LOOKING FOR A BASS PLAYER找bass手

Please read the advertisement on the right if you’re interested to play for us! 如果你们有兴趣的话请看我们右手边的广告。

It’s getting closer…getting closer to get out of here!!! Don’t get me wrong. I do love Hong Kong – this is my home and will always be my home. I love the laws, I love the freedoms, I love that I can read anything I want to read here, I love that I can watch whatever TV I want, I love that our public transport system is efficient, I love that our customer service in most places are really very good…只有多几天!请不误会我。。。我是十分爱这个城市。。。我很珍惜这里所有的自由。。。我想看什么没有任何人会封我的电视或者报纸等等,我很珍惜我们这里的法律(全世界都是跟着这里的法律),我很珍惜我们这里的交通,我很珍惜这里工作人员的工作态度。。。

It’s just certain people in this city that drive me crazy. Take for example, last night I went out for dinner and the table next to me were so loud!!! Why do you have to be so loud?!??!They were talking so loud and I just don’t understand when people are this inconsiderate. Anyway…these inconsiderate people were so loud, that we finished our food and left right away. 就是这里有一些性格的人会破坏这里的感觉。比方说,我昨天晚上去了吃晚餐。坐在我们旁边的班人挺没有礼貌!他们说话说的十分大声!!!挺傻逼!!!我很想面对问“这个餐厅是你的吗?你看不到在这个餐厅还有其他人!!!你真是一个那么自私的人觉得我们全部人很想听你们的对话?!?!”傻逼。他们说的那么大声让我们马上吃完然后离开那个餐厅。
I’m tired…going to sleep。 我太累了。。。我睡觉。。。再见.

3 MORE DAYS UNTIL BEIJING AND BANGKOK!!

Oh my god…I can’t wait to get out of Hong Kong!!! I’m so excited to leave this stupid city!!! Woohoo!!! 我挺开心终于离开这个笨蛋的城市!!!我很需要一点时间不在香港。

The Bangkok show is going to be amazing…we’re so excited to be playing with some awesome Thai bands especially our friends in Thai hardcore band BORN FROM PAIN!!! That’s going to be awesome to see them again…曼谷的演出肯定是兴奋!!!我们很兴奋可以跟很多本地泰国的乐队一起演出!比方说泰国的硬核乐队BORN FROM PAIN!!!

I just want these next 3 days to go by super fast!!! FAI DI!!!!!!!! 我想这三天快点过!!!

BANGKOK!!! We want you!!! hahahaha…

Oh by the way – we are looking for a bass player. Ho decided to leave the band (again) a month ago and has agreed to play our next 4 shows. So we’re looking for a bass player now. 好的 – 我们好像没有通知大家。我们bass手Ho再决定了离开这个乐队。你们可能记得他上年已经离开了一次。然后他留了一段时间 但是上个月他再决定了离队。

所以我们又开始了找bass手。

If you are interested please think about these things first 如果你有兴趣的话,请请请请先看这些东西:
1. We LOVE hardcore…if you want to join this band it is essential that you know what hardcore is. Before you contact us, check out bands like Sick of it All, Comeback Kid, Minor Threat, Ignite, First Blood, Terror, Bane, Casey JOnes, Gorilla Biscuits, Madball…我们是挺爱硬核的人。我们是硬核文化和音乐的歌迷。你联络我们之前请听这些乐队: Sick of it All, Comeback Kid, Minor Threat, Ignite, First Blood, Terror, Casey Jones, Bane, Gorilla Biscuits, Madball…等等。。。如果你觉得他们的riff是很简单,音乐是很无聊或者太朋克的话,那很明显硬核不适合你。

2. Hardcore is NOT just about music…it is a way of life…if you are ready to make this band a BIG part of your life then call us. This band is like the air we breathe – it is just a part of our lives. 硬核不是只是一种音乐风格。。。硬核是一种生活花式。如果你准备好放这个乐队在你心里在一个挺高的位子 ,你马上联络我们。这个乐队就是我们空气一样 – 这就是我们生活,生命的一部分。你怎么可以叫我放弃呼吸?我一样不能可以放弃这个乐队。

