[News + Random] This Week The Trend (19 Apr – 25 Apr)


 <海外報導特集 Overseas Features> Part 1 – The Word Alive – Live At Irving plaza

文字回顧 Concert Review

Earlier this month, we caught The Word Alive’s performance at Irving Plaza as a preview of their highly-anticipated show in Hong Kong… Even though metalcore rising star The Word Alive only has 6 years of history, their past is definitely a dramatic ride of roller coaster – frequent lineup change, accusation surfaced to the public, open recruitment for member and finally back on track to chase their dreams…

早前我們特別前往 The Word Alive 在美國的演出,作為TWA期待已久的香港演唱會預告…… 儘管The Word Alive組成只有六年,但他們的起跌絕對如過山車般充滿戲 劇性 —— 頻繁陣容變動、無休止互相指責、公開招募成員,最終回到軌道上繼續追逐 夢想……

[THROWBACK THURSDAY] Travis Barker (Blink-182 / Box Car Racer /The Transplants)

Is this the reason why you started a band? 鼓手Travis Barker分享加入龐克樂團的原因。這又是你的故事嗎?

中學的時候,老師就像納粹白癡一樣,把自己看得過份重要。當時你只有十五、六歲,感覺差不多成年一樣,而你心中只有一個想法:我不需要這樣的癈話!你又會想到畢業後找怎樣的工作。但我當時只想:盡快放我走,我要去巡迴演唱!人人都跟我說大學有多好,但我對大學亳無了解。我根本沒有錢上大學,家人亦沒有錢供我上大學。最終,我選擇了反抗 (那正正是龐克的精神喔!)
