    H2O has released another song from their cover-only record coming out on Nov 15! This song is by a band called Embrace – Embrace was Ian Mackaye (Minor Threat vocalist)’s other band…this cover sounds AWESOME! 我们其中最爱得硬核乐队H2O将会发出他们全cover歌的唱片!今天早上他们发了给大家听其中一首歌。就是一队叫Embrace的歌 – Embrace就是Minor Threat主唱的另外一个乐队 (他还有十分厉害的乐队叫Fugazi) Check it:

    I have never been into the metal band called Gojira – but this morning I saw a video of the drummer recording their new album…this dude is SICK…tearing it up on the drums. Makes me want to actually check out this band 我从来对这个乐队Gojira没有什么兴趣。。。但是今天早上见到他录新专辑的影片 – 他十分经!Holy fuck! 看完突然有兴趣听听下这个乐队:

    Word…the skies are beautiful today everyone! Go out and enjoy it!!! 香港的天好漂亮。。。快出去享受啊!

  • mixing engineer

    Posted by Riz Hardcore on October 21, 2011


    Yesterday morning I spoke to our mixing/mastering engineer who lives out in the US. This guy’s name is Zack and he’s the guy that mixed, mastered and produced First Blood’s album “Killafornia”! As a whole – all of King Ly Chee LOVES that record and the massive sounding drums – the angry guitars – and the in your face vocals. We can’t wait to see what magic this guy is going to do on our album! 昨天早上我和我们在美国的mixing/mastering engineer讲了电话!他叫Zack – 这位牛逼人是当First Blood唱片Killafornia的producer/mixer/master! 我们全队非常爱死那张First Blood的专辑。。。那张的鼓声音,吉他的力量,主唱的声音。。。全部都非常火爆!所以我们期待看看他怎么样mix/master我们的歌!

    From day one – this band has always been about trying our best to raise our band to an international level band. So to send our music out to an incredibly experienced person to get our music mixed and mastered, is something we are VERY eager to do. 荔枝王从第一天开始(99年), 我们的目标就是做成一队国际级的乐队。。。我们不想就当一个本地香港乐队。所以我们想能把我们的歌给一位国际级的producer,我们太兴奋!

    Mid-November is when we should be getting some mixes back from him…we can NOT wait to hear what he does…十一月中我们可以听第一二的mix!!! FUCK!!! 太期待。。。

    Good interviews here with Sick of it All and our good friend Matt Fox of Shai Hulud (pretty funny too) 下面有个很好笑的采访 – 是Sick of it All跟我们好朋友Shai Hulud的Matt Fox:

    Good interview with Toby Morse of H2O 这里有个特好看的采访 – 是跟H2O的主唱Toby:

  • h2o…KLC CNHC dvd…

    Posted by Riz Hardcore on September 21, 2011


    Yesterday we were allowed to see the first few minutes of our CNHC tour DVD! It’s pretty amazing that this thing will finally come out…I still remember super clearly that I purposely filmed everything when we were on tour – when we were walking around, moving gear, in and out of hotels, talking to people…I remember filming all that stuff. Yesterday our DVD director finally showed us a few minutes of it…it’s not perfect yet, but it’s nice to finally see it. I can’t wait to see the rest of it and see how he edits everything else. 昨天我们终于能见到我们CNHC巡演DVD的第一个edit. 我看的时候都觉得大家都应该会享受这个DVD…我还记得巡演中我很努力什么东西都拍。。。逛逛的时候,进入酒店,般乐器和行李,跟他人聊。。。什么都拍。昨天我们DVD的导演终于给了我们看头几分钟。很期待看完全DVD…

    But we are planning to release this DVD together WITH our  new album. We want these things to come together to encourage people BUY our album. I’m sure people will download it for free – which is fine, because we all do that – but we hope our supporters are going to want to hold this album in their hands and look through the artwork and read the lyrics. 这个DVD将会在我们新专辑一起发出的。我们很想放这个DVD在我们新专辑的包装里面。。。意思就是你买CD你将会有两个碟: CD和DVD. 我们这样决定了因为我们希望这样可以鼓励多人出去买我们的作品。当然很多人还会上网免费上载 – 我们完全明白因为我们也是经常这样做。。。但是我们很希望我们的真正支持者会想在手里有我们的作品 – 希望他们想看到我们的封面的设计,和歌词,等等。。。。

    We’re excited…太兴奋啊!

