Our selection for today is, if we can be forgiven for gushing, totally awesome. The Spring and Autumn Band was started by veteran rocker and native-American Kaiser Kuo who plays guitar on this piece and earlier founded China's first heavy metal group: Tang Dynasty. "Between the Mountains and the Sea" stretches away from conventional metal and achieves a feeling of almost unworldly loss. We hope you like it as much as we do.
Those in China should know that Kaiser and the band are still regularly on tour. If you're in Beijing you may also be familiar with Kaiser's regular column "Ich Bin Ein Beijiner" which appears monthly on the last page of the city magazine That's Beijing. It rocks in a different way.* Note: We've embedded this version from Chinese video site Tudou as it has the best sound quality. All of you outside China might want to check out this live version available on Youtube.
