HK Magazine: How does it feel to be in the “Rocky Horror Show”? There are a lot of die-hard fans out there and a lot of expectations. Edwin Liew: I’m absolutely thrilled to be in this huge cult show, which apparently has had people celebrating uninhibited, obscene madness for...
HK Magazine: How did Very Ape get together? Hisakazu Koya: We’re all Japanese. The Japanese community in Hong Kong is not so big, and the music community within that is even smaller. I owned a studio and did engineering, and the two other guys were musicians, so they came here to jam. The...
