    NOTE: our album will NOT be in stores today!!! today was when the album was supposed to be out… :-( oh well…just in case people don’t know – because our label took too long to return some important paperwork to our distributor/manufacturers of the CD, the CD will not be released today. because our label took so long, the actual production of the CD’s only started on friday. we hope that it will be released some time this week, but we don’t know anything yet. anyway: did any of you guys listen to the 組band時間 (zhou band si gan) interview last night? it was on MUCH earlier then i thought!! SUCKS!!! it was on at like 6pm instead of 8pm – i don’t know if Inti has changed the show time but i wasn’t aware of it…anyway – our good friend and SUPER reliable friend Yoshaki recorded the show for us so you can check it out by clicking HERE for PART 1 and HERE for PART 2. if you have time please check it out and let us know what you think of the songs!…the weather is SO nice and cold here!!! i love it!!! god…i went with my girlfriend to the area around Statue Square last night and it looks SO great!!! they’ve decorated that WHOLE area with Christmas ornaments and lights etc…it looks amazing…really Christmasy…really helps get you into the whole warm spirit of christmas…aiya – i wish our album was out today…hopefully it’ll be out this time next week…have a nice sunday everyone…

    sorry guys…still no new news. i called our distribution company yesterday to find out about when the album will be in stores…but they never called me back. so is life. anyway – please go out and buy PM Magazine and MCB – our interviews were released yesterday! of course, being the efficient person that i am…i’ve already uploaded the interviews to our website. so you can check them out there…but we do hope that you will go out and buy them. when you buy these magazines you are supporting them and thanking them for supporting us and other underground bands. CLICK HERE to check them out…the Young Post also ran part 1 of an interview with us yesterday! the reporter was nice enough to send us an Adobe Acrobat file of the article…please also click above to check it out. Part 2 of this interview will appear in the Young Post on monday!!! can’t believe we were in three different media in ONE day…crazy…wish our label was as efficient as we are. anyway…more news hopefully soon…i just found out that the guy i voted for last week in Hong Kong’s district board elections, won! that’s pretty cool and again emphasizes my point that EVERYONE can make a difference. the guy i voted for had a very TOUGH race because he was running against the person that was the district board member for Tsim Sha Tsui for the past 12 years! imagine running against someone like that! but as i’m sure you know, the results from this election have been in favor for pro-democracy parties…anyway…have a nice day and weekend. for the past month i have been so excited about today – because our album should’ve been released tomorrow and i was going to write an amazing message. but oh well…i’m going to have to hold that message until next week. if you have time – check out 903 radio tonight at 8pm…i think Inti is going to play ALL of the songs that will be on our album tonight. don’t mind my voice please – remember that we did the interview AFTER the disaster show on monday and i was in no mood to do an interview. anyway…let us know what you think of the songs after…see ya.

    good news – bad news…which one would you like to read first? the good news i guess – i’ve uploaded one of the interviews that we’ve done recently – its up now in the PRESS section. its the BC mag interview – its super well written and we’re proud of having someone like Joyce (the reporter for BC) on our side helping us along the way. i also uploaded a short Milk interview that they did with me. they asked me to try this new STUPID product for them and to give them my comments. they totally CHANGED what i said – i said, “this is a terrible product. this is NOT fun at all and i would NEVER suggest anyone buy this product”. they changed it but oh well – it was still nice that they included some sentences about our album coming out. (what a great way to tie into the bad news…) now for the fucking horrible annoying full of shit bad news – as we’ve come to expect from our label – because of their inefficiency and unreliable nature, the album will NOT be released on time. they took too long returning a contract that they had to sign to our distribution/manufacturing company and so now the CD’s haven’t even been pressed. that means the CD have NOT even been made yet…i talked to the distribution company yesterday and they said that the fastest they can do it is next week. we’ve done so many interviews and people always ask us, “so what feelings do you guys have now that your CD is coming out?”. our first response is always, “TENSE! nervous!”. the reporter will ask, “why is that?”. we say, “because we’re scared that because of our label, the CD won’t come out on time”. i can’t believe we were actually right…even when you listen to “Zhou Band Si Gan” tomorrow night, you can hear me say it. again – i can’t believe i was right. we’ve gotten so used to them disappointing us that there really isn’t anything we can do anymore. that’s just their style and i’ve come to accept it. this has been a bad week for us – monday night we played a horrible show and wasted so MANY people’s time, then wednesday night my amp died while Guan 36 was practicing, and then yesterday we find out that our label made a BIG mistake and now our album won’t come out on time. lovely isn’t it? in english their is a saying, “when it rains – it pours” (chinese its: 禍不單行 / 屋漏兼逢連夜雨 (supplied by my awesome girlfriend :-) . still – the strength of King Ly Chee is, even if things go bad to worse and everyday some OTHER bullshit happens to us – we can always just close our eyes and look at the BIGGER picture. looking at our own lives and the fact that we can actually spend our time PLAYING music – is already such a luxury. we are grateful that in our lives we were blessed to be able to have a day job that helps us have money to do things that we want to do. when we look at the lives of SO MANY other people in this world, who have to beg on the floor of dirty and unhygienic conditions for enough money to buy a piece of bread – the stuff that happens to us is NOT something bad at all. anyway…i still feel angry right now but there’s nothing we can do. the album will come out next week for sure. the date will be changed – but it will still come out. it still needs your help and faith…please continue to believe in it. this is all we have…

