On march of 2001, the band was formed in a dankish basement in the north of Beijing city. After 3 years,the four lazy dizzy guys got their debut album released, called "Drunk is Beautiful". Then Joyside had their first tour around China. The singer Shang Huanhuan called it a "rock'n'roll nightmare". The tour was amazing, was full of passion and chaos, fuddle and shout. All the videos were recorded by an American director Kevin Fritz who was on the whole tour with the band and later made those became a wonderful documentary about Joyside--"Wasted Orient".
