History

taken from Dou Wei:

In the year 2001, Dou Wei has formed another band called "Not For Sure" 不一定 (Bu Yi Ding). It is more or less a one shot jamming band, no regular member, no regular music direction, no regular schedule, just a few veterans who share the same musical taste get together and jam at will. The original members include: Wen Zhiyong (trumpet), Chen Xiaohu (bass), Dou Wei (drums), Deng Ouge (guitar), Shan Xiao Fan, Zhang Jian (keyboards), Chen Jin, Liu Xiaosong, Ma Pei, Ou Yang. They recorded a 2CD live album "One Stone, Two Birds" at Club Green in Beijing on June, 2001. It's an improvisational jazz-lounge recording. Every piece of instrument, including Dou Wei's voice, has it's own independent space to express itself. In the leaping notes, you could almost sense the unique loneliness, distance and cynicalness of being in a city. Midnight would be a good time to listen to this music, you can keep on doing your stuff, and the music would be a great background. Maybe you'll be distracted by it from time to time. When the veil of the evening falls, when the city calms down from the daytime bustle, or in a dusky bar - just let your body sway with the Not Sure Yet and your mood. (m.z.) "One Stone, Two Birds" was officially released through www.joyo.com on April 15th, 2003.
