NEW KING LY CHEE SONGS ARE UP NOW!!!
please keep in mind these songs were ALL recorded IN OUR BANDROOM!!! NOT in a studio…so if it doesn’t sound perfect – please understand! thanks…
here’s a fun photo of my volunteer work with some south asian kids in HK…my girlfriend and i have been volunteering to help take care of kids who come from poor backgrounds in HK. they are SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO cute!!! there are two Nepalese girls who are quite possibly the cutest girls in the world (both 6 years old)…so cute…this is me teaching all the kids a hand clapping game that i learned from my kids at my school!
alright – as you have seen from one of our intro pages (yes i know there are too many – we have 3 now…but i can’t get rid of any of those – they all mean so much to us…) – we are FINALLY going to be uploading two new songs! the songs are called “Detach Me” and “Terror”! woohoo…unfortunately for us, we already have two even NEWER songs but it will take awhile before we record those. ANYWAY – the songs were recorded in our own bandroom with stuff that we’ve bought – sounds pretty good we think! but please don’t expect it to sound like a regular recording studio. a few times i was recording a quiet vocal part and someone was using the bathroom and you can hear the flushing on the recording! hahahaha…so i’d have to record it again. ANYWAY – we can’t wait for you guys/girls to check it out…we’re mixing it all ourselves and since we’re NOT using a computer to do this – its a bit harder but fun at the same time. ALSO: looks like we have a show on May 28th…WOOHOO! its back at the warehouse – (i feel like this is slowly becoming the ONLY place we play but oh well…) we’ll obviously be playing these new songs then…alright – going to bed…seeya…check out the forum – i uploaded a great video by an awesome korean hardcore band called Vassline…also Avenged Sevenfold’s new song has also been linked on our forum…
THANKS TO ALL OF YOU WHO HAVE POSTED YOUR Idea’s ON OUR FORUM!!! it is SO helpful to hear your views…it is SO helpful to hear the views ESPECIALLY of our sisters in the audience. your thoughts are the most important because this is all about YOU – making sure you FEEL safe, making sure that you FEEL like everyone is respecting you…that is the whole point.
we are ESPECIALLY thankful for comments from those girls who had this type of terrible experience -
YOU ARE VERY BRAVE TO TALK ABOUT IT!!!
thank you for doing this – hopefully you understand, that by talking about this – we are ALL hopefully making sure this doesn’t happen again.
the best idea’s on the forum seem to be:
1) Girls should come to shows with guy friends
2) The Breakdown Squad are going to be the PEOPLE that ANYONE can come to for help in the pit…all our Breakdown Squad brothers and sisters are King Ly Chee’s VERY CLOSE friends – they are a part of King Ly Chee so we TRUST them like we TRUST each other in the band.
*i especially like the point, that even if you DON’T know the breakdown squad people, please do not be shy to just stand next to them – i think even if you just stand next to them, it will help. like we have said – our breakdown squad brothers/sisters are all close friends – they ALL have big hearts and care about all of you.
the most important thing now is to make sure that all our sisters still feel safe in the audience…hopefully when they see the audience has MANY Breakdown Squad people there, then they SHOULD feel safe…
OKAY – as i’ve promised here’s what i want to talk about…this is important so instead of me using my horrible chinese to type it out, i’ve asked my sweet girlfriend to write this:
近日收到一女仔投訴在band show 中遭胸襲 — 不是普通的碰撞，而是擺明車馬的伸出魔爪﹗﹗﹗ 對於這種無恥行為，我們感到非常的震驚及憤怒﹗﹗﹗
很多朋友都視看band show為一個正面發泄情緒的方法， 而大家之所以能夠玩得盡情、玩得安心是我們相信圍繞身邊的都是「自己人」。 現在竟然發現有人利用在音樂聲浪很大、人很多或大家情緒高漲的時候去佔女仔的便宜﹗
King Ly Chee 懇請各位兄弟幫忙「睇住」各位姐妹，令渾水摸魚的無恥之徒無法得逞﹗
after our last show – i received an SMS message from a girl who was at our show. (the same show that someone got hurt in…) she sent me a message saying that she did not want to trouble me but she wanted to tell me something that happened to her.
while she was watching the show having fun with friends, she noticed a boy with a hat standing too close to her. so she moved, when she moved he followed her again. then the boy started to put his arms around her and touch her.
