NYE Countdown at Marina Barrage

Hello Friends,

with the trains in revolt, man in uniform shooting himself in a toilet cubicle and a racist community leader on national TV; it is such a depressing way to end the year. It is expected, with the population hitting 5 million mark, its definitely turning topsy turvy.

The only way to cure these negativities is to fill them in with festivities. Find an escape to usher in the new year. FInd new resolutions and be merry!

It’s been a while since we have played live. A nice comeback gig for the year’s end organized by The Bloco Singapura Family. We have been invited to play alongside The Bushmen, Novo Bloco, Rhythm De Passion and The Dub Skankin’ High on New Years eve. Well, how nice is that?

The last time we played with Bushmen was way back in 1999, and it was on a Saturday Afternoon at Youth Park. A gig where we we played for each other.

Last week we were invited to be part of Najip Ali’s new TV series called ‘Kita Gerek’. We had loads of fun being thrown into the spot like a chihuahua doing a lap dance.

I think it will be shown next year on Suria. We covered M Nasir’s (Kembara) “Duit”, a straight Scorpionesque riffy song about money.
