Roxymoron won over Taiwanese fans with their dancey rock and charming personalities, then decided they’d go conquer England. GigGuide.tw caught up with drummer John Stephenson to check on their Empire, getting an education on English winters and the sex life of koalas along the way.
We were racing the clock to get in touch with Sumin Jo, member of Korean punk-rock band, Patients, before their Taipei debut at the Beastie Rock Festival. Fresh from their English Tour in Liverpool and London, Jo introduces us to Patients’ unique music style, Hybrid-Punk, and shares more information on their tour in Taiwan.
Hardcore band King Ly Chee are among the long list of internationals playing Heart-Town Festival in Taichung this month. We caught up with Riz Farooqi, who since forming the band 15 years ago has been one of loudest voices in promoting hardcore in Asia — and that ain’t proving easy!
