From Music-China Wiki
LAVA|OX|SEA (previously The Los) is the evolving species of former bands "DCTV","Baboon","Dancing Television","Dirty" and "Coffee Sugar" in Hefei. Although coming from different (even conflicting) music backgrounds, the 4 members dramatically shared some common aesthetic interests in music and live styles, so they decided to fuck each other finally in 2006.
In May 2007, The Los published their first EP Media Murdered the Young under two indie labels in China (Lie Records and Miniless Recordings). In June they performed during the Dino Beach Rock Festival.

October 18th, they performed in Maanshan during the 馬鞍山第二届揺滾節 event. December 12th, they performed in the Yuyintang in Shanghai.
