Coming Down to Beijing

Legbamel Not-Pop

How often do you get a Chinese punk band singing with a ska pro like Dicky Barrett? If the results all turned out like Coming Down to Beijing, the answer would be, “Not often enough.” Brain Failure, the Chinese band in question, released an EP of tracks that they recorded with Big D and the Kids’ Table in 2007. On their own, Brain Failure sounds more like Rancid than the Mighty Mighty Bosstones, but their high energy combines beautifully with that of the ever-rough-sounding Mr. Barrett and his cohorts to create a fun sound. I wouldn’t link to a video this cheesy, but it was either this or a link to the Brain Failure MySpace page. Really, wouldn’t you rather stay here?
