[ASIAN POWER] Singapore Punk Rock Legend – Plainsunset – Pioneer

有留意亞洲獨立音樂的樂迷相信不會對新加坡朋克搖滾傳奇 Plainsunset感到陌生。他們決定在年底發行最後專輯 Both Boxer & Benjamin,當中包括這個新單曲 Pioneer。請給他們一些支持吧!Plainsunset 主唱 Jon Chan 分享新曲:「Pioneer是獻給世界各地的先驅,例如發明家、國家領導者、社會運動領袖等。但在悲觀的角度來看,隨著時間過去,我們所做的一切都會被遺忘的。」

Plainsunset 是新加坡迄今為止最有影響力和發人深省的樂隊之一。他們於1996年成立,已成為新加坡本地音樂圈無人不曉的名字 ; 曾到馬來西亞、香港、菲律賓、新西蘭、中國及澳洲作巡演。

If you are interested in Asian independent music, Singaporean punk-rock legend Plainsunset must be no strangers to you. Unfortunately the band decide to release their final album, Both Boxer & Benjamin, later this year… But for now, they have just dropped a brand new video for “Pioneer”. Show them some support!

Job Chan, frontman of Plainsunset, explains that the song is “dedicated to pioneers everywhere, from those who found and build a nation to those who start a movement. It also has a slightly cynical edge to it, that after a while, everything we do will be forgotten.”

Plainsunset is by far one of the most influential and inspiring bands in Singapore to date. Formed in 1996, Plainsunset has become a household name for local music in Singapore; with 4 full-length albums, 2 re-issues and 1 EP under their belt, they have taken their music to Malaysia, Hong Kong, The Philippines, New Zealand, China and most recently Australia.

QUESTIONS: Does anyone in this world still buy CDs? 還有人會購買CD或其他實體唱片嗎?

在這個數碼年代,還有多少人會繼續用硬多的金錢逛唱片鋪、購買實體唱片、細細閱讀內𥚃歌詞集、把CD拿上手欣賞上面的刻字嗎?希望大家都會繼續享受這個過程吧!正如早前Noisey UK雜誌上所提到:「對大多數人來說,這十多年來實體唱片已經變得多餘。自從iPod面世後,我們意識到不需要再把帶著像個碟子般大的隨身聽CD機,而實體唱片也如色情雜誌和錄影帶出租店一樣逐漸消失。」

// To most of us, the compact disc has been redundant for over a decade now. Ever since the iPod came along, and we realized we no longer had to walk around the streets clutching a walkman the size of a dinner plate, CDs have gradually disappeared from view, like porn mags or video rental stores or successful marriages. // Noisey UK, published on September 20.
