島嶼行動:滅火器美西巡迴

Island Awakening - Fire EX U.S. West Coast Tour

滅火器 Fire EX-島嶼天光 Island Sunrise

The Sunflower Movement continues loud and proud. Come join 滅火器 Fire EX., Dream Rush, and Silent Wave for a night of freedom rock.

Fire EX, Taiwan's top punk band!
One of the music festivals' most frequently invited bands!

Fire Extinguisher is a pop punk band from Kaohsiung. They sing with a lot of energy, enthusiasm, and dreams! The band's motto is "never forget to feel", an attitude that keeps them going even when everything seems totally SNAFU! After eight years' preparation, Fire Ex released their debut album, Let's Go, in June, 2007. This album plumbs the states of mind that come from having no alternative but to face reality no matter what it brings.

The band members used to be high-school classmates from Kaohsiung with similar musical tastes, and their music draws inspiration from real life and real music. Their lives have been no different from other ordinary people. They have dreams and enthusiasm, frustration and anger, love and hurt, pain and joy. The vocalist, Sam, once summed up their attitude in a show at The Wall, Taipei’s premiere live house: "We are not famous. But we love music and our passion for music will never end!" Nothing but genuine passion and total satisfaction at just banging out music. Their music inspires infinite enthusiasm, or even rowdiness and passion for being in the moment.

Now, at the ripe age of 30, the band members growing maturity shows in the musical arrangements and structure of their new album. A little taste of post-rock adds vividness to their explosive sound. It is surprising to see a punk band present post-rock arrangements with abundant exuberance, complicated guitars riffs, and rich melodies. But their core remains punk, and punk is not just an attitude but a way of taking life as it comes, and hitting back.

Fire Ex will never give up touching people through music with their passion and enthusiasm, no matter how cruel the world becomes or how old they get. This should be the tacit minimal consensus among all Taiwanese regardless of gender or age. Let’s Go! We are Fire Extinguisher!


創作理念
318學運喚醒了台灣人
我們要守護的價值 家的意義 民主的珍貴

行政院鎮壓的那個夜晚
大正與學運總指揮林飛帆短暫交談
希望能夠用音樂凝聚激勵議場內外的參與群眾
大正問道有什麼要特別的注意的地方嗎
林飛帆笑笑地說 溫柔吧

溫柔的力量持久且堅韌
溫柔也能抵抗
大正跟滅火器用48小時完成了詞曲創作編曲錄音
與北藝大同學一起到立法院收音
完成這首與學運幹部及群眾共同演唱的島嶼天光

獻給所有堅定不移的意志與靈魂
獻給所有非常疲憊憂心國家前途但永不放棄的人
一起守候這個島嶼的天光來臨

歌詞
作詞:楊大正 作曲:楊大正/阿雞
親愛的媽媽/請你毋通擔心我
原諒我/行袂開跤我欲去對抗袂當原諒的人
歹勢啦/愛人啊
袂當陪你去看電影
原諒我/行袂開跤
我欲去對抗欺負咱的人

天色漸漸光
遮有一陣人
為了守護咱的夢
成做更加勇敢的人
天色漸漸光
已經不再驚惶
現在就是彼一工
換阮做守護恁的人

已經袂記 / 是第幾工 / 請毋通煩惱我
因為阮知道 / 無行過寒冬 / 袂有花開的一工
天色漸漸光
天色漸漸光
已經是更加勇敢的人

天色漸漸光
咱就大聲來唱這首歌
一直到希望的光線
照光島嶼每一个人
天色漸漸光
咱就大聲來唱著歌
日頭一(足百)上山
就會使轉去啦

天色漸漸光
咱就大聲來唱這首歌
一直到希望的光線
照光島嶼每一个人
天色漸漸光
咱就大聲來唱著歌
日頭一(足百)上山
就會使轉去啦

現在是彼一工
勇敢的台灣人
