Editor’s Note

The Team

It’s here! It’s finally here. After almost two years of waiting, Star Wars finally hits our screens and (fingers crossed) gives enthusiasts around the world the best Christmas gift of their lives. But not everyone is such a fan; in our A-Side (P18) we explain the hype a little bit to those of you who know less about the franchise, giving you a crash course on Star Wars and some conversation-worthy trivia. In our B-Side (P26), we interview none other than Nile Rodgers, the man responsible for Bowie’s ‘Let’s Dance’, Madonna’s ‘Like A Virgin’, Daft Punk’s ‘Get Lucky’, and pretty much any other classic record you can think of. We’re still reeling from his performance at Clockenflap. Stuck for ideas this festive season? Check out our What’s Hot guide (P14) for gift ideas, our pick of the best Christmas meals in town, and the essential New Year’s Eve parties for seeing in 2016. Check out our Countdown of 2015’s Best Albums (P40), and our reviews of last month’s releases in Mixer (P44). In On the Decks (P34), we chat with Shanghai-based DJ and entrepreneur Spencer Tarring about his newly launched electronic dance music platform, Pyro. Is China’s music scene about to see a revolution? We’ve got so much more for you in this issue, but before you dig in, check out our calendar of this month’s hottest events (P4), and look out for your friends in our Rewind of last month’s best parties (P58). Merry Christmas! I’ll see you in the New Year.

STAR WARS EPISODE VII: A CRASH COURSE Star Wars, as is obvious to even the least in-the-know, is a huge industry. A brainchild of filmmaker George Lucas, it’s the third highest grossing movie of all time behind Avatar and Gone With the Wind, and the franchise up until this point has been estimated to be worth over USD $30 billion. Although Star Wars resonates in thousands of different industries, from comic books, computer and console games, fan fiction, toys, literature and cosplay (it's even a lifestyle for some), the majority of its heart lies in the films.

A-SIDE Jedi master Obi Wan Kenobi and rogue smuggler Han Solo (alongside wookiee Chewbacca on the infamous starship, the Millennium Falcon). Two crucial characters helping the Rebel Alliance are droids (robots): C-3PO, the shiny gold ‘human-cyborg relations’ robot, and R2-D2, the sassy white and blue robot who depends on C-3PO to translate his bleeps and squeaks into English. Battles ensue; the Death Star (a gargantuan super weapon used by the Galactic Empire, the size of a moon and equipped with a planetdestroying superlaser) is destroyed twice; Han and Leia fall in love; Luke trains with Jedi Master Yoda so he can defeat Darth Vader, who Yoda later tells him is his father (before dying), and Leia is his sister; Vader kills Obi Wan. a redeemed Vader dies by killing the evil Sith Emperor, who tries to kill Luke for resisting the Dark Side. That's about as simplified as it gets. KEY WORDS: The Force: a metaphysical energy field that binds the galaxy together. ‘Force-sensitives’ are those who can pick up on it, and therefore have heightened senses. If they are trained in the ways of the Force, they can use it to do crazy flips through the air, use mind control, etc. Jedi: Knights of the Galaxy, trained to guard peace and justice in the Universe. Trained Forcesensitives. Lightsaber professionals. Sith: Force-sensitives who embrace the Force’s Dark Side for personal gain (aka, anyone with Darth in their name; anyone scary looking; etc). It’s easy for a force-sensitive to fall under the power of the Dark Side – those who are angry and unable to let go are more susceptible. Luke Skywalker almost fell under. His father definitely did. The Prequel Trilogy, consisting of Episodes I The Phantom Menace, II Attack of the Clones and III Revenge of the Sith, were released between 1999 and 2005. These films are often overlooked because of their bland dialogue and poor direction. However, (generalised to the nth degree), they follow the story of Anakin Skywalker (Luke’s father) and

a young Obi Wan (also known as Ben) Kenobi. The stories are set around thirty years before the story of the original trilogy. The Prequel Trilogy’s use of CGI, although not perfected, was groundbreaking. For the first time, entire worlds had been created on a computer. However, fans felt like any soul from the original movies was completely lost; the handmade sets that so many fell in love with in the originals had been exchanged for ‘cheap looking’ CGI effects. There was also huge backlash at Lucas’ character Jar Jar Binks, the floppy-eared, squeaky toy-voiced ‘Gungan’ (who you might have loved as a kid, but watching his character in episode I as an adult is headacheinducing). There’s an interesting theory that Jar Jar was in fact a Sith Lord - a hilarious concept until you YouTube search evidence and it seems like a fairly strong argument.

