Punx - 吉他手
因從小住過很多不同國家，Punx 可以說是個「全球性」的吉他手。他最早在新加坡住了兩年，在印尼住了十年，後來在美國住過兩年，也在澳洲住了十六年。最後，Punx 來到台灣，然後一直住到現在。如果硬要給他一個國籍的話，我們應該可以說他是個澳洲籍的台灣人吧！
有一天，Punx 看MTV音樂頻道節目時就看到 『毒藥樂團』「Poison」的主奏吉他手C.C. Deville 就與吉他接下了不解之緣. Punx 在MV裡所聽到的大聲搖滾樂以及他所看的rocker帥氣長頭髮、台上的煙火和正妹都讓他印象非常深刻。因為熱愛吉他，他學吉他學得很快。不到一年，Punx 就成為他當年所讀的高中大家公認最強的主奏吉他手。隔不到兩年，Punx 應多個樂團邀請到澳洲墨爾本的東區各地表演。當時，Punx 與他合作的幾個樂團一起創作歌曲歌並當了很長一段時間的錄音室吉他師。很不幸的，Punx 後來不得不把他的吉他和音樂器材賣掉，也就暫時放棄他的音樂夢。
搬到台灣後, Punx 買了一把新的吉他又踏上了吉他之路。從此之後，Punx 與全台各地的很多音樂家一起表演，也自己組了幾個樂團，像是19 Minutes 和Loaded。這兩個團在台北市的 Farmhouse、Velvet Underground、The Pig、New York New York、The Shannon、La Mer 以及 Bliss等地表演過。
Punx Barry Jen - guitar
Punx is a guitarist from “Everywhere”. He grew up in various places such as Singapore (2 years), Indonesia (10 years), USA (2 years) and Australia (16 years). Finally, he came to Taiwan where he has been ever since. Officially, he is Australian Taiwanese.
He started playing guitar after seeing C.C. Deville (guitarist of Poison) on MTV. The big hair, loud rock, pyrotechnics and nice ladies in the music videos left a deep impression on him. He learned quickly and in 1 year became known as the best guitarist in high school. Within 2 years, he was being asked to play in various bands in the Eastern Melbourne suburbs (Australia). During this time, he co-wrote songs which were later recorded by the various bands he was part of, and also did some session recording work. Unfortunately, he had to sell his music equipment and give up playing a couple of years later.
After moving to Taiwan, he bought a guitar and started playing again. Since then, he has played with musicians around Taiwan and formed a few bands such as “19 Minutes” and “Loaded” where they played in local venues like Farmhouse, Velvet Underground, The Pig, New York New York, The Shannon, La Mer and Bliss.
