我想今天的message送給趙紫陽。。。even in his death, one man can scare the massive Communist Party to the point where HUGE security measures needed to be arranged for his funeral – undignified…placed in a smaller room of the funeral hall…attended by a STRICT STRICT list of people…during his funeral many others who lived in Beijing were placed under house arrest because the government was in fear of another protest from the public…no matter what, whether 趙紫陽 is alive or dead – the government lives in fear…even in his death – the eulogy given HAD to say that he made mistakes. eulogies are usually left to celebrate someone’s life – negative comments are usually left out of RESPECT for the person’s life. after all, 趙紫陽 was a party leader – but even death he isn’t given the respect any other party leader would’ve been given…it was a sad funeral – even though i was nowhere near it – sitting here in HK and watching the grainy images of it on TV (all media were banned from filming it) and reading about it in today’s newspapers put me in a very somber mood…if you were old enough to remember June 4 – please take some time today to think about this incredible man’s life – someone who even in his old age of 85 was still under house arrest for siding with his conscience in favor of the students…i wouldn’t be surprised if this website was blocked today – the government is VERY sensitive about this man’s passing…
cool – a week from today is our first show with Ming!! i can’t believe how fast he’s learned so many of our songs…poor guy has had to work 100 times as hard to get all the parts down! and let me tell you – its no easy task working with me or andy who remember EVERY single beat and will gladly point out parts that weren’t perfect! sorry ming!!! hahahaha…the dude probably hates us by now but is such a cool guy that he probably doesn’t care how retarded andy and i can be! hahahaha…but the whole band agrees, the most amazing so far has been Bong – Bong is our new bass player and is NOT a bass player! he’s actually a guitar player and unlike Ming, who has played with us before, Bong has never jammed with KLC before. so for him to pick up the bass, learn the songs, feel the bass, play along AS WELL AS help us write parts for songs!!!, its unbelievable how far he has come!!! we’ve only been jamming for 2 or so weeks with these guys…its a lot of pressure for them to learn so many songs SO fast!!! so please encourage them both!!! thanks guys!!! we can’t wait til April 2 to play our first show as the new and improved King Ly Chee!!! i LOVE The Bled by the way…good band…
yo yo yo…check it out: 我們的好朋友Hardpack finally 有一個新網頁﹗﹗﹗ our good friends Hardpack finally have a new website! check it out here: www.hardpack.net 我們另外的好朋友﹕Shepherds the Weak 也有一個新網頁﹐ our other good friends Shepherds the Weak also have a new website click here: http://shepherdstheweak.qn.com ENJOY!!!
我們的特手蕫建華is in a lot of trouble AGAIN! more and more proof is coming out that the government will gladly bend over BACKWARDS for big businesses without consulting the public…the new harbor reclamation project, and now information about the Cyberport…the majority of the public has known this for years – but lawmakers are finally receiving the proof they need…蕫先生﹕你還有兩年﹐ 你為什想這樣end你的rule? you’re going to leave being one of HK’s most despised people.
好的。。。現在是早上六點半。。。我就想通知你們﹕我們四月那場show的opening bands是confirmed!!! WOOHOO!!! 他們是﹕
Shepherds the Weak
King Ly Chee
the opening bands have been confirmed for the show in April!!! they’ll be the above 4 bands!!! i haven’t seen Evocation in a LONG time and i’ve talked to their singer – he’s going to see if he can send an mp3 of one of their songs to us! WOOHOO!!! alright…現在我要上班。。。再見﹗﹗﹗
wow! 很多人說上來我們這個website然後看到中文覺得好奇怪﹗哈哈哈﹗﹗﹗以後發現全部是我寫的﹐覺得更加奇怪﹗﹗﹗okay okay…我知道我昨天打錯了字。。。我昨天想說”一起唱﹐一起mosh,…”。。。對不起了。。。anyway – we didn’t realize that our next show is NEXT saturday! 我們下一場表演是下個禮拜六﹗﹗﹗ what the hell!!! that is pretty damn soon! its a good thing that ming is a hard-working freak – the dude practices all the time…i can’t believe both ming and pong have already picked up 5 songs and working on the 6th one now…don’t be surprised if you find a few changes in some of the songs! woohoo…okay – 又一點點累所以我先說再見。。。明天見﹗還想說﹐我學校的普通話老師今天借給我一個英中文的字典﹗woohoo﹗
