about

Founded in 1996, SMZB was one of the first punk bands to form in China and the first to originate from Wuhan, one of cities at the heart of China’s burgeoning underground music scene. Drawing their own influences from Celtic-inspired bands like Dropkick Murphys and Flogging Molly, and transforming these influences in response to the massive and outof-control social transformations taking place in their hometown and throughout China, SMZB is widely recognized as one of China’s most influential bands, whose fans include musicians from many of the most important punk and underground rock bands throughout China. Although they have produced five CDs to date, only the first one, released by Scream, was approved for sale in China, the rest were released only in Europe and North America.

Originally a trio when they first began playing smoky clubs and small
performance spaces in their home town, SMZB has subsequently gone
through several member changes and, by the end of 2002, had evolved
into a quartet. During the early years the band kept up a rigorous schedule of shows and tours throughout China and eventually abroad. In 2004 SMZB toured across Southeast Asia and in 2005 they completed their first European tour with the help of Norway’s October Party Records. In 2006 the band changed their line-up yet again replacing their guitar and bass players and adding a flute & tin whistle to complete the current fivemember line-up. Through these changes SMZB has grown and developed, smashing together in their music a mélange of Chinese influences, Celtic noise, and straight punk fury which has resulted in a unique style that is instantly recognizable.

It is not just as musicians that SMZB has helped create the explosion in
music that China is currently experiencing. Since the very beginnings
of China’s underground rock scene founding members Wu Wei and Hu
Juan have been active promoting shows, booking tours for foreign bands, and helping younger punk bands gain a foothold in the scene. Shortly after they were formed they founded the Wuhan Riot Group, a collective of Wuhan punk bands that was instrumental in forging the Wuhan underground music scene. SMZB continues to serve as role models for a whole generation of Chinese punk rockers and after ten years are considered one of the key bands in the explosive Chinese music scene.

Their sixth CD release, Ten Years Rebellion, was recorded in Wuhan
and mixed in Norway.

Track Name: Scream For Life
Don't stop! when you start screaming for the life is keeping on;
Don't stop! when you start screaming for the silent masses!
Scream for the life,
Scream for the right,
Scream for the truth and faith,
We never stop what we are fighting for,
We never stop singing!

Don't stop! when you start revolting for the life is keeping on;
Don't stop! when you start revolting for the silent masses!
Scream for the life,
Scream for the right,
Scream the truth and faith,
We never stop what we are fighting for,
We never stop singing!


当你开始呐喊就不要停止,因为这生活还在继续;
当你开始呐喊就不要停止,为了那沉默的大多数。

为了生命呐喊,为了权利呐喊,为了真实和信仰呐喊!
我们绝不会停止我们的战斗,我们绝不会停止去歌唱!

当你开始反抗就不要停止,因为这生活还在继续;
当你开始反抗就不要停止,为了那沉默的大多数。
Track Name: Ten Years Rebellion
Ten years fun,
Ten years down,
Ten years chaos and rebellion!

I feel I'm still young, because I chosed punk rock;
I feel more stronger, for I've seen through the society;
We've made some people uncomfortable, for I sing their raw nerves;
We are not waiting to be eaten up, like those cats and dogs in the street.
I said: Mom, I do not want to live like you,
I do not want to die like dad.
I said: Mom, I do not want to waste my life.
I do not want to wait forever.
I do not want to live without dreams,
Even if I feel so lonely.
We may sing for longer;
We may sing forever;
That's what I believe!

I started playing punk rock music in 1996,
for I can't keep quiet any longer, something needs to be resisted.
Resignation is not my life style, if you fight, maybe you will win,
If you choose to compromise, you will definitely lose;
I said: Mom, I do not want to live like you,
I do not want to die like dad.
I said: Mom, I do not want to waste my life.
I do not want to wait forever.
I do not want to live without dreams,
Even if I feel so lonely.
We may sing for longer;
We may sing forever;
That's what I believe!

Ten years fun,
Ten years down,
Ten years chaos and rebellion!
Track Name: Born to Pay
Pay the hospital,pay the school,
Otherwise you'll be kept outdoor;
Pay the society and the government,
Or you'll be left by your country.

You must pay your blood and your tears,
You must pay for yourself and your family,
You must pay all of your life,
You must pay for the money.

You must pay for anything in your life,
Pay for anything since you were born,
You must pay for anything in your life,
You must pay for anything until you die.

You pay all of your life,
But what you get from the society?
You pay all of your life,
Cuz your life is not priceless.
Track Name: Girl's Dream
You come from different cities,
Even come back from overseas;
With various songs that you are singing,
You are showing yourself bravely on the stage;

You come together with a same dream,
Superstar is what you want to be;
You are playing a same game,
But you can not control the ending.