THIS WHOLE BAND IS SO ANGRY AND UPSET ABOUT THIS
i have heard other stories about this happening and it usually happens at bigger shows.
THIS IS OUR STANCE:
we are all part of one big family and everyone at our shows are our brother and sister. when we look into the audience we see faces of our family releasing their emotions in a positive way. everyone is ABLE to do this because we all feel SAFE around each other. we feel SAFE because we have TRUST in each other…
once the trust is broken – the show is finished.
we have always trusted our family in the audience to protect each other. but we’ve now realized that sometimes, the music is too loud, or there are too many people, or everyone is so “high”, that a very important part of our family, the girls, are being taken advantage of.
i am here now to BEG all of our brothers in the audience to please watch out for our sisters. we want to make sure our sisters ARE safe in the audience. we know that the brothers who come to our show, are there to support the band and the message. they are not there to do some stupid shit.
THE WHOLE BAND BEGS YOU in the audience to please watch out for our sisters…if anything happens then try to give us a signal in between the songs!!!
WE LOOK FORWARD TO HEARING YOUR IDEAS ON OUR FORUM – please click HERE here to post your IDEAS (we are not looking for comments – we need your ideas of what people can do)…
昨天我去了Queen Elizabeth醫院探受傷者…一見到我他開始笑!!! 哈哈哈…我還記得我們跳下台問他怎麼樣, 他只跟我說”好yeh! 我聽日可以放假!” anyway – 他broke his collar bone！他說我不要擔心…但是當然我還緊張因為我對我們的支持者特有責任感…我當每一個支持者都是我兄弟姐妹…所以我一定會擔心..(那場show發生另外一件事, 令到我非常不開心…我幾天後會跟你們說)…for now, we are very happy that he is okay and is laughing about it! 他有跟我說, 他想stagedive的時候問了台前面的人 – 可是真的跳出去沒有人接他…這是一個大問題…看到人上了台,大家應該知道那位人幹嗎 – 肯定想stagedive…PLEASE: 留意上了台的人…ALSO: 想stagedive的人也要留意台下的人, 留意他們準備好沒有接你…
alright…for those who weren’t at the show last night…in our second song, someone jumped off the stage and got hurt…he stagedived and no one caught him…then he was out and hurt his arm and leg…the show had to be cut because the organizers got into trouble by the managers of the Hall…we all feel very bad for the organizers because they were trying SO hard to make the show fun for everyone. it makes us sad, when people say “fuck you” to organizers who are TRYING SO HARD to help everyone. so, TO THE ORGANIZERS – we are VERY THANKFUL for EVERYTHING you ALL were trying to do to make the show fun. people need to remember – MANY TIMES, its NOT the organizers who are making the decisions. last night, the managers of the hall were being very tough on the organizers. ANYWAY: the guy that got hurt, his name is Zhun Chai and he had to be taken to the hospital. we don’t know if he’s okay right now. hopefully he’s alright, he was smiling by the end of the show so hopefully he’s okay. FOR PEOPLE WHO WANT TO STAGEDIVE 喜歡stagedive的朋友!!! PLEASE PLEASE remember 請注意- 如果你想stagedive, 你有記住準備的人接你!!! 如果我們的支持者不是安全那這是一個很大的問題…所以玩開心的時候最重要是小心一點…BEFORE you stagedive make sure people are READY to catch you!!! PLEASE!!! you NEED to be careful!!! don’t just jump out and EXPECT people will catch you…you must get people ready…oh well…anyway – bad night…最後想說: 對不起大家…對不起昨天晚上的organizers…對不起我們之後的樂隊 – 他們沒有機會表演…我們非常希望昨天晚上受傷的人今天沒有事…sorry to everyone who came to the show especially to watch us play and who wanted to sing along with us…:-( we are very sorry for everything that happened last night! please accept our apologies…
show tonight – rock n’ roll…our brothers Ian and Heng are going to be helping us do roadie work today so we’re SO excited for their help!! THANKS GUYS!!! can’t wait to play…there are a lot of awesome bands playing: blackwine, a’z and our hardcore brothers shepherds the weak…should be fun even though each band only has like 20 minutes to play including set up…alright – going to see you there…all the information for the show can be found on our website under that awesome photo on the left or just click HERE!!!…lastly, check out this awesome art work that a girl on our forum made after getting inspiration from our song refuse!!! its awesome:CHECK IT OUT!!!
