China rejects US ‘thug亚博体育注册419论坛ime’ description

On Friday the Foreign Ministry rejected the United States’ labeling China as “a thuggish regime”, saying Washington has confo

unded right with wrong in an attempt to conceal the fact it interferes in China’s domestic affairs亚博体育注册419论坛

The spokesperson of the US State Department was astonished to claim the job of American diplomats was to meddle with t

亚博体育注册419论坛品茶微信he domestic affairs of other countries, the ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said in a statement.

“Can the world be at peace with the way the US operates?” Hua asked in the statement.

Hua’s comments came as US State Department spokeswoman Morgan Ortagus on Thursday called China a “thuggish regime” for disclosing pho亚博体育注册419论坛品茶微信

tographs and personal details of a US diplomat who met with major leaders of the “Hong Kong Independence” activist groups.

The US State Department spokesperson should look at her own words and behaviors instead of using media reports to hit

亚博体育注册419论坛out at the government of another country, Hua said, adding US interference in Hong Kong affairs has arous

ed resolute opposition and strong indignation from the Chinese people, including Hong Kong compatriots.

She urged the US side to observe international law and basic norms governing intern亚博体育注册419论坛

ational relations, and stop meddling in Hong Kong affairs and interfering in China’s domestic affairs.

亚博体育注册419论坛品茶微信The Office of the Commissioner of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in the H

ong Kong Special Administrative Region also said on its website that the labeling is a b

latant slander against China, which has confounded right with wrong and again exposed US gangster logic and hegemonic thinking.亚博体育注册419论坛

The spokesperson said that instead of repenting of and stopping its arb

亚博体育注册419论坛品茶微信itrary interference in Hong Kong affairs, which are China’s domestic affairs, the US side

has made venomous and unfounded allegations against the Chinese government

for the leak of the information. It perceives China with malice, which again reveals its dark mentality.

This song is even older than some of the people who are watching the show,” the bassist Ou says in the sho

亚博体育注册419论坛w. “Witnessing the evolution of Chinese rock music is a fascinating experience. We are proud that we are part of it as The Face.”

Western rock music first gained popularity in China in the 1980s with a performance given by the rock singer-songwriter Cui Jian on May 9, 1986, during a concert at Beijing Workers’ Stadium. At the packed venue, the then 25-year亚博体育注册419论坛

-old Cui performed his most well-known song, Nothing to My Name, which opened a chapter in China’s rock music story at a time when few Chinese knew what rock ‘n’ roll was.

亚博体育注册419论坛品茶微信The song also marked the start of a journey that would later make Cui China’s godfather of rock ‘n’ roll. It also ushered in a go

lden era of original Chinese rock bands influenced by the Western music genre and expressing themselves in their mother tongue. The first

rock bands included the heavy metal band Tang Dynasty, founded in 1988, the pop-rock band Black Panther, formed in 1987, and The Face.亚博体育注册419论坛

“Material possessions like big houses and fast cars were the last things on our mind,” Ou says. “Instead, we were hungry for roc

k music and found any possible way to get the latest music from Western bands. Compared with young bands today, we had few opportunities to perfo

rm onstage because the audiences were smaller and there were few live house venues. But we were very happy because we truly loved the music.”亚博体育注册419论坛品茶微信

In 1994 Ou, then 23, performed as a bassist at the Chinese Rock Power concert at the Hong Kong Arena. Bringing toget

her He Yong, Dou Wei, the former lead vocalist of Black Panther, Zhang Chu and Tang Dynasty, the concert was the first showcase for musicians from

the mainland to perform in Hong Kong. It stunned Hong 亚博体育注册419论坛Kong audiences and created the momentum for a wave of rock music to wash across the country.

“Looking back, those legendary musicians and their works are still inspiring for the young

bands,” Ou says. “They shaped the golden era of China’s rock music. The band members are different people and enjoy different m

usic styles. They come together and contribute t亚博体育注册419论坛品茶微信o the band as one person. That’s the most interesting part of being in a band.”

Then with the birth of Modern Sky, one of the country’s biggest indie labels, which former rock singer-songwriter Shen Lihui

founded in 1997 in Beijing as a way to distribute both his own and his friends’ music, more and more indie band

s emerged in the country while developing the亚博体育注册419论坛品茶微信ir own unique styles. The punk-rock band New Pants, the pop-rock band

Queen Sea Big Shark and the heavy rock band Miserable Faith were among the most-watched bands then.