You are singing and dancing on the stage,
But don't become controlled as their puppets.
You are crying and laughing on the stage,
But don't become their money-making machines.
You want to realize your dream on the stage,
But the unfair competition breaks your dream.
Track Name: Rubbish Youth
带上你的行李,让我们一起走,
因为这里已经越来越臭;
穿上你的皮靴,让我们走上街去,
看看周围真他妈丑陋!
噢!那些垃圾音乐,充满每一条街,
让你们的大脑变成一坨屎!
看看你们自己,你们是否继续,
是否继续这样生活下去,
你们象堆垃圾,生活在这里,
这个已经腐烂的城市里!
噢!那些垃圾青年,就象这个城市,
身体里是一颗衰老的心!

Track Name: For Friends and Beer
We can live better without your socialism,
We can live better without the party,
We don't need more money,but only punk rock music,
We can live better with friends and beer!

We can live better without lies and tears,
We can live better without autocracy,
We don't need your freedom and your democracy,
We just want to live truly!

We need a brand-new country,
Which will make you happy,
We need to build a brand-new country,
We can live truly.
Track Name: Society Welcomes You
当你进入这个社会,总有个角色在等你去扮演;
也许你拥有一个梦想,现实绝不会让它实现;

你要努力去扮演好你的角色,
或者选择做社会的弃儿,
你要努力去忘掉你的梦想,
然后投入到现实的怀抱;

陷入这个社会你不能自拔,
你就是其中的一道伤疤,
社会主义早已在这里开花,
你也必须在这土地上发芽;

欢迎你!
社会主义之花!
Track Name: Nobody Knows
我们还要在这样一个社会生活多久?
还有多少愚昧的事会发生在这土地上?
可是没有人知道,也没有人介意,
每当我走在街上就会想到这些。
太多无辜的血曾经流淌在这土地上,
我们怎么能够遗忘那么多的愤怒和悲伤,
可是没有人关心,也没人能记起,
每当我看着天空就会想到这些。
不要让你的心和血变冷,
不要让你的身体感觉不到疼;
不要让你的灵魂被风带走!
Track Name: Great Wuhan
我出生在这里,这个最热的城市,
800多万人民生活在这里,
武昌起义打响第一枪在这里,
孙中山的名字永远记在我心里,

我带着梦想生活在这里,
我带着希望走在每一条街上,
我想改变这个城市,
因为她永远属于我和你;

她会得到自由,她会变得美丽,
这里不会永远象一个监狱,
打破黑暗就不会再有哭泣,
一颗种子已经埋在心里;

这是一个朋克城市--武汉!
唱这首歌为你--武汉!
我们就在这里开始反抗!
武汉!我们一起干杯为你!

I was born here, this hottest city,
800 millions people live here,
In 1911,the Wuchang Uprising fired here,
Sunzhongsan is always kept in my mind,

I live here with my dream,
I walk on the street with my hope,
I want to change this city,
Because she belongs to you and me;

She will be beautiful,she will get freedom,
It won't be like a prison here forever,
Break the darkness, there will be no more tears,
A seed has been buried in my heart.

Here is a punk city-- Wuhan!
We sing this song for you -- Wuhan!
We start to rebel and fight in Wuhan,
Everybody cheers for you!
Track Name: Tour of Freedom
Driving on the highway in Europe,
We are on the 50 days tour.
I feel like a prisoner,
I get the freedom suddenly.
I feel so great,i like this feeling.
I tell them we are the punx from china.

We get a long tour!
We get short freedom!
Tour for freedom....!
Hey ho!let's go,get in the car.
Track Name: Chinalism
你们就在这里被他们代表,
要把你们带向哪里?
你的生活正在被他们代替;
Chinalism...!

你们就在这里享受着和谐,
你的思想就是你的监狱,
血肉之驱已不再是你的身体!

当你呼吸着城市的空气,
你觉得这是你的唯一,
这是你的唯一的意义;
Chinalism...!

你已不再需要任何的勇气,
你已不再感到压抑,
因为墙上那道影子就是你!

You are just a shadow on the street!
You need sunshine which could set you free!
You are living in the rays of Chinalism!
You are living like a shadow!
Track Name: Drunk With City
The city is a hot pot,
And we are thrown inside;
When the city is drunk,
We are vomited out.

The city is a big party,
It'll never be over.
The city is a girl,
I'm falling for her.

Here is a heaven for me;
Here is a hell for me,
I can't live without her,
I wanna get drunk with her.

I was born here,
I will die here,
I can't escape from here,
I wanna get drunk with her.

We are the vomitus of this city,
We are the alcohol of this city.

I'm walking down the street,
The city belongs to me;
I'm waiting for a full moon night,
Drunk with the street,
Drunk with the city.
Track Name: Judy Riot
She stays in a cage.
She doesn't know what is fear.
She never stop running and biting everyday.

she lives without worry,
she lives like an anarchist,
she lives happily and simply with me.

She riots everyday,
And everyday she riots.
never stop rioting,oh Judy riot!

By nature She is stubborn.
By nature She destroys.
By nature She rebels.
By nature She is a punk.

If she could speak,
I know she would say something.
And tell people what they should do.

Riot,Judy riot!