Cleverly, trailers and behindthe-scenes for The Force Awakens reveal very little, but we can certainly speculate as to what to look out for in the film and what moments will make crowds in the cinema tearful with nostalgia. Firstly, will we see any other recurring characters in the movie? Does that one particular name on the IMDB cast list suggest we’ll see the return of our favourite little cloaked teddy bears, the Ewoks? What has happened since the galaxy earned its freedom from the Empire and partied on down at the end of VI? How has technology developed over the 30 years since then? (Did Han and Leia’s relationship work out?) Finally, what is this First Order and how did it come into power?

FROM BOWIE TO DAFT PUNK, PRODUCER AND SONGWRITER NILE RODGERS HAS GUIDED MUSIC SINCE THE ‘70S. SO, WE DECIDED TO GIVE HIM A CALL. magine how strange it would be to switch on the radio and, 80 percent of the time, hear your own music. Would you switch it off? The feeling, for Nile Rodgers, is commonplace: “Why would I switch it off? It’s just a song coming up on the radio.” So involved is he in music that he’s all but omnipresent. Without Rodgers, we wouldn’t have Madonna’s Like A Virgin; David Bowie’s Let’s Dance; Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories; The B-52s’ ‘Love Shack’; Grace Jones’ Inside Story: the list is so lavish, so extensive, that there’s a fair amount of hand trembling as the phone connects with this man at his home in New York City. Rodgers views his life through rose-tinted spectacles. Famously, he grew up in a house of drug abusing (though loving) adults, and found himself homeless for some of his teenagedom. At the peak of the cocaine-fuelled ‘70s, he found himself addicted to the drug and admitted himself into rehab (the revelation occurred at one of Madonna’s house parties; he has been sober ever since). Nonetheless, his love for music kept him grounded. Over the past five years, he’s defeated aggressive prostate cancer, all the while churning out the world’s hits. His positivity and open-mindedness have been the reason behind so many of his strong bonds within the music industry, and have allowed him to adapt to changing trends. Nile Rodgers speaks through a smile. “I have to say that I have the best career I could have ever

I

imagined.” First, he launches into a fond description of an outfit he wore to Hocus Pocus actress Bette Midler’s annual Halloween Party some weeks before - “I had some really amazing Tom Ford velvet pants that were long, really sort of hippy tie-die bellbottoms, and also faux pony skin platform shoes, and they were burgundy and it was perfect!”. Next, he dotes on his pride and joy, his cream 1959 Fender Stratocaster, nicknamed ‘The Hitmaker’, the timbric strings of which have played in countless hit songs since Chic was formed. He dotes on the guitar like a lover: “It comes with me everywhere. It’s in bed with me right now, honestly. It’s just perfect; it sounds like ‘Nile Rodgers’, you know?” Ultimately, it’s music and its prospects that spring him out of bed in the morning, but, in his words, “You can’t detach the music from the people, because they’re almost always great. The artists that I work with, I trust them and they trust me. We just have a vibe.” His grin is more audible than ever over the phone as he adds, “Everybody I work with teaches me something. I mean, I just worked with a 13-year-old kid last week, names Liam Lis. This kid’s ripping on the track! He’s singing so great; it was amazing. And I just couldn’t help it, I tweeted out ‘Liam Lis is a true boss’, because he was absolutely killing it!” Of course, Rodger’s truly commercial career began with Chic, the notorious disco-funk supergroup responsible for a world-renowned plethora of indisputable classics, just

玫瑰色的音樂

試試想像一下,當你打開收音機時,

百分之八十的時間都聽到自己做的音樂, 那將是多麼奇怪的感覺?你會否立刻將收 音機關掉?這種感覺對於Nile Rodgers來 說,可算是家常便飯。Rodgers這麽說: 「為

什麼我會關掉它?只是一首由電台播放的 歌而已。」他就是這麽投入在自己做的音 樂裡,他就知道他的音樂無處不在。如果 沒有Nile Rodgers,我們不會有Madonna