    H2O is a fucking GREAT hardcore band that I’ve loved for years and years…I still remember watching them in like ’96 and the singer was just an explosion on stage – Toby Morse was a great frontman then. Now he’s 41 years and he STILL is amazing! Watch the video below and fall in love with this incredible hardcore band. For those of you who think “hardcore” is “mosh parts” and “breakdowns” and “cool hair” and fucking shit like “attack attack” with stupid keyboard parts and dance beats – you guys will hate H2O. You guys will hate all REAL hardcore for that matter. H2O是一个十分牛逼的硬核乐队。我还记得读大学的时候在美国差不多96年的时候是我第一次看他们表演。。。我还记得当时我觉得他们的主唱toby morse十分给力的。很有精力。。。也是很好笑!你看下面的影片里记住这个主唱今年是四十一岁!他还有那个精力。。。太棒!如果你是觉得这些东西才是hardcore:

    1. mosh
    2. breakdown
    3. 好帅的发型
    4. attackattack那种笨蛋的弹琴的位子。。。还有跳舞的beats


    FUCK OFF…你完全不知道h2o的历史。。。Toby做Sick of it All的roadie做了几年。h2O歌词完全包括所有关于硬核文化的元素。他们还是像gorilla biscuits和7 seconds那种比较正面硬核风格的音乐。他们是硬核。

    But in this video…the part that I fully love is that Toby continuously mentions the bands that influenced him and he does this in order for new hardcore kids to remember and respect the history of hardcore. He mentions bands like Minor Threat, Gorilla Biscuits, 7 Seconds, Sick of it All…bands that created this culture in the 80′s. 这个影片里我最欣赏的是Toby不断提及影响他的乐队: minor threat, gorilla biscuits, sick of it all, 7 seconds…

    别忘记你的roots…别忘记这个文化的roots (历史)!!! RESPECT

    Don’t forget your roots…don’t forget the struggle…it’s all about remembering the history.

    Posted by Riz Hardcore on August 24, 2011

    SO STOKED ON THESE SHOES!!! My homie Hisanari got me this pair over the summer in Japan and gave it to me last weekend…I’m PSYCHED!!! 我日本hardcore的好朋友Hisanari这个夏天在日本帮我买h2o的新队鞋子!!!上个周末终于给了我!太高兴。。。

    Remember your hardcore…MAD RESPECT to Vans for supporting hardcore…The Vans crew in Hong Kong needs to learn and educate themselves. 记住硬核文化。。。尊重硬核文化。我真想谢谢VANS每次来支持朋克和硬核文化。。。但是我只想说 – 香港的VANS很需要再学习一下什么是真正vANS的文化。

  • 牛逼乐队: Devil in Me (来自葡’国) AMAZING!

    Posted by Riz Hardcore on June 19, 2011

    Like I mentioned a few days ago with that amazing hardcore band from the Netherlands called No Turning Back…I love checking out bands that rule who are NOT from the USA. 我几天前提了 – 我很喜欢听听非美国的乐队。。。比如说荷兰的乐队No Turning Back, 加拿大的乐队Comeback Kid…还有我们完美的亚洲乐队!

    Here’s a band that all of KLC loves – a hardcore band called Devil in Me from Portugal!!! THIS BAND IS INCREDIBLE!!! Really gifted song writers…song structures are incredible…full of melody  and not just about being “tough” (read my blog post yesterday of that stupid band from Chile). I didn’t even realize that they had released a new album last year! The person that got me into this band is our drummer Egas who LOVES this band…he didn’t even know that Devil in Me had released a new record. 这里我想推介另外一队非美国的硬核乐队 – 他们叫Devil in Me来自葡国的乐队。。。我们全荔枝王十分爱上这个硬核乐队!他们歌的特好!有很多melody。。。还有他们很了解做一队硬核乐队不是一定需要好”tough”的印象 (你看看我昨天提的傻逼乐队 – 如果这样叫硬核那我马上放弃这个文化 hahahaha) – 音乐也不一定需要很重的。。。你一听这个乐队Devil in Me你就听到他们很有自己的style. 好棒。。。真棒。。。这个乐队就是我们鼓手Egas推介我们听。。。他也不知道原来Devil in Me去年已经发出了新专辑!你们下面可以下载这个乐队的新专辑。。。Anyway – download this great piece of wax here:

    Hong Kong is HOT AS FUCK!!! 香港他妈的太热啊!

