回顧全文 Review

「⋯⋯今次樂團被安排在一個更近距離的場地演出(幾乎沒有舞台/觀眾區之分),這個設置令人回憶當年樂隊在地下室表演,成員被觀眾包圍著,兩者均成為的演出一分子的年代。 每次看到 Truth Corroded 在舞台上,他們均顯得更有自在,沒有多餘的把戲或説話,説到底已跟大家多次見面了,也不用特別作自我介紹吧。 牆上飾版暗藏燈飾,含蓄地把光照向台上,看起來加添了戲劇感。 從某角度望上去,更像是樂隊以樂器把牆壁爆破成碎片,邊彈奏著鞭金曲調,邊重重的踏入人群⋯⋯」

[Mini Features] Music & 2016 + Hidden Agenda 4.0 Opening

2016年快將完結,今年香港樂圈大事可要數到演出場地/活動主辦 Hidden Agenda 因政府某些決定而被迫關閉 (詳見專題報導),然而在一眾樂迷和HA團隊努力下,更趕及在本月重開!有留意我們報到的讀者,都知道於本週正式開幕,更邀得美國 Political Punk 名團 Anti-Flag 領軍作開幕演出!正如 AF 歌曲所道:「Wave the flag and mindlessly salute. (But) they don’t want to talk about it!」以政治歌曲代樂迷發聲。樂隊今次更會把其經典專輯For Blood And Empire由頭到尾演奏一次,以紀念推出10週年。其他參與朋克 / 硬核樂團包括印尼的 Joey The Gangster、香港代表 King Ly Chee 和台北樂手們 共犯結構 !活動詳情及宣傳海報請參閱本帖末。

您可以在此閱讀我們的【海外特集】有關 Anti-Flag 北美巡演回顧。

// ⋯⋯ 主唱 Justin Sane 叫喊:「人生就是一個他媽的 mosh pit!」低音結他手/主唱 Chris No.2 補充道:「這是一場革命!」他們還呼籲大家關注社會的不平等現象。在場樂迷一同舉起中指以表達自己與樂隊的共同觀點。演出末段,Anti-Flag 鼓勵觀眾與身旁的人握手結交朋友。這就是朋克中經常談到的精神 —— 要和平不要戰爭。//

Looking back in 2016, the most shocking news to the local gig-goers and music lovers must be our beloved local live house Hidden Agenda being shut down by the government’s policy. (See our <Special Features> for details HERE) Thanks to local supporters and the HA Team, Hidden Agenda will officially re-open again this week in another location! They have invited political punk veterans Anti-Flag to perform at their opening ceremony. What’s more suitable than using the power of political music to speak out for the music community?! The band will also perform “Blood And Empire” album in its entirety to celebrate its 10th anniversary. Other performing bands include Indonesian punk rockers Joey The Gangster, out local hardcore legends King Ly Chee and and Taiwan representatives Accomplices! Check out the event details below.

You can read our Overseas Features of Anti-Flag’s North America tour for preview HERE.

// ……Vocalist Justin Sane scream “Life is a fucking mosh pit!” and bassist/vocalist Chris No.2 adds “This is a revolution! …… Towards the end of the set, Anti-Flag ask their fans to shake hands with the person next to the adjacent person to make new friends. Yes, that’s what punk always about — make peace not war…… //

Austin Charlie 主唱 Of Mice & Men 在近一年因將Marafan綜合症而不斷進出醫院進行手術,當所有人以為他病情有改善時,他昨天在Twitter上透露「將永不會好轉」。這個病是一種影響身體結締組織的遺傳疾病 (即全個身體也會受影響),繼而影響許多其他器官。這已使Carlile被逼結束巡演,令樂隊不斷取消或重新安排演出日期。

Of Mice & Men frontman Austin Charlie revealed in a chilling series of tweets that he will “never get better.” Carlile is suffering from Marafan syndrome, a genetic disorder affecting the body’s connective tissue. The syndrome has lead to a whole lot of other issues, forcing Carlile to end up missing tours, with the band constantly having to drop off or reschedule dates. (via metalinjection)
