Hong Kong’s punk scene is miniscule, but that hasn’t stopped tiny little pockets of punk loving maniacs to gather in dingy little practice rooms all over Hong Kong to play the music that they love. A band that has been fighting the good fight for a number of years now is Two Finger Salute. A band of merry men (maybe not all “merry” – there’s one crazy grouchy mofo in the band as well who goes by the nickname “granpa” hahaha) who have made Hong Kong home for the past few years, have been easily the most active amongst HK’s punk rock acts having already released a debut full length Anger & Pride, and have been busy laying down the tracks for their follow up to be released this year.
“We have our first show of 2019 on Friday 18th January. It’s a slot at The Wanch and helps to brush off the cobwebs and try some new tracks.
We’ve almost completed the new album and plan to release the first single pretty soon. With members traveling, two getting married, one hospitalised and us generally being out of the city for the holidays, it’s taken longer than expected to finish off. We’re back on form now.
We’re all looking forward to 2019 and already working on gigs in Japan and the rest of Asia. Hopefully Europe’s in the mix as well.”
