Punk Rock in China?
I was somewhat surprised to find out that there is a Punk rock scene in China
You'd think that the Communist Party (which is only now communist in name) would strongly disapprove of Punk Rock.
You'd think that the Communist Party would disapprove of rock & roll in general but there is an annual pop festival in Beijing which nine Inch Nails have performed at.
From what I can tell the Communist Party are okay with rock/pop music so long as its as its not political.
When you think about it a great deal of Punk Rock these days doesn't have that anti-authoritarian zeal it once did, in fact a great deal of punk rock has become somewhat corporate.
I'm just wondering if the authorities in China would welcome a tour from The International Noise Conspiracy being as they're a punk rock band who are communists.