大家好﹗這是荔枝王的riz﹗﹗﹗我的女朋友剛剛幫我download這個很方便的中文software!!! 可是﹐因為我不會打廣東話的拼音我要打普通話的中文﹗﹗﹗哈哈哈。。。ok – ok…我的中文不是太好所以很多事情我想說﹐我說不了﹗﹗對不起﹗ 可是我還想試一試﹗ 好不好﹖:-) 我現在再想上個禮拜六的show我真的覺得非常開心﹗﹗﹗ 真的謝謝你們的支持。。。我自己表達不到我心裡面的感覺。。。每次看你們跟我們一次唱﹐一次玩﹐一次mosh﹐一次stagedive。。。是一個非常 unbelievable的感覺﹗﹗﹗我有留意每場show有多幾個女人跟我們一次唱﹗比方說﹐看到她們唱”refuse” 這首歌是我自己一個最滿意的感覺﹗﹗﹗我記得寫這首歌的歌詞的時候是為她們。所以看到她們唱這首歌我覺得達到我們的目標 – 雖然她們不是唱我的歌詞 -通常大家喜歡唱alex and Kit 的歌詞﹗ 哈哈哈﹗可是沒關係…anyway…謝謝你們OVER AND OVER!!! 我們下次的show是二月五日. 這場是我們新的鼓手(Ming) 第一場show…我覺得他 是一點點緊張﹐ 所以我們希望你們可以幫我們鼓勵他﹗ 好不好? 我們新的bass手(Pong) 的第一場show是我們四月作的show! can’t wait!!! 好的好的 – 我現在太累了因為寫中文是非常難﹗我現在有一點頭痛﹗﹗哈哈哈。。。我想睡覺﹗ ﹗再見﹗
wei…what an incredible night last night! i’m sure for kevin, it was one of the best ways to end his tour of duty with King Ly Chee! it was so weird – both kevin and i noticed that the Warehouse was where he played his first show with us 2 and a half years – and the Warehouse was where he played his last show with us! we meant to play new songs last night – but we didn’t play any because we were DEAD tired! so we cut out ALL our new songs and played She and Refuse to end the set…you guys/girls were so wonderful last night – that’s all i have to say…at the end of the show, saying goodbye to our bro Kevin was weird! it was like he was leaving HK or something like that! hahahaha…anyway – we wish our brother the best of luck and feel there are going to be some amazing things in his future! OKAY – now the moment has come where we can “officially” announce our new drummer and some news that may come as a shock to some of you unless you’ve been reading the forum and have already found out about it:
please join the rest of King Ly Chee to welcome BACK our brother Ming to King Ly Chee! for those who don’t know, Ming was actually KLC’s second drummer way back when…he had to leave the band because his THEN band, Fat Job, weren’t happy about him playing in two bands. but now he’s a free agent and he has joined King Ly Chee! we’re so excited to have him back in King Ly Chee and hope all of you can PLEASE welcome into the band by posting some “welcome” messages on our forum. just to let you know, the guy is SUPER nervous about filling Kevin’s shoes…Ming doesn’t think he has what it takes to be King Ly Chee’s drummer – but we ALL believe in him greatly, and in a year or so he’s going to be insane…
now for the stranger yet SUPER exciting news: in our goal to become tighter LIVE, we’ve decided that its come to that point in life where we need alex to make a choice of either playing bass ONLY, or going to vocals ONLY…he has decided to stick to vocals and therefore, we needed to find a bass player. ENTER – our DEAR sweet brother Ah Pong! this is the same Pong that has taken every SINGLE one of our incredible LIVE photos and the same Pong that plays guitar for Guan 36. some more trivia for you guys…when Ming left KLC the first time – we actually asked Pong to join us on drums! hahahaha…that’s how MUCH we’ve always wanted Pong to be a part of King Ly Chee – this dude is PURE hardcore – that’s all he gives a shit about and that’s where his heart is – he’s PERFECT for us! the problem is, he’s not really a bass player – he plays guitar…but he wants to be a part of KLC so bad that he’s picked up bass and is working his ass off…
SO PLEASE WELCOME OUR BROTHERS Pong and Ming to the King Ly Chee family!!
this is yet ANOTHER new chapter in our bands never-ending story… we’re excited about our future and hope all of you will continue to offer the same love and support to our new KLC brothers!
thank you again so much for last night! it was beautiful – a wonderful way to close one of the best chapters in our lives!
dude – i’m so exhausted this week!!! i can’t wait to go to sleep tonight peacefully…i feel like this week just won’t end…so much to do everyday – my email inbox is just getting more and more full of emails that i don’t have the time to reply to! it sucks! i’m NEVER like that – normally if i get an email, i reply right away…right now have an email inbox full of interview questions that i haven’t had the time to answer, and requests from zines for articles that i haven’t had time to write…IT SUCKS!!! i feel like i need a long break to get my damn life in order…okay – enough self-pity…all this stuff has been going on in HK because Zhao Zi Yang passed away this week – and i even had time to read about it…i suck!!! pity pity…blah blah blah…some records that you need to listen to right NOW: With Honor, Unearth, Love is Red, Comeback Kid…these records RULE my life!!! so good…i finally just go the Norma Jean record – and i don’t know what the big deal is with this band. i can’t stand the record – i’ve listen to it a couple times and i can’t get into it…have you seen the Hellfest video of them? turns me off of those dudes even more…
