  • Fortune Forum 2001

    Posted by Riz Hardcore on May 10, 2001

    I work across the street from the Convention Center in Wan Chai where all the worlds top business delegates are in town for the Fortune forum…which includes people like President Jiang Ze Min and even former President of the states Clinton. Its been insane around this area because Hong Kong has put a lot of security on alert for the next few days. Even when I go outside for lunch sometimes the roads are closed or the walkways are closed because someone famous is driving on the road and they want to keep the road clear so no one tries to kill them. It’s nuts.

    During lunch and after work though, a really cool thing to see is all of Hong Kong’s protestors. I love protestors – especially the protestors who live in Hong Kong. I love them because they prove to the world that their ARE MANY people in Hong Kong who don’t focus on money or a job – a lot of people in Hong Kong actually DO focus on the lives of others less fortunate. Its great to see them yelling and screaming at the Hong Kong Police and other government agents patrolling the area. It has already been a pretty crazy week in Hong Kong here, and the week isn’t over yet!!

    KELY SUPPORT GROUP

    We had tried to advertise this show by writing about it everyday on our website. The show was a charity for an organization called Kely Support Group – an organization that was formed to try to help the youth of Hong Kong deal with alcohol, drugs, depression and life in general. We’re proud supporters of Kely Support Group and were hoping that if we wrote about them daily on our website that people would be interested in coming to the show to support the organization.

    Prior to the show, I got into a little e-mail war with the manager of the bar because I was wondering why they would always schedule us during the day – last year we played at 3pm on a Sunday. It wasn’t a big deal, I just wanted to know why.

    Anyway, that was cleared up later and then I was pretty excited to play the show even though we knew that the show might not actually be that fun because playing in this sort of environment has never been fun for us. But the show’s purpose was more important to us then the environment we were going to be playing in. We seemed to get pretty good responses from people who would read our messages on our website so I thought a lot of people would come to see the show. I think their were 30 people there at most – and most of them were band members of other bands performing.

    A couple days before the show we had asked our temporary drummer to see if we could practice once before the show but all week he was busy practicing with his permanent band…when we played he forgot the end of the song Lik Kit, obviously we should’ve practiced.

    When we got to the show, the guitar amp just didn’t seem right…we like our levels much louder then usual HK bands and I think we demand a lot out of equipment, and sometimes the equipment just can’t handle the levels. That was the case yesterday – I had the amp on full but it still didn’t sound loud enough or clear enough. The vocal amps are nowhere near the stage so we couldn’t hear the vocals…Into the first song Alex broke a bass string…into the second song I broke a guitar string…into the 4th song Ming forgot the ending of the song…by this time the show was over for me. We played like shit – the audience was unresponsive…

    This was a great way to see King Ly Chee at its worst…
