Junk Night Report

Junk Night

Some of my friends are going to kill me for taking this long to post up pictures from our Junk Night performance, but it's not my fault! Work has a habit of piling up just when you least expect it, or want it to (which is pretty much all the time).

Anyway, the pictures taken with my gf's camera wasn't all that great so I had to pilfer some shots from Nick Tay, who by the way is an excellent photographer. Props to him!

All in all, the performance went really well. All of us were pretty chilled and relax before the performance. We didn't practice all that much, and in the end had to rely on our stupendously amazing talent to see us through...errr...right.

Our set was acoustic-based (think Nirvana unplugged, only without the rumpled, just-got-out-of-bed attire), which made it well suited to be the first performance of the night. As anyone who has performed will know, being the first is not necessarily a good thing. The crowd (especially Malaysian crowds) can be darn kayu during the first few hours! Seeing their emotionless faces stare back at you while you perform is enough to send any musician into a sobbing fit.

Thankfully, the crowd at Laundry was much, much more responsive than usual. I guess that was partly due to the huge amount of friends who turned up in support. Thank God for friends eh :) Although the manner in which some of them showed their support could be construed as quite gay, I know it's the thought that counts.

All in all, a great big thanks and shout out to the band members listed below:

Janice Yap - for without her, we wouldn't even be on stage
Leroy - for his ultra-high, ball-shrinking vocals which had the sound crew confused as to his gender
Amanda - for not killing us when she drove a few of us to Laundry
Simon - for his deft touch at handling testicle-shaped instruments
Eu Jin - for being everything a solid bassist should be
