Carsick Cars (围城) were formed in 2005 in Beijing, China and have earned their reputation at the pinnacle of Beijing's live music scene – something borne out by the invitation to open for Sonic Youth at their idols’ 2007 Beijing show.
Influenced by Sonic Youth, Velvet Underground, Suicide, Glenn Branca, the Stooges, and Joy Division, Carsick Cars gigs are riotous explosions of pent-up energy and frustration. There's a certain fearlessness to their music, one that is born of the confidence of the talented: they are not afraid to write perfect, instantaneously catchy songs, and they are just as unafraid of detonating them midstream amid a howling wall of guitar noise.
In 2010, Levis and Li Qing decided to leave the band, due to creative differences. Their positions will be filled by He Fan (of Birdstriking) and Ben Ben (of BOYZ & GIRL).Line Up:Guitar/Vocals : Shouwang (张守望) (White)Bass : Levis (李维思) (Snapline)Percussion : Li Qing (李青) (Snapline)
