Beat, continuing an amazing musical legacy with a new line-up that features Juancho Lopez (bass), Manolo Cahuchola (guitar) and Christopher Bongers (drums).

Here’s an interview with the man behind the name, the bastion of Power Pop himelf, Mr. Collins.
