1. Hot Shower
2. I Know
Two songs for this week’s show. The band (a one-member band) is Ketchup (website), and consists of a guy named Ken Tsoi. Information was kinda scarce on Ketchup (or on Hong Kong indie acts), and I first heard about him on a collab between him, The Pancakes and Chet Lam.
Ketchup’s music is mellow, pleasant, also sung in English. The first song to be presented is Hot Shower, because, wtf, a song on hot showers? It’s from Ketchup’s 2005 album, In Love Again (see picture). The other song was from that collab, called Freeplay.
