Dear Friends of One Arm Bear,
We wish you all a fabulous year of the Rabbit!
I know we haven't posted for a while, so to celebrate the New Year, we have a video clip from our latest performance!
This was the first time we performed as a duo in Hong Kong. Brand New Spring (acoustic)! Really miss playing as a whole band, but this performance sparks us to continue our band, no matter where we are!
We will have more cooking for the band very soon, new songs, more performances, maybe we can release a new EP (recording in both Vancouver and HK)!
I hope this year will be a very exciting year for the band!
Stay tuned to our facebook group, xanga, and alivenotdead! :)
One Arm Bear sincerely thanks all of you for your love and support!
I know we haven't updated for a while, but here's a very short and sweet one...
we'll update shortly after.... promise! ;)
To our dear friends in HK, come catch One Arm Bear at the Wanch, 54 Jaffe Rd, Wanchai, TOMORROW NIGHT (Tuesday Oct 26) 9PM!
Unfortunately, our bro Edison couldn't make it over to HK at this time, so our friend Neo (from Old Man on a Chair) will be helping us out on guitar.
Hope to see you all!
*PS: Ed and OAB might see you all later this year? :D
To the 160 people who viewed this page in the past 2 weeks: Hi!
We are still alive.
Just working on different stuff right now. Edison and Mati are working with a couple other musicians in a new project, will post up videos after our first show - Early July, maybe?
Patrick is... doing some music stuff in Hong Kong (right Patrick?)
Kelvin is .. working hard in Hong Kong. He's super busy last I heard..
Pic depicting the Lego Rock Band game..lol
A video of me! Well technically it's only my foot and my blue socks (which I got from HK last Summer.).
Testing out the Gon Bops Cajon drum that I recently got... good for coffee house gigs?
Can't wait to play it live somewhere. Still learning right now, but it's pretty easy to pretend my way into a pop song haha. Boom. Bak. Ah boomboom bak.... =D
Long time no see.. I've been busy playing around with my new toys. Will upload some vids for all of you to see soon.
But for now, here's something refreshing.
Metallica - done in SMOOTH JAZZ!
Another one for good measure: Louie Armstrong - done in metal.
A fitting title..
It's been over 2 months since Patrick and Kelvin went back to HK, and they seem to be doing alright. Both found full time jobs and are now settling down....
Pat sent over a demo we recorded last year during camping, saying he got some new ideas for it, so I took the time to record a drum track today and sent it over. Slowly working...
I was gonna record it at home but then someone broke into my car and stole my macbook over Christmas and I had to go to my friends at AFC to borrow their drums and recording equipment...
So that's the musical part.
Job-wise I'm still searching for the right one, all the while finishing my mediation/negotiation certificate. Challenging, but I'm enjoying the process more that I thought.
'till next time
Was listening to Our Lady Peace for over an hour last night, the "Happiness..." album is still awesome as ever.
Two tracks for your viewing pleasure. All the youtube music videos are now under "Vevo" subpage. Whatever it is, I hope it works for all of you overseas.
