we’ve uploaded the lyrics to our new song “Sisters” to our forum click HERE with this song we hope our sisters in this tiny HK underground music community can truly feel our sincerity in cherishing their support for all of this. they remain a BIG and IMPORTANT ingredient in our scene…anything that happens to them, happens to all of us.
hopefully we’ll record some new demo’s of our newer songs once we’re ready…besides “Sisters” we have 3 more songs that you have not heard yet…vocals aren’t ready that’s why we haven’t played those songs yet…since we don’t have any shows coming up that means we’ll have time to work on getting the vocals and lyrics written for the other songs…by the time we go to Korea i think we’ll have some new things done finally:
1. new website
2. new KLC logo
3. new KLC shirts
4. possibly new demo’s…
when we go to korea in july we are NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT playing any old songs! hahahaha…that is our goal at least…
man – what a great show last night…we did a little tick last night – we wanted to see if you guys would notice that we didn’t play any really old songs. we didn’t know if you guys would not like that – but you guys/girls were great!!! you were ALL singing along to our new songs and moving around…it was awesome…we were SOOOOOOOOO tired by the time it was finally our turn. but you guys/girls must’ve been even MORE tired!!! so we want to thank all of you even MORE because you still waited for us…even though you were all tired, you STILL moved around for us! thank you so much!!! we told the organizer before not to invite too many bands but they didn’t listen…i still think any show with over 5 bands is not a good idea – but no one listens to me. hahahaha…anyway – we do want to thank “bread” for inviting us last night and want to congratulate her for having such a GOOD turnout for the show! woohoo!!! lastly – we really hope that the girls who come to our shows feel safe now…we really hope they understand how much we care about them and their safety…the song “Sister” will always keep you ALL in our hearts…i’ll upload the lyrics later today – i have to wait for Alex to send his lyrics to me…
thank you SO MUCH for supporting our new songs! its so great to see that our new songs STILL can have a STRONG impact on all of you…it makes want to work harder AND faster to finish writing songs and then start recording our next album…thank you again and again…thanks to all the wonderful bands that played last night, and thanks to ALL the other band members whose band did NOT play last night but they STILL came!
Attention to Piss, 218, Milkshake 7, DAS, Evocation, Irresistible Hearts, Subdermal Abrasion, 5 Disciplines, Ablaze, Spermatic Chord, and so many others…thank you so much for supporting this little community! it was an amazing show and it was great to see people that we haven’t seen in a long time come to the show!!! see you all next time…the ATV interview will be on TV in june – i will let you know when…hopefully they got some good video from the show last night!

yo – our brothers in Shepherds the Weak have hooked up a new look to their already new looking website – check the badass out here: www.shepherdstheweak.com also – our brothers in BRAND new HKHC hardcore band called Irresistible Hearts have uploaded a new song to their myspace page: www.myspace.com/irresistablehearts – the time is here for the HKHC…things are looking up…and there’s no holding our scene back! that’s it – back to work…

its late…going to bed…peace
you’re fricking kidding me right? its already may 21! what the hell?!?!?! i have about 3 weeks left of school with all these kids that i’ve begun treat like they’re my own kids. we were watching a movie on friday at school and one child, the same girl that was wearing my HKHC jacket (haha), all of a sudden started had tears coming out of her eyes. she looked at me and said, “Mr. Farooqi – why do i have water coming out of my eyes?” oh my gosh!!! SHE WAS SOOOOOOO CUTE!!! then i gave her a huge hug and asked her if she was sad about something, or if the movie reminded her of something, and she said no…so i just let her sit next to me for the rest of the movie and she felt much better. these little things – i will never forget them and i hope to GOD that when these kids are adults, that they come back to visit so i can share these experiences with them…i love kids – kids are the best…better then adults that’s for sure…last night at the end of year party for our school – i hung out with my third grade teacher! she is still working at the school but this is her last year…i told her that she was the ONLY teacher i remember from my early childhood years – she was very touched by that…she said it was good to hear because you never know what kind of impact you leave on kids or if they even remember who you were.
