  • Unearth in HK?

    Posted by Riz Hardcore on October 14, 2012

    Wow…just got back from the unearth show here in HK…only about 150 people turned up…what do you kids in HK listen to? i know no one gives a fuck about hardcore here…but Unearth is a metal/metalcore band – you know, the stuff that you guys all like! is it because Unearth doesn’t have any keyboards, auto-tune vocals, and they wear black shirts instead of fluorescent green or pink? 剛看完Unearth的演出。。。不是特別多人來看。我好想知道現在的年青人喜歡聽什麼類型的重型音樂? 我知道這裡沒有人喜歡hardcore, 但是Unearth是一隊metal/metalcore的樂隊 – 我以為你們年青人最喜歡就是這樣的。是不是因為Unearth沒有keyboard? 沒有auto-tune的vocal? 是不是他們穿衣服不是太型 (全黑色。。。沒有穿粉紅色的t-shirt, 等等)?

    i just don’t know how anyone can continue to put on shows for bands here…we didn’t organize this show tonight, but i feel for the organizers: Hidden Agenda 加油。。。我就不知道在香港安排演出的人怎麼樣可以繼續搞show? 我地已經放棄咗這裡搞show…但是我好想Hidden Agenda班兄弟姐妹可以找辦法繼續下去…

    hahaha – makes me wonder how many people will come to our show next week? 這樣的話最搞笑是我們下個禮拜的演出肯定不多人.

    Fuck it – 我地玩的開心最重要! :-) 到時見 (或者不見,無所謂 :-)

    Can’t believe it’s been like 4 days since I’ve been back in Hong Kong…last weekend seems like it probably was just a dream…hahaha…did it really happen? I have a vague recollection of some traveling I did last weekend…but it seems so far away now. That’s life in Hong Kong…那麼快已經到星期六。。。上個禮拜六已經忘記了 – 可是,是不是我發夢呢?哈哈哈。。。好像是。

    Our next show is coming up! We still don’t have a drummer and Mike can’t play that show…so we have a drummer from Guangzhou (Gaeon of Insecticide) who will come down to help us out. Then we are also in the midst of putting on a show together with Strategic Sounds for Beijing hardcore band Unregenerate Blood for Dec 8! It’ll be fun to have a Beijing hardcore band in Hong Kong finally! Especially a band like UB who have done so much and continue to do so much to promote hardcore in Beijing. 我們下個演出快到啊!這次我們的臨時鼓手不能玩 – 所以我們找了廣州樂隊殺蟲水的鼓手特意下來香港幫我們手!然後我們現在可以宣佈我們十二月八號將會幫我們好兄弟北京硬核樂隊“不復之血”香港站演出!我們終於可以享受一隊來自北京的硬核樂隊!一隊很多年不停努力宣傳硬核文化讓多人知道!

    Also…our good friend Bob has started up a new design company through his website! Please check it out and hit him up for designs! 還有 – 我們好兄弟Bob剛開了新網上設計公司!請過去看看!Nothing With

    Peace,

    Where do I even start? 哪裡可以開始?剛回來了香港。。。一個那麼難忘的週末。。。為了硬核付出了那麼多年的血汗。。。終於在北京見到大家努力的結果。一個那麼有熱情的音樂節 – 雖然八個樂隊一共是很長時間 – 但是觀眾們已經努力和堅持了到底!我們當晚是最後一個樂隊,那麼多年經驗後我們知道在音樂節玩最後是非常難動人的事情 – 因為坦白說大家太累了。但是 – 我們一上台感覺到大家的尊重和愛!好像是因為大家知道了我們是一隊99年到現在從來沒有放棄過硬核的樂隊。無論出入那麼多成員。。。樂隊經歷過很多好也不好的事情。。。我們還沒放棄。現在已經今年的十月 – 我們還找不到自己的鼓手。。。但是我們還堅持下去了。

