Silhouettes of protest, like gun smoke, like a heap of stinking motor oil leaking from a broken-down car that has been left burning on the long road called “time” since the post-Martial Law whirlwind of the 1980s and in the years that followed.

There are striking protagonists and eye-catching scenery along this long road. For instance, the (Wild Lily) Student Movement activists have a proclivity for resorting to “back in the day” when they recount the sense of purity, idealism, divergence, and change since the 1990s, as though they were chatting about a wild lily that had a specific lifespan whose withering was inevitable and finding solace in the self-aggrandizing “after all I was once youthful” while accepting its inevitable demise. But beyond the nurturing imagery of a botanical gardener, the cacophony among non-intellectuals was in reality a vociferous fervour, an unbridled frenzy, and a jagged peril that was pervaded through society. Beyond the outwardly solemn and ceremonious “localization,”“”(representative) democratization” and various bourgeois/ modern/urbane grand narratives are merely incidental miscellany, including the neglected and forgotten incidences such as the “Bumble Bees Brigade” who swarmed with spray paint and vandalized, or “Street Vigilantes” who advocate violence as the only means to combat violence, and the airwaves of unregulated “pirate radio stations,” etc.

In the textual writing of selective recall and retelling, this grotesque, uncanny, frenetic disarray is usually either marginalized and trivialized as a type of “necessary evil” in a temporarily painful stage of political transformation; or else is written by proxy in a romanticized tone with the rose-tinted gaze of nostalgia. The visage of the transient voiceless masses of the past remains obscured.

1989年,當水晶唱片發行《抓狂歌》時,我還是小六生。記得某日家父 在夜市買了一卷封面很像,但叫做《抓狂歌二》的神祕卡帶。並選在某 日全家開車出遊之際用車內音響首次播放。 模糊的記憶裡,那是一首名叫〈French Kiss〉 ...

濁水溪公社(1998-)是台灣1990年代的前衛搖滾樂團,創作直指社會議題,反映底層群眾心聲,以直率的歌詞與激烈的表演為名。濁水溪公社原由一群台大學生成立,他們積極推廣讀書會與政治運動,因此受到校方關注。當時的表演以視覺暴動為原則,刺激保守的校園環境。「那時都在搞社運,沒在念書。說我們是樂團,其實更像『犯罪集團』。」團員蔡海恩說。 在地實驗 ...
