March 11th, 2018 - Freespace Happening - WKCD

ConcertsPosted by Timmy Gunn Mon, February 12, 2018 18:45:50
We're always thrilled when we get offered a chance to play at the West Kowloon Cultural District area. We're still yet to play at a Clockenflap there but have always enjoyed the venue.

On March 11th, we get to be part of a 2 day seasonal festival which supports and promotes local bands, known as Freespace Happening. The people behind the scenes have always been extremely generous with us and have invited us to play on what has gone on to be some of our more favourite shows. We're hoping for this to be no different.

Other bands featured across the two days:
Chochukmo
Choi Sai Ho
Andy is Typing
Milkmouth
Blood Wine or Honey
+ many more

See ya then. Bring your sunnies.

December 9th, 2017 - WE ARE ALL DREAMERS - Fringe Club

ConcertsPosted by Timmy Gunn Mon, February 12, 2018 18:40:50
We have always tried to participate in as many charity events as possible. It's not often however, that we get to see where the money that we help raise goes too. It was an absolute honour and a pleasure to help build a music school for less fortunate kids in Nepal, alongside our friends in LOVE ATTITUDE. Thanks for helping to invite us to perform for the Just Music crew and this fantastic charity. Looking forward to the next one.

June 4, 2016 - Indie Rock Dance Party - HK Brewhouse

ConcertsPosted by Timmy Gunn Thu, May 05, 2016 12:09:30
4 indie bands, one indie DJ. A saturday night in a sweaty LKF basement in LKF. All rock, all dance, all party.

THE SLEEVES
SHOTGUN POLITICS
SHUMKING MANSION
PSYCHO IN MONGKOK
+ Indie DJ Supersonic Iain

THE SLEEVES
Part punk, part classic rock, part 80s indie, The Sleeves have taken their self-styled ‘Arcade Rock’ around the region, twice performed at Clockenflap and supported Gary Numan and Peaches in Macau. The band are currently finalising material for their second album to be recorded in Cambodia in July. Dirty power chords backed by frenetic drums with infectious pop melodies: Insert coins, press ‘Play’.

SHOTGUN POLITICS
Big choruses, loud guitars and infectious performances have propelled Shotgun Politics from local clubs to playing for 10,000 people on tour in Canada. And the mission remains the same: to play every single show as if it’s their last. Coming from different backgrounds in Hong Kong, Chengdu, Singapore and Sweden Chengdu and Malmö, the four ‘Gunns’ bring influences from indie, punk-rock, alternative, metal and pop. The result … ‘Party Rock’ !

SHUMKING MANSION
ShumKing Mansion play an intense blend of upbeat Dance Rock and Synth Pop with a Psychedelic energy. Described as "one of the most mesmeric new acts on Hong Kong circuit", they're a live band who engage crowds and project their intense sets with imagination and energy ... Welcome to the Mansion !

PSYCHO IN MONGKOK
From tripped out, psychedelic space rock to high octane garage rock, prepare to have your mind blown by the psycho-sonic explosion that is Psycho In Mongkok. With a globe-spanning line-up from Spain, Italy, Colombia and Australia, ‘The Psychos’ combine 60s garage rock with Ramones-style speed punk and pay tribute to the psychedelic sounds of the Floyd and The Beatles in a high energy dish best served live.

DJ SUPERSONIC IAIN
Iain is the founder of club night, supersonic, showcasing the best of British rock’n’roll and indie. He has provided DJ support to the Stereophonics, Carl Barat, The Vaccines, The Killers, Pete Doherty and the Happy Mondays, as well as dj-ing alongside the likes of Mani from the Stone Roses and Adam Ficek from Babyshambles. Iain’s tunes are loud and fast and will make you dance.

May 19, 2016 - UNDERGROUND 118 - Orange Peel

ConcertsPosted by Timmy Gunn Mon, April 18, 2016 14:24:02


Underground 118 could probably be called ROCK NIGHT as the line-up consists of some of the best rock bands currently
gigging in Hong Kong. Opening the show are arcade rockers The Sleeves, who are Brits based here and have supported
Gary Numan and Peaches in the past, among others. Second band is Still Mind, whose members include famous Hong Kong
musicians but prefer to keep the focus on their music by not telling us who they are! They will be showcasing their original
melodic alternative rock. Third up are party rock favourites Shotgun Politics who have just finished their first Japanese tour.
Last but not least we have Dowa Towo, an indie rock band who have remained quite mysterious in their bio info. So for a
good sampling of best of local ROCK on a Thursday night, see you at Underground 118 at Orange Peel on Thursday 19th
May.

Underground 118
Thursday 19th May 2016
8:00pm - 11:30pm

Bands: The Sleeves, Still Mind, Shotgun Politics & Dowa Towo
Advance tickets: HK$90
Door Tickets: HK$120
Includes one drink

Aug 4: Poker Rock III

ConcertsPosted by Freddy Gunn Fri, August 01, 2014 14:04:56


For the THIRD year in a row, we are meeting up with our brothers The Fat Jokers for a night of instrument bashing. It is also the last chance to see the Jokers for a while - check out their statement:

Poker Rock #3 – We Love Char Siu Show

Poker Rock made it to its 3rd year and there is something special about the night. The Fat Jokers’ trombonist Bike Kit (a.k.a. Char Siu) is leaving us to Australia and the drummer of The Glareless, Au Yeung, is also leaving the band after this show. With Venerable Chung Chung (Dickson the sexy sax-man of Tri-deuces) and Shotgun Politics, join us in this once or never farewell party


People are telling me there will be Shotgun guest appearance of keys and synths, and someone replacing me on the drums for a song or two. Awesomeness!

Come by, and join up!

Dec 15: Harbour Hallelujah festival

ConcertsPosted by Freddy Gunn Fri, December 06, 2013 01:19:01
Ho ho ho!


Dang, I can't believe that we are having the chance to lock off the year with one more outdoor festival! I'll just quote from the Timmster about this rad event:



"As I sit here typing this, in a gloomy Macau hotel room - I find myself cocooned up in a hoodie & scarf. I remember a time not so long ago that I used to show a bit more toughness! What's going on here?

Anyway kids. Here's a look at our next and final show of 2013.

It's been a pretty wacky year for us. We've played some incredibly memorable shows and that's thanks to all of you.

We've played three festival stages and we will close the year with one more.

The event we are playing at is a collaboration between Very HK, an organisation that strives to promote all things creative in HK and The Wanch, an organisation that strives to be badass twenty four seven.

Harbour Hallelujah, taking place at Very HK's 'Very Big Picnic' is quite simply, going to be a good time.

It's located at the New Central Harbour Front which is that stretch of grass between Central & Admiralty I believe and get this:

It's FREE

Some of the bands who we will be sharing the bill with are:

The Bollands
Say Mosquito
The Sleeves (man it's been ages since we've played with The Sleeves)
Don't Panic (!!!)

Of course there are several other fantastic acts.

Full line up and more details can be found here.

Hallelujah indeed boys and girls. See ya all there."
