The Underground Ltd. 呈獻

Heavy Unplugged: Wan Chai Warriors, Mockingbird, Bamboo Star

The Underground 這次打破傳統,請來三隊搖滾金屬樂隊進行《不插電搖滾夜》。樂隊們史無前例地換掉電結他、重新編曲,以全新演釋方式將平日重型搖擺歌曲,用同樣的熱血搖滾態度,帶出赤裸裸的跳脫音色。 
首先上場的是魅力四重奏「Wan Chai Warriors」。他們富娛樂性的演出,爆發出一首又一首話題歌曲。很難想像這隊重型樂隊,收起標誌性嘶吼,返回最原始聲音;讓我們期待他們不插電的創新版本。 
下一隊是剛於今年拿下「Volkswagen x Underground’s Battle of the Bands」的冠軍隊伍「Mockingbird」。隊中女主音的聲線更被媲美如Paramore女主音Hayley Williams般強勁。只此一晚,他們暫時放下瘋狂一面,以清晰原音奏出他們首首流行旋律。 
最後壓軸出場的是Planetrox勝出隊、曾遠赴加拿大演出的金屬樂隊「Bamboo Star」。他們說道:「不插電能促使我們重新評估我們音樂中最精華的本質。」樂迷們絕不能錯過他們這次獨一無二的輕鬆搖擺演釋。 
現場感受這三隊著名搖滾樂隊難得一見的不插電演出吧!9月2日(星期六)前往Morrison Café and Bar 現場欣賞這場The Underground少有的搖滾派對。

Wan Chai Warriors

Wan Chai Warriors is a band from Hong Kong formed in November 2014. The line-up consists of four members: Cain McInerney (vocals), Vincenzo Nardelli (guitar), Sergio Capuzzimati (bass) and Jamie Edwards (drums). They started playing covers of classic rock bands (i.e. Deep Purple, Jimi Hendrix) along with some heavier tunes of bands such as Metallica and AC/DC among others, before moving on and playing original music. Their music is a mix of rock and hard rock with some modern influences that reflect the background of the band members. At the beginning of 2015 they took part in The Underground HK x Parsons Music Battle of the Bands 2015, where they played at the final and won the Gibson Award for best guitar player.

How Wan Chai Warriors are challenged by an unplugged show:
One of our favourite albums to listen to is Nirvana’s unplugged album. So, when we were given the opportunity to perform at the UNDERGROUND unplugged show we jumped at the offer. Most people who know our band will not think it is likely that we would be able to have an acoustic version of our songs because all of our songs pack a punch and we have screaming vocals on occasion. But we have modified our songs to suit a quieter atmosphere while still retaining all the nuts and bolts.

Bamboo Star

Our music is a mix of blend of heavy rock, classic metal, pop-punk and bluesy rock n’ roll, but we prefer to just say ‘hard rock’ and let the audience decide! Our sound is typically quite over-the-top with a tonne of things going on. Stripping back to acoustic arrangements will force us to really evaluate what the essence of the songs really are and to prioritise what shines through.

Bamboo Star has been featured on Hong Kong TV and was the China winner of the Planetrox international band competition 2015, after which they toured Toronto and Quebec with success. The band continually performs shows in Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, and China.

The band is one of only two Hong Kong bands to ever be signed to an American label, and Bamboo Star’s EP Broken Hearts and Bleeding Parts was released on November 11, 2016 by Vertusent Music Group from New York, distributed by RED Distribution/The Orchard, divisions of Sony Music Entertainment.

Bamboo Star is currently in the studio recording a new album for 2017.
