Chinese Band: PunkHoo (胖虎乐团)

Posted by Charlie @ Discovering Mandarin Sunday, 30 August 2009
乐队(band): 胖虎乐团 PunkHoo
专辑(album): Life & Live
国家(country): Taiwan, Taipei
发行时间(release date): 2006

PunkHoo (literal translation as far as I can tell works out more like : 'Fat Tiger Orchestra') have a pop punk sound heavily influenced I assume by SUM 41. The band from Taipei has been carving a name for itself on the walls of the city's music scene. Singing mainly in Chinese with the odd line shouted out in English. The melodic offerings of "Life & Live" work towards the sound of pop-punkers like new Green Day, Blink 182. Though the album was released in 2006, the song was reccomended to me by a friend.
