about

Liu Kun, born in Zhelaizhai county after the 1980s, firmly believes that he is the descendent of a Roman soldier, who was besieged with his army during a war in Zhelaizhai two thousand years ago. He often dreams of himself being a soldier, raising his sword on a running horse, breaking open a way through brambles and thorns, however, wakes up to find his arms painful and aching, realizes that all was nothing but a dream. Anyway, he isn’t bothered by the mysteries of his DNA at all, because he finds art more fascinating. As a little boy in a town, he was never too eager to show himself by dancing, singing and playing drums and guitars, despite the rough stage of that little shabby theater. There he would feel like being in a dream once the lights were on. Years later, he went to Lanzhou for further education, and that was a university. He soon became a sincere and dedicated lover to drama, joining the school drama troupe, writing plays and acting on stage, he was full of energy to lead his company to success. And quite out of expectancy, a feature program was made for this energetic young man by the local TV station. Anyway, he isn’t bothered by this issue at all. It is the parents who were worried: Will you study ,study, or study?

When graduation time drew near, he encountered a life-long buddy: Rock. Moved by his braveness, purity, and persistence, he followed this buddy onto the road of music, and realized that music is connected with soul. He established the band ‘Rust on the lip’ in 2003, which then got the present name, ‘Low Wormwood’, and became the lead singer. Every year he leads his band for a tour around China and has made several albums: <The absinthe>, <Low Wormwood>, <Upstream of Yellow River>, and <We can’t help kissing each other>. He plays football during part time, meets friends and makes plan for art exhibitions. Cooperated with the Barn Gallery in Lanzhou, he held a modern art exhibition called ‘Replacement’ in 2007, in which his works ‘Sound field in Lanzhou’ and ‘Talk’ were displayed, together with the works of Wang Dong, a young artist. He also planned an art exhibition of sound and devices in 2009.

Track Name: The Three Kingdoms
若是你在三国
你是周瑜或是诸葛
若是你在三国
谁的谋略你视为上策
若是你在三国
快意恩仇胸怀广阔
若是你在三国
你将天下如何分割

只是你在中国
在当今强大的中国
你的工具和你的谋略
远比三国要多
只是你的胸怀能否比得上诸葛
只是在当今中国
你怎么能将天下分割


Translation:


If you were in the Three Kingdoms
You would be Zhou Yu or Zhuge Liang
If you were in the Three Kingdoms
Whose strategy would you regard as the best one?
If you were in the Three Kingdoms
You should be broad-minded to face satisfaction, grace and enmity
If you were in the Three Kingdoms
How would you distribute the state-power?

But when you are in China
The present powerful China
Your instruments and strategies
Far surpass those you had in the Three Kingdoms
The only thing is your lack of broadness to be like Zhuge
But when you are in China
How are you able to share the state-power?
Track Name: Don't Wake Her Up
如果你的爱人睡在晚风里放一块糖在她攥紧的手中
或者打开她爱听的音乐
声音划过指尖如果你的母亲睡在沙发上给她盖一条最柔软的毯子或者泡一杯热茶
放在一旁

不要叫醒他
他醒来之后会微笑
不要叫醒他
他醒来之后会微笑如果你的女儿在你怀里睡着了
帮她把头发别到耳后
轻轻的抱着她在晚风中摇晃
不要把她放回小床上
如果有人在舞台上睡着了
紧紧的搂着他的琴睡着了
请不要关掉灯光
也不要鼓掌
不要叫醒他
他醒来之后会微笑
不要叫醒他
他醒来之后会微笑


Tanslation:




If your lover falls asleep in the night breeze
Squeeze a candy into her clenched hand
Or turn on her favorite music
And let it run through her fingers

If your mother falls asleep on the couch
Cover the softest quilt for her
Or make a cup of hot tea
And put it beside her

Don’t wake her up
She will smile when she’s awake
Don’t wake her up
She will smile when she’s awake

If your daughter falls asleep in your arms
Pin her hair behind the ears
Hold her gently and sway in the night breeze
Don’t get her back into the cot

If someone falls asleep on the stage
Holding her guitar tightly
Please don’t turn off the light
Nor applaud

Don't wake her up
She will smile when she’s awake
Don’t wake her up
She will smile when she’s awake
