Today we added a few new bands from the emo rock genre to our wiki. First of all the Tookoo-drive King-Size China 2 compilation and its related band Flip Side, From Next In and Psycho Candy. Surprise surprise, one of the bands on the compilation is Xi’an-originated new metal / emo rock band Pulse.
I came across Pulse at the end of 2003 in the Bella Bar in Xi’an after a show which blew me away (my first rock show in China). Afterwards we drank a little, talked, played drinking games and joined the whole underground scene towards the Muslim Street of Xi’an, eating till late nite. Pulse drummer at that time, Hao Yi Yang (Allen) became a friend of mine that time and I still have their demo record in the Rock in China collection…
Further additions are related to those bands, such as Flip Side’ record Never ending journey.
