Sloshed but clear…

Friday 29 April 2011, 4.51am HKT

It’s 4.05 am on Friday 29/4 and I’m seriously sloshed (i.e. drunk). After the end of this post, I wouldn’t have known what the heck I’ve blogged. Forgive and forget. Ignore typos, because I’m sloshed.

I just been to the bc Unplugged gig at The Wanch, featuring Sue Shearman, Lani Giro and the Tick Tock Museum.

Highlights: Tick Tock Museum was really the highlight. Great potential, if only they realised it. They don’t have the “edge” yet, but it’ll come with the right “push.” God, they could be soooo good.

In case I never made this public (here or elsewhere), I *did* work for a short while in talent management. I know a good thing when I see one. Tick Tock has “it.”

Here are some pics of the evening (below).

Apologies for the quality, angle, resolution, etc. of the pics. I was already sloshed at the time (as I am now).

On the left, Ah Gau (“The Nine”? — couldn’t possibly be “The Dog”…) with the electric guitar (and she’s ain’t bad) and Sony Cheng on the right in the green cardigan. I can’t remember the lead vocal (centre) — because I was sloshed (as I am now).

(Person in the white tee with the back towards us is Sue Shearman.)

Noooo, it’s not because Tick Tock’s a girl band. (Well, yeah, it is, but it’s not.) It’s because they could go far. FAR.

So there. Hic!

My lords, ladies and gentlemen, and all you who are not sitting on a cushion, Tick Tock’s the name, indie rock’s the game — they’re beauts, they’re cutes — they’re the action, they’re your traction — the Dames of the Untamed, the Defenders of the Fenders, the Lassies of Nasties — aaiiiiI giiiiiive you thaaa Tiiiiiiick Tooooock Muuuuuuseum!

    Hey,You are so serious,or you were sloshed?haha,nice chat yesterday!


    • Serious? Moi? You’ve got to be kidding me! It was really nice meeting you and your mates. You know, practically everyone there last night are the kind of people who grew up playing bass drums or some kind of instrument, gone through gigs & places like the (infamous) Marquee Club in London, etc, etc, etc, so we know a good thing when we see one. “Woman” (comment above) seemed impressed with you – and she’s in Inner Mongolia!

      Noooo, Sony, the slosh bit is only tongue-in-cheek. I grew up mainly in Europe, where people start drinking around 6 to 10 years old. I ONLY had 5 pints of Guinness, 3 vodkas and a few other drinks, that’s all.

      Nice one. I welcome you to my blog. You guys need drip marketing.
