    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!

    Posted by Riz Hardcore on March 23, 2001

    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

  • Clear the Air website…

    Posted by Riz Hardcore on March 20, 2001

    Found another cool site!!! This site is called Clear the Air and of course it talks about Hong Kong’s air pollution problem. The site has PLENTY of great information of the damage done to our health by Hong Kong air. But it does not just talk about the negative things – it also tells you what YOU can do to help improve the situation. They have the Chief Executive Tung Chee Hwa’s e-mail address so you can send e-mails to his office regarding this problem. The website is English and Chinese…

    ON A SIDE NOTE: we will add a new style messageboard soon. The messageboard won’t be in the same format as messageboards in the past. You’ll see what we mean once we post the board on our site.  People like Gree, Dan and other people who used to look at our old messageboard please e-mail me as soon as you can so I can stay in touch with you guys until we put our new messageboard on our site.

  • MARCH 19, 2001

    Posted by Riz Hardcore on March 19, 2001

    While reading the Women’s Federation of Hong Kong webpage I noticed they said that they receive most of their funding from the Community Chest of Hong Kong (I’m sure everybody in Hong Kong knows who they are but here’s a quick introduction on the Community Chest as posted on their website: “Established in 1968, the Community Chest is an independent, non-profit making and non-government organisation to raise funds for social welfare agencies to address the needs of the many disadvantaged and less fortunate in the community of Hong Kong…香港公益金於一九六八年成立,是一間獨立、非牟利、非由政府資助的慈善機構;每年均會舉辦大大小小的籌募活動,向社會上各階層人士募集捐款,幫助社會上眾多有 需要的人。” – for more information on this amazing organization check out their website: www.commchest.org). So I went to their website and found PAGES on other organizations they support!!! Click here to find out about MANY other organizations in Hong Kong who are trying to help the elderly, handicapped, women, children, drug users…EVERYTHING! When you open the page find the “MEMBER AGENCIES” section and click on it (“會 員 福 利 機 構”). I personally am so happy to see that so many of these organizations exist in Hong Kong…hopefully we can all try to learn more about them and see if we can help…
