Young Knives!

Well well well, if it isn't everybody's favourite geek-chic rock gods Young Knives ? back for a return visit after their triumphant Clockenflap headlining set last Jan...

It jolly well is you know.

Jose, Jose, and more Jose!

Just as there seems no depths to the lows George Lucas will take his Star Wars shame, and just as there's not enough oil in the world, let alone cash, to turn Manchester City into a decent footballing outfit (however hard they try) - we've got ourselves a sell out on our hands folks. This, however, is a sell out of the more wholesome variety.

It's not that common to max out shows in advance here in HK, so it's really a big THANK YOU to everyone who has bought their Jose Gonzalez tickets ready for this weekend. It's official, there simply are none left.

Demand has kept on rising and rising though, and we're proud as punch to announce that we've managed to encourage (the ever-encouragable) Jose into doing an additional show with us on sunday afternoon. A matinée, if you will. This will take place on the same day (22nd), at the same venue (Grappas Cellar) and will be the same programme as the night time show (the superb Clementine Is My Sunshine will support at both).

The matinée show will open at 2pm, and to make things nice and fair for everyone, tickets will only be available on the door for this gig - first come first served.

What a lovely way to spend a sunday afternoon...

DP Demos

I just had the privilege of hearing the latest DP demos. My lord they're good. They won't be released for a while, though rest assured they'll only get bigger, better and, yep, phatter before they are.

In the meantime, for those in HK, catch their gig tomorrow night (sat 7th) at Backstage Live with the consistently ace Rockabilly kings El Destroyo and new kids on the block Poubelle International

And so it begins...

Welcome to The Peoples' Party! A Party of the People. For the People, by the... yep you get the idea.

A Party of any other sort would just be silly we think. So here we are: The Peoples' Party.

So what is The Peoples' Party?

Good question.

In essence it's simply a personal blog - and I like simple things. The focus will be on music - the music in, around and of Asia specifically.

There is some great music going on here and it's my intention to help expose it. Based in HK, there's also the opportunity to work together with friends and bring in quality acts to the region. So we'll do that when The People demand it.

There's no grand scheme or fiscal policy behind this. If we can help in some way to share the musical love, then that's quite enough for us.
