New Pants Go Even More Retro

April 20, 2009

One of my favorite Chinese rock bands, New Pants, used to sound kinda 90s pop-punk, then went through a sorta 80s electro-rock phase (that claymation video is legendary), before going more bizarro glam-dance-rock (especially in this ridiculous video or, even more so, this one).

However, I just discovered a video they made last year, making fun or paying homage to the early Beijing rock scene of the early-mid 1980s. It is unbelievably hilarious and surprisingly accurate in its depiction of bands like Black Panther and Tang Dynasty. Check out “Even Wild Men (Barbarians) Have Love”:
