  • Awesome summer!

    Posted by Riz Hardcore on August 31, 2010

    Got back from Chengdu late last night…around 2am in the morning…then had to sleep for about 3 hours and then had to get up and go teach my wonderful children at school. Luckily I love teaching and being around children so it was an easy day for me…I was just incredibly tired that’s all…我們昨天晚上很晚從成都回來了香港 (我們的KENT更晚才回來了澳門)。我就是晚上兩點鐘才回到家裡,然後睡覺睡了三個小時然後起來了 去學校教書。但是我很幸運因為我超愛小朋友所以我的工作 不錯!今天就是超累。。。。

    Chengdu was incredible…they went completely crazy for us…again, can’t say how much it means to us to be playing in places all over Asia where people “get” us and support us…coming from a city where people who used to play in “heavy” bands all play in pop bands now where they have the craziest haircuts, wear clothes that make them look like F4, an do other stuff that makes me cringe when i see their photos…it’s nice to leave this city and go to places where people want the MUSIC to do the talking is AWESOME! 成都 真厲害!!!我們那邊的支持者對我們超級熱情!我們一上台他們就瘋狂了!!!我就是最愛這樣的反應。。。就是很真,很有愛的反應。。。成都的人 也代表了他們就是一個非常開放思想的城市。。。在一個那麼大的廣場他們會請我們這樣的樂隊來演出!!!真棒!

    我們這個夏天真開心和幸運我們有那麼多機會去那麼多很厲害亞洲的城市演出!!!最開心就是每個城市我們都有特多支持者!!!我覺得這個就是代表到堅持你們的夢想就是一個十分需要做的東西。。。我們永遠不會放棄。。。這個不就是歌詞那麼簡單 – 這個就是我們樂隊的信念。

    我們回來了我們的香港。。。在這裡以前玩重型音樂的人慢慢會變開始玩流行歌。開始有很奇怪的髮型。。。開始穿的超級潮流的衣服。。。完全跟F4分 不出。。。所以我們在香港的存在就是很奇怪。。。

    反正 – 謝謝大家的支持和愛!!!你們的鼓勵就是特強!!!

    Thank you everyone! Can’t wait to be back in your areas soon!!!

  • Horrible tragedy in Manila!

    Posted by Riz Hardcore on August 25, 2010

    Our hearts go out to the families and to the victims of this horrible tragedy in the Philippines. I cannot believe it happened and I stood at my house watching it on TV for hours and hours…I couldn’t believe and still can’t believe that this happened. and that it happened for all to see on TV. Unbelievably horrible…

    May they rest in peace up in heaven away from this cold horrible world where the mentally deranged roam freely in this world with guns and ammo.

  • Singapore was great!

    Posted by Riz Hardcore on August 24, 2010

    I can’t even begin to tell you how amazing Baybeats was for us…can’t begin to tell you how amazing of a reception we got at this incredible music festival! We were already amazed that we were invited to perform at this, but then to get on stage and look at all the amazing Singaporeans who turned up to support us to go crazy with us and to have all these people come sing with us too was UNBELIEVABLE!!!

    All I can say and I’m sure the rest of the band wants to say too – is a HUGE thank you to everyone one of you who came to support us at this show…we know there were tons of people from Singapore but ALSO people from China and the Philippines!!! What a great feeling to have this type of support from all these wonderful Asian countries come together to support King Ly Chee at Baybeats!

    Thank you Singapore…

    Right now I’m watching this Hong Kong tourist group hostage situation in Manila on TV!!! OH MY GOD!!!!!

    Posted by Riz Hardcore on August 19, 2010

    Got some awesome photos from the Busan Rock Festival that we played a few weekends ago.

    Dude – SOOOOO excited to get to Singapore this weekend!!! Should  be fun and we’re really excited because the y have given us a full set time to play…so we’re planning on playing about 11 songs so we’re SUPER excited to be able to do that…we’re planning to play a whole NEW version of When Will We Learn! We will also be playing our own version of an amazing China punk band called SMZB…the song is called Scream for Life…but we’ve changed it to our version of it :-)

  • S. Korea was awesome!

    Posted by Riz Hardcore on August 12, 2010

    Korea was AWESOME!!!! The two shows that we played were unbelievable and are going to be shows that will be hard to forget.

    The Busan Rock Festival was one of the most amazing shows ever…we walked on stage at around 5:30pm thinking that NO ONE was going to be there at that hot as fuck time of the day…but we got out and there were thousands of people there! I looked at the audience and I saw thousands of people from all walks of life there supporting music…supporting all types of music. When we got on stage the audience was so kind that they started screaming our band name even though they didn’t know who were. That type of true support was something we haven’t felt in Hong Kong in many many years and it was nice to feel it again from the kind and supportive of people of Busan city…

    So we would like to thank EVERYONE who helped us and supported us at these two shows. We would like to thank all the new supporters who are now reading this website from Busan!!! It’s amazing that some of you have even found us on facebook and have added us…KAMSAHMIDA!!!!

    After a wonderful weekend of music and friendship…the experience ended in one of the most horrible ways I could have ever imagined…

    It has been 3 days since I have returned to Hong Kong and my wife says I have lost weight, I can’t sleep properly, I feel dizzy every once in awhile, I get migraines now too…

    It was a horrible experience at the airport and at the hands of Hong Kong’s biggest embarrassments called Dragonnair. I will never fly this airline again and I highly suggest that none of you do either. They are the worst, most disrespectful and most unprofessional airlines I have ever dealt with. I will be sending them a 10 page complaint letter and hope to see what they will say in response to what happened to me.

    Singapore…we can’t wait to be there…but I’m dreading that something bad may happen on the flight there or on the flight back. I am now scarred…

    Anyway – see you all Aug 21 in Singapore…

  • Korea – here we come! 韓國我們來了!!!

