Round Eye (China)
Round Eye, the experimental freak punk outfit have accrued quite a loud and controversial name for themselves since forming in 2012. The Shanghai based group have shown no mercy nor fatigue in sound development or work ethic and have as of late been a crucial force in bridging a wide gap between the eastern and western hemispheres of punk rock. Along with blazing a gnarly trail all over the globe (China, USA, Mexico, S. Korea, Japan, and much of Europe) they’ve toured the mainland of China a number of times and have played host to visiting western groups and some legends as well.
They’ve shared stages with western groups such as Mike Watt & the Missingmen, The Fleshtones, D.O.A., MDC, The FUs, Paul Collins Beat, M.O.T.O., Ceremony, and Iceage, eastern groups such as P.K.14, SMZB, SUBS, Hang on the Box, and Misandao.
and have been banned from performing on the mainland by the Ministry of Culture during a tour with UK punk legends The Boys (as a result the tour was forced to literally go underground where they held the secret gigs in bomb shelters around the country (documented by VICE China in an hour long recorded set). The ban lasted only the duration of the tour and was assigned due to «crowd control issues» following the tragic Shanghai bund stampede, a controversial tour poster, and reports of Round Eye's lewd stage antics.
They’ve won the “Best Local Band” title from Shanghai’s City Weekend magazine two years in a row. They’ve released several music videos: one starring famed Chinese actress Wang Lin and another filmed entirely in North Korea becoming the first rock band to do so in the DPRK.
They've honed their unconventional blend of 50s R&B Free Jazz and Punk with a critically acclaimed EP “Full Circle” on Ripping/Genjing Records which featured Greg Ginn (Black Flag) and have drawn comparisons to the Stooges, Captain Beefheart, Dr. Feelgood and The Fall. In 2015 they dropped their eponymous LP Round Eye which features saxophonist Steve Mackay (Stooges/Violent Femmes) and low-fi legend R. Stevie Moore. That summer they began another tour of mainland China with Steve Mackay on tenor (this tour being the last tour for Steve as he sadly passed away later that year) and toured the US for another 32 dates. 2017 will usher in their 2nd LP «Monster Vision» on Sudden Death Records and see them tour the world once again.
