Someone new to Hong Kong was asking if there were any local artists like Sia, Pink, Janelle Monae, or Jhene Aiko- pop artists but with that creative quirkiness that gives them an edge. We were having dinner, the video for “Pressure” was being shown on one of the music channels, and she wanted to go [...]

All too often, one must ruthlessly and completely delete the past in order to move forward, whereas, especially in movies and music, there is often inspiration to be had by going back and delving into the past- the roots- and seeing how “back in the day” gave birth to Here In The Now. Today, I [...]

You know something is not right when subscribing to a site for online music news and receiving the shattering “exclusive” that Khloe Kardashian has called it quits with French Montana as the latter is getting “needy” and that the reality “star” hasn’t got over her split from Lamar Odom. Khloe Kardashian and Monsieur French Montana [...]

Peel Fresco is recognised as Hong Kong’s only Jazz club though it stopped being a “jazz club” over three years ago. Frankly, who really knows what all that “jazz” is these days, anyway? Some scat singing? Tedious solos by everyone in a group which, despite often being pretty shaky, are applauded wildly by audiences desperate [...]

Perhaps it’s a generational thing, but even before the ripe old age of ten, I was listening to Ella Fitzgerald, Peggy Lee, Dinah Washington, the Benny Goodman Trio, Les Paul and Mary Ford, the Dave Brubeck Quartet and singing along to standards like Autumn Leaves, Skylark, Stardust and all the great songs coming outta Tin [...]

Dear Kanye, Let me start by saying you’re a damn good rapper and I thought Love Lockdown was a very well produced track which I liked for almost a month. Hell, I don’t even like McNuggets for a month, but I liked that primitive drum loaded Kunta Kunte beat of McLove Lockdown with your auto-tuned [...]

There’s something happening here, but what it is ain’t exactly clear and neither is what YouTube decides to take down and continues to keep on its site. There is a very Orwellian Big Brother Is Watching You side to the channel- and it’s an even bigger turn-off. Recently, a number of people without recording contracts [...]

When one party holds a race meeting- like it did at Shatin yesterday- and where turnover was HK$1.45 billion with an attendance of over 60,000 for Sa Sa Ladies Day- and the other party is the world’s largest music company with the biggest names on its roster of artists, the odds of the two coming [...]

I was watching my friend with the unfortunate name of Pido- and the best acoustic guitarist I have seen other than James Taylor and McCartney and come alive when he saw his partner Jed walk in. He was singing the old Goffin-King classic, Up On The Roof, and the love these two share in a [...]
