Amature Amplifier(아마츄어증폭기) (blog : http://www.atu4tal.com) (homepage : http://amatureamp.wo.to/home.html) (myspace : http://www.myspace.com/amatureamplifier) This one man band from South Korea was so unique for the weird gig. Members are a classic guitar and a wig-haired man whose name is "Vad Hahn(한 받)" So, exactly speaking, this is one man and one guitar band. Vad is born 1974, in Daegu Metropolitan City, which is located in south of South Korea. As a young man, his dream was to be a filmmaker. But his short video-films were not quiet funny or interesting. So he stopped shooting video-films then he started stroking someone's guitar with his heart when he was out of his house. After graduation from local university, he moved to Seoul. Then he found temporary job and started live shows in "Club BBang(클럽 빵)" 4.20.2003. Band's live shows were held more than 350 and shows were famous for something weird gig in South Korea. (Vad is also member of Post-Punk band "Stretching Journey(스트레칭져니)" and managing several project bands, Nune-Piro(눈의피로), Yamagata Tweakster(야마가타 트윅스터), Mapo Sonyeon Sonyeo Chorus(마포소년소녀합창단) etc) In the gig, Vad passionately strokes his classic guitar and sings songs with his own lyrics. Lyrics are simple, short and captured instantly from everyday life. Guitar storking makes stronger rhythm than normal drumming. So, in the album, there's no percusion sounds at all.(2 exceptions are in Sonyeon-Heart) When Vad sings, he often repeat his short phrase. The voice is so attractive cause his vocal style is so naive. It feels like all gigs by this band are some kind of performance art cause the golden wig on his head and costumes are many colorful clothes following the homeless man fashion style. Specially on performing show, there's theatricality in his gesture.

Golden wig means "another Kurt Cobain". Vad said that in other interview. The music is something melodical but simple. Maybe brit-pop or punk music is main music genre influenced. The band also famous for the lo-fi attitude. So, sounds and voices are not so delicate. Sometimes it sounds like hardcore punk or psychedelic folk. Someone who watched his gig wrote, "He kind of rocked Jandek's style of music where the voice was used as an instrument, but the songs were very similar to Wesley Willis in that of the 10 or so songs played, they bulk of them used one of three chord progressions." Of course, the band influenced by "Korean Folk(가요)" music. Anyway, how about calling his music as "21th Century Korean Post-folk"? Band released 4 main albums like below, EP, "2/9/Y/O/M/C"(2002.10), "GeukJwaPyo"(2004.2), "Sonyeon-Heart(2006.12) and "Soo Sung Land(2009.8).
