and… an interview with Rock in China! Tony Reno, the moderator of the show, wanted to do a China-only issue since a couple of months. Therefore, beginning of last week, we got a Skype call from him asking us about the Chinese scene and our website. As usual, listening to the own voice is an interesting experience :-). And I definitely need a new mic, the one I use just makes too many side noises.

Tony Reno met the band Tookoo on the Rock it! Event in Hongkong and unfortunately as they sing in English they can not be played in the show. However Tookoo gave Tony a compilation CD of punk and emo tracks, of which the first two songs of the show are taken. If you don’t know Tookoo, check them out at the Wiki. They are China’s finest in regard of Emo Rock music and actually, they are the first!

Please also check out and comment on this show.

Hope you like the show and the interview!

Rock on!!!
