John Tian Qi Wardle and Charlie Tian Yi Wardle come from a musical family. Or yes, that's a grotesque understatement. Their father is none other than Jah Wobble, who worked with Brian Eno and Björk, among others. Their mother, on the other hand, is one of the world's best guzheng players and is from Ghangzhou, China.
With such parents, expectations are high for the two brothers. They live up to that with their band Tian Qiyi, originally intended as an experimental vehicle for their innovative style. Nevertheless, success was not long in coming: their latest album 'Red Mist' converts that enormous potential of musical influences - whether or not they were born with it - into a mix of jazz, psychedelics with eastern influences and other goodies. .
