yo…its been a hell past few weeks trying to put together this festival, taking care of King Ly Chee stuff which is getting out of hand, taking care of the two Shenzhen shows that we have this weekend, trying to figure out if we can set up a tour in Australia for this July…i feel like the workload never ends. on top of all of this i still have a fulltime job taking care of kids all day…i think i’m going to be old and grey by the time i’m 30…that’s only two years away but i already feel like i’m going to be burning out soon. terrible feeling that’s for sure…found out someone else is jumping on this “festival” bandwagon – we always set the trends! hahahaha…i’m just kidding dude. i sent an email out to all the bands that are participating at Hong Kong’s first punk/hardcore/metal festival so if you are one of those bands reading this site then PLEASE check your email now…the pressure is on…i hope a lot of people show up at the festival!!!

so its final…China has decided that we will NOT be able to choose our leader in 2007…but before people go totally emotional about this, think about it this way – it gives us EVEN MORE time to start learning more about “democracy” and what TYPE of democracy is best for HK. don’t let your emotions cloud your judgment and thinking…YES – it sucks that Tung Chee Hwa could possibly still be sitting as head of HK – he can’t be head of his own home, how the FUCK can this dude think that he can rule HK? he of course should do the honorable thing and step down – but is that going to happen? of course not…so please, sit and think for awhile – think about the fact that NONE of the pro-democracy camps have really started to EDUCATE people about the beauty of “democracy”. all they’ve talked about is “universal suffrage” without explaining to the “normal” people the benefits of being able to select our own leader. to people like you and me, the benefits are obvious – but to the “normal” everyday HK person…its not. NOW is the time that education is needed even more…it should start today. ANYWAY: we’re going to Shenzhen on saturday and sunday to play two shows with our good Beijing friends Reflector! then the following week is the BIG punk/hardcore/metal festival – HK’s first!!! we’ll see you guys there…please check our old news postings for more information on what is going on with King Ly Chee distribution…sucks – we got scammed…anyway…peace…more little updates on the BANDS and MEDIA page…

alright ladies and gents…what you have here is the start of King Ly Chee’s new site layout…I’m still adding shit to the site so keep coming back to see how it looks…there are still some problems with the site because i’m using an old version of Frontpage which SUCKS!!! i don’t understand why even though Frontpage is owned by Microsoft, that it doesn’t offer the SAME features that Microsoft Word offers…isn’t that just common sense that all Microsoft programs should offer roughly the same stuff? anyway…went to check out Hang on the Box yesterday at a place which turned out to be totally the WRONG place for an awesome punk band like Hang on the Box to play. whoever helped organize their shows has NO idea about the culture of music that Hang on the Box plays. yesterday they played in front of all these families with their little children so when they sang the lyrics “fucking bitch” repeatedly, even I was a little embarrassed being surrounded by kids. i feel bad for Hang on the Box because its not their fault that they were playing this show. anyway…they’re playing tonight at the Hard Rock Cafe which i can’t imagine is going to be a very active show but we’ll see what happens. i think Hang on the Box is used to a lot more movement by the audience but oh well, the people that organize their shows should be to blame. had they organized shows more in tune with their music – the audience reaction would’ve been better. they’re a good band with awesome music that is not really punk but a mix of indie rock etc…their guitar sound is awesome and they DEFINITELY have a strong punk attitude…they’re rad – if you have $100 then come by tonight…the BAND page and MEDIA page have been linked so check those out…if there are any problems with this site please relax – i’ll try to fix it soon…SOMETHING IMPORTANT: the company that we chose to distribute King Ly Chee’s CD in Hong Kong has treated us like absolute garbage. they distribute mainstream artists so i guess a small HK band like us is a waste of their time. for almost 3 months now we have heard that many shops have said that our album is “sold out” – but we know its NOT. the reason why they said its “sold out” is because they have placed an order for our album but our distributor is too “busy” to send it to them. i know that HMV in Shatin placed an order for our album in fucking February and the distributor STILL has NOT sent it to them. can you believe that? its sad that these kinds of things happen to us…but we’re strong enough. our label Polar Bear has decided to take the remaining King Ly Chee CD’s away from the distributors and it looks like we will distribute the CD’s ourselves…we hope you guys will help us because we will REALLY need your help now…more information later…
