More Chinese Punks

I posted about Chinese Punk Rock a while ago. Continuing the theme, here's a link to an NPR report on the Beijing Scene, "home to rock 'n' roll rebels, subversive artists and a livelier alternative cultural scene than in any other Chinese city." Government censorship limits what punks and artists can say, but according to NPR, Beijing is the Seattle of China. As for the censors, the article reports, "The government allows these artists to create as long as their influence is limited to the periphery of the cultural world" - whatever that means.
