Mensheng’s vocal Benny told me last night that there are few live houses and music school received letters from Government that they were told to move out from the industrial buildings. So it looks like Hidden Agenda is just the beginning! We have no idea what will happen but clearly it will affect the indie music scene. Imagine the Government is going to shut down all kind of music related resources in the Kwun Tong area? All the bands have to move out from all the industrial buildings because the Government is saying that music industry is not an industry? For having a livehouse you need the entertainment permit? No matter the music in HK sucks because they look at music like entertainment. FUCK YOU Government! Music is more than just entertainment!!!
This is not right and we need to protect ourselves!
A new song from Bury Your Dead’s new album is up online…this is the first album with their old singer back. The old singer is the one who sang on the album “Cover Your Tracks” that we ALL loved…so to have him back sounds great! 几年前有个特棒的唱片我们全队都爱上 – 就是Bury Your Dead的唱片叫 “Cover Your Tracks”…但是，之后那个唱片的主唱 (Matt Bruso) 就离队了。之后的主唱完全不够好。。。还有没有那个硬核的态度和精力所以之后几张唱片完全难听 – 十分难听。现在 – 那个主唱 (Matt Bruso) 就回来了！他们今年八月份将会发出新专辑。。。下面的地址有其中一首歌！他一回来，全Bury Your Dead就再变了以前的Bury Your Dead…
Check out the song…it actually sounds like the old Bury Your Dead! Excited to hear the rest of the album! http://www.roadrunnerrecords.com/blabbermouth.net/news.aspx?mode=Article&newsitemID=160018
All the rules on the July 1st march is CRAZY!!! Telling people not to bring instruments or to be too loud. But then there is a pro-government carnival that will go on on the same day and they have NO rules! WHAT THE FUCK!? That is the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard…it was uncovered a few days ago that the pro-government event has no noise restrictions and people are going to dance and play music.香港每年七月一号有个特大游行 – 通常都是几万人出来示威。这个就是香港的自由所以我们大家都会支持这样的活动。。。我们可以这样做所以我们要珍惜。但是今年，警方宣布了很多规矩 – 今年不能有什么乐器，不能大声呐喊，等等。。。真白痴！但是，最傻逼的事情就是。。。当时还有另外一个活动 – 这个活动是一班支持政府安排的。他们的活动将会有跳舞，音乐，等等 – 但是他们一个规矩都没有！
HK Government = FULL OF SHIT. 香港政府 = 傻逼。

Yesterday I did some DIY work at our new house in Sai Kung and put up my guitar wall!!! YAY!!! I’m so proud of seeing these guitars up on my wall. I’m also lucky that my beautiful wife supported me and said that we should put them up like this. 昨天在我新家我有自己做了很棒的DIY东西！我放了我的吉他在我的墙上！我看我的吉他墙的时候感到特自豪。。。是因为我那么多年都坚持了玩这种音乐 – 没有怎么改。。。不是跟潮流，就是玩我最爱得音乐。我也很幸运我的老婆支持我 – 就是她鼓励我用我们这个墙做这个吉他墙 中间那个白色比较朋克的吉他就是我爸爸在我十三岁的生日买给我。哈哈哈哈。。。二十几年后我还在玩儿那种音乐风格！哈哈哈哈。。。真搞笑！
2. 一个Gibson送给我的Gibson Les Paul
Looking at these guitars I also feel proud that I persevered with playing guitar and music for over 20 years now. The “white” guitar that looks very punk rock my dad bought for me on my 13th birthday. I’m 35 this year and I STILL have this guitar In this photo there are two guitars still missing…
1. The LTD that I have been using for the past few years
2. A Gibson Les Paul that Gibson Hong Kong and given me…
Can’t wait to put both those up!!! 太期待拿两个加上我这个吉他墙上！
Please read this link and help! It’s such an easy thing for all of you to do and the effects could be MASSIVE! 请大家看下面的网站！这个活动是超级简单但是后果可能超大！希望大家关心香港的地下/音乐世界的朋友们可以参加这个活动！我们老说 – 我们本地香港的政府是特老土 – 关于艺术的事情什么都不知道。。。完全没有什么知识！所以这样的活动就是你发表你的看法。。。政府就是要求一个本地livehouse关门！这个我们完全反抗。为什么要管么？他们就是一个音乐的地方 – 没有做个什么非法的东西。就是玩音乐！！！
Take action and care about the local/underground music culture in Hong Kong! Not asking you to do much – just mail a letter to our out of touch government who doesn’t know ANYTHING about the arts: CLUELESS about the arts!!!
