(See also 寂寞.夏.日) This quartet, led by singer and primary songwriter Deng Pei, is a chinese indie rock band. Judging by the chinese reception to their critically acclaimed debut EP for Tag Team Records, and their sold out live shows, LCD are creating quite a fuss in their native land. The band's 2007 debut long-player Sorrow is a heady blend of lap top bells and whistles, a staggering collision of minimalist guitar beauty and thunderous rock hooks with a soothing voice cooing Mandarin poetry - all mixed with traditional chinese musical influences.

Del Amitri are a Pop-rock guitar band, formed in Glasgow, Scotland in 1980. They came together at school as teenagers when Justin Currie (bass and vocals), James Scobbie (guitar and vocals) and Donald Bentley (guitar) formed a band in reaction against the rest of the 'rockers' in the school. The name was chosen deliberately because it didn't mean anything but sounded a bit like someone's name - early Del Amitri did not want to be classified and their existence was kept secret from the rest of the school.
