Layabozi's inspiration comes from the snack which is both exotic (to us) and down home. From it we also take our name: Spicy duck necks.
Layabozi is a platform connecting the Chinese music scene to the world at-large. The music that's playing in Chinese speakers, at home and on the scene, is what we are talking about. We go where music lives and broadcast it to appreciative eyes and ears.
We also offer up-to-date information about ongoing events and interesting insights from the protagonists of the local music scene, with sharp interviews and comprehensive reviews of albums, gigs, and websites.
In the past we have sponsored diverse concerts in Shanghai and are looking to do more of the same in the future.
Spice Developer and Director of the Band: Mache Vera Dupuis
Big Duck and Jazzy Lord of Layabozi: Mike Brownell
The songs played on Layabozi are for analysis purposes only. We, the contributors, love - deeply - music and we work to support the artists we love by promoting and purchasing their work; it is our policy only to post what we own or what the artists/owners have authorized us to publish. Through this site, we're simply sharing music with others hoping they will also support these artists and appreciate the quality of their work. We encourage everyone to purchase music and concert tickets for the artists you feel deserve your money and energy. If you own the copyright to one of the songs posted on this website and would like it removed, please let us know we'll respond fast as a the wind. We do not keep an archive of our songs. And we do take obsessive care of our records, cassettes, cd's, dvd's, videos, books, autographs, photos and old tickets to concerts we loved.
Feel free to contact us if you are a band, label or distributor and think we'd be interested in your music. Same goes if you're playing a gig in either Shanghai, China, Asia, Gaia, or outer space and want us to come.
