The influences that the band have sought to merge cover dub, enka, dance-hall, fuzz rock, jobim: the resulting compositions are highly melodic, and lyrically drawing on the bands existence in the Hong Kong demi-monde, with tales of hope and sleaze.

Biography

Logo was formed out of the embers of a decaying disco cover band, whose psychotic versions of dance crowd favourites, whilst striking a chord with the city’s flotsam and jetsam, failed to gain any mass acceptance.

Guitarist Chris,drummer James Woolf and bass enigma Yan Yan Pang retired to James’s art studio in Sheung Wan, where amongst artworks and props from forgotten parties they started to sculpt the logo sound.

The band has gigged extensively in Japan, China and Hong Kong and appeared at the 2011 Springscream Festival in Taiwan and the Clockenflap Festival in December 2011 alongside Bombay Bicycle Club, the Cribs and Santigold
