1 Biography or not[편집]
PiPi Band are ParkHyeonJun, GangGiYeong and LeeYunJeong. They were inspired by british modern rock & neo-punk, and the funny lyrics & funky rhythm made them a symbol of youth. They are basically independant artist. In their next album they absorbed SonicYouth style. But people rejected their 2nd, < BulGaNeungHan JakJeon; Mission Impossible > . Their popular but anti-pop attitude counldn't be understood by common people so disbanded. GangGiYeong nicknamed DalPaRan and turned his music style techno and released the 1st solo < WhiPaRam Byeol; Whistle Star > as the name DJ DalPaRan. ParkHyeonJun participated the indie experimental band 99. LeeYunJeong released techno album < JinHwa; Evolution > but failed. --DisTort, 1999
They officially quit as a group 20 days after the release of their second album. That's right. Except for a "remake" album to be released very shorted out of their initial contract, they will not do any public activity as "pipiband."
Well, well. They've changed their lead singer. They've changed their name. But they are still "Pipi". They are now called Pipi Long Stocking, and Goguma (aka. Kwon, ByeongJun) came in place of Lee, YunJeong. Now Kang, GiYoung calls himself DalPaRan. But their music is still punk-ish. --HongCho, 1997-03-31
2 MunHwaHyeokMyeong(1995); Cultural Revolution; 文化革命 [편집]
★★★★★ [Song Studio; Digital Media Records] Post Punk, British Modern Rock, Female Vocal, Simple Mind
This will give you a somewhat different flavor. One of my friends was listening to it, and I thought it would be fun to put it here. The group consists of two guys and a very "energetic" girl. I think one of the guys previous played guitar in the band H2O. Well, that's all I know about the band.
Their album title, MunHwaHyeokMyeong (which means a cultural revolution), seems to be too grandiose for the actual contents. I would say it is "amusing", if anything. Some of the songs, indivually, have good vibes, but as a whole, the album is desperately in need of a character.
If you feel like it, do listen to DdalGi, Supermarket, Papillon, DdaeRoNeun GeuDaeGa, and AnNyeongHaSeYo. I don't know why, but whenever I listen to Supermarket, I think of the Hong Kong flick called JungGyeongSamLim / Chung King Express. --HongCho, 1997-03-31

3 One Way Ticket(1997) [편집]
★★★★ [Dong-A] Post Punk, British Modern Rock, Simple Mind
As you know after withdrawing LeeYunJeong, PiPi Band renamed PiPi Long Stocking with new member GoGuMa(KwonByeongJun). Their style is still unique and the reckless experiments disappeared. The single [Play:PiPi3BaBoBeoSeu.mp3 BaBoBeoSeu; Foolish Bus] is funny but moderate song. [Play:PiPi3GeoBukI.mp3 GeoBukI; Tortoise] contains the story rabbit and tortoise but distorted. I think most brilliant song is [Play:PiPi3SaGeon.mp3 SaGeon; Accident], monotoneous rhythm repeated. Anyway they disbanded DalPaRan(GangGiYeong) released techno album. GoGuMa manage the independant production GangAJi. Park HyunJoon withdraw the band 99. --DisTort, 1999
This is their new album. The singer changed: one who calls himself GoGuMa (sweet potato). They got into some trouble in a live broadcast because one raised his middle finger to the camera, and another spit water on (also) the camera. Well.
I like some of the songs in the album. Some are very silly and some sounds like an experiment of making "sound." (e.g., GyeDan). I like it better than the second one, but still nothing can beat the debut album.
Oh, the last but not the least. (I don't think they did it on purpose, but) on their album cover they've written "3th." Somebody definitely didn't check his spelling. --HongCho, 1997-03-31
