《奔波儿灞与灞波儿奔在旧天堂》是去年底我与一位神秘而又怪诞的音乐家的旧天堂书店现场录音。在这里你听不到那疯狂的萨克斯了,都是些附有开拓性的民族乐器新语境,有些怪异但它是好听的,完全是另一个美好的频道。
—— 老丹

这是一场很棒的即兴演出,但是显然他们并不是很满足于此。他们甚至替换了观众的掌声,拼贴时剪掉了许多大家都认为“好听”的瞬间。所以我认为,他俩创造了一个美妙的现场,又在出版时伪造了它,并且恶搞了我报幕时磁性的男声,给这张专辑留下了意义深远的坏名声。
—— 阿飞

The collaboration between flutist/saxophonist Lao Dan and multi-instrumentalist Li Daiguo began in 2018. The duo named themselves “Benbo’erba & Babo’erben” (奔波儿灞与灞波儿奔), after two minions from the classic Chinese novel Journey to the West. Delivering whimsical, improvisation-based melodies woven around the backbone of Li Daiguo’s quirky pipa and Lao Dan’s spiritual flute, Benbo’erba & Babo’erben take their listeners to a grotesque fairy world which presents a radical but light-hearted re-interpretation of traditional Chinese music. In 2019, the duo released their debut on cassette titled Benbo’erba & Babo’erben at the Old Heaven, a remixed live recording of their performance at the Old Heaven bookstore in December 2018. In this album, tribute is paid to Fei, owner of the Old Heaven bookstore and pivotal figure of the Chinese avant-garde scene, whose magnetic voice and demonic laughter can be heard at the very beginning of side A.
