You know there's something horribly wrong with the local music industry when people say...

"We're taking the local music industry to the next level... there are no other entertainers out there that consists of female singers who can sing AND dance and has a backing band playing for them.."

- a certain female singing and dancing trio
Erm hi dearies. Have you been to a pub lately?

"Why do we charge so high compared to KRU? Coz KRU are has-beens already. As for our band, they'll be releasing an album next year."

- a certain record label that rhymes with At Oys
Oh right. And your little band that can't agree doesn't sound like a bad Pearl Jam knock off, no siree. FYI, has-beens or not, KRU is STILL making money-- they've got their foot in music, videos, and movies. And they contributed largely to the R&B and rap sound of our local music industry in the 90s. And what have your bands done? Lets seee... hmmmm oh ya nothing much. Plus, KRU people are actually nice :-)

"Signing up with a label is SELLING OUT! We want to stay indie!!!"

- a certain very talented band that is having one of their rebelious rockstar diva phases

There's a reason why contracts are prepared. Read them. If the deal is bad, then yeah don't take it. If the deal is good (ie you don't have to have a boob job or a Taiwan haircut, you don't have to sing whatever they ask you to sing, etc etc), then yeah why not kan? You still need money to put food on the table kan? Ohhhh you have a vegetable patch. Okay then.

"Support our local music! Save our local music industry!"

- irritating nationalistic people

Kesiannye. Kena support for the sake of being Malaysian, not because the music is good. Aduhai. Camni I pun support Dragon Red la. We Malaysian ma.

I really hate this slogan.

"Support our local music! Save our local music industry!"

I rather the weaker acts die and leave only the strong. It's as nature intended. I like my local acts organic.

i like organic food.

ok i lie.

Adlin said...

i like whole grain food. i like oats. i like wheat. i like spirulina. i like wheat grass.

eevon said...

I hat Fat people. Maybe they should go organic too. Oh wait a minute...they don't, that's why they're fat. Hrm...

Then again...I'm not saying ALL fat people are fat because they don't eat organic. But I suppose the certain Fat people I'm talking about here eat a whole lotta horse crap to be churning equally bad horse crap.

Ahaha. Local Music Scene is an illusion man. If we do have a scene, we'll all be out there. Therreeee.. further more.

The truth is Malaysian music is all about trends, you hit the right trend then you're cool. And by that alone, we wont go far. And that hasnt change since like..10 years ago. Its hopeless. Forget about the music scene. Just play.

And oh yeah, im currently damn pissed with Laundry Soundman. Faiz nearly tumbuk the fella. Where got soundman like that, when asked to troubleshoot something he reply "i dont know, dont ask me".

Spoilted SS & Telephony Delivery's set.

Yeah, you heard me Eddie, you stupid asshole.

Ok. i puas now.

Woman said...

eevon: horse crap comes in huge sizes.

kit: as u said before, most soundguys ego besar kan.. hehehehe
