"Can Cannot Also Can", is a maturation into musical arena from the 'Anyhow Blues Project' which began within performance art context and expresses a renewed interest in popular folk music genre as Lee Wen sings his self-composed songs as a vehicle to confront personal conflicts living in our time. With Zai Kuning leading a stripped down trio outfit including Reef on bass and Hafiz Bastard on drums, the 'Anyhow Blues Project' will rock anew the folk dimension of Lee Wen's earlier acoustic attempts. Join them to resurrect dead art!
With the “Anyhow Blues Project”, Lee returns to his earliest forays of poetry and singing. Besides the other influences, it was through poetry reading and jamming with Zai Kuning at The Artists Village that started him on the road to performance art and other experimental practices. After performing solo in various performance art gigs since September 2010, Lee teams up with multi-disciplinary artist Zai Kuning the guitar virtuoso. Zai will be leading a stripped down trio outfit including Reef on bass and Hafiz Bastard on drums. Together with the 'Anyhow Blues Project', they will rock anew the folk dimension of Lee Wen's earlier solo acoustic attempts. Join them for a concert closer to your roots and help resurrect dead art!

“That was that and this is this. Solo, or with a band, Wen is now ready, steady, hard as any rock, flows as any Tao, the watercourse way of old mother of all anarchy today. Wen is ready cause he knows where he comes from, he sees where we're heading, and he's singing out loud, clear, warnings and prayers and he knows he faces dangers and he is not in fear but in oh so much pain but he will not cry however painful, because he is angry with sadness but he laughs because he knows he fights losing battle but he is ready to go in fighting, even dying cause it would be with honour, dignity and integrity to fight with songs of poetry than to kill with guns and bombs, the life so sacred and so dear, it is clear, for Wen to fly again with songs in streams of Anyhow Blues...”