    down to 3 days left boys and girls…women and children…old and young…Ngang Sum (Stand Strong) is going to be unleashed on the innocent people of Hong Kong who are so used to Sammi, Andy Lau, Edison, Yumiko, Yong Joe Yi, Tse Ting Fung that they will NOT understand King Ly Chee at all. i wish i could be there when they all hear Ngang Sum for the very first time – i want to see their reaction. the look of disgust on their faces would amuse me so much. they will just throw the headphones down on the floor and say, “this is called music?! are you crazy!”. :-) oh well…like i said yesterday – you can’t please EVERYBODY with the music or lyrics that you create. you can ONLY be true to yourself – as long as you’re being sincere in the art that you create, people with at least half a brain will at least respect that. sincerity is one of the most beautiful characteristics a human can have – its so attractive to me. ANYWAY: 3 days…and counting! i just uploaded the FREE CD release ticket that will appear INSIDE our album – its uploaded above! look out for it! its bright red on purpose…also – just to make it clear – i did NOT design this. if i designed it, it DEFINITELY would not look this lame. anyway…peace…keep spreading the word everyone!!!

    i received this message in the KLC email box yesterday: “fuck you – why don’t you kill yourself when you’re depressed”. pretty good message right? does this person show that he’s someone capable of having a mature and an intelligent conversation? i don’t know about you – but when i listen to music, i can be depressed sometimes, i can be angry sometimes, i can be happy, excited or just feel lonely – like the world doesn’t understand me. that’s the PURE power of music – no matter what kind of mood you’re in, there is ALWAYS a type of music, or one song, or lyrics that will COMFORT you. sometimes music can provide comfort better then your own family or friends. so – for the idiot who sent that message to us…i really hope you succeed in finding the RIGHT type of music for you. maybe King Ly Chee is not the music that fits your personality and the things you care about, but i am 100% certain there is SOME sort of music out there that will make you feel complete. at least try to keep an open mind…thanks for your message…ANYWAY: 4 more days until the album is out! i don’t think we’ll be able to see what it looks like before you guys! when you guys go to the shops on Sunday to buy the album, we will be there too to see what they look like! :-) i think this week 2 interviews will be out – one in PM Magazine and one in BC Magazine. please check them out to find out more information about this album! also…i went to HMV last night and checked out a UK magazine called Dazed and Confused. we answered some stupid questions for them over the summer and it’s printed in the December issue of this magazine. i didn’t buy it because its a waste of money. they only printed like one or two sentences and a really stupid photo of us. i don’t suggest you guys buy it…but i just thought i’d mention it. i think MCB and Milk will run King Ly Chee album advertisements this week…i think…check and let us know if they’re there. UPDATED: LYRICS page with lyrics for Your Heart of Gold (this song, unfortunately, is NOT on the album), PUNK/HARDCORE/METAL looking for members page, and as usual the messageboard has new GREAT messages uploaded – this is one of my favorite pages on our website! :-)

    fucking shit show – organized by morons and the sound was done by a company that i think should really think about changing their business. they canNOT do sound and should leave this field immediately. it was so sad because when we got on stage, i couldn’t BELIEVE how many people came to see us play. there were SO MANY people there and you need to remember, the fucking venue was SO hard to find!!! i couldn’t find it myself and i had to take a taxi instead. also, the stupid show was early and so there were SO MANY kids that came to the show STRAIGHT from school!!! it was so incredible to see all these people who normally come to our bandshows, but because it was a schoolday they were still in their school uniforms! once again, the people who support KLC touched me beyond belief. it made my heart hurt so much to not be able to put on a good show for all these people that came to our show. the whole night after i felt like absolute shit – because it felt like we let people down. it looked like a lot of people really just wanted to go crazy and have a good time. but they couldn’t get into the show either because of the sound. and how could they? fuck man – I MYSELF couldn’t get into the show!!! we played the new song last night and it didn’t feel as explosive as its supposed to sound. how can i expect other people get into it? anyway – after the show i just wanted to go home…go home and sleep and forget about it (this was going to be our only show before our CD release and we didn’t even get to talk about the CD on stage. that’s how much the sound effected our moods.)…but instead of being able to go home we had to go straight to 903 radio to do an interview. i didn’t talk at all during the interview and Inti kept asking me what was wrong. i felt bad and i apologized to her after we finished and explained to her what happened. i explained to her that i take shows VERY VERY seriously because i don’t like disappointing people. especially people who come ESPECIALLY to see us perform, people who travel from really far to come, people who don’t even go home to change and come straight from school or work…it just hurts my heart too much when i disappoint them…anyway – thank you SO MUCH from the bottom of MY HEART and my ENTIRE SOUL for coming to the show last night! seeing all your beautiful and caring faces from the stage was so great…i could see in your eyes that you all really WANTED to enjoy the show…i wish i could say that next time would be better – but we all know that we can’t guarantee anything. i’ve uploaded some news that MAYBE some of you guys will think is interesting – unless you have given up on watching KLC live – we have finally confirmed a CD release show…on December 25, 2003 we will have our CD release show…tickets for this show are free and are ONLY available INSIDE the CD…please spread this news…once again, sorry about the show last night – that is now 2 shows in a row.
