  • NEW YEAR’S EVE

    Posted by Riz Hardcore on December 31, 2008

    So the end of another momentous year in King Ly Chee land has come to an end…started off awesome with the release of the Unite Asia EP…playing in front of 24,000 people in the Philippines, playing with Comeback Kid!!!!, losing 3 members, playing an unbelievable show in Laguna (Philippines), gaining a new member, and writing songs…这个年底终于到了。。。今年真的是一个很重要的一年。。。今年的开头我们出了亚洲起义的EP。。。真的是一个很兴奋的事情。。。然后去了菲律宾在二万多人面前演出, 跟comeback kid演出,三个成员离队,找到一个新成员,开始写特多新歌。。。

    As always KLC land is marred with problems and a negative world where people hate us and especially me with a supreme vengeance. it’s quite interesting…brian last night said “you’ve got to be the one person in HK that has the MOST enemies” and I answered probably…some of these people may have a legitimate reason to hate me because I am an asshole when it comes to my band. But some of these people don’t even know me or have had any interaction with me – so their reason to hate me is? No idea. 当然荔枝王的每一年有很多问题。。。今年当然有很多了。。。我们的环境有特多人真的挺恨我们这个乐队。。。更多人恨我。。。对我报复。。。有些人真的有道理恨我因为我对我乐队真的有很高要求。。。可是有些人都不认识我而且每有跟我聊过天 – 他们怎么可能对我有那么严的感觉呢?

    Anyway – a few nights ago we took new SFS crew photos…it was nice to see that 10 years ago when I started SFS it was just one person doing it…now we have 6 in STW involved, plus the 3 in KLC involved, plus we have Chai involved, plus we have our street team members Matt and Sue involved…it’s nice to see something that just started by one person be taken on by so many others…反正我们几天前拍了新由零开始成员的照片。。。拍的时候我真的特开心。。。因为十年前由零开始就是一个人开始。。。现在有STW全乐队的进入了还有荔枝王的三个人还有chai还有我们由零开始的Street Team的成员Matt and Sue…真的开心慢慢这个活动加了多很多很有诚意的人。。。最重要是全部有诚意想做正面的东西出来。。。我们这几个人没有兴趣说什么闲话的废话。。。

    It’s been a tough year as always…but a lot of momentous stuff happened…both good and bad…当然是一个很幸苦的一年。。。可是有很多好的东西发生而且有很多不好的东西发生。。。

    Next year we begin with uploading a couple demos, hopefully that will inspire Mike to help us just start recording our album…but the problem is that once we record and release our album we ALL WANT to tour – but we can’t get Mike to do that for us because he’s a busy person plus STW is his true love. We really need our OWN drummer…who knows when and if that’ll happen. Of course we have to say that we really appreciate his support for us and wanting to help us any time we need help. And of course we have to thank our brothers in STW for also standing by us and helping us in our time of need…Without those dudes who knows where our band would be right now… 明年我们会介绍两手新歌的demo…开始这两首歌的时候很希望mike突然会有兴趣继续帮我们录音!如果他有兴趣的话哪我们可以马上开始新 album!!! 可是问题是。。。我们出了album之后全乐队会想巡演 – 到处巡演。。。可是mike的热情是在他的心里最关心的乐队STW…所以我们没有什么道理叫他帮我们巡演。。。他真的是一个非常忙的鼓手。。。可是我们特感激他的支持。。。还有很感激全部STW的兄弟的支持。。。.

    But next year I’m certain we’ll release our album..可是我觉得很肯定可以跟大家说。。。我们明年应该终于可以出我们新album…出了之后谁会帮我们演出还不清楚。。。.

    Happy new year everyone!!! Good luck to all of you who are using your time and energy to do something POSITIVE in your lives!!! 新年快乐大家!大家加油。。。继续努力为你们所正面的活动!!!

    PEACE

  • BUSY NIGHT

    Posted by Riz Hardcore on December 30, 2008

    Just got home (3am) from a busy night…the night started off with me going to our bandroom to record rough demo vocals for 3 songs…I was using my laptop to record the vocals so they don’t sound perfect…but good enough for Ho and Brian to listen to the rhythms and lyrics etc…very happy with these songs though!!! Includes the new version of My Family which frickin’ rules!! We’ve sent the demos over to Mike of STW so he can help us record drums for two of these songs soon!!! Can’t wait to have him record drums for us! 刚才到了家里。。。今天晚上真的玩的特好。。。我先去了band房录三首歌的demo vocals…我只用了我的laptop所以录出来的声音不是最理想可是就是给Brian和Ho听所以没事。。。我真的特爱我们的新歌。。。My Family的新版本挺好听。。。我们已经e了几首歌给mike听听。。。他应该会准备好帮我们录鼓!!!特期待他帮我们录鼓!