3. You must understand that we are always working HARD and looking forward…we play all shows that people offer us…we rarely ask a barrage of questions from the organizers. 你一定要了解我们是一个很努力的乐队!我们永远就是往前走!当然荔枝王是一个有十一年多历史的乐队,但是我们很少会看和说以前做过的什么。。。我们全心全身就放了我们之后要做的东西。。。我们是很努力来玩这个乐队。别人找我们演出我们很少很少会拒绝他们。基本上,我们什么演出都会玩。

4. WE TOUR A LOT!!!!!!!!!!!!! If you know the history of this band you will know that we tour a lot. Since day one we knew that King Ly Chee’s home was never really going to be Hong Kong. Our home and where we REALLY feel comfortable is outside of Hong Kong. Because of this we OFTEN pay for our own plane tickets. We go because our concern is sharing our music and ideals with those around us! 我们是常出巡演!!!!!!!如果你明白我们的历史那你应该很清楚明白我们这个乐队是挺爱巡演!我们从第一天开始这个乐队都很清楚,香港不能做到荔枝王的“家”。我们的真真正正的“家”就是在路上,在别的地方/城市/国家/在香港外面。因为我们很喜欢去外面演出,所以我们通常去那边演出都是自己付机票。这个是一个很重要的重点。

5. We are all people that do not want to be old and grey one day and look at our lives and regret that we didn’t try harder when we were younger. That’s why we try to give this band our all! We’re all young right now! We’re not going to waste our youth fearing this or fearing that…我们的信念都是:
我们不想到老的时候才后悔我们年轻的时候没有真心试过跟我们梦想。我们现在还是年轻人,我们不想浪费我们时间怕这个东西,怕那个东西。怕那么多东西有什么用?是没用。我现在可以说我已经花了十一年的时间为了我这个梦想。我还有能力继续活着这个梦想因为我还有精力看看可不可以得到我的梦想。所以我已经知道我老的时候一定不会后悔。如果我的孙子一天问我“爷爷,你那么喜欢音乐,你有没有试过跟着你的梦想?”我很肯定可以面对面跟他说“我有”。然后我可以激发他也试一试跟真的他想走的路!!!

6. We’re looking for a LONG term member!!! 我们当然是找一个长期的人
Finally…If any of this scared you – do NOT call us. 最后!!!如果你看上面的东西然后觉得太过分或者我们写的东西是太夸张,请不联络我们。你不要浪费你自己的时间,还不要浪费我们的时间。

If for some reason you STILL are interested to join us then call Brian: 9343-0457  然后,如果你真的还有兴趣的话(我不知道什么人会有兴趣进入我们这个乐队)那请联络我们的Brian: 9343-0457

BEIJING and BANGKOK and CNHC!!!

Yes – in 3 and a half days I’m getting on a train with my lovely girlfriend and taking it all the way up to Beijing! Can’t wait…we both love taking the train in China…so much fun and just getting to hang out for a good 30 hours…多三个半天之后我跟我女朋友将会上火车去北京!我们真爱坐火车在内地里面旅游!挺好玩。。。三十个小时侯之后到北京。。。

Then Bangkok!!! We haven’t played in Bangkok since 2006!!! Oh my god!!! That’s a LONG time ago!!! It’s about time we went back to that wonderful place where heavy music is SUPER huge!!! It’s so nice to go to a place that has so much support for heavy music…we always seem to forget that the type of music we play actually has tons of people supporting it. We just forget because in Hong Kong we will always remain a tiny little band because there is no support for rock music in general – and even less support for heavy music – and even LESS support for hardcore…然后星期六我们会在曼谷演出!!!太期待这个机会再去曼谷演出!我们上一次去曼谷演出就是零六年!他们的重型音乐的情况真厉害!挺多人有支持这种音乐。。。如果你想用“市场”这个字你可以说他们重型音乐的市场是挺大!他们metal当然是十分大但是他们硬核的世界也是不错!当然比我们香港的零人硬核世界大很多。我们常会忘记在香港外面重型音乐真有很热情的支持。我们会习惯我们在香港的事实所以很容易会忘记出面的支持者是很棒。。。就是我们自己家的情况是最差。。。

