April 20: Robin Nievera at Fringe

PartyPosted by Freddy Gunn Fri, April 19, 2013 13:10:02
Ho ho HO!

We are stoked to play alongside Robin Nievera as he and fellow band Carlos Castano & the City Lights Soundtrack take over Fringe Club on SATURDAY April 20. It is 150HKD including drink and we will be opening the evening. Come down!

Robin Nievera (Philippines)

Robin Nievera is a singer/songwriter, guitarist, composer and musical producer from Manila. His riffs, melodies, and lyrics are inspired by Incubus, Dave Mathews Band, John Mayer and Bon Iver. Robin and his band opened for Hanson’s “Shout it Out” world tour early 2012, and Robin won “Best New Male Artist” at the prestigious 2012 Star Awards. The band released its album “Nightmares” in November 2012, and is currently undertaking its first Asian tour, making stops in Singapore, Hong Kong and Japan.

Carlos Castano & the City Lights Soundtrack (Philippines)

Carlos Castaño is an independent musician from the Philippines. His music is a reflection of the multitude of stories that heʼs accumulated over the years. Moving back to the city three years ago, he started writing material for his first album City Light Soundtrack, a 12-song all-original release that was launched in November of 2010. A year later he begun producing and writing material for his second album, City Light Soundtrack 2: Permanence, released today- March 21, 2012.

The second album is an 11-track all-original release that still mirrors the first album but is sonically miles ahead. Produced by himself, Edward Enriquez, Kelvin Uy, and Errol Apacible in his home studio and in Kerplunk! Recording Studios in Makati, Carlos says that his truer influences shine out here in the second album- “everything from Motown to early pop records to the blues.”

Cover: $150 (in advance), $180 (on the day); includes one special drink

PartyPosted by Freddy Gunn Tue, June 26, 2012 12:13:02
Woho!!! We love the Wanch's handover hallelujah, and this year they are having FOUR days of party. We were stoked to be playing on the juicy slot of Saturday at 10pm. Yeah! For this little fiesta it will be Timmy, Jimmy & Freddy since Kid Gunn is off to the shores of Macau for the weekend.

Facebook page:

A year sure does pass quickly when you're rocking out every night !

Following on from our inaugural one-dayer in 2011 and an enlarged two day event last year, our annual festival goes from strength-to-strength.

We can now confirm that this year's event will last for FO
UR days and feature 45 BANDS between 6.15pm on Friday 29 June until we close on Monday 2 July.

The format will be the same as in previous years, which means each act will play for 30 minutes with 15 minutes changeover time between acts.

The full band line-up is now complete and the timetable is in the thread below.

Finally, many thanks to Mike Davis, the designer of this year's poster and T-shirt artwork.

PartyPosted by Freddy Gunn Fri, June 03, 2011 10:40:22
Quick note (after all, there are TWO gigs in one night :) We are confirmed to play at the wonderful and drunken LKF Beerfest. Super sweet! Outdoor location somewhere along the bar street - just look for the stage and you'll be fine. We will play the prime slot of 22:00. Thank YOU LKF! Nice!

In ADDITION we will be heading down to Backstage for a late (23ish) attempt to perform well in the PlanetRox competition - if you have time then please come down and vote for yours truly, there is a very very very small chance we get to go to Montreal to zaaaaang play at the festival.

22 June -> 6 July: Rock the Valley

PartyPosted by Freddy Gunn Fri, June 03, 2011 10:09:34
>>> Update, all right due a typhoon we are instead playing on the 6th of July. We can't say we are bummed since it will be the effing season finale of the races and should be packed. Oh yesss....


This is just so so so rad. We have had the good fortune to get the awesomest chaps at alivenotdead to put us on the slot for the 22nd of June where Happy Valley racecourse will host one of three nights of Rock the Valley. We will play in a special area which caters to (holy shiiiiit) 1500 people, and of course there is the greater (astronomical number coming up) 15000 capacity of the racecourse that might be somewhat bothered by a noisy band getting in the way of the racing action.

We can't wait! Alongside us will be Asia-top Jazz guitarist and all around guitar-god Eugene Pao & Adrian da Silva. Woah...

Come if you can! It is 10HKD entry, and we should play a couple of shorter sets throughout the night. RAAAAAAD!

And just to top it off, YES there is a promo video.

Humbly yours,

// El freddio

27 November: Reign Lee release party

PartyPosted by Freddy Gunn Thu, November 25, 2010 13:00:11
Hey there!

Woho! We are supporting Reign Lee when she is launching her new full length CD at Grappas on the 27th.

Regin herself describes it as this:
"Yes, the rumours are true, I’ve been busy in the woodshed working on a new record. It will be ready to drop on Sat, Nov. 27th. We’ll be bringing down the house at Grappa’s Cellar from 8pm to 2am and we want you to join us! Some of HK’s most eclectic and talented acts will be joining me and there may even be a few surprise guests who drop by throughout the night, but that’s top secret."

Come if you can!!! Bee is joining us for guitar duties and overall ass-kicking. Say 'hi' too him and give him a big slobbery kiss so that we don't have to ;)

All <3!

November 5: Farewell to Niall (for now)

PartyPosted by Freddy Gunn Fri, October 29, 2010 14:41:54
Hey Everyone!

Holy cow, this year has gone so quickly. Our beloved frontman and brother Niall Gunn will now take a temp leave from the band for a brief spell and fight his way into pilot school. (don't worry, we'll still be a four piece, but still... the Niallster!!!)

Anyway, I'll ask him to write more on the blog about this, but I wanted to advertise the last gig that Niall will be doing with us this year. We will have a wonderful, loud, drunken and FREE gig at the Wanch on next Friday together with Six Pack of Wolves and The Icarus Flight Plan. Drop by and say 'hi' and salute the man the myth the hairgel: Niall Gunn - we <3 you bro!!!

Hope to see you there! Mad love!

September 17 - EP release!

PartyPosted by Freddy Gunn Sat, September 26, 2009 09:08:19

Timmy has already written a bit about the release party on our overall blog ( but I thought to add a few tidbits about the evening.

Songs for Children are my FAVE DJ:s in Hong Kong for sure - they don't only know how to rock a party but also managing to be so cute and adorable that you wanna take them home for supper... ahh... and they did a RAD special flyer for the event - it is the Songs mascot holding aaaaaa... SHOTGUN! Mike, you are a star.

We then had a little surprise stored for the dancefloor ("oh nooo", I hear you think, but you are wrong - it was not our interpretive ballet dance session), where we had pre-recorded Rebel Radio without vocals so that Niall and the rest could holler into a mic. The surprise element was that I had switched the "standard" Rebel Radio verses with Michael Jackson's Billie Jean, Smooth Criminal and Kraftwerk's The Model. Haha! So much fun :D There is an inaudible rendition on YouTube if you are interested.

Thank you guys and gals for being there! Now, how can we pretend that we have a new album so we can party with you again....

Much <3!