    Then we did an interview and shot a SFS crew photo late at night in a parking lot which was fun. The interview was cool because it was an interview about how SFS started and it was nice to talk about the 10 years that I’ve spent doing SFS and KLC..然后我们做了一个访问。。。是关于由零开始和荔枝王。。。然后去了跟全部由零开始的人拍照。。。访问有意思因为是关于我这十年跟由零开始和荔枝王所做的东西。。。那么快到十年!!!好奇怪。。。

    Then Chai, me and Ho went to go watch Ip Man!!! OH MY GOD!!! THIS MOVIE IS AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Such a great movie…actors were great, the story was of course incredible especially since it’s all based on a true story…great GREAT movie..然后我跟chai和ho去了看新电影“葉问”!!!! 挺挺挺挺好看!!!如果你还没看快点过去看看!!!!!!!真的特好看。。。

    最后希望大家会用点儿时间想一想在巴勒斯坦所发生的事。。。特可惜。。。已经有三百多人死忙。。。就是给以色列屠杀。。。Lastly…I hope everyone can take some time to think about the hell that is going on in Palestine these past few days…over 300 people have already died…the slaughter will continue…

  • DECEMBER 29

    Posted by Riz Hardcore on December 29, 2008

    i can’t believe that benazir bhutto is dead…what the hell…the country that i’m from is completely in chaos…why when india just next door is developing so fast we can’t get our country’s people to work together for the better of the whole country. instead we fight with each other…instead we kill each other…assassinate each other…the rich in this country own everything and run everything…while the poor just get poorer and poorer…after this meaningless killing it just shows this country is still not ready to move ahead…there are too many stupid idiots who live in this country that want the country to be left lawless, there are parts of this country that are totally lawless…and they want it this way…

    totally in shock…another black day in the history of our country…

    昨天巴基斯坦的稍息令我震驚. 我還不明白為什麼有些人不想給巴基斯坦全國機會發展和進步…每次有點兒希望, 會發生這樣的情況…你看我們巴基斯坦的鄰邦印度…他們有很厲害的發展…然後你看我的國家?  為什麼是這樣的呢? 我真的想知道…

    昨天又是巴基斯坦歷史的很黑的日子.

  • GUITAR HERO!!!

    Posted by Riz Hardcore on December 26, 2008

    Woohoo!!! Bought Guitar Hero 4 World Tour last night!!! I got a bunch of coupons from my school for HMV and so I was able to buy the whole set (guitar, mic and drumset) for super cheap!!! 昨天我买了guitar hero的游戏!!!特好玩!我学校几个家长送给我几张HMV的卡。。。所以我买guitar hero的全游戏不贵。。。

    So I set it up with my brother and my sister and we played it for like 3 hours last night!!! We totally sucked but we kept at it! hahahahahaha…we want to unlock the extra songs because there are some good songs on this thing! Then after 3 hours of trying, I got online and found out that there already is a secret code that we could’ve put in and all the songs would’ve been unlocked! hahahaha…买了之后我跟弟弟和妹妹玩了三个钟头!!!不停!哈哈哈哈。。。我们想开启八十多游戏的extra歌。。。可是完了三个钟头之后我上了网才知道网站已经写了游戏的密码。。。

    This game TOTALLY gives you a whole new found respect for the old classics man!!! So much…

    Okay – going back to playing this…seeya…

  • CARITAS HOSPITAL

    Posted by Riz Hardcore on December 25, 2008

    For those of you who don’t live in HK you probably didn’t hear this piece of ridiculous news that happened a few days ago…I’m still so angry about this…住香港外面的人可能没有听过最近的稍息。。。我再想还在特生气。。。

