Busan, Korea’s The Southbay are poised to impress the world with their ska/punk blend. Always crowd favorites, The Southbay have recently played Seoul’s Asian Beat Festival and Busan’s International Rock Festival. Their next EP is due via Catlick Records in the early Fall of 2010.
“What first comes to mind when you think of Punk? Loud, stripped down, high energy songs, a ‘f%$* you’ attitude, high emotion and raw energy? Maybe the word conjures images of tattoos, leather, insane hair, studded belts, and giant safety pins? Well, Busan’s own, ‘The Southbay’, spew these standard qualifications of punk and take it to another level.” -- The Southbay: Pure Punkadelic, J. Lipsky, Busan Haps Magazine.
