Chungking | December 19, 2003


p. I've just been to see Chungking, my favourite band of 2003. Their debut album We Travel Fast is definitely my top album of the year, and with a gorgeous lead singer and a bass player who looks like a young Ron Jeremy, you can't go wrong. So if you're yet to experience Chungking, I strongly recommend going out and buying their album. You won't regret it.

How could this be on December 19 if it’s December 18 right now?

Alex, it depends where you are. I’m in Montreal and there is a difference of at least 5 hours, so in Brighton, it is Dec 19 5 hours sooner.

Did I get it right?

It’s like December 19 here quite a bit before the rest of the world :) GMT +8 anyone?

Just had a quick listen. Excellent recommendation - added to the chrimbo list.

Not sure about the virtues of looking like a young Ron Jeremy though ;)

The lead singer looks like Chrissy Hynde of the Pretenders. From what little bit of the video I watched on their site, she sounds a lot like Hynde as well. Not that that’s a bad thing…

Better than looking like an old Ron Jeremy :-)

I guess that would depend what department we’re talking about.

It’s friday night and we probably shouldn’t go there ;)

Defiantly? Spellcheck always suggests that for me as well. ;)