的〈Like A Virgin〉 、David Bowie的〈Let’s Dance〉 、Daft Punk的〈Random Access

Memories〉 、The B-52s的〈Love Shack〉 和Grace Jones的〈Inside Story〉 。名單是

如此奢華亦如此廣泛。我手拿著電話聽 筒,一直等著與Rodgers在他紐約家連接 起來,卻不斷的顫抖著。

Rodgers以微笑的聲音跟我們談著,

Hitmaker」 ;從Chic成立以後就以那種弦 聲奏起了無數熱門歌曲。他視結他爲他的

說到底,也是音樂這回事和音樂的

some examples being ‘Everybody Dance’, ‘Good Times’, ‘Le Freak’ and ‘We Are Family’ (the latter composed and produced by Rodgers and Bernie Sanders for Philadelphia fourpiece Sister Sledge). But Rodgers credits his years before Chic as the fundamental milestone in his career. “Lots of people think my discography begins with Chic - it even says it on my own website - but I’m like, ‘uhh, no!’ First I learned how to produce, which is how I was able to do Chic in the first place!” Rodgers grew up orchestrating and writing classical music; he attended NYC’s prestigious Juilliard School for Performing Arts, before signing up to join the Sesame Street band, where he would meet Chic co-founder Bernie Sanders. The band were eventually signed after a long and agonising struggle, but the height of their wonder years saw a sudden boycott of disco, which suddenly no longer had the ’cool factor’. Rodgers resilience to such changes in the industry have become a key factor in his success; whereas then he turned to producing rock and roll albums for figureheads like Duran Duran and Mick Jagger, the past decade has seen him circling the EDM honeypot, and spearheading groundbreaking releases such as the disco revival smash hit ’Get Lucky’ with Daft Punk. “Right now I’m working on two records that are really wonderful and challenging. The big surprise is my work with Laura Mvula. She’s phenomenal, because her music is based around a sort of extended chamber orchestra. Because I grew up with classical music, my bond with her is becoming scary.” A foundation in classical music has certainly supported Rodgers’ craftsmanship, but his success has also been down to a sharp ear for commercial fine-tuning. “The biggest frustration I have is [Laura and I] spend so much time talking about the high level of composition and time changes and theoretical points of the composition and I say to her, ‘Laura, that’s fabulous and

wonderful; I love the way you hear music. But now it’s my job to make other people be able to hear that in a way that doesn’t presuppose that extra level of musical education and theory on behalf of the listener’. The beautiful thing is, she’s writing from her heart, and it just happens to be that complicated and wonderful.” Naturally, Rodgers embraces collaborations with artists from less of a classical standpoint. In 2014 he produced Avicii’s club banger ‘Lay Me Down’, and only has warm words towards the EDM star’s approach to composition: “Avicii hasn’t had traditional musical training. However, he is so damn good, and he is so fast, that he’s learned a language that translates into real 當然,Rodgers的商業音樂職業生涯 musical language.