Bangkok – we can’t WAIT to see you guys!!! Bring the 2-steps, the circle pits, the stagedives!!! We can’t wait to see you guys go crazy!!! 曼谷的朋友们和支持者尽快可以见到你们!!!带你们2-step,circle pit, stagedive等等过来给我们看!!!很期待见到你们!!!

Check out some great CNHC hardcore bands!!! Hardcore is growing everyday in Northern China…I wonder why it’s not growing in Southern China at all…is Northern China and Southern China really that different? So weird…Something to think about…最后 – 下面我想介绍很多内地的硬核乐队!!!硬核在中国的北方越来越多!!!为什么我们南方的没有这样的情况呢?有点奇怪。。。这件事情应该大家需要商量一下。。。

Here’s they are…proof that hardcore is growing everyday in China 反正,中国的硬核世界真有希望。。。下面就是证明!!! :-)

“FUCK YEAH I AM STILL HOLDING ON…我当然还在握紧”

The Bane song “Speechless” rules…amongst many songs really…

The best part about a lot of their lyrics is that they have plenty of songs that talk about how it doesn’t matter that they’re not making money, and that they are always begging to join tours, no matter what – they have NOT given up on all of this. They will continue to lose money but always tour everywhere just so they can see all our “smiling faces, helping them along”. Bane的最棒的地方都是他们的歌词。他们常会唱关于硬核文化给了这个人什么东西,或者他现在那么大年纪但是他还没放弃了硬核和他这个乐队(虽然他们bass和鼓手变了很多次 – 这个事情常会发生!你们所有喜欢话我们的笨蛋应该快点接受这样的事实。)Bane的歌有说他们不是为挣钱出去巡演(但是他们也有说他们巡演的时候不想损失钱)。。。他们不会放弃出去巡演玩他们的音乐因为他们知道他们去哪儿都有人等着他们上台演出。

That’s the key to hardcore…the fighting spirit. Most people don’t have this. Many people who have joined KLC turned out not to have it. But I still do. Never once have I questioned this. I will fight for this until the very end. 我觉得这样的放弃,永远坚持的精神就是代表到硬核文化和这个态度。我觉得大部人就是没有这个精神。有些进入荔枝王的人也是没有这个态度和精神。但是我还有。我一次都没有想过放弃这个乐队。我还记得我的银行里面只有十九块钱。。。我还记得四年不停白天我要工作,晚上要读书上学,那时候我一点时间都没有。。。但是我还需要找点时间出来为了我这个乐队。那个那么辛苦的时候我也没有想过放弃。

就是这个精神我希望多些香港人可以有。。。很需要这个精神。

That’s all the beauty of a hardcore community…a community brings like-minded spirits and hearts together. These people come together to support each other as they try to live their dreams…that’s what’s special about a hardcore “community” that cares about something deeper then looking cool, how big your breakdown is, how cool your new haircut is, etc. 硬核文化里面的社会也是一个很美丽的东西。。。因为这个社会里面的人都是一样有这个态度的人。。。如果你身边的朋友都是一样为了他们的梦想争取,就是一个很健康的环境。。。这样大家都是支持大家继续活下去他们想走的路。

Unfortunately – this is long gone in Hong Kong…I wish we still had that little community we used to have. It was such a positive time back then…可惜 – 在香港已经太多年我们没有了这个社会。以前可以说有个很美丽的硬核社会。。。但是他们全部一是变了二离开了这里。。。以前真正面。我还记得过去看别的演出我会很开心见到那边的人 – 很多那些人我常不会见到,就是在演出的地方才见到。那时候一见到我们大家会玩的开心,笑话,等等。。。。