    A person’s father suddenly had a heart attack right at the doorstep of the Caritas hospital in HK. When the person ran back inside the hospital to ask for help, guess what the person at reception told him to do? Call an ambulance. CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT!!! Instead of trying to find someone in their OWN emergency room to come out and help – the receptionist told the man to call an ambulance! So he did that and when the ambulance came – his father had already died. 最近有一位男人在一个医院外面跟他爸爸站在医院门口。突然他爸爸有心脏发作。。。这个男人进去了医院通知接待员。。。这个接待员应该通知一个医生反而他叫这个人打电话给警察!!!救护车来了之后这个男人的爸爸已经过了身。。。真的太可惜了。。。真的特冷血的。。。你看到一个人发生很严重的事你还在叫他打电话给警察?!?!?!你是一个医院的服务员!!!你为什么马上自己叫一个医生过来看看!!!

    I can’t believe it…still can’t believe it…where are your fucking ethics!!! A hospital is where people to go to get help and where people SAVE lives!!! Can’t believe it…这个时代人越来越没有什么道德。。。只关心自己。。。他人不管你事。。。

    This is the state of the world today…people don’t care for each other anymore…all they care about is themselves and to find anyway to protect themselves…

    URGH…

    Anyway…here’s a great website for some awesome photos of hardcore shows in the US. This photographer’s name is Matt Miller and the dude is INCREDIBLE!!! When you look at the photos notice the people at the shows and the bands on stage…not one photo has anyone in tight black pants, cool looking shirts, make-up, or cool looking haircuts…it’s just kids in shirts and shorts playing a music that goes much deeper then cool hair and clothes. THAT’S HARDCORE. 反正我找到一个听好hardcore演出照片的网站!是一个人叫Matt Miller的网站。。。特拍照拍的挺好看!!!你看他的照片的时候请你留意演出里的观众和台上的乐队。。。没有一个人穿很窄的衣服,没有一个人有很 cool的头发,没有一个男人化妆…只是普通的人穿普通衣服玩一种很深的音乐和文化。。。那么深的音乐和文化哪儿有时间留意你的衣服和头发?!?!?!这就是HARDCORE!!!

  • END OF THE YEAR?!??!

    Posted by Riz Hardcore on December 23, 2008

    I can’t believe this crazy year is coming to a close…we started this year so positively with the release of the Unite Asia EP! With that we took the EP and played in the Philippines in front of 24,000 people…then came back and played with one of my favorite hardcore bands Comeback Kid in Hong Kong! Don’t forget that we ALMOST got to play with my biggest hardcore inspiration – Sick of it All! Oh my god…we were so close to that show…so close to meeting my heroes…我真的不信已经到了年底。。。我们今年开始的非常好。。。我们出了新ep叫亚洲起义。。。然后我们拿了这个ep过去菲律宾在一场二万四千多人面前演出!然后第二天回来跟我们其中最爱的hardcore乐队Comeback Kid一起演出。。。别忘记我们几乎跟我最大最大最大灵感…Sick of it All!!! 后来他们在马来西亚玩不到。。。所以我们后来没有机会见面!!!太可惜了。。。

    As always – no year can go by without some shit happening…so our singer quit in March, our bass player quit in August, and our drummer quit in October. What a great year it’s been…当然我们是荔枝王所以我们每一年一定要经挺多问题。。。二零零八年当然有很多问题。。。我们主唱三月放弃了乐队,八月份我们bass手也放弃了。。。然后最近我们鼓手也放弃了乐队。。。真的一个很幸苦的一年。。。

    We picked up an old friend Ho to play bass for us…and as soon as he joined the band we’ve written like 7 songs…it’s pretty crazy…these past few days I’ve written crazy amounts of lyrics to most of these songs. We have a new version of My Family which is a MILLION times better then the old version and hopefully we’ll upload that someday…可是我们几年也找到了一个好朋友ho入了对弹bass吉他…他入了对之后我们有很多新歌。。。my family这首歌也有个新版。。。比以前的好特多。。。很期待给大家听听。。。

    Anyway…it’s been a great year…who knows what’s going to happen next year. We do hope we’ll be playing shows again…we hope that we’ll be a full band again. But who knows when and how that’s going to happen. 反正今年也是很好玩。。。明年不知道会发生好的或者不好的事 。。。我们很期待尽快可以再演出。。。可是还没有找到适合的鼓手。。。所以真的想不到我们下次什么时候会再 有机会见大家。。。

    I’ll end this with an awesome live video of a new Hong Kong hardcore band called Contact Chord! It’s nice to hear a hardcore band from Hong Kong that actually SOUNDS hardcore! :-) Anyway。。。我很开心给大家介绍香港的新hardcore乐队叫Contact Chord!!!真的很开心终于可以听到一个香港hardcore乐队真的像hardcore!!! 他们是特年轻人。。。下面的短片你们可以看他们的live! 他们需要我们的鼓励 !