wei…show tomorrow!!! all our Breakdown Squad friends and family – get yourselves fucking ready!!! we don’t have another show for awhile so come and scream, dance, mosh your hearts out…we can’t wait to see all of you tomorrow! we were supposed to play a show on the 28th but there’s no way we can…Ming has been working OT until 1am almost every night for the past two weeks…there’s no way we can make it to a show on a Thursday night with transporting all our equipment from our bandroom and bringing it back…unfortunately, the purpose of the show is awesome as its a charity for the Tsunami victims. we’ve pleaded with the organizers to change the date to a saturday so that MORE people would be able to come out to check out the show. the organizers want to change it too but since they’re just students at an international school, the real bosses are their teachers who don’t want to change the date. so the teachers are adamant about keeping the show on a thursday when most people won’t be able to travel all the way out to this school to support the show. oh well…we tried our best to play this show…we do have to say thank you to Samm for thinking about us and inviting us to be a part of this show…SOOOOOOOOOOOOO – back to what i was talking about – we have a show tomorrow! no excuses…we are going to try to squeeze 5 songs in – but that means we can’t talk in between the songs! hahahaha…so if we don’t talk – you understand that’s because we just want to play more songs!!! the order of the songs are:
Intro (武自兵團Breakdown Squad)
3. Detach Me
we are playing at 8:45 or something like that…we have no idea – its early though because we all have to work the next day. Ming will probably have to go back to work that day…ANYWAY: check it out – our good friends in HK hip hop group: Fama have just released a new record!!! its on sale now for only $80…its awesome…go get it! congratulations guys for releasing a new record!!! hope it does well!!!
yo…just enjoying me week off from my studies…have a one week break and my next class starts on tuesday…i’ve heard from others who are taking the same master’s course that i am, that this next class is crazy…lots and lots of work…great…anyway – show in a couple days! woohoo!!! the organizers are new to organizing shows – so like all inexperienced organizers, they’ve invited over 10 bands to play within 3 hours. so that obviously means that each band will only be able to play like 3 or 4 songs…its going to be short but sweet…hopefully we’ll see you all there…mosh and mayhem! woohoo…lovely…ANYWAY: someone uploaded the new Comeback Kid video up on our forum…check it out – SOOOO good…i finally bought the Thrice CD/DVD from Records Rendezvous – dude…that is one LONG DVD!!! its crazy…thrice has been around 6 years – the same amount of time that we’ve been around…i remember having a conversation with our good friend Trigger from 5 Disciplines two weeks ago where she said, “imagine if you guys actually lived in the States, with the way you guys work (non-stop), imagine where you’d be by now…”… this is something i think about all the time. i don’t even care about money – i just can’t imagine what tours we would’ve been on by now. in the Thrice DVD, they talk about the very first time they went on tour with their hero’s Hot Water Music, Coheed and Cambiria and other bands and how they became good friends with all these bands that they used to love like fans…oh well…we’re stuck in HK where bands fade out and hope is the only thing we have…we’ll never be able to achieve things that we only wish we could – never be able to achieve things that we dream about every night…but we won’t give up…its easy to say we won’t give up because we’re all still young – one day when we’re married with kids, who knows what’s going to happen…
