Shanghai Sound Board

Sound Board, originally uploaded by StrudelMonkey.

Shanghai's music scene leaves a lot to be desired. Admittedly, there are a few great jazz clubs in town, but my hunger for great, live indie-rock has gone unfed during my two years here. Every few months the authorities will 'allow' a big-name music act to play a show here, though its usually nothing to get excited about. And then Bjork comes to town and screams about a certain province in west China, which pretty much guarantees that we won't get any music-of-interest any time soon.

A friend of mine in town just got turned on to a internet radio station that streams music from local bands. He passed on one of the bands he came across that actually sounded ... good. They are from Beijing but were coming to Shanghai to launch their first album, so we (and our wives) agreed to meet for the show.

A bill of five bands took part in the show at Zhijiang Dream Factory, a medium-sized club in the Jing An district. Not all the bands 'did it' for me, but it was great to take in a live show for the first time in a while. Our newly-found band, 'Gar', came on last, following sets by local Shanghai groups and got a mixed reception from the Shanghai crowd as they ripped through a loud set. Its been a while since I went to bed with ringing in my ears...

[b] A History of Mattresses and Mattress Furniture [/b]Modern mattress furniture came about after many years of hard work and man's need for comfort. What really is the focal point of mattress furniture? The answer lies in the question. The focal point of mattress furniture is of course, the mattress itself! Mattresses provide a soft surface for us to rest on and also provide a huge lot of comfort which man is constantly in search of.

Ancient Man's Contribution

What was the first piece of mattress furniture devised by man? Of course, the bed. The crude bed, with a mattress was invented in the Neolithic period, which was around the time between 8000- 6000 B.C. people decided that sleeping on the ground was way too uncomfortable and hence the bed was born and a crude mattress, fashioned from animal skin and leaves was used.

This concept was developed in Persia and later on, the Persians slept in beds, which had mattresses made of goatskins, filled with water to provide additional comfort. At about the same time, the ancient Egyptians started sleeping on palm boughs which they heaped in the corner areas of their houses.

A long time later, in about 200 B.C., aristocrats in ancient Rome started sleeping on mattresses which were made from bags of cloth and were stuffed with wool, reeds, hay etc. So finally, something resembling the mattress used in modern mattress furniture was born.

During the Renaissance age, mattresses were made from feathers and pea shucks and were covered with rich fabric like brocade, velvet or even silk. Modern beds were born later, with mattresses being piled onto a bed skeleton made from timber, with additional support from latticework made of ropes or even leather. In the 18th century, the wealthy had a variety of mattress furniture - couches, divans, beds, little pedestals.

Recent Developments

The large mattresses which were made for the bed were then made into a variety of different sizes and shapes for different kinds of furniture. In the late 19th century, in order to make mattresses less lumpy, the box spring was invented. This provided additional comfort and support to people. In the 20th century, the mattress and corresponding mattress furniture went from strength to strength.

Inner spring mattresses and upholstered furniture were all the rage in the early 1930s. Encased coil spring mattresses were also used. Then came the foam rubber mattresses, which were widely purchased to make pillows and other mattress furniture. Thereafter came our version of the Persian beds - the waterbed. It started being used widely and was developed so that the bed was adjustable.
