Moonshine, February 2011!


Moonshine: A Homemade Music Show, 10th February 2011, at Laundry Bar. Here’s a round of Monopoly going on outside!


Reza Salleh, organizer.


Seth Lael, who plays whatever you can play with a banjo.


Also guest starring his wife, Shelley Leong!


She can smell curry laksa again and other Malaysian delights.


Love the on-stage reactions!


Shelley was too jetlagged to perform her own set, so she took turns and sang together with Seth.


I’d admit this was the first time in the longest that I’d seen Shelley without a guitar!


The rocking Tashya’s Ink.


I told this guitarist that he reminded me so much of Randy Rhoads, with all his riffs. He didn’t know who Randy was, though the riffs were all there, citing Mark Tremonti as an influence instead.

That said I have to credit Mark for going all out in Alter Bridge – sure there were some bits of suppressed genius in Creed but nothing like in Alter Bridge.


Another husband and wife this time with Lab Rat!


And, of course, brothers.


Syahrul of Love Me Butch.


Halfway Kings, with the poetic Adeline.


This was a far more confident set. They’ve come a long way!


Gotta love the gritty lyrics. You don’t get much bands with so much vocal clarity these days.


Joachim on guitar, the only instrument in the band.


The addition of pedals is new! I sold him my wah pedal. Unfortunately it cringefully spoiled while they were performing a wah-ful acoustic song on stage! For that I apologize. My wah had been sitting around for ages not wah-ing.


And now, for some outtakes from outside, at Gelato. From left to right: Yi Ching, Bryan, Xiang, and me on a Samsung Galaxy Tab 7″, for sh*ts and giggles.


Big-eyed Yi Ching.
