Lest I be accused of Orientalism, I’ll just flat-out state for the record that I’ve never written about a Chinese rock act before, and it has nothing to do with any horribly patronizing Western attitude toward the East, and more to do w/ the fact that I’d never even heard a Chinese rock act. So it was really some act of fortune that the first two I did hear – a few weeks ago, no less – were this band’s predecessor The Offset: Spectacles and then Gong Gong Gong themselves, both of whom were flagged for me on the same day by a fella who knows a thing or two about the underground.
Tom Ng has played guitar and sung in both Beijing-based bands, and w/ Canadian national & Chinese citizen Joshua Frank, has been generating a sort of noisy, motoring boogie blues in Gong Gong Gong for the last couple years. The 45’s a choppy, loud and heavily rhythmic amalgam of The Monks, 60s biker psych, all the colors of the rainbow and all the flavors of the world. Tense music for humid climes. I got to visit Shenzhen, China in mid-2018 and can state with my limited on-the-ground authority that there are teeming sub-undergrounds of freaks, weirdos, dopers, vinyl record fiends and punkers lurking behind the red curtain. Gong Gong Gong are among the first proof points us Occidentals get to shove into our record collections. (Wharf Cat; wharfcatrecords.com)
Siouxsie Sioux, is that you? Nah, I know it’s not because this is just too good to be the Banshees, who were great when they were awesome, and just awful the other 85% of the time. Current Affairs are a newish band from Glasgow, Scotland, and their debut is an utterly infectious double A-side that manages to thread the needle between 80s postpunk throwback/tribute & forward-looking, muscular throb.
Hey, I’ll take your Girls At Our Best! and see you one Current Affairs, who not only tack on some slashing garage punk trappings onto a watery goth framework, but have a singer (Joan Sweeney) who can moan out a bouncy tune as well as any heavy-lidded ice queen from the Thatcher years. The 45 comes housed in a lovely risograph sleeve in an edition of 320; don’t sleep on it or some Batcave DJ will drive up demand & you’ll be buying it off the wall at Vinyl Fetish in five years.
