Mr. Graceless 

 

This was the first Chinese band we shot with when we went to Beijing. We weren't sure what to expect. None of us knew what the music scene was like there and we feared it wouldn't be good. Mr. Graceless put those concerns to bed though with this song and the rest of the bands we met with left us very impressed.

 

The owner of the Bar and record label Maybe Mars Michael Pettis chatted with us about the Beijing music scene. We were surprised to see him on TV back in the states not long after we returned commenting on the Asian financial markets. He's apparently a well known economist and frequently appears on news programs.
