Beijing punk band Recycle has been active for almost five years. The band has just released their first album. The launch show was held at Beijing’s 13 Club on April 21, 2006. Recycle was so kind that they donated （捐献）all the money they earned at the launch show to an old lady who took care of hundreds of unwanted animals.
Pop punk band Recycle was founded in Beijing in 2001 and frequently gave their performances at local bars. In September 2003 they played in the Summer Beach Rock Music Festival in Qingdao. The show was recorded by Firerecord, and later released in Canada and the US. In December 2004-March 2005 they went on tours in the country, with 30 shows in 18 cities. Their songs Our World （《我们的世界》） and Discovery （《发现》） are selected for the collection Xing Huo Liao Yuan 2 （《星火燎原2》）, produced under the Scream Records label and released the same year. In their music they publicize the animal protection, peace, freedom and equality and they do so to better what is around themselves.
Now a brief introduction to its three members:
Vocals / bass （主唱及贝斯手）: Wang Yan
Born in a military family, Wang Yan was fed up with a boring life limited by all kinds of rules. He started listening to rock music as early as in elementary school and dreamed of starting his own band.
Vocals / guitar: Guo Feng
After an overnight conversation with the other two members, Guo Feng decided he had to join this Recycle. He brought new ideas to the band, and led it to become one of the pioneer pop punk bands in China.
Drums: Liu Zhong
Formerly a part-time worker at KFC, he disliked the job so much that he found himself devoting all his time into the band just one year later. Now he has become a very diligent guy known for his outstanding drumming skills.