到的高層次,卻又平易近人的音樂。美麗 的是,她從心寫作,寫出來的音樂恰好是 那麼複雜和精彩。」

當然,Rodgers也沒有指定要跟古典

音樂的藝人合作。在2014年,他製作了

Avicii紅遍夜店的〈Lay Me Down〉 。他對 電子跳舞音樂紅人Avicii讚口不絕, 「Avicii 沒有受過傳統的音樂訓練,但他太了不起

了,他很快的把音樂學好,更以自己的方 式表達出來。譬如說,當我跟他説我要一 個半不減和弦時,他不會在思考或問死的

問題,他會直接問我究竟是什麽音符呀, 或者是我們不如把這音換了吧。所以他並 不需要具備什麽音樂的理論與知識,但他 懂得的是怎樣令聲音奏起來好聽。」

對於一個想要在音樂行業得到什麽

就能有什麽的Rodgers來說,究竟他將會

怎麼不斷超越自己。目前來看,答案似乎 是關於劇院。 「我剛寫好了Hugh Jackman

新音樂劇〈Broadway To Oz〉中的開場音

樂。還有,我也正在寫我自己的音樂劇!這 也算是一個大冒險。」幸好,他在短期内

不會輕易放下Hitmaker: 「僅在過去三、 四個星期裡,我就爲Tom Lady

PYRO CHINA’S MUSICAL REVOLUTION: A NEW ELECTRONIC DANCE MUSIC PLATFORM

M

ainland China’s musical future is an intriguing concept. In light of its modern history, the cultural scene hasn’t had too long to catch up with the myriad subcultures of the West let alone the explosion of electronic dance music over the past decade. A journey through the substratum of Shanghai’s nightlife reveals a rich clubbing culture, but the quality of music falls behind. However, chatting with UK DJ and producer Spencer Tarring on his newly-launched electronic dance music platform Pyro, it feels like it could be on the cusp of a revolution. “There aren’t many young producers in China making their own electronic dance music,” says Tarring, “and that’s because there’s no scene. There’s no opportunity. The best gig you get is becoming a resident at a club, where you play five nights a week, the same music every night, and get paid about 500RMB per month. It’s a horrible job really.” This is where Pyro aims to make a change.

It’s a user-generated, content based site and app, similar to SoundCloud - but less prone to copyright feuds with major labels. Pyro coordinates instead with independent electronic dance music labels and digital music distribution companies around the world, licensing an unlimited number of track downloads for DJs in China. No longer will they be ripping poor quality, outdated tracks off unlicensed sites; instead, for a small monthly fee, they can pick and choose from an infinity pool of freshly released dance music from around the world. Though the platform offers much more than just DJ material. Tarring’s key vision is to encourage more of China’s youth to create their own music. Through its personal upload feature, Tarring mentions how he believes Pyro could have the ‘Yao Ming effect’ among China’s creative youth. “The middle class is rapidly rising as a percentage of the population and they’re all looking for a vehicle to express themselves.” He adds, “it’s my belief that electronic dance music

就可以隨意從音樂庫中選擇來自世界 各地剛發行的舞蹈音樂。 除了提供DJ素材之外,Tarring的 主要目標是鼓勵更多中國的青年人創 作自己的音樂。Tarring提及他為什麼 認為Pyro可以通過其個人上傳功能,對 中國青年人產生「姚明效應」 。 「中產階 級正在迅速壯大,佔人口的百分比越來 越高,他們都在尋找一個載體來表達自 己。」他補充說, 「這是我的信念,只要將 人們引導往那個方向並給予他們機會, 電子舞曲就可以成為那個載體。他們當 中可能有一個製作人或者著名DJ打響 名堂,然後突然間孩子們就會想要開始 做自己的音樂。」他的遠見在於為Pyro 建立良好的聲譽: 「我希望能與平台的 使用者建立非常緊密的聯繫,並令他們 認為Pyro是一個非常酷的品牌,一個非 常酷的、地下的場所,供他們發表自己 的音樂。我們正在經歷一段時期,人人 都想要發現新的視野,放膽走出去,做 一些令人興奮的事。」 Tarring是一位經驗非常豐富的DJ、 製作人和音樂廠牌老闆,在大約六年前 去到中國,由英國資訊科技從業員轉身 成為上海最潮的其中一個夜店M1NT的 音樂總監。根據他作為一個商人和屢獲 殊榮的DJ的經驗,他已經訂出了一個明

We’re going through a niche of people who want to discover new horizons and step out and do something exciting.” Tarring, a long-seasoned DJ, producer, and record label owner, moved to China around six years ago, from an IT job in the UK, to Music Director at one of Shanghai’s swankiest clubs, M1NT. From his experience, both as a businessman and award-winning DJ, he’s drawn a

的現場表演,還有他們的首張專輯,燃起了青春的那

團火和道出了自己的年少無知。Ellie Rowsell的歌聲 激盪,像激光切過巨型垃圾搖滾背景,又像在慢慢燃 燒中,Del Rey式的迴聲;一張原始野性的專輯。

Tame Impala Currents

The elusive Kevin Parker’s psychedelic pop brought the industry to its knees with breakup record Currents, which dives headfirst into an aching sense of desperation. Every element of opening track ’Let It Happen’ screams out for resolution, from its labyrinthine drum patterns and illusionary loops, to its purposeful push and pull between dance and indie balladry. Parker perfectly builds voluptuous soul in ‘‘Cause I’m A Man’ and apologetic apathy in ‘Yes I’m Changing’. Front to back and back to front, Currents is

!!! As If

The Internet Ego Death

One of the most underrated records of the year is !!!’s As If, in which the indie-disco veterans add newfound emphasis on a later-night timbre. Spanning quasi-deep house in ‘I Feel So Free’ and political power pop in ‘Freedom! ’15’, it’s an irresistible dancing soundtrack.

