Feedback Open Mic at Cloth & Clef, a certain 8th November 2008.
R.I.P. (Rock In Peace) Gene Simmons!
Yes, they were still in the mood for Halloween. If you saw how much they decked out the place, you wouldn’t want to take them down, either.
This man waits, nevertheless.
The Theory Of Change. They had an angry song, Killing Anna. Wow.
George, meanwhile, was emo with a capital E.
Steph has been drumming for a very, very long time.
Reza Salleh, Melina William, and their FANS!
Oh look mom I can do diptychs too!
Boohoo, I used to do diptychs before I even knew they were called diptychs. Left, Nick Davis with some angry acoustica; right, Wani Ardy with some mellow acoustica.
Ferns, who has a really nifty CD cover. Go check it out.
Left, guitarist; right, his effects cheat sheet.
Left, Haziq; right, Anuar. Anuar asked us what we wanted – another sad song, or the blues. I voted for the blues and was the majority.
Left, Tom; right, his delay/loop pedal.
I love it when white singer-songwriter dudes come and they play with delay/loop pedals! A few examplary one-man-band bands I have witnessed and enjoyed were Jamie Woon, David Knight and Tom I-don’t-know-his-surname.
Petrina was doing a hilarious
Darren Ashley rips out a soulful rockin’ tune and wakes everybody-the-f-up to get up and jive. He is that cool. Gotta dig the beat-boxing skills, yo!
He got some white people to dance to Sweet Home Alabama. I think. But then, white guys (and girls) dance to anything. That’s why they call it the white guy dance. Because they don’t have to listen to cool music to dance. Not that Lynyrd Skynyrd is not cool. After years of shouting FREEBIRD! at every performer who takes a pause between songs, I still have not seen it happen.
And whoa, he has long fingers. I tried to replicate the same position. What a stretch!
Ending the night were crowd-shakers The Ramanados. What a refreshing gig that was!
