Introduction by the band
Hi everyone. We’re Bad Dream (坏梦想). Bad Dream, the band, was initially established in the spring of 2003. At that time the members included Pang Bo (Drums), Zhang Wei (Bass) and Yan Yue Yang (Vocals).
After a period of rehearsals, guitarist Guo Feng was invited to join the band in the fall of 2003. This is because the drummer Pang Bo left the band in 2004.
In April 2004, Liu Jia (Drums) and Li Ang (Guitar) entered the band. At that time the band’s style was pop-punk.
In fall 2004 Liu Jia, Li Ang and Zhang Wei left the band. After that the band stopped rehearsing for three months. At that time, Yan Yue Yang thought about ending the band, but ultimately he decided to go on. The band found new musicians in summer 2005. Bass: Lv Xin. Drums: Liu Lian Guitar: Zheng Shi Wei. After some rehearsing, the band successfully changed into a Punk-Metal band. In October 2005, the band was in a series of performances. On November 25 the band traveled to Shanghai to participate in China’s regionals for the Yamaha’s Asian Beat Band Competition. The band received high marks. After returning to Bejing, Bad Dream had the opportunity to perform with Food Drunk Gang (饭醉团伙). In February 2006 Liu Lian (Drums) quit the band, and the new drummer that arrived in midsummer helped the band mature and improve its sound. The average age of the band members is under 20, but the band has had at least 100 performances, and it has a wealth of experience. On stage, the band has a great stage presence and its sound is infectious. In 2006, Zheng Shi Wei quit the band due to personal reasons. But the band will continue to play.