    一個硬核社會最重要的東西還是”愛”。在這方面我覺得北京的硬核幫完全是個十分好的模範。他們一共不是很老的但是也不是特年輕 – 但是他們一開始為了硬核的發展,他們有抓緊幾個很重要的信念。最重要是無論如何 – 無論有什麼不清楚,有什麼不對,有什麼問題出現,永遠都需要用個理性的態度來一起解決。Fuck…我見到他們怎麼樣互相溝通和合作,我更加覺得他們真的明白到什麼叫”hardcore”. 又證明了在北京硬核世界裡大家不是盲目跟着風。。。這是他們的生活,他們的空氣。

    永不能忘記他們的努力和愛。。。永不能忘記他們怎麼樣出來為hardcore努力。

    這個硬核音樂節只是因為他們,所以能做到。

    我們BJHC的兄弟們。。。THANK YOU VERY MUCH!

    Peace,

  • 5am

    Posted by Riz Hardcore on September 29, 2012

    Yo…

    It’s 5am the day before history will be made in terms of hardcore in China…can’t believe this day is almost here where China will have it’s first hardcore festival of it’s own. I think what the most special part about it is that all the bands participating in this inaugural CNHC Hardcore Fest are FROM China! There aren’t any bands outside of China participating and it reinforces the idea that we must support our OWN first! Love it…of course, eventually we hope that we will be able to invite other bands from surrounding areas to participate, but this is the first one and there ain’t no money for anything yet :-) 現在是超早五點鍾。。。明天就是中國硬核歷史上最重要的一天。。。我還不相信我能見到明天!屬於自己的硬核音樂節的夢想明天會成真! 我覺得最棒的事情就是這次的音樂節參與的樂隊全部是來自中國的!我覺得這樣我們要再reinforce我們需要先支持自己世界的樂隊然後可以支持外面的。當然我們也希望一天能請國外的樂隊 – 但是,我們現在需要支持自己的樂隊先。

    We will get there…慢慢來!

    It’s 5am in the morning and as soon as I type this I need to head out the door and get to our studio. We still need to pack our merch and get the fuck to the airport to board an 8am flight to one of the dopest cities on the planet – BEIJING! Can’t wait to be back there…現在太早啊 – 還需要去studio準備些東西。。。然後我要開車去到機場。。。去我最愛的城市之一 – 北京!!!

    I heard it gets to 9 degrees there at night! WHAT?!?!?!?! Hahahahahahaha…我聽李遊說晚上氣溫是9度!what the fuck!??!?!

    To all my CNHC hardcore brothers and sisters – SEE YOU SOON!!! 大家cnhc硬核幫很快再見!

    Peace,

  • site’s fixed again…

    Posted by Riz Hardcore on September 26, 2012

    Damn – some motherfucker has been hacking our website for the past few months causing so much motherfucking trouble.

    Annoying as hell…thank god our webmaster is a good dude and gets on it right away when shit doesn’t work.

    Anyway – CNHC HARDCORE FEST 3 days away!!!! I can’t believe it and I can’t wait…the excitement is out of control…

    CROOZ x KING LY CHEE t-shirts will be arriving in Hong Kong this Thursday and we can’t WAIT to see these things!!! They’ll be on sale this weekend in Beijing first…IF we have any left, we’ll sell them at our next HK show. Our next HK is Oct 21 at Hidden Agenda. The unfortunate thing is that Mike can’t play with us – so we have to get another drummer to play…this guy that’s playing for us at that show is going to travel from Guangzhou! He’s the drummer of a metalcore band called Insecticide. Good guy…can’t believe he’s going to travel to practice with us and then play that show.

    Anyway…see you there!

    BEIJING – WE’RE COMING!!!