    Posted by Riz Hardcore on August 5, 2010

    We are leaving tonight at 2am to go to Busan, Korea! I have never taken a flight that late at night…it’s totally ridiculous…we will arrive in Korea at 6am Friday morning!!! And then of course the hotel won’t let us check in until 1pm so I don’t know what we’re going to do from 6am until the 1pm hotel check in. 我們今天晚上的兩點鐘將會坐飛機去韓國的城市叫釜山。我們從來沒有坐過那麼晚的飛機!太瘋癲。。。我們將會早上六點鐘到韓國。。。然後當然我們要等到下午一點鐘才能進去我們酒店。

    Anyway…we’re definitely looking forward to playing in Korea again! Seoul has always been very nice to us…this will be nice to see what’s up with Busan…反正我們很期待再有這個機會去韓國演出。。。

    On Saturday we’re playing at 4pm in the afternoon…don’t really know if anyone will be there at that time…but we’re going to play our hearts out for the 20 mins that they gave us to play. 我們星期六下午四點鐘將會在韓國的音樂節演出!

    We’ve updated our recording progress!!! I have also opened up a page on our website where we’ll house all the videos…還有 – 我們終於開了一個頁為了給你們看到錄音的進步

    Check it out here請過去這裡看看: SHOW ME!!!

  • Photos 照片

    Posted by Riz Hardcore on August 3, 2010

    As promised we have a link to some amazing photos from the Beijing show last weekend! These photos actually reminded all of us of the photos taken by another also amazing photographer in Beijing Yun Yun…YunYun took awesome photos of our very last show on that CNHC tour which was in Beijing. 今天我們想給你們看我們上個禮拜在北京演出的照片!看這些照片的時候我們大家馬上有想起上次去北京演出也有一位照相師叫远远 – 他那次一個特難忘的一個晚上拍的照片也是特厲害。

    So here are some photos from last Saturday…I love these photos because you can see the emotions and feelings of the audience of people who support us in CHina…amazing to have this type of unbridled support for us…這次我們想介紹一位人叫柴東新 – 他這次拍的照片是十分好看!最厲害都是他拍到觀眾的表情,和熱情! 他還有拍到我們演出的活力和觀眾的活力!真厲害!!!真希望再去北京和其他地方見到這樣的很有熱情的照相師!!!

    這裡享受他拍的照片Enjoy the photos here:

    Finally, so in HK if your parents are rich, and if their status is high, you are allowed to hit a police officer and not go to jail? That’s pretty cool! Wow! What a civilized world we live in!最後我想說 – 在香港如果你們的父母親是很有錢還有 如果他們的地位很高,那你打個警察是完全沒事。昨天有個女人給法官放走。這個女人已經試過打警察三次。但是因為他父母親是很有錢她不要坐監獄。那如果我的父母親也有錢拿我今天晚上過去殺人好嗎?因為這樣我也不要坐監獄。

  • Back in Hong Kong回來了香港

    Posted by Riz Hardcore on August 2, 2010


    We’re back in HK! Spending time with my brothers in KLC and playing in a city that we LOVE so much was PERFECT for me…very much the therapy I  needed. The show was awesome! We’ve played at MAO MANY times now – but this time was by far the best sound we’ve ever had at this venue. The engineer who did sound for us at MAO is someone that likes the band so it was very easy for this person to do sound and it was very easy for us to communicate with him with what we wanted. 剛回來了香港。。。這幾天跟我荔枝王去北京逛逛和演出和吃飯和聊天兒就是一個非常好的事情。。。去北京前我的心情真差。。。但是在我的兄弟中我馬上忘記了我所有不開心的事情。。。當然渠道北京我還有好多好朋友所以我一見到他們一樣特開心。。。李游,李太,黃佳斯,所有北京CUA硬核的朋友 – 見到大家真開心和特舒服。。。我已經很想他們。。。


    Today we start recording drums…then in 4 days we fly to Korea to play two shows in a city called Pusan! We have no idea how many people know us in this city, and we’ve already been told not to expect too many people at the first show. That’s fine! We don’t really mind how many people come to a show when we play as long as it’s people who are there to have fun…We do TRULY thank the organizer of the first Pusan show Geon for organizing this and supporting us!! That’s so nice of him to do this special show for us. The next day we’re playing at the Busan rock festival and we’re at playing at 4pm  – the first band! 我們今天是開始錄音!!!終於了!然後四天后我們要去韓國演兩場演出。我們不知道那個城市有幾個人認識我們(安排著已經跟我們說別有太高的期待哈哈哈 – 沒事!)。。。但是我們一直沒有擔心這個事情 。有人幫我們安排然後幾個人還在就夠了。 第二天是在韓國其中最大的音樂節演出。當時我們一上台我們馬上會通知觀眾我們就是一隊從中國來的樂隊!:-)

    We’ll be uploading photos from the show in Beijing soon! Paul – our great awesome brother and China manager – has a good photographer who came to the show to take photos of us. Can’t wait to see his photos! This photographer is amazing – a music festival actually was going to pay for him to come out to the festival to take photos – but he told them he’d rather stay in Beijing and take photos of us!!! That’s amazing! There were also a number of people at the show who were actually going to go to the music festival to watch us – but they chose to stay in Beijing instead to watch us…that’s sooooo amazing to have that type of passionate support for us. Please keep it up!!! 我們一收到在北京演出的照片我們會馬上上載!Paul有個好朋友是拍照者 – 這位人很厲害。他原來收到音樂節的邀請去拍照,但是他跟他們說他會留在北京拍我們!特厲害。。。在場地也有幾位人本來是音樂節但是後來選擇了來支持我們。


    我們下次去內地演出 – 成都八月二十八號!!!!
