Now on to more gig pictures!

20th August 2008 – Timeout KL: On The Up at No Black Tie!

Touchess, for some smooth R&B.

Silent Scenery, for the exact opposite – spacy interludes and post-rock.

This just looks like the hypnotic, delicate bit before it goes into destructive mayhem. And boy, can these boys go into destructive mayhem!

Sundae, a joyful interlude of acoustica.

Then there was Tokyo Blue. Sorry Ywenna this has to be the best angle I can get which has any light on you!

Haha you guys set me up to do a drum solo again!

But drum solos are only expected of a band full of accomplished virtuosos who have played with local legends like Jerry Felix, the Longest Playing Drummer in the Malaysian music industry. Here’s Hiro!

I knew him only as the bassist of Throne Away. Who’d have known!

Poova was the vocalist after Jaclyn Victor left Jerry’s band.

She has incredible vocal power and stage presence!

Interestingly, Tokyo Blue is kinda… bipolar. On songs with Poova they take on a soulful sound, but during the instrumentals you get dramatic jazz.

So, after which, we took some band shots.

A700 with Sigma 17-35mm F2.8-4 EX on tripod, long exposure, and I popped the flash two times for each shot, to expose the front two and the back two band members.

Most of these shots are combined from two or more shots.

    bugger.. the band shots veri the dave hill kinda style punya colours one! especially the 1st one! =P and the last one too.. i think because of the shadow.. and the skin tones of the fellas.. very create kinda harsh shadows and some kinda surreal feeling..

    noel: Thanks man! See you.

    Will: Alright! Ironically that’s the one band I don’t have a clue about.

    flysheep: Indeed, the Minolta 50mm F1.4 Original. It’s technically ‘crap’ brightline bokeh but it worked well for this shot.

    KJ: I did a bit of large radius Unsharp Mask before resizing… it wasn’t that contrasty before this.
