Heya folkies,

Furthermore, The Substation has invited us for this occasion closing the event. Come earlier, of course there are other fantastic bands like the legendary Obs, awesome Psalms, indie jazz darlings Moods, its going to be a night to remember.

Heya Folkies,

Last Saturday night was a blast for us. Good friends and good music, though going home was quite a feat, with our bratmobile getting stuck in the process. Nevertheless we ended the year on a positive note.

We played a couple of new songs, some went well, some went astray. 2012 will be our 15th year being a band. Let’s hope 2012 will be kind to us, and make us complete the album by June this year if everything goes well.

A dozen of new materials, editing, splicing, configuring, and creative juices flowing. Till more updates, we love you!

NYE Countdown at Marina Barrage

•December 23, 2011 • Leave a Comment

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.

Working Hard In The Studio

•November 9, 2011 • Leave a Comment

We have been working diligently in the studio for the last couple of months and that is the reason why we are rarely seen live these days. Perhaps that is what we need to be focusing on, our music and perfecting our sound. Capturing the same live spirit and bringing it into the studio is different, and we have experienced wonderful ideas in the studio. Some are spontaneous while others were pure genius.
New materials are well in the process, all waiting to be sculpted and documented. We have a New Year’s Eve appearance alongside our legendary reggae outfit Bushmen and the mighty Bloco Singapura. All this will be happening at the Marina Barrage. Really looking forward to this one.
2012 will be a good year, if we can release some tracks. What is a definition of an album these days anyway? We will be around folks no matter how difficult the situation of the scene is if there is ever a scene needless to say. We love performing and we love creating.
