Madman's Work by Paul Wong Koon-chung

Rocker Paul Wong Koon-chung is back with a mini-album that shows there is life after Beyond.

Madman's Work has five new songs, and live recordings of two from Wong's show at the Coliseum earlier this year.

Unlike his previous album, the self-financed, surprisingly mainstream I Exist, the new album sees Wong revisit his rock 'n' roll roots.
