CJPlayground ConcertFEYST Concert - Band Bio
#CJPlayground Concert is set to rock this side of the planet!
Featuring friends from the region Superman is Dead – Indonesia’s Best Rock Band, Anugerah Musik Indonesia (AMI) 2014 and 21Scott (Korea), OAG, Y2K, S.O.G., Couple, An Honest Mistake plus a multi-genre lineup of Malaysia’s favourite bands, head over to Cyberjaya this 15 NOV from 12pm-11.45pm!
Superman is Dead (Indonesia)
21Scott released their first album in 2006 and an EP in 2007. In 2014, the band released Rock Star, their second album.
OAG is the happiness of the music scene, and every kid who gre
w up in the throws of parents passionate enough about local music will know about OAG. Greatly reminiscent of 60’s psychedelic pop and rock & roll, this collective of troublemakers have been surging through the decades with immense respect and equally immense singles such as “Senyuman Ragamu”, “Beautifool” and “60s TV”, and it will definitely be an honour to have them on stage once more.
Who would never have heard of Y2K? To those who haven’t, they need to stop what they are doing and read up on the Malaysian punk history, pronto. Y2K have bee
n the silent killers for years since the 90s, occasionally making an appearance on stages (but never showing their faces beyond the eye slits of their stylish balaclavas) to give the most heart racing, fist pumping punk rock there is out there. Tight as a band, and really sound as general human beings, Y2K are definitely still one of the pioneer bands leading the underground scene today.
SOG – Sekumpulan Orang Gila
Having been around since the new kids’ hardcore scene of the 2000s, SOG, short for Sekumpulan Orang Gila is a five-pieve band that places themselves in the post-hardcore genre. Since 2009, SOG have been making their mark in all the local and regional venues and stages, including familiar festivals such as KL Big Party, Rawr and Uprising. They have also opened for international band Eyes Set to Kill, and intend to further push themselves across the country and eventually internationally.
“One of Rolling Stone’s 25 Best Bands on Myspace”– Rolling Stone (USA) and “… terrifically tuneful and wonderfully endearing”– Amplifier Magazine (USA), Couple is a power pop band formed in 1995, and have since recorded and released 5 demo tapes/CD-Rs. Their debut album, “Top Of The Pop” was released in April 2006 independently in Malaysia to rapturous reviews locally and internationally. The album was later picked up by Sizzleteen Records for release in America and by Wizzard In Vinyl for release in Japan. Despite receiving almost zero radio airplay in Malaysia, Couple has, against all odds, become quite the sensation (or the quiet sensation?) amongst young people of all ages in Malaysia, simply through generous file-sharing and MP3 trading (legal or otherwise), and widespread word of mouth, thanks to blogs and social networking websites like Myspace, Facebook, Friendster, LastFM, iMeem, and lots more, with kids of all ages packing out their gigs all across Malaysia and passionately singing along, word for word, to every single song they play.
An Honest Mistake
An Honest Mistake is Malaysia’s favourite pop-punk band. They are comfortable in what they have achieved and striving for more to reach, as they quote in their Facebook profile, the only thing they haven’t “reached yet is the sky”. Having opened for bands like Boys Like Girls, this five-piece pop punk extravaganza constantly play shows across South East Asia jam-packed with ferocious energy, professional showmanship and most importantly, smiles for all.
It is not everyday we see a band like The Nose now, who are determined to keep the old school attitudes of live music alive. Classifying themselves as a psychedelic funk rock band, The Nose are an exciting, fun-loving group of friends who have worked hard through a road of strong showmanship and groovy arrangements. The Nose were last year’s winners of the Global Battle of the Bands, and #CJPlayground are honoured to have them perform on our stage this year.
