Lucky Cat Sat 18th July 2015 - Hong Kong in the 60s

Here is last Saturday's show with Chris and Mei Yau from Hong Kong in the 60s.
We talked about their new EP The Small Sound, Mei Yau brought in some old cassettes, Chris brought in a nice Sublime Frequencies CD and I played some vinyl.
The dim sum lunch box was filled with leftovers (ma pao dofu and emperor chicken) and snacks (lizardfish lollipops, garlic crisps and Korean onion rings).

Happy Birthday Zoë! Great catching up with Chris and Mei Yau (I just bought my tote). Loved the Sam Hui song (Cantonese actually goes really well with rock and roll) and reggae "China Gate" (have you heard Sun Ra's version?), but I think I'll pass on the lizard fish. Hope you're doing well!
