Rice Corpse - Mrs. Rice
Amazing crazy genius, this Beijing band started by Lucas Abela, aka the owner of Dual Plover and virtuoso of the glass plate. The name refers to the Chinese character for shit, which itself is the combination of the two characters for corpse and rice. It’s a trio of glass, drums and piano. Drummer was Yang Yang whose antics in his own band Mafeisan has given him the reputation of being the craziest exponent of the normally conservative Beijing scene. His ultra loud out and proud personality is in stark contrast to the mild mannered and brutally shy Li Zenghui who agreed to be the pianist. Existing for a limited time and without a common language to interrupt they managed to create these six varied and strangely focused improvisations.
