Godfather of Hong Kong underground/indie rock.
I bought their discography bag-set few months ago but I'm not really digging it. I have to say their music is pretty boring imo. It seems that they are just trying to express their political viewpoints and dont really care about the music itself. I'm uploading their albums just because I think some people might dig this sort of political stuff, or just curious about what they sound like.

This is their first album, track 6-8 are English versions of track 1-3. To me this is their best album, pretty raw punk rock.