Syd that Kid and Matt Martians emerged from Odd Future this year with one of the sexiest releases of the year. In Ego Death, Syd yearns and lures over complex time changes, walking basslines and spectric guitar chords, reminding us all of the seductive power of soul music.

New Order Music Complete

No one expected New Order’s first album in a decade to be quite so tear-jerking. It’s nostalgic of their earliest days, incorporating their signature guitar linearisms into cutting new-age techno and electro-pop anthems. Highlight, ‘Nothing But A Fool’, pulls at our heartstrings.

Blur The Magic Whip

The fact our city inspired this album is exciting in itself, but its quality was a blissful surprise. The Magic Whip captures HK’s phosphorescence; it stays up into the twilight hours of Wan Chai, and struggles against loneliness in a vast populace. All this conveyed in the cheeky-chappy tones that define the British icons.

Beach House Depression Cherry

The first of two shock releases by indie duo Beach House this year, Depression Cherry, is to be slowly inhaled. The tracks build meticulously, composed of synth drones, soft guitar layers and sparse bass notes. Grand and patient, it soothes like a panorama of an Icelandic coast.

Courtney Barnett Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit

Melbourne girl-next-door Courtney Barnett paints feathery everyday narratives with effortless, wandering lyrics. The pièce de résistance, however, is her ability to wrench us from this lightheartedness - at any moment into her most profound thought, leaving us somewhat silenced.

GRIMES

ART ANGELS

Montreal singer-songwriter and producer Claire Boucher’s alter-ego Grimes made a major breakthrough for herself with her last album Visions. Three years on, Grimes has released her fourth album Art Angels, recorded in Los Angeles after she relocated there. In addition to penning better and better pop, Grimes also infuses instruments like guitar, violin, ukulele and piano into electronica, marking a change from previous efforts. Opening neo-classical track 'laughing and not being normal” shows her singing in an ethereal, otherworldly and Elizabeth Fraser-like manner; the catchiness of electro indie rock track Flesh without Blood and the strong beats of “California” make for some cheerful pop; post-punk/synth-pop “Kill V. Maim” showcases my favourite shrieking vocals from Grimes. 由加拿大蒙特利爾女唱作歌手兼製作人Claire Boucher化身成的Grimes,上一張專

ARCA

MUTANT

Even though Venezuelan producer Arca (whose real name is Alejandro Ghersi) is well-known for collaborations with Kanye West, FKA Twigs and Björk, his own works are so dark, unpredictable and experimental that it warrants the 'cult' label. The art and video contributions of London visual artist Jesse Kanda don’t hurt either. Mixtapes aside, Mutant is Arca’s second official album, and despite the nightmarish mood of each song, it already comes across as more colorful and varied compared to his previous effort Xen. 7-minute titular track 'Mutant' simulates the state of metamorphosis through restless electronic beats that create an atmosphere of horror. There are also songs like the confusing and twisted 'EN', the industrial 'Sinner', the tragic 'Hymn', as well as 'Front Load' and 'Soichiro', which evidently borrow from Japanese aesthetics. 即使來自委內瑞拉的Arca(本名Alejandro Ghersi)因曾與Kanye West、FKA Twigs、

SOULSAVERS

KUBRICK

English downtempo electronica group Soulsavers only just released their last album, Angels & Ghosts in late October. It was their second collaboration with Dave Gahan, lead singer of legendary English electronic band Depeche Mode. Angels & Ghosts was akin to a solo effort on Dave Gahan’s part, with Soulsavers acting as mere co-producers; it hardly demonstrated Rich Machin and Ian Glover’s true talents. Constrastingly, this month's release Kubrick is the first Soulsavers album that strays from their tradition of featuring guest vocalists. Now that the group has broken away from the electronic music production that defined them in previous years, they go by the genre 'orchestral rock'. All eight instrumental tracks are strongly cinematic, and the title is likely a tribute to the film director. 沒錯,英國downtempo

