Nanjing photos + trip to Singapore

Photos from our recent show in Nanjing are up on our Douban page…you can navigate to that on the above link…the only words on our menu that are in Chinese is the Douban page…

I’m going on a trip with my wife and my parents today to Singapore for a few days! Very excited to be doing this for them…haven’t been on a trip with them in many many years…plus I absolutely LOVE Singapore so I’m super stoked to be there again and eat all the amazing food and be surrounded by super nice and friendly people…You kind of miss that kind of kindness while living in HK…so when you get to Singapore and when you go to restaurant and people are SO friendly – it just takes you by so much surprise…pleasant surprise…

Can’t wait to be there in just a few hours…

Last night was the last time I watched one of my all time favorite HK bands…The Lovesong are ending in just a short few weeks. One of their guitar players is leaving HK and so this it…these last few shows are their last few shows ever…

I have lots of thoughts about the demise of this wonderful band…lots of thoughts of the low quality of HK bands…lots of thoughts about why is it that HK bands seem to be satisfied if they are good enough for the HK “market”. All of this stuff just makes me wonder how different King Ly Chee is from the rest of HK. We are never happy just being a “HK” band…we always try to do things on an international level. You can already see by looking at the history of HK bands what HK bands need to do to “make” it in this city – NONE of it has to be actually writing good music…if you get a hair stylist or wardrobe stylist you’re going ot make it in this city…it’s a superficial city so you have to do superficial things in order to make it here…

Anyway…none of us have any sort of goals to make it in HK. I could careless if we are always the forgotten band in HK. Because outside of HK we have tons of people who know what we’re all about and respect us for it and thus, support us for it. YOU guys are what makes this band keep pushing onwards.

I’m going  to miss the lovesong…I wonder if there’ll be another HK band that can bring their music and performance to their level again…

New First Blood record is going to be awesome!

The new First Blood record is going to be so heavy …check out a track on this link here…sounds SOOOO good…nice and heavy but with lyrics that are super super meaningful!!! Straight edge樂隊First Blood的新唱片肯定會特棒!過去這個網站聽聽他們其中一首新歌!!

We’re traveling to Singapore this week with my family! Can’t wait to take my parents on a trip…the last time I traveled with my parents anywhere was when I was 17 years old! hahahaha…it’ll be nice to travel with my parents now as an adult! A  married adult! hahahaha…我跟我老婆將會帶我父母親去新加坡玩幾天!差不多十幾年沒有跟我父母親去旅行所以這次真開心我終於可以帶他們出去玩兒!!!

在我們豆瓣開始了一個很有趣的事情關於硬核。。。最近發現在內地有些人亂了硬核裡幾個信念。。。最大的誤會是如果你是一位愛硬核的人那你一定是straight edge.這個誤會通常會發生。。。但是事實是straight edge 就是硬核文化的一部分。。。這個意思不是如果你支持硬核那一定要做straight edge. 這個完全不對的。。。特多硬核的人不是straight edge…個人有個人的選擇。。。我們大家只需要尊重他人的選擇。。。

很有意思 :-)

Back from another great time in China

Another great time was had by us up in Nanjing this past weekend…we were there for less than 24 hours but we still had a great show and had an amazing time. 回來了香港。。。再玩的很開心。。。我們只在南京不夠二十四小時但是還是特好玩。。。

所有內地的支持者請過去我們的豆瓣看看關於這個音樂節的感覺: http://www.douban.com/note/97130533/

But coming back to HK we always come back very confused and conflicted in our hearts. We always have to wonder how  a band like us can have such great support outside of Hong Kong but have ZERO support in Hong Kong? The city where we’ve spent the most heart and soul and energy trying to create something for us and hardcore? It doesn’t make any sense. 但是我還是想說說一些東西。。。我們每次回來香港我們都有個很奇怪的感覺。。。為什麼我們所有演出的城市/國家的支持是比香港強很多?我們花了最多心和精力是在香港為了香港,但是我們最底的支持是在香港。真奇怪。。。雖然香港的音樂文化真不適合我們,但是這裡還是我們的家。所有樂隊最強的支持應該是在他們自己的家嗎?

Anyway…we all know and can feel where King Ly Chee’s focus is anyway – and it’s obvious it’s no longer Hong Kong and it hasn’t been for many many years. 反正 – 大家都應該感覺到我們這幾年的希望全部放了那兒。

So thank you to all our true supporters wherever you are in this world – it means so much to us that you’re still with us regardless…所以我們真要拿這個機會謝謝我們所有支持者。。。無論你現在在哪裡。。。我們真要謝謝你們的支持!

Thank you to everyone in China who have given us so much hope…非常謝謝所有內地的支持者!!!你們的熱情太強了!!!每次上台聽到你們大聲叫我們的名字真感動我們!!!一聽到馬上忘記我們在香港的情況。。。特謝謝你們!

Please check out this link to check out a video of our time in Nanjing…在這裡我們上載了我們在南京演的影片CLICK HERE!
