22nd April 2014: Feedback Open Mic @ The Bee Publika ft The Metaphor & Gabriel Lynch / April 2014 Edition. Here’s Reza Salleh, emcee and organizer!
Andy (like Otam, but with his gruff voice crunked up to 11!)
Markiza & Peter Brown. Markiza was wearing a Save Penang Hill T-shirt, from the 80’s!
Sedsuna, awesome progressive instrumental movie-soundtrackish rock, this time with a djembe.
Raja Farouque Band. Ash’s pose is hilarious in this picture!
Farouque shredded to Steve Child Of Vai… I mean, Guns & Roses – Sweet Child Of Mine cover, done Steve Vai style.
Zaim Zaidee on bass.
Lor Phaik Sim on keyboard.
Instead of sweep picking, have some sweep fretting!
He reminds me too much of Steve Vai – that he didn’t go when Steve came down to Malaysia, was an absolute shame.
Gabriel Lynch, first featured act.
…and a synth bassist!
Drums, of course.
The Metaphor, second featured act.
Sometimes their music makes me feel like this.
Tomas (middle) also plays in a pop punk band called An Honest Mistake.
Also featuring Zaim, who filled in for the spaces that Shane left while playing guitar lightly.
Strange combination, but it worked.
Shane does Bill Withers – Ain’t No Sunshine, because he’s an old soul like that.
This would be in fact the first time I’d see Shane play guitar and sing.
Remote, hard-rocking boys.
Shiru won the prize for the night, for the theme of movie soundtracks.