    ENJOY!!!

  • LAST DAY TODAY!!! :-( 今天是我实习的最后一天

    Posted by Riz Hardcore on December 19, 2008

    So I’ve arrived to my very last day…what an amazing trip this has been. Anyone that is in the midst of doing a degree in education – look forward to being a student teacher. It really is a wonderful time especially if you put your entire heart and soul into the experience…I will probably never forget these kids and I know they will always remember having me as one of their second grade teachers…终于到了我实习的最后一天。。。想不到三个月可以过得那么快。。。如果你们开始读教育的degree哪我真的想跟你们说 – 一到做实习的时候请期待这个经验。。。真的太好。。。如果你放你的心在这个经验到 – 你一定会觉得特感动。。。我一定不会忘记这班小朋友。。。而且这班小朋友永远不会忘记我 – 他们的其中一位二年班的老师。。。

    I think over the next few days of holidays all I’m going to want to do is sleep…these past 3 months I have often woken up at 5am to prepare for my upcoming classes to make sure that I’m ready for these students, and to prove to my school that I’m ready to teach. I had my first job interview two days ago and I did really well…I walked out of that job interview feeling really good about myself!!! If I didn’t have my lack of fulltime teaching on my resume, I’m sure I would’ve gotten the job. So over the next few weeks I’m going to have to update my resume and start applying to schools all over Hong Kong!!! Very excited about future possibilities and maybe even going to different schools and all the professional development I will have as I make these changes…明天开始圣诞节的假期。。。这几天我一定会睡觉。。。不停睡觉。。。这几个月真的没有什么好睡觉。。。有几天我有五点钟起床准备当日的课。。。这样的准备是对小朋友很好。。。还有我要给我学校看看我对这个工作那么努力和ready做老师。。。前日我有我的第一教育的面试。。。我觉得我做的很好。。。可是因为我没有fulltime老师的经验应该拿不到这个学校其中一个老师的位子。。。这个假期我会开始看看其他学校然后希望可以去其他学校面试。。。

    In the next 2 weeks I also hope that we start recording some demos!!! With all the songs that we have now – I’ve started writing lyrics and CANNOT WAIT to record them!!! HURRY UP!!! 这两个礼拜我也思想快点录新歌的demo!!! 我们有特多新歌!!!我这几天也开始写歌词所以真的兴奋录新歌的音乐和歌词。。。

    Okay…gotta get ready to go to work for my last day as a student teacher…january I’m back to being a damn TA…URGH!!>!>>!>!>!>

  • LAST WEEK OF STUDENT TEACHING

    Posted by Riz Hardcore on December 15, 2008

    Oh my god…I can’t believe how fast time has flown by!!! I finish my 3 months of student teaching this week!!! It has been such a wonderful experience…but the best part has been able to get get to know these children so well. I will miss them that’s for sure…it’ll be a bittersweet day on Friday this week…sweet because these past few months have been full of lots of pressure and coming into school everyday was quite nerve wracking because I had to perform with lots of people watching. My school principal has come into observe me twice in the past two weeks, my assistant school principal observed me a few times, and of course the teacher I work with everyday is constantly observing me. The analogy of a “fish bowl” couldn’t fit this situation ANY better! 这个礼拜是我实习的最后一个礼拜。。。真的很奇怪。。。三个月已经过了!!!特快。。。这个礼拜五一定会一个很bittersweet的一天。。。因为我一定特开心因为我终于做完了我的实习还有做完了我的学位。。。可是礼拜五也会很不开心的一天。。。因为这三个月我跟这二十个小朋友的关系是很深的。。。我是很幸运有这个机会可以认识着班小朋友。。。他们真的特好。。。每天跟他们一起教书和听他们的故事, 做他们的老师是一个非常幸运的东西。。。可是这个礼拜之后我不会再做他们的老师。。。所以一定会很想他们。。。

