After 4 long years since their last album, Taiwanese band, Power Station, released their new album Light <光> on March 29. Power Station will also be performing in Taiwan, as part of their “Don’t Forget the Origins, Moving On World Tour 2013” <动力火车 莫忘初衷 继续转动 巡回演唱会>.

Aboriginal rockers, Power Station may not have released an album for quite some time, but they have been busy. One of their projects includes their debut foray into film. Playing a pair of cold-blooded killers in Piano Trojan <钢琴木马>, they also sang the theme song, “Keeping Company” <奉陪>.

In late November 2009, the duo started their Moving On World Tour, travelling around China and Malaysia. Having chocked up more than 200 live shows, the singers are continuing their road show, with a much-anticipated stop in Taiwan on June 26, 2013 at the Taipei International Convention Center. Power Station promises a live performance which will lead the audience down 15 years of memory lane, belting out their classics such as “Relentless Love Letter” <无情的情书>, “Tomorrow of Tomorrow of Tomorrow” <明天的明天的明天>, “Walking along Jhonghsiao East Street 9 Times” <孝东路走九遍>, “Rainbow” <彩虹> and “Moving On” <继续转动>.

Empty Love Life

One of the title track in the album is “Elena” <艾琳娜> which in Mandarin sounds like “my lover ah”. This no doubt prompted the reporters at the press conference to inquire about 45-year-old You Chiu Hsing’s (尤秋兴) love life. He said jokingly, “I don’t have the energy to think about that. I’m too old to trod through this muddy water, and I’m too much of a “vegetable” anyway.”

When You Chiu Hsing heard about band member, Yan Chi Lin’s (尤秋兴) wife controlled his purse strings, You added laughingly, “And that’s really the reason why I’m still single!”

Tracklist for Light:

01. Light <光>
02. Honorable Role <光荣角色>
03. Don’t Forget the Origins <莫忘初衷>
04. Incomplete <残缺的完整>
05. Elena <艾琳娜>
06. Cherish <珍惜>
07. Keeping Company <奉陪>
08. Lonely Rogue <寂寞无赖>
09. Big World <世界之大>
10. Eastern Light <东方的光>

        Another great subsong is “Zhong Yu Ming Bai” which is the ending song for Xian Jian 1(Chinese Paladin 1). That is another hit song.

        yeung4life,
        Power Station was a very popular band in Taiwan in the 90s, the Taiwanese equivalent of Hong Kong’s Beyond.

        They were a very popular group who are vocally talented. At least they are actually talented instead of having fake and artificial looks with no talent which is what most of the singers of today consist of…
