27th June 2014: Crinkle Cut at The Bee, Publika!
Frances Tsen, lead vocals, and that red box that makes her voice all spacey.
Grace Foo, keyboard, basslines, and bloops and bleeps.
Bleeps used to be Ashley Choong’s job, until she dumped the bleeping iPad to concentrate on beating the cajon.
Melissa Wong, on guitar, vocal harmony, and looking serious.
Interestingly, three of them met through the choir.
Some songs would be introduced as written by respective members, and yet gelling together cohesively in their acoustic loungey sound.
Melissa’s vocal timbre is quite different from Frances’ – the difference I’d say like the difference between a single-coil and a humbucker pickup.
Ashley, or Ashleg, as she is commonly misspelled.
P.S. I’m still waiting for them to cover Sly & The Family Stone – If You Want Me To Stay (Live) right after covering Musiq Soulchild – Just Friends (Sunny), because of the similarity of the songs!
It’s always somebody’s birthday at The Bee. This time though, they gave us the leftover cake. Yes, eat your chocolate cake with M&Ms, with chili and ketchup.
The only picture I have of this sexy back!
And now, for an interlude, or outerlude if you will….
Melissa takes my camera for a spin as the rest of us play POLITIKO. All pictures from this point onwards were taken by her, for a change in pace. Interestingly, this picture shows you just how big The Bee, Publika, is, and how music venues in the Klang Valley have evolved.
Token Sabahan plays with the Sabah party.
Ashley will have none of that, and steals voters!
Melissa plays with the camera and not the cards.
Random bar shot.
The Sony Carl Zeiss Sonnar T* 135mm F1.8 ZA versus somebody’s finger.
Out of focus, but hilarious! Some voter stealing must’ve been going on!
Nevertheless, the head of the island of Borneo still won.
Crinkle Cut +1. (I’d resumed camera operator operating here.)