    上个礼拜五有一位小朋友早一个礼拜放假了。我跟他说再见的时候他已经跟我说他一定会很想我。。。然后他自己去上校巴。。。然后过了十五分钟另外一个老师有找我跟我说“这小朋友刚才自己下车哭。。。哭的严重。。。我不知道发生什么事所以我国他那边问他发生什么事?小朋友一路哭一路跟我说他不想你走!!!他想你留在这儿教他们。。。”

    特sad…

    But it will also be a very sad day on Friday  because I get attached to kids very easily…I love being with kids…so being with one group of kids for 3 months has been very rewarding for me and I am going to miss being their teacher :-( One child left early for Christmas holidays last Friday and after saying goodbye to me, he went to his school bus and broke down crying :-( He was sobbing uncontrollably and a teacher was called in to take care of him…the teacher asked him why he was crying and the child said that Mr. Farooqi was not going to be his teacher anymore and he didn’t want me to leave…

    :-(

    So this weekend…songs and songs and songs have been written…I wrote two this weekend (one i’ve been working on for like a month…) and I was also finally able to update My Family the way I always wanted this song to sound like!!! God…can’t wait to record these things and let you listen to them all…

    God – I wish we could find a drummer that actually loves hardcore like we do…that would be the best…not since Kevin have we had a drummer who actually listens to, loves and understands hardcore…

    At least right now the 3 of us (Ho, Brian and me) really know what we need and what we’re looking for in terms of a drummer…we just don’t know how long it’ll take…but when we find this magical person – it’s going to be awesome!!! We’ll be back…

  • PARKWAY DRIVE INTERVIEW

    Posted by Riz Hardcore on December 11, 2008

    So yesterday afternoon I was asked by my favorite China magazine Painkiller to do an interview with Parkway Drive. So I called them around 6pm their time and they were the coolest guys…very VERY humble…they kept saying “we don’t know why people like us! The music we play there already are a million bands playing this style!!!” hahahahahaha…When I called them it was the first night of their HUGE tour with HUGE US bands Suicide Silence, The Acacia Strain, A Day to Remember, etc…but the coolest thing was that Parkway Drive was the headlining band!!! They’re headlining the whole tour even with big huge US bands on it…that’s how big they are in Australia…昨天下下午我最喜欢内地的杂志painkiller叫我马上跟parkway drive做个访问。。。所以我差不多四点钟(他们的六点钟)打电话给他们。。。他们真的是特好人。。。他们的主唱常常说“我不知道为什么那么多人喜欢我们!我们玩的风格在这个地球上有挺多乐队比我们好很多!” 哈哈哈。。。他们特谦恭。。。他们昨天晚上在澳洲开始了一个特大的巡演。。。是跟美国很大乐队suicide silence, a day to remember, the acacia strain…可是最兴奋的事是parkway drive是做主办乐队!在澳洲他们真的是一个特大的乐队。。。美国出名乐队也没有parkway drive那么大!挺好。。。

    Anyway – to read the interview wait for the January issue of Painkiller! My bro Freddy is translating it all now…hahahaha…good luck dude! :-) 反正如果你们想看这个访问你们需要等一月才有机会看。。。这个访问会在painkiller一月份出的。。。

  • JOE SATRIANI vs. COLDPLAY

    Posted by Riz Hardcore on December 10, 2008

    The funniest thing is going on in the music world right now…Joe Satriani (you know – the guitar god that taught Steve Vai and Kirk Hammett) claims that Coldplay’s award winning song “Vida La Viva” or whatever its name is the EXACT same as his song If I Could Fly…and it REALLY does sound exactly the same…the main melody and chord progressions are all the same. So he is suing the band for ALL profits that Coldplay has incurred because of this song…

    Here’s a video that compares both songs…http://www.roadrunnerrecords.com/blabbermouth.net/news.aspx?mode=Article&newsitemID=110526

    New Thursday song:

    Parkway Drive has decided to play 3 shows in Mainland China!!! Woohoo!!! This is their spirit “Hey we can either go snowboarding for a few days, OR we can play shows in China – Let’s do CHINA!!!” That is the attitude of true musicians who LIVE for playing shows. park way drive确定了在内地玩三场演出!!!特兴奋!!!这个是他们的态度。。。他们跟我说 “我们可以去滑雪或者去中国演出。。。当然选去表演!!!” 真正音乐人的态度!!!
