Smol's album Yawaraka Flow is still available in some record stores,
I believe I've seen one in Underworld the other night.
As to the draw a smile, we don't even have a copy. And the
orginal multi-track files and master all died in a harddrive disaster,
I learnt to make backups from this...
Here's some little trivia about Draw a Smile that might be interesting to
There're actally three different versions of "Draw a Smile:"
The first one only released during our tour to Japan in the summer of 2005
and at 2 shows in Taiwan.
Actually the whole printing process was done while we were in Japan.
This is the original version containing really basic live tracks with only
a few overdubs. The arrangements of Smol's songs are totally different
from 2nd version. We only made about 50-80 copies of this version.
The second version was released on February 24th, 2006. We did a whole bunch of
new recordings on top of the original version, changed the arrangements, played
with the mixer. A much better vocal works were done for both Smol and
Green!Eyes songs as well. Honestly this version is like containing 8 brand
The strange part is this version was mastered in mono, I think it's a mistake
that I encountered while making the master. Only about 40 copies were sold.
The third version was later released through mail orders and at some shows,
and this was remastered back to stereo version. We even added a secret track to
the EP, making it actually a 9 songs EP. About 400-500 copies were sold.
Every copies of each version were strictly handmade, and most of the income
were donated to either the recovery of Indonesia Tsunami or 心路基金會 for
helping autistic children.
I painted the cover picture while working in 宜蘭 in 2005, and it's funny
how the painting ended up being sent to Orbis, the manager of the wall.
I didn't ask him about the painting until earlier this year, and he stated
he no longer knew where it is. This has became an amusing mystery of the
"Draw a Smile EP."
Smol is still my favorite Taiwanese band even so many years has been passed.
I still have a clear picture of the day I met their music.
I was stunned to know there were people play this kind of music in Taiwan.
We have so many good bands now here in the indie music scene, still I didn't
hear anything have such an unchangeable impact to my ears.
Smol along with Diamond Vehicles had mark my green days, while still in
high school I was too young to get the admission to see their lives at bars,
therefore I had to wait at the entrance to hear their music leaking out
through the doorway, it was still so beautiful to be a memory.
I think I lost my interest in making music after they were gone in 2006,
Green!Eyes therefore went into a quite long hiatus back then.
And till today I missed them not any less,
so much wish they were still here playing their new songs and I could secretly
wipe out my tears when the spotlights temporally ceased their power
Just like what you said "人生最美好真的不過如此 謝謝你們!"
I feel ashamed listening to it while knowing some best lives are still left
unheard and no longer to be heard. And I regret not saying this when there
still are chances to get touched.
Thank you for reminding me.
Best luck on finding your copy. I wish I had one to give you.