hey – did you read about the closing of those “dai pai dong’s” in central?!?!?! that SUCKS! i can’t believe the government doesn’t see the value in “dai pai dong’s” and how they’ve been part of HK culture for decades! some of them have been around for 90 years! and they’re licenses will not be removed because those licenses are only valid if family members are alive. that’s so sad…the government finds more value in these ugly IFC buildings – then our street culture like “dai pai dong’s”. sucks…
OH MY GOD!!! if you’re a fan of heavy music (if you’re reading our website and are interested in King Ly Chee, i would assume you ARE a fan of heavy music – but you never know) – GO BUY THE NEW THE RED CHORD ALBUM!!! OH MY GOD!!! its SOOOOOOOOOOO heavy, NOT too technical, and so it has the perfect combination of power, technicality, and anger…the CD is mixed VERY well so the production rules!!! OH MAN!!! i can’t believe how good this is?!?!?! HOLY CRAP!!! SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
GOOD!!! go to Records Rendezvous and get it today!!! SOOO GOOD!!! here’s a link to a song off of the album (the album is called “Clients”): www.hxcmp3.com/theredchord listen to the song called “Antman”…incredible…
so it was buddha’s birthday a couple days ago…i totally forgot and didn’t even realize it until it was too late…oh well – that’s probably we have so much bad luck! hahahaha…we’ve always wondered why KLC attracts the worst of luck, and now we’ve figured it out – cause we never celebrate the buddha’s birthday! alright – i know, you think i’m on crack right now don’t you? no – i have not lost my edge…i’m just insanely sleepy and can’t believe that in our band practice tonight, we started AND finished an idea for a brand new song. how the HELL did that happen? i have no idea – we were all pretty damn surprised…once we got started we just kept going…also – after we were done alex, ming and i had a long chat about an idea for lyrics for one of the songs…pretty cool talk – the talk got kind of heavy…alex is convinced the world is going to end soon – then ming and i (obviously we’d talk about business since we’re the ones that have been working longer then alex has) said that the end of the world won’t be a typical “war” – its going to be a “war” over finance and monetary status and it will come at the end of a fierce competition of who can be the richer country…not power in terms of military, but power in terms of who has more money…crazy talk…but now, if you see lyrics talking about something like this, you’ll know WHERE it started from! okay…going to bed…peace…HAPPY BIRTHDAY BUDDHA!!! please take care of us this year!!!
so some of you figured out what type of dancing i was talking about! its called Capoiera (thanks raymond! …its a form of Brazilian martial arts…SOOO cool to watch…apparently, after i left, Ming stuck around for awhile longer and he learned some new moves! bastard! hahahaha…watch out for both of us in the pit! hahahaha… www.capoeira.com check out the site and look at some of the video’s…they even have magazines for this form of martial arts! i feel so out of touch! hahahaha…finally was able to sit down and read a newspaper yesterday…i feel like its been DAYS since i’ve been able to do that – i HATE HATE HATE HATE being busy…there’s so much going on in the world…SO MUCH…records rendezvous promises me that the new The Red Chord album is going to be in the shop this week!!! HELL YEAH!!! i can’t wait to hear this album…the MP3′s on the metal blade site are already so awesome…also, our good friend Bob has heard the new Throwdown album (i don’t know he does this!!) and he says it sounds boring…but i want to hear it and judge for myself…it really can’t be THAT bad can it? HEY: we’re so excited to tell you guys – we MIGHT be able to play a brand new song at our next show! alex and i are working our asses off to finish the lyrics in time. this song was inspired by the problem that we talked about on our website a few weeks ago. the problem about our sisters at our shows – this was VERY serious issue for the band…we’ve decided that writing a song about it is important so that people are CLEAR about the stance of this band regarding this issue. hopefully the song will be ready…