    I dedicate this amazing tattoo of H2O lyrics to all my hardcore/metal/punk/indie-rock brothers and sisters all over the fucking world! :-) These are lyrics from the song called “5 Year Plan” that was released on H2O’s first album way back in ’95…I dedicate this to my brothers in 下面的图片我想送给我们全地球的硬核/金属/朋克/后滚的兄弟姐妹 (这个纹身就是牛逼硬核乐队H2O的歌叫5 Year Plan): Return the Truth, xItNeverHappened从未发生x, Unregenerate Blood不复之血, Loudspeaker, CUA Crew, Stand Strong, Hardplayer, Hot Pot Music 火锅, Human Brutality, The Geeks, Profound Hatred of Mankind (new band from S. Korea), SMZB, Larry’s Pizza, Tookoo, Reflector, Restraint, Overthrown, Piledriver, Queen City Crew, Gardo, Intolerant, Typecast, Love Me Butch, Born From Pain (Netherlands), Born From Pain (Thailand), No Turning Back, Shepherds the Weak, 13 Steps, Badburn, Evocation, Second Combat, BANE, Shai Hulud, Comeback Kid…

  • This is hardcore…

    Posted by Riz Hardcore on May 27, 2011

    Those who love hardcore know that an amazing hardcore band called H2O is in the midst of recording an all “covers” album called “Don’t Forget Your Roots”! I cannot WAIT for them to release this thing! If you read on this link the singer Toby Morse (also with the amazing organization called One Life, One Chance that talks about straight edge and PMA at schools all over the USA) says that they are doing this because these are the bands that inspired H2O to start a band. He also says what I think is the most important thing 真正爱上硬核文化的人都知道有个乐队叫H2O将会发出一个很特别的新专辑叫”Don’t forget your roots 别忘记你的根 (哈哈哈。。。应该不是“根” – 意思就是别忘记你的历史)”. 这张超特别的专辑就是H2O玩儿别人的歌。主唱Toby Morse说了他们决定了发出这张因为这班乐队就是激发H2O开始他们自己的乐队。。。他下面还有一个特棒的原因:

    “With so many new kids getting into hardcore everyday, it’s important that we keep exposing them to the ROOTS of this music and getting them into some of the originators of hardcore/punk. 每一天有很多新人参加这个文化,所以我们觉得是很重要给他们机会认识这个硬核/朋克文化的原创人。”

    I think that is a VITAL point for anyone that is getting into hardcore to understand…hardcore would be NOTHING without all the bands in the 80′s who created this from nothing. They are the ones that saw something that they didn’t like within the punk rock world, and left it and started playing music within a scene that was more productive and more positive – and hardcore was born. This thing that we all love here in 2011! :-) 这是一个特紧要的重点!今天的硬核不会存在如果80年代的乐队不努力建立这个文化,努力建立这个态度。。。就是他们在朋克的世界里觉得有些信念他们不同意,所以他们跳出去开始了另外一种文化,音乐风格,态度。。。这就是硬核的开头。这个文化三十年后还在!因为这个地球上还有特多很热情硬核的信徒。。。

    Check out the bands that H2O will be covering on this incredible CD 你看他们将会cover那几个乐队:

    The Ramones
    Dag Nasty
    Circle Jerks
    Bad Brains
    The Clash
    Government Issue
    Verbal Assault
    Gorilla Biscuits
    Mighty Mighty Bosstones
    7 Seconds
    Social Distortion
    Sick of It All

    Can’t wait to hear H2O’s versions of these songs!!! Some of those bands are not hardcore – there are punk rock bands (Rancid, The Ramones, Social Distortion), post-hardcore bands (Embrace, Dag Nasty) and even ska-punk bands (The Mighty Mighty Bosstones)! This is going to be AWESOME…太期待听他们的版本!肯定非常不同!有些乐队不只是硬核的!有写是朋克 (Rancid, The Ramones, Social Distortion), 后硬核 (Embrace, Dag Nasty) 还有ska-punk(The Mighty Mighty Bosstones)!