现在我过去看演出我会觉得在场地里面可能有起码十个人是挺恨我的。是非常不舒服。

Right now, thank god I still have my buddies in STW around. Even though they’re not a hardcore band, they are dudes that have the same beliefs in a “band” that I do (right now more so then they did in the past). 虽然STW不是一个硬核乐队,我可以说我真开心起码我们跟这班人很近。。。他们就是给我很强的鼓励。。。给我了很强友情的感觉。。。

But I do miss the “community” that we used to have. I missed going to shows and seeing friends again that I usually don’t see. We used to laugh and have a good time supporting each other. Now I go to watch a show and I feel like I see at least 10 people who hate me and that just makes me crazy uncomfortable.

I would love for the old days…我真希望一天我们本的的硬核文化可以回来。

地球一小时这个礼拜六八点半EARTH HOUR SAT 8:30pm

These past two days I’ve been talking to my kids in school about this special Earth hour that is coming this Saturday at 8:30pm!!! They have been SO moved by all the things that we’ve talked about. We talked about “fossil fuels” like coal, oil and gas and how these are the things that people use to make electricity which we all use in our own homes, schools, offices, etc…The kids were so shocked when they found out that one day we might not have any coal or oil left…这两天我跟的小朋友在学校介绍了这个很感动东西叫“地球一小时”。他们真热情!对这个活动的意思他们完全支持!你自己想一想 – 六七岁的小朋友可以明白什么?但是他们有再问我什么叫“化石燃料”然后我会跟聊这个东西是什么。。。为什么我们要保留这个东西,为什么大家需要用小点电。。。然后有聊我们这个地球为什么越来越热。。。为什么我们的污染的问题是挺严重。。。我们有介绍电是哪里出来的 – 这个建筑是叫“动力工厂”。。。我的小朋友挺可爱,我一开始说“动力工厂”有些小朋友马上说“如果我是动力工厂的老板那我马上会停这样的东西!”哈哈哈哈。。。

We talked about how all that pollution is trapping heat into our world and making our world hotter and hotter…this in turn is making ice melt in the arctic’s, raising the water levels all over the world.

The children were so funny because they asked about the Power Plants that create the electricity. And I said that all the coal in the world goes to these places. Then the children said “If I was the boss of a powerplant I would close it all down!” HAHAHAHA…so cute…

Anyway…I love that my kids got so impassioned by this huge global warming problem and wanted to do something about it.

I don’t know if you guys are following the google saga but I think it is really funny. Now some newspapers up there are saying that “google has made a big mistake” hahahaha…and they’re saying that “Google should be ashamed that they are allowing people access to pornography and subversive content”. 我不知道你们有没有跟这个Google的事情但是我觉得每天看报纸的报道真好笑。现在上面的报纸有开始说“Google错过了!” 然后上面的报纸有说“Google应该感到很羞愧因为他们现在给了很多人看色情电影,破坏性的事情,等等。。。”

我一看到这样的报道我会觉得很好笑也会觉得我们上面的支持者很可惜。。。我觉得这样的报纸不负责任。。。你自己想一想 – 全地球都有这样的机会看这样的东西,但是那一个国家为了这样的具体内容经过他人开始破坏他们的世界,破坏了他们的和睦?没有。一个国家都没有。

外面的国家就是对他们的市民很有信心。大家就是想他们的国家越来越棒。。。是那么简单。这样每个国家应该给多点机会他们市民看看多很多东西!不是减进入!

I think all that stuff is so funny…You idiots – the WHOLE world has access to these sites. Is the rest of the world in chaos? Are there countries who are rioting because of this content? NO!!! This doesn’t cause social upheaval!!! Oh my god…ridiculous.