    Peace,
    Riz

  • new merch for CNHC fest

    Posted by Riz Hardcore on September 19, 2012

    Here you go…anyone going to the CNHC Hardcore Festival (One of the fucking BEST things to happen for hardcore in China)…will be able to get this limited print King Ly Chee t-shirts! We collaborated with our friends at Indonesia’s clothing company called CROOZ. These guys are such nice dudes and have been supporting us for a couple years now…到了!我們下個禮拜在CNHC硬核音樂節將會賣下面兩件T (肯定還有帽子 – 放心!). 這次我們跟因呢的服裝牌合作了 – 他們叫Crooz。他們支持了快兩三年了。因為我們是一隊從中國來得樂隊跟一家印尼的牌子合作,我們決定了這件T的theme應該是亞洲起義!

    Because this is a collaboration between China and Indonesia, we decided to use the UNITE ASIA theme for the shirt!

    We LOVE this design…two colors available – heather grey and navy blue. 我們太愛這個有點兒old-school hardcore的設計! 只有兩個顏色: 灰色和深藍色…

    Peace,

    Posted by Riz Hardcore on September 17, 2012

    So our brother Bryant (guitarist of STW) posted this video on my facebook yesterday…it’s so interesting because even if you don’t like the song or what it’s about – this actually reflects life in Hong Kong for international school kids. Watching this video I was definitely cringing – but more because I remember those days incredibly well. Why do I remember it? Because I’ve been straight edge my whole life – I remember all my dumbass friends being stupid during those days and me laughing my ASS off :-) Actually, we had a lot of fun during those days and I could probably say that a few of those years were some of the best in my LIFE…

    Anyway…pretty funny video – but a lot of truth in it. Bryant also said “as a parent, this makes me angry”. Couldn’t agree more…but it’s still an honest reflection of what life is like for international school kids. My Sofia might be experiencing this one day! OH MY GOD!!!!!!! :-(

    I’m out…shhhhhhh – don’t tell anyone – we’re launching the OVERCOME music video today :-)

    Peace,

  • shai hulud

    Posted by Riz Hardcore on September 14, 2012

    Man – there’s one band that I feel like we have a lot in common with. This band is called Shai Hulud…with their first full length “hearts once nourished…” I was totally in love with this band. The record after that was also amazing…then anything else that has come out has not been that interesting. But that was also because around that time I was falling out of love with the more “metal” hardcore…the past couple years I’ve just been back in love with hardcore hardcore…shit that’s fast, power chords, and the power is in the lyrical content…

    Anyway – Shai Hulud has always had a bad history of keeping singers…they have never released an album with the same singer twice. So now they just announced that their first singer Chad Gilber (who is the guitarist of New Found Glory) is coming back to sing on their new album. That’s fucking exciting! But he won’t be touring with them so I don’t know what that will do for them when they play live.

    Same thing with us – we just released the best album (Time Will Prove) of our 13 year history…then drummer quits 2 weeks later…and then all year we’ve been advertising for a drummer and have had a few calls. But nothing has materialized…we know what we want and what we’re looking for – and we found THAT dude yet.

    It’s a pain in the ass…we have this record that we can’t promote. But are still doing what we can.

    Overcome video will be out in a few days!!!!

    Peace,

  • Wishing Tree

    Posted by Riz Hardcore on September 13, 2012

    For the past couple days I’ve been creating a Wishing Tree together with the children of my classroom(The children helped me make it, then wrote their hopes/wishes for the year on the thin pieces of paper). This activity’s purpose was to bring the kids together as a community and teach them to rely on each other and look out for each other. The rest of the school year they will work in a classroom

    together every single day, so it’s important to establish a learning community.

    I’d like to know why the government can’t spend more time, money and resources so that HK’s public schools can ALL have this type of learning environment? Why do children have to attend expensive HK private schools to have this type of learning?

    You are really going to spend time and energy pushing something like National Education, instead of fixing the most important problem with HK’s education? Where is the LOVE for learning which should be at the HEART of all schools?

    Ridiculous.

    H2O live at This is Hardcore Fest…SOOOOOOO GOOD! Watching this makes me EVEN MORE excited for the CNHC Hardcore Festival!!! Are we going to see stagedives like this???
