Time Out HK: We’ll Make Your Album: The Verdict

Our star judges – Anthony Wong Yiu-ming, Steve Wong Ka-keung, Kelvin Avon, and Wong Chi-chung have just helped uncover Hong Kong’s next big band. In our We’ll Make Your Album competition, we promised one unsigned act that we’d make their debut long-player. Now the results are in… and we’re making one band’s recording dream come true.

Judge profile: Steve Wong Ka-keung

As a member of Hong Kong’s most important rock band ever, Beyond, Wong Ka-keung is an inextricable part of our music history. After his older brother Ka-kui’s tragic death in 1993, Ka-keung worked with band mates Paul Wong Koon-chung and Yip Sai-wing to prolong the band’s lifespan and popularity for another eight years. Last year, Ka-keung organised a series of seminars, an exhibition, and a large-scale concert to pay tribute to his brother on the 15th anniversary of his death. He now owns his own label, Picasso Horses, and mentors rising young Canto-rock band Kolor.

Insight

Ka-keung expressed delight at discovering there is a vibrant heart to indie music in a city so dominated by Cantopop. “I never thought that they’d like to play this kind of music – I’m surprised,” he said of the bands that entered the competition. “I’m so glad to hear about these kinds of bands that can keep rocking in Hong Kong.” He reserved special praise for Chochukmo, who he heard for the first time without realising he was listening to Chinese Hongkongers. “I’d never think they were a Chinese band – they have an international sense of music.”

The Prize Package

  • Professional recording, mixing, and mastering of an album at This Music Studio
  • Marketing and promotional support
  • International distribution support
  • Mentoring and support from Jun Kung
  • A Time Out Hong Kong cover story
  • A special launch gig
  • A chance to perform at a future Diesel event
  • Free Diesel gear
  • Airplay on Diesel Radio @ www.dieselmusic.com

Chochukmo are ready to step up. A year ago, we named them among our top 20 music acts and since then they have only proven themselves even more worthy of our attention. On stages from The Wanch to the Fringe to JamFest and Manila’s A-Fest, the pink-shirted five-piece have shown a willingness to put themselves in front of crowds of all shapes and sizes, realising the humility required to build a reputation piece by piece while at the same time exhibiting a flair for performance that is unmatched in our indie scene.

The band are already the owners of three killer singles – Number One, Head to Toe, and Tell Her – all of which deftly mesh a dizzying array of styles, fusing rock’n’roll with dub, punk, Flamenco guitar licks, and the frantic wailings of crazed frontman Jan Curious.

And now they’ll have the chance to put those songs in front of an international audience. Our judges have decided: we’re making Chochukmo’s album.

That decision wasn’t easy. As good as Chochukmo are, they had serious competition. If you were looking for proof that our indie scene was on the up, you need look no further than the We’ll Make Your Album project for evidence. From a strong field of entries, no fewer than seven bands got nods from our judges in their respective top threes. The new wave synth rock of A Roller Control was especially popular with our judges, who heralded the band’s fresh sound and exciting dynamism. Meanwhile, long-time scenesters The Sinister Left were lauded for their beautifully arranged and ethereal art rock, and Applicants brought a burst of fresh electronic-infused indie pop to the table from lands afar.

Chochukmo, however, stood out for their energy, character, confidence, and sheer musicianship. This is a band with the talent and the attitude to become internationally known. We intend to help them make that happen. Keep an eye on Time Out in the coming weeks to follow their progress.

    I am trying to find a good blogging site where I can actually get viewers or readers to view my blog. I have tried blogspot and live journal with no real success. Does anyone know of any good sites where I can actually blog and get readers?. . Another thing is any tips to get readers to your blogs? Should you follow a theme or how do you need to advertise or if you keep posting will they come to you?. . Please no spam. Thanks.
