THE BOYS: BEIJING NIGHTS!
THE BOYS have issued video footage shot on their momentous trip to China a year ago.
Promo clips of ‘I’m A Believer’ and ‘Brickfield Nights’ (above), professionally shot in Beijing by Jonathan Alpart and Will Griffin, have surfaced on YouTube. The clips were recorded for Chinese video show Sound Stage.
The band had originally travelled to China for a nine-date tour, only to find the dates cancelled at the behest of the Chinese Ministry of Culture for reasons of “crowd control and security issues”, with letters sent to venues threatening immediate closure should the band perform.
However, this didn’t stop them squeezing in three secret underground gigs, resulting in an hour-long documentary and the album Undercover – Live In China. Released through Action Records, it’s available from The Boys’ store, along with their current studio album Punk Rock Menopause.
