Read an in-depth review of the CD at Hong Kong Independent Music Blog here.
The CD was launched in the form of two launch parties on the 20th and 26th of September 2008, and the featured bands’ performances were split between the two gigs.
Here are some comments about the release parties from the bands:
The garden of Underground is the garden of love.
We feel love.
‘Look at me mum! We got put on a CD!’
And this is super cool, for all the bands involved; there’s no denying it. Not only did we get a chance to show off on the shiny disks, we also got to get on stage and show off by getting ourselves all sweaty and making a noise with some of our friends. We also got to get drunk. That’s pretty much all the reasons anybody gets into a band right there.
Harry [Born to Hula]
It has always been a privilege to play for The Underground events, and tobe chosen with promising HK indie bands for a compilation CD gives us sucha tremendous feeling of accomplishmen.
[The Sinister Left]
