Asia Noise Connection at the Wall
Kandala Records and Lacking Sound Festival present Asia Noise Connection at the Wall this Saturday, June 28 in Taipei. Featuring Torturing Nurse (Shanghai), Jiang ZhuYun (Shanghai), Mescaline (Taipei) and Sonic Deadhorse (Taipei).
Yan Jun wrote recently in the Wire about Torturing Nurse:
"This ten year old noise duo have played in all kinds of situations in Shanghai including a mothership event called Noishanghai, a monthly concert in an underground bar. They are famous even if most people don’t really want to listen to them. Once Thurston Moore said if there is one Chinese band Sonic Youth wants to play with, it’s Torturing Nurse. But Torturing Nurse responded through their social media: we don’t care about that kind of rock star posing.
"Sometimes organisers ask Torturing Nurse to play “not too loud”. I’ve seen audience members run away from their gigs. But, they’re still invited to play at art or fashion events. The underground is welcome here: this city is sensitive and open. Somehow it doesn’t care what it’s open for. And Torturing Nurse don’t care either. Fair enough"