HOWIE LEE

MÙ CHÈ SHĀN CHŪ

It’s a delight to have Beijing electro producer Howie Lee release studio album Mù Chè Shān Chū a year after seeing him at Freespace Fest in 2014.. His music has been lauded as 'future music from Downtown Beijing', pushing the boundaries in bass music. In Mù Chè Shān Chū, which was recorded in Taiwan and released on Californian label Alpha Pup, Howie Lee explores the profound realm of electronic music by incorporating Chinese and Oriental music elements into modern electronica, resulting in a uniquely fantastical and ethereal electronic soundscape. He is particularly fond of capturing Asian percussion textures, and he collaborates with percussionist Zhang Yang on 'Sinka' and 'Shang'. 'Flame Fighters' interestingly uses electric guitars to emulate style of Chinese music. 'Bei Hai' is his most elegant song. 去年在《自由野2014》看過北京電音製作人Howie Lee的DJ set演出,一年後喜見他

DIARIES

I first came across Chestnut Bakery on a Sarah Records tribute album released on Shenzhen label BoringProductions. Diaries is a very promising debut, and while not everyone would agree with their proclamation of being “the most '90s shoegaze band in China”, it’s hard to deny the nostalgia that their sound evokes: slow, dreamy shoegaze full of reverb and jangly guitars. And unlike some contemporary albums of the genre, Diaries actually manages to show a variety of song structures and techniques. 首次聽見Chestnut Bakery的音樂,是因為他們參與深圳廠牌「無聊製造」的一張向

SPANGLE CALL LILLI LINE

GHOST IS DEAD

Spangle Call Lilli Line are no strangers to the indie electronic music scene; the Japanese band has released ten studio albums to date. The vocals by Kana Otsubo are subdued and soothing, almost as if she is muttering into the listener’s ear, which blend in well with the downtempo beats along with the occasional strings. Ghost is Dead is intimate and calming, and is bound to become your soundtrack for those late night bus rides, or that album you have to hear just before falling asleep at night. 至今已發行十張專輯的Spangle Call Lilli Line在日本獨立電子音樂圈子中不會令

人感到陌生。主唱Kana Otsubo的歌聲既柔和又舒適,仿佛在你耳邊喃喃細語;再加上

downtempo的節拍和偶爾的弦樂,搭配得恰到好處。專輯《Ghost is Dead》平靜而親 切,是那些獨自坐公車的深夜,或者是夜晚入睡前的最佳配樂。

SOMETIMES ALWAYS

THE COMPLETE RECORDINGS

Lo-fi is one of those things that sound effortless but are difficult to get right. The Complete Recordings is a compilation of EPs, splits and unreleased tracks from Indonesian act Sometimes Always, and it's a gorgeous example of bedroom pop done right. Warm and fuzzy, it includes covers of iconic indie pop anthems by bands like Felt and Another Sunny Day, but the most solid tracks are the original ones – short and sweet fuzz pop with muffled vocals that beg to be danced to. 縱然Lo-fi的感覺是漫不經心,但其實要造得好聽並不容易。印尼樂隊Sometimes

Always的合輯 《The Complete Recordings》 包括了迷你專輯裡及從未發佈的歌曲,是lo-fi

花草系的典範。除了原創作品外,他們還翻唱了Felt和Another Sunny Day的花草系經典, 但最溫暖最毛噪的,還是那些簡短、甜蜜又讓人想聞歌起舞的原創歌曲。

Hungry Ghosts This month's hottest band award goes to Hungry Ghosts, not so much for their future prospects as a group (they're dropping their guitars this month to pursue other things), but as a celebration of their contribution to our city's indie scene.

They're leaving behind their first full-length album, Hold Dear Forever, which they'll debut at Hidden Agenda on the 19th - an emotional show definitely worth catching.

YCC Juke Box I Finally Met New Order By: Yuen Chi-Chung

yccmcb.blogspot.hk

Clockenflap 2015 is over and all I wanted to specifically mention is the infamous New Order who rocked the finale stage of Clockenflap. They’ve kept fans on this side of the world waiting for three decades. Sod it, they finally came to Hong Kong and they were marvellous live. New Order’s last show in Hong Kong was held at the legendary canto nightclub Canton Disco back on the 26th April 1985. I was too young back then and missed the show. The only memory I had of their visit 30 years ago was their interview with the TVB Cantonese music programme “Enjoy Yourself Tonight”. I vaguely remember a live clip of their performance. Those were the days when music videos were hard to seek out! In the ‘90s, fans waited for the return of New Order. Rumours were running across the city like wildfire. The truth was there had been certain talks and arrangements among some sort of organisers, but the whole thing dropped eventually without any reasoning. It was like a dream came true at Clockenflap this

