The End for Music Duo Longkuan Jiuduan
2005-7-6 9:30:27      CRIENGLISH.com
These are sad times for fans of the Chinese music duo Longkuan Jiuduan. The duo has been dropped by their record company Jingwen Records.

This sudden decision is rumored to be connected to offensive comments made by singer Jiu Duan in March at the 5th Pepsi Music Awards Ceremony in Beijing.

He angered the award organizers and his record company by saying the judges of rock music awards aren't professional rock musicians.

After the ceremony, the record company said the duo would be taking some time off to escape the tremendous pressure they are under.

However, the singers were not informed of this "temporary retirement" until later, when the record company said they were sacking them altogether.

The band shot to fame in 2004 with their electronic album "I Like Tricky Music." Long is responsible for composition and vocals while Jiu is the guitar player and producer.