    I think that is always important…it’s always important to appreciate the history of a culture you love. To appreciate and respect a culture that you love – a culture that has had decades of history. A culture that people argue and fight to protect…我完全觉得如果你真了解任何文化,你首先需要明白那种文化的历史。。。这样你才可以欣赏以前的乐队,以前的人怎么为了这个东西努力到底。。。你才会明白为什么现在有特多人想保护这个文化 – 不想他人误会这个文化。。。

    This is hardcore…if you want to understand it, you have to do the work. What do I mean? You have to go and research, you have to go and check out bands, you have to go and read interviews, you have to go and talk to people…there’s NO other way to understand this culture. You have to be an active person to fully understand this culture. 这就是硬核。如果你真想了解,那你一定要做好多功夫。明白我的意思吗?你要自己去研究,看看乐队的音乐、歌词、信念。。。看他们的采访。。。然后要跟特多人聊天儿。。。如果你不出一点努力,你永远不会明白这个文化。这个文化完全适合好主动性格的人。

    If you’re a lazy-natured person…then I truly feel it’ll be hard for you to ever understand this music. To the lazy listener, these are probably the comments you make about hardcore “it sounds like punk rock”, “the music is not even heavy”, “the riffs are so simple”, “the singer is just shouting”…etc., etc. 如果你是比较懒的性格 – 那你看这个文化的看法一样是很懒。懒得人会这样讨论这个音乐:

    1.  “这个音乐太像朋克!”

    2. “这钟音乐不够重!”

    3. “他们的吉他riff都是很简单!”

    4. “主唱的声音很难听。。。”


    Hardcore is so MUCH MORE then any of those things…and like I said, to understand it, you have to get off your ass and do some groundwork to understand it. 硬核就是比较深的文化。。。真想了解,你要努力学习。。。

    I love hardcore with all my heart. 我爱死这个文化。

    It’s so awesome that Joe has been talking about H2O lately…one of my favorite hardcore bands. I remember the first time I saw these guys when I was living in the US going to university. I actually can’t remember who they were touring with…but their singer Toby Morse was so energetic and such a great frontman. He was fucking funny on stage and had all these funny dances…I don’t know if he still does that. I always watch LIVE videos of hardcore bands on youtube, and his on stage “moves” seem different now! hahaha…maybe it’s old age, maybe it’s because he’s a dad now…最近Joe有提我其中最愛的硬核樂隊叫H2o。我還記得我第一次看他們演出我還在美國讀大學。。。應該是96年 – 我忘了他們是支持那個樂隊。反正,他們主唱Toby Morse台風是非常吸引,他的表情他的跳舞方式,他上台說的笑話,全部是特牛逼。。。讓你希望這個樂隊永遠不會下台哈哈哈哈。。。現在他好像沒有以前那個台風(我常喜歡上youtube看我最喜歡硬核樂隊的LIVE片。。。)可能是現在比較老,可能是他當爸爸,等等。。。

    Either way…the album that they released recently called Nothing to Prove is an OUTSTANDING piece of hardcore…the song What Happened? itself has lyrics that encompass everything that people involved in hardcore have been feeling these past few years…反正,他們最近的唱片Nothing to Prove就是一張特代表硬核的唱片。。。只要聽他們的歌What Happened?你感覺到硬核樂隊最近想的什麼。。。

    ANYWAY – I’d like to introduce to you guys something that Toby Morse has been doing this past couple years called One Life, One Chance. Toby has been straight edge is whole life…recently he started doing talks and workshops at schools around America to show kids that being in a rockband doesn’t mean you have to be smoking, drinking and doing drugs! He goes to schools and talked about PMA (Positive Mental Attitude) and being straight edge…這個主唱還有一個特有意義的活動叫One Life One Chance…Toby就是一位straight edge的人。這兩年他開始去很多美國的中學跟那邊的學生開個大會。。。就是跟他們說他的故事 – 一位主唱但是不吸煙,不喝酒,不吸毒,但是還是跟一個很成功的樂隊巡演等等。他有告訴他們一個東西叫PMA – 正面心態。。。

    It’s amazing…是非常牛逼。。。我全心支持這位人。。。

    Here’s the link to find out more and you can check out videos 你們也可以上到他那個網站:

    Below is a photo of a skateboard he released with REAL skateboards…I NEED one!!! 下面他們其中一個產品。。。

    Updated about 200 BLOG posts yesterday…still have maybe 3,000 more to go…我昨天上栽了超過兩百的舊BLOG。。。我還有應該差不多三千多要上載。。。哈哈哈哈。。。

    PEACE and KEEP THAT PMA!!! :-) 繼續PMA!