If You Don’t Know Now You Know Mike Piscitelli Is Fucking Awesome By: Pro B Lam problam

he pursued a career in photography by assisting some the world’s top photographers. By the age of 20 his own work had been featured in Dazed & Confused, which led to projects with publications like Rolling Stone, GQ, Marie Clare and i-D, among others. It was around this time that he cocreated Fucking Awesome with Jason Dill. In 2011 he premiered his feature length documentary, God Bless Ozzy

In the last couple of years, there have been a lot big changes in the skateboarding industry. The biggest shock is that one of the most famous skateboarding companies, Alien Workshop, shut their whole team down due to financial issues. Since then, a lot of skaters changed sponsors. Some of them even started their own companies, which was unheard of back in the days. Jason Dill, one of the ex-riders of Alien Workshop, set up a clothing line with Mike Piscitelli named ‘Fucking Awesome’ back in 2001. It was hardly a surprise that they turned this brand into a skateboarding company after Alien Workshop

closed down. With superstars Anthony Van Engelen, Dylan Rieder, Gino Iannucci on board, Fucking Awesome has quickly become one of the hottest skateboarding company in the world. But who’s Mike Piscitelli? Piscitelli is not a professional skateboarder, but a good friend of Jason Dill. He’s an award-winning video director and photographer. Raised in the San Fernando Valley, he dropped out of ninth grade to pursue skateboarding, hardcore music, and girls. He ended up working as an assistant on porn sets (behind the camera - not in front!), which inspired his interest in photography and film. At the age of 18 he moved to New York. There

‘80s Leftover Xmas Party Girl By: Prupru

eightyleftover.blogspot.hk

Beauties, are you ready for all the Xmas parties yet? Let me tell you some tips, from head to toe, to get you looking your festive best! Long straight hair can be a bit boring, so why don’t you change up the shape a bit? Simply using a hair styler is fine. Curl Secret by Babyliss is very popular, but I prefer their Big Hair curlers more, which give you very natural hair curve so the effect is a bit more subtle. For party dresses, both ASOS. com and TOBI.com are always my favourites. As well as their wide variety of choices, their cuts are

excellent at showing ladies’ curves. Moreover, they always have onsale items - you only need to spend around HK$400 for a really beautiful party dress! A lot of skin care and cosmetic brands offer gift sets for Xmas. I recommend Origins Dr. Weil’s collection for skin care, which can ease the pressure on your skin due to lack of sleep during Xmas. For cosmetics, grabbing a gift set from M.A.C. is more than enough for the perfect make up. Finally, the legs. If you want your legs to look long and slender, body glow lotion is the trick. Apply

eightyleftover

Bathina from Benefit on your legs as a highlight, and your legs will look sexy and seductive. Merry Xmas everyone! 美女們,你們都為聖誕派對準備好了

嗎?今期就讓我為大家由頭至腳準備一 下啦~

一頭長直髮對於參加派對來說會比

較 沉 悶,何 不 自 己 動 手 弄 弄。簡 單 的 用 一些美髮器就可以了。Babyliss的Curl

定能選到適合自己的款式。加上這兩個 網站長期有折扣優惠,平均400多港元 就有一條Party dress,非常化算。

聖誕節各大護膚品和化粧品品牌

都推 出優惠套 裝。護 膚套裝我 會建議 Origins的Dr.

Weil系列,因為它可以解

決因為你在聖誕期間太晚睡而引起的皮

膚炎症。至於化妝品,到M.A.C.隨便買一 個套裝也非常足夠。

最後到雙腳;要令雙腳看上去又瘦

Secret雖然受歡迎,但我略嫌它捲出來的

又長,把Body glow lotion塗上雙腿也

電出超自然的hair curl。。

腿上畫一下,雙腿頓時變得性感又迷人。

頭髮太鬈,我反而喜歡它的Big Hair,可以 至於Party

dress,我就特別喜歡

ASOS.com和TOBI.com的款式。貼身剪裁 令女生非常性感,而且選擇超多的,你一

是一個祕訣。用Benefit的Bathina在小 緊記只要稍作一點highlight就可以,不 要整對腳都塗呀!

最後在此祝大家Merry Xmas!
