Ram A New Dose Of Funk Rock

29th October 2009: The Ramanados live at UrbanAttic, Capsquare KL!

But first, DJ Dizzle Fizzo!

It was Stevie’s birthday and guess what he got, a most sweet Fender Stratocaster!

He immediately got to rocking with it.

The night was filled with a lot of funky covers; Jamiroquai – Love Foolosophy, Red Hot Chili Peppers – Havana Affair, Incubus – Pardon Me and the ever bouncy Red Hot Chili Peppers – Purple Stain!

Of course, they have originals like Gypsy Girl. But I am glad for the night celebrated the Red Hot Chili Peppers and other like-minded sounds because very few bands actually do so!

The second set had not-too-early Incubus, with Stellar, Wish You Were Here and The Warmth.

When Jared the drummer kinda looks like Chad Smith you know they gotta do more Red Hot Chili Peppers covers like Suck My Kiss and Around The World

…this picture reminds me of John Frusciante sitting down at Slane Castle playing Under The Bridge. Which is what Stevie was doing, too!

Camellia the hitz.fm Cruiser!

I borrowed Jie Qiang’s Sigma 12-24mm F4.5-5.6 EX DG for this!

More covers like Incubus – Drive

And a big singalong for U2 – With Or Without You.

Again, at 12mm on the full-frame Sony A900…

Deep inside of a parallel universe… it’s getting harder to tell what came first, and!

You’d be surprised to see how many people were singing along to Californication-era Red Hot Chili Peppers!

This reminds me of a picture of Bob Marley – they did his Redemption Song.

Some Indian ditty and Mahesh chimes in!

Ash guest drums…

…while Jared (in the back sings.)

The other covers were Sting – Walking On The Moon, Incubus – Are You In, and their perennial remixes of OasisShe’s Electric and Wonderwall.

Greg and I have this tradition of camwhoring after every gig. The purple tint of this shot just makes us look like the Two-Headed Monster from Sesame Street!

    Yes, this is the only SLR lens in the world that does 12mm on full-frame!

    There is also a 12mm F5.6 but that’s for rangefinders which do not have mirrors so that does not count.
