K-E talks about Music

Posted in Uncategorized with tags on November 28, 2008 by Otak Biru

So, the last time i went for a gig, it was in 2003 and i was still in ITM .It was in Ampang City Plaza and it was a “tribute to Trash-Hardcore-Crossover” gig where i had my last ‘sweaty’ moment in the mosh pitt. The last stage dive and the last slamming.The last moment in the ‘underground’ world.

and the result?…that night, i got a really bad backache and i can’t feel my legs at all. All numb.I guess its how our body try to tell us..” hey, u getting old,man..stop doing the mosh!”

So, now as a working adult, i totally left the pitt.

I love music but Im a not pure musician or an artistic dude that can elaborate a drawings or a weird looking sculptures but i really appreciate live music performances. From Hard Rock to ballads ,from rave to downtempo ,from traditionals to big band ochestra.

Just recently, this year, i found another ‘pitt’ . An acoustic cafe, Cantumas Cafe in Setiawangsa (i mean Seattlewangsa..)KL. A place where a so called working adult like me can sit ,eat ,drink and chill out while listening to nice  local indie music, performed lived that will smoothen your ears after a hard day at the office.

This is where i start to know names like Wani Ardy, Estrella, Bite Me Butterfly,Rivernation ,Kabus and some more local independent (underground??) artistes. Kudos goes to those who wrote and sang their own songs in Bahasa Malaysia.  I am glad to know that , how our music are evolving in the indie scene but i wonder why our radios and TVs still keep playing those Indon songs soo hard?it’s like over and over again. I remember  that even bloody Celcom used that Indon band, Peter Pan, to do cover song ‘ Football Mad Nation’ on TV ads for their UERO CUP 08 promotion. Why didnt they just used the original artistes, Disagree and Pop Shuvit for that TV ads? and MALAM PESTA MUSIC INDONESIA in KL recently?..What the fuck is that!!??

oh yeah..i forgot ..there are about 2.5 millions foreign workers in Malaysia now and almost 50% from that are Indonesian. It is all about quantity and figures.So those mediacos and telcos just doing their job as a fucking capitalist.

Anyway..about this kakak named Yunalis (Yuna). i saw and heard her name at Urbanscapes 08 but i didnt really saw her performance that day.So, i dun really know who she is until a colleague at the office gave me a copy of her EP with self titled; YUNA.  It have 4 english songs with one Malay songs.He got it from his brother and he insisted me to listen to it.i heard she is from Kuantan?

and yeah,.i start to like her..i mean,.. her songs and voice..

I know this sounds crazy but  i started  humming this song everyday ever since. (Do you believe it?)

yeah..she wears tudung and pluck the guitar.

yeah..she wears tudung (Hijab) and pluck the guitar.

DAN SEBENARNYA by YUNA

Oh bulan
yang melayan diriku lagi
Pabila air mata membasahi pipi
Dan lagu-lagu di radio seolah-olah memerli aku
Pabila kau bersama yang lain

Adakah perasaan benci ini sebenarnya cinta
yang masih bersemadi untukmu
Dan sebenarnya ku mengharapkan
di sebalik senyumanmu itu
kau juga merindui aku

Ku enggan
berpura-pura ku bahagia
Ku enggan
melihat kau bersama si dia
Oo ku akui cemburu mula menular dalam diri
Pabila kau bersama yang lain

Adakah perasaan benci ini sebenarnya cinta
yang masih bersemadi untukmu
Dan sebenarnya ku mengharapkan
di sebalik senyumanmu itu
kau juga merindui aku

[Bridge]
Di saat kau merenung matanya
ku rebah jatuh ke bumi
Di saat kau benar benar mahu pergi
seperti ku bernafas dalam air

Adakah perasaan benci ini sebenarnya cinta
yang masih bersemadi untukmu
Dan sebenarnya ku mengharapkan
di sebalik senyumanmu itu
kau juga merindui aku

DAMN..Im 29!!

Thanks for all those kind  and also nasty Birthday wishes!

So, got couple of goals that i still seek:

1.To be a filthy-fucking- rich Malay guy without sucking up to UMNO and NEP

2. To be a powerful ‘somebody’

3. To have my own brand ( it can be any product or service, i am thinking of a women Lingerie product. )

but the truth is, im drifted away..n it seems that im wasting alot of my youth.

Goldfinger-Wasted Again (Video taken from Youtube.com)

Im wasted again
Passed out dont know who I am
Im so wasted again
Black out dont know where Ive been
Or who I am
I thought I could make it on my own
I thought I was indestructible
I had an excuse cause i was young
I thought I was so untouchable
I would throw it all away
I would throw my life away
Im wasted again
Pasted out dont know who I am
Im so wasted again
Black out dont know where Ive been
I couldnt admit that I was wrong
I didnt fit in didnt belong
I was young
I was stupid
A life of despair
I was proud
I was angry
I just didnt care
I was everything I never wanted to be
I became my enemy
I would throw it all away
I would throw my life away
Im wasted again
Pasted out dont know who I am
Im so wasted again
Black out dont know where Ive been
or who I am
They Said I had potential
They said I got whats coming to me
They say I got the devil (the devil)
and I dont know whats wrong with me
whats wrong with me
Im wasted again
Pasted out dont know who I am
So wasted again
Black out dont know where Ive been
Im wasted again
Pasted out dont know who I am
So wasted again
Black out dont know where Ive been
Cause Im wasted again (so wasted)
Im wasted again (so wasted)
Im wasted again (so wasted)
Im wasted again (so wasted)
(so wasted)
(so wasted)
(so wasted)
