Fringe Club

w/ King Ly Chee, FatJob, Kick Oaf, Very Ape, Love Motel and one other band…

We’ve been looking forward to this show for some time. The last show we played in Hong Kong was the Lingnam College show and because of the time of the show – we were only allowed to play 2 songs. Anyway, we knew we would have only one show in March so we were pretty happy to save our energy and to go crazy that night…

Finally, the night had arrived…we had been practicing with Ming on a brand new song called “Lik Kit” (chinese name which means something like no energy) and it was beginning to sound really good while we were practicing. We actually finished the song only a few days before the show and so we were obviously nervous.

We finally arrived at Fringe around 7:30 and we found out the show was already sold out. I thought this was strange because inside their was A LOT OF ROOM for more people. But the people inside were all sitting down…if they all stood up then everybody who weren’t allowed to come inside the show could come inside. A lot of our friends could not come to watch the show to support the other bands. Anyway…next time I guess.

The best part about playing in this venue was the atmosphere. The room was dark and the walls are all black – the lighting is minimal and which added a great effect on the bands playing. The first band to play was Love Motel – a very brit/pop style band who sounded great tonight. Then I had to leave to see how my friends could come to watch the show but it was no use…they could not come inside. I came back to watch Very Ape play their crazy grunge-rock songs – the bass player is incredible! After Very Ape played they told me that they were going to join us in Taiwan next week at the Spring Scream festival show! Cool! More Hong Kong bands are coming to promote Hong Kong in Taiwan!!! The next band to play was Kick Oaf and this was going to be their bass players (Bong) last show. For me I have seen their first 3 shows and I think this was their best performance so far. Next was FatJob and of course Fuck Fai forgot the lyrics to some of the songs! hahahaha…but they were still great and energetic. Shun had some problems with his guitar but that is because his own guitar has been broken for almost 2 weeks…when he gets it fixed he will rip as usual. We came on next and I was very nervous about playing “Lik Kit”…this was our first time to play the song LIVE. Everything seemed pretty good until we fucked up the end of the song “Sickened Eyes” but it didn’t matter because members of the audience were having fun dancing and feeling the music so even when we fucked up, the effect was good! Then we played “Lik Kit” next and personally, I think we played it pretty well!!!

Okay okay okay…it is now 3:31am…I am very tired so I will stop writing…we will go to Taiwan next week to play 2 shows so after we come back I’ll post the show reviews…bye bye…I’d like to say a BIG THANK YOU to Chinese University for inviting us again to play! THANKS!

Fracture fanzine!

In one week we will have our first show in over one month in Hong Kong! So try to come to that show and have a good time with us and the other bands playing: FatJob, Kick Oaf, Very Ape, Love Motel and one more band…it should be a good show. For more information go to our UPCOMING SHOWS section.

ALSO: A friend from the UK sent me a magazine called Fracture (which is the most famous punk rock/hardcore magazine in the UK) and they reviewed the King Ly Chee CD! Its a great review. This is the review we got:

“I think, though I might be wrong (as I often am), that this is the first record by a Hong Kong band I’ve ever reviewed…or are they a Chinese band? No, I think you still say they’re from Hong Kong. But geographical nuances aside, I digress from the emotional hardcore that KING LY CHEE play. It’s a great mix of screamed and shouted hardcore and jangly parts with sung or spoken lyrics. These guys can be just a sweetly poppy as they can be manically thrashing. They also blend a fair amount of political tendencies in their lyrics and song explanations, particularly based around everyday life in Hong Kong which makes for interesting reading from a different perspective. Oh in case you were wondering, they do sing in English, but Chinese translations are provided. I get the idea in listening to the anger and passion that was driven into this recording that these guys would put on an energetic live performance. But for now I’ll have to suffice with this cool album.” – FRACTURE MAGAZINE
