Moonshine Turns 5

Moonshine: A Homemade Music Show had its 5th Anniversary on the 25th of November 2010. Here’s Narmi, punk rock drummer turned sensitive guitar crooner, flanked by Jeremy and Izaad.

Asmidar, who is out of this world! She goes all worldly and fusion on us. And yet despite the eccentricity there is a danceable poppiness and a earthly vibe from her music.

Figure Of Speech, rapper who goes straight to the source and hits you with a deep line. One in the political commentary lane, just like his hero, Gil Scott Heron.

All you other rappers out there better know who Gil is – a black guy who just read poetry over music, and that became rap as we know it. He was the Godfather of Rap.

I’d met him earlier, where he was in talks in a collaboration with a certain sweetheart of the local music scene. I can’t wait!

Mia Palencia the shortly returning songbird! There is something about her voice that makes her distinct, and soothing while still having a certain edge.

I seem to be in the habit of taking pictures of performers’ feet.

In case you’ve ever wondered what Laundry Bar looks like, here it is. I brought my Sigma 12-24mm F4.5-5.6 EX DG for the first time to a gig!

Reza Salleh, Moonshine organizer, takes the stage.

Hanafi rocking again with a Fender Jaguar, this time in black.

Reza was to launch his album the next day. As I tend to blog in chronological order where it comes to gigs, you’ll know what to expect next.

Melina on bass.

From the back. Hello Steph on drums!

Then came a shiny cocoon.

It wasn’t Jay Kay, it was Sharon… O.

She, Melina and Steph make the Yeah Yeah Yeahs tribute band, Hamsterdamnaged.

Now this is what we call a rock show!

Man she was bobbing all over stage that I had to use the flash.

Yeah, there’s a lot of Karen O in her!


I didn’t get her name, but she was singing on stage with Auburn.

Aidil rips up a very heavy, driven bass. I have to say, I like this new sound!

Steph on drums again. Tak pancit ker? (Won’t you be exhausted flat?)

And of course, Izuan, main man.


Indie rock, in case you can’t tell from their dressing.
