History

Slap, the new Chinese folk rock. After over 10 years of creative skills and live performance, their early attitude of piercingly critizising has grown into a more containing and introspective approach.

taken from beijinggigguide.com:

Slap (耳光乐队) is an indie funk rock band from Beijing. Slap's works are mostly drawn from the streets and marketplaces around us in life, the understanding of ordinary people in life we all encounter. It is confusing and difficult, but using bitter irony they sharply criticize unequal treatment and face the existence of beauty and ugliness of human nature. They use the most "three vulgar" language, the melody with Chinese characteristics depict a moving picture of the ecological public streets and marketplaces. The name 'Slap' describes real life, waking up from the fog in the quest of people, actively facing adversity with an optimistic attitude to find that better life.
