玩音樂大不易,探討近年休團與復出現象 – Blow 吹音樂

Blow media editor with a piece on the long-running TW indie bands that have either disbanded (Shimmering Islands/Sugar Plum Ferry) or gone on extended hiatus (Echo, Bearbabes, Tizzy Bac, My 8 Day Weekend, etc.), and a closer look at some bands that resumed activity after a long hiatus. (I’m Not Dorothy, Freckles, Sunset Rollercoaster, Quarterback, etc.)

Hm, just thinking that a band can decide to quit or go on hiatus, but that doesn’t mean every member wanted to stop; one could imagine new groups formed from musicians that suddenly have a lot of free time. Having said that, I know that some of the musicians in the bands mentioned above are quite busy in other projects. (e.g. Che-Yu Hsu from Tizzy Bac and 江鎮宇 from My 8 Day Weekend are both in Frandé)

Interview with the artist who has done Tizzy Bac’s album covers

藍祺聖 (Lan Chi Sheng). He’s worked with other Taiwan indies, including Echo.
There’s way more to his work than album covers, tho; check out his flickr site:
You can see many of the album covers at the StreetVoice link and also this sample page of his work, HERE.
