The Unknown Rebels was early known as Amigo in 2007. The Unknown Rebels is a project of Do Dang Thuong and Pham Duy Thanh Phong combining electro/ experimental rock and animation/ stop motion video. Inspired by 65daysofstatic, Múm and some more, The Unknown Rebels is not limited by any kinds of genres but improved in many different independent styles.
The Unknown Rebels is an open project based on the spirit of independent creativeness and the usage of simple materials to create messages. "Small things can create big ideas"
The Unknown Rebels is not just a music band, Do Dang Thuong and Pham Duy Thanh Phong are not rockers (or some shit like that), they are just 2 people who have inspirations and indulgence in creating artworks combining the sight and the hearing (music and video are the main theme and main foundation) - we are the unknowns. With an idea of making something funny and using up the waste/ superfluous materials, we're trying to create a new imaginary world...
"LIFE IS A BOOK THAT YOU CAN WRITE YOUR OWN ENDING"
Hey man, nothing is impossible! We just have a bad-condition guitar, an almost-broken cable with a laptop to record the track and paper that can see around da house with some craft making. Then we have a short video clip. Forget about money problems. Haha.
*The Unknown Rebel - Tank Man, or the Unknown Rebel, is the nickname of an anonymous man who became internationally famous when he was videotaped and photographed during the protests at Beijing's Tiananmen Square on June 5, 1989. Several photographs were taken of the man, who stood in front of a column of Chinese Type 59 tanks, preventing their advance. One of the most widely reproduced versions of the photograph was taken by Jeff Widener of the Associated Press from the sixth floor of the Beijing Hotel, about half a mile (800 meters) away from the scene, through a 400-millimeter lens.
The Journey Unknown by The Unknown Rebels - not only a music video clip but it is being improved to become a series of experimental music and arts which will have a story behind. A long journey begins.

It was a school project. Thought it was a waste so we decided to remake it as a prequel for the unknown series. This clip is a prequel represents our spirit, our style and our personalities.
