Have I ever mentioned how much I love our messageboard? It seriously is the best – if I’m ever feeling blue all I have to do is take a look at you then I’m not feeling so blue…really. The best part about the board now is that I love it when all the HK hardcore/punk bands come together to attack some moron who leaves an idiotic message like, “you suck”. I love it. The show last night was pretty cool – check out our SHOW REVIEWS section for a quick review…PEACE OUT TO YO MOMMA.

w/ Sanskrit, King Ly Chee, FatJob, Pullover and Arcadia
Hey, this was actually a pretty cool show even though we played SUPER sloppy. I think this was the first show in a long time where we made a million mistakes…its obviously time that we start practicing again. We haven’t actually PRACTICED in over a month because we’ve been on tour and almost every weekend we’ve had a show, which has been our practice.
The Jazz Club is a pretty strange place to play a show because there are too many tables in the way. The tables make it hard for people to stand up and get into the music. So everyone ends up just sitting and staring at your ugly face while you’re screaming your head off.
It was fun – Arcadia is a great band so check them out every time they play! Sanskrit was amazing tonight too and so was FatJob – the singer Fai is really good at singing with brand new lyrics in his hands! Pullover was pretty cool but not really my style of music.
FatJob will be playing at the Jazz Club again on the 18th and we will be playing there again on the 25th…
The best part of the show is we got to meet another fan of hardcore/metal music who is in Hong Kong attending the University of Science and Technology out in Sai Kung…that’s the best part about playing this style of music. There aren’t that many people who appreciate it, but those who do are real fans and automatically become friends.
Show w/ Compuphonic Yellow, Error in MInd, Saturday and King Ly Chee
This was another daytime university show and was held from 1pm to 2pm outdoors. A lot of people turned up to watch this so that was kind of cool. We played with 2 bands that I had never seen Error in Mind and Saturday and they both seemed pretty cool. Compuphonic Yellow was amazing yesterday – it really wasn’t them because the real members of Compuphonic Yellow couldn’t make it besides Rogier so Alex filled in on the noise duties. It was great – I don’t think anyone understood what was going on.
We went on and I think all the amps were destroyed by the time we played. It was alright though…as you can read from our NEWS section – we got to meet two kids who love hardcore music and who are visiting Hong Kong from NYC. It was cool meeting those kids and they’ll be out at the Jazz Club on Monday night to watch the show with King Ly Chee, FatJob, Sanskrit and others…I love getting to meet new people – Hong Kong is so small that we never really get to meet new people because we know everybody. But yesterday was a special case…
w/ Mazer, JETHouse, Tai Tau Fat, Lam Kei and many others…
This was probably one of the most beautiful shows we’ve played in a long time simply for the reason that it was completely organized by a mere 18 year old female. This wasn’t just a small basement show or a show in a bar which is easy to organize. She organized this show in a hall in Tsuen Wan and got the Leisure and Cultural Services Department of the Hong Kong Government to sponsor the entire event! The venue she used held up to 300 people and the show was sold out…that is absolutely incredible!
It was like a dream come true to see someone at her age getting up and doing something for Hong Kong’s music community and we hope that it inspires many more younger people to get involved. We hope it gives many more younger people the drive, power and initiative to stop being lazy and start getting involved with something in their lives. Whether its music or anything else, we hope the younger minds of Hong Kong feel that they truly can make a difference in Hong Kong just by getting involved with something…
Thanks Irene for setting up an amazing show and we hope you continue to do what you’re doing for all of us. There were some problems with security at the venue but it wasn’t your fault so don’t worry!!! You did a terrific job at the show and everyone enjoyed it!!!
