The Deadnotes; Honesty In Music – For many reasons, singers and music makers might not be able to express themselves freely. When it comes to music, they have to deal with market demand. If it calls for romantic moments, then this will be their theme. Being an indie band, The Deadnotes from Germany sets off to break this rule. They have several good samples of being honest in their music.
– Make Up
This band has made music since the members were teens. They were not stopping, even though their popularity raises very slowly. Make Up is definitely not their first single. Yet, it gets public attention for its critics on beauty standard. Many other songs have been under the same topic, but The Deadnotes take different point of view.

The lyrics are written from first person POV, highlighting the doubt and internal self-conflict. There is nothing wrong with their mind, but community judgement makes them think they are not okay. People tend to have such opinion including to online gambling players in https://agenbola108.cc until they actually make some winnings.

– Cling To You
Compared to the other songs, The Deadnotes admits that Cling To You has more positive vibe with somehow dancing-line tunes. It has catchy melody, which make the members agree to release it as single. The process of making this is quite short, only three days including the studio and music video recording.

The lyrics tells people to listen to their guts feeling. They see that many people are forced to make certain decision. They still need to do it, even though the result is not good for them or other party. Instead of being hopeless, you should break free and be yourself.

– Courage
Following other songs, Courage is made to convey specific message to the society. This time, The Deadnotes discuss about mental health issue. Instead of learning from stories, the lyrics are written from close friend’s experiences. Members admit that many people they know in music industry are struggling to cope with mental condition.

There is another special action for this song; people who buy their ticket or souvenirs will include donation for mental health institution. The Deadnotes will also have extensive tour shows in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and many more.

Music could be used to deliver messages. It is a universal language, great communicator to convey feelings and concerns. Holding onto this power, The Deadnotes will keep making music with honest lyric, hoping for their voice to be heard.

Biografi Band Rocket Rockers, Serta Masalah Yang Kerap Dihadapi

www.thesirenssound.comBiografi Band Rocket Rockers, Serta Masalah Yang Kerap Dihadapi. Aska Pratama, badan band Rocket Rockers luang senyap dikala mengikuti kemauan Ucay mundur dari band yang membesarkan namanya itu. Si vokalis memilah angkat kaki pada 2013 kemudian dengan alibi mau memahami agama.Biografi Band Rocket Rockers, Serta Masalah Yang Kerap DihadapiAska Pratama, badan band Rocket Rockers luang senyap dikala mengikuti kemauan Ucay mundur dari band yang membesarkan namanya itu. Si vokalis memilah angkat kaki pada 2013 kemudian dengan alibi mau memahami agama.

Mengikuti perihal itu, tiba- tiba saja Aska kolam tersambar petir. Gimana tidak. Untuk beberapa besar band, kehadiran vokalis mengutip andil berarti serta vital. Vokalis ialah wujud akhir cengkal, lini terdahulu. Tidak sedikit band namanya memudar yang dibiarkan si vokalis.

” Luang berguncang. Betul namanya vokalisnya pergi, tentu rasanya seperti yang berat sebelah.

Yang jadi permasalahan, Aska saat ini harus membahu tanggung jawab besar, jadi vokalis mengambil alih Ucay. Nyatanya mengetuai band di atas pentas bukan kali awal beliau jalani. Mengenang, durasi Ucay sedang tercampur dalam band, Aska sering menghibur pemirsa dengan suaranya sembari memetik gitar.

” Sebab Rocket Rockers kan basicnya vokalnya 2. Aku bersenandung serta Ucay pula bersenandung,” ucapnya.

Tetapi beliau merasa belum dapat melawan marwahnya Ucay, yang cerdas serta apik berhubungan dengan pemirsa dari atas pentas. Apalagi Aska berterus terang luang aneh kala Rocket Rockers manggung berbulan- bulan sehabis ditinggal Ucay.

” 4 bulan awal( sehabis Ucay Angkat kaki), aku enggak ngerti wajib mengapa,” kenangnya sembari kening jidat.

Buat menyiasatinya, Aska bersama kawan- kawan Rocket Rockers sering menaikkan jumlah lagu yang dimainkan di atas pentas. Perihal ini bermaksud supaya interaksi yang dicoba kepada pemirsa terus menjadi sedikit.

” Umumnya manggung kita 11 lagu. Cocok aku gantiin Ucay, saat ini jadi 15- 16 lagu. Motong durasi supaya enggak ngomong( dengan pemirsa),” kata ia.

Tetapi, Aska mempunyai kemauan kokoh buat berlatih serta menyesuaikan diri jadi vokalis penuh Rocket Rockers. Dalam kurun durasi yang lumayan pendek, ia dapat membuat asli dirinya selaku vokalis sekalian gitaris yang mengetuai Rocket Rockers masing- masing kali manggung.

” Kesimpulannya aku berlatih, aku pancaran di radio pula, coba- coba ngobrol. Jika Ucay itu dahulu metode interaksinya dengan ceramah, Jika aku beda, aku interaksi dengan mereka. Jadi mereka seolah dibawa di pentas, pokoknya terdapat interaksi yang lebih intens,” jelasnya afdal.

Kembali Ditinggal Personel

Rocket Rockers kembali ditinggal personelnya pada Ramadhan tahun 2018. Kali ini si gitaris, Rizky Fadli nama lain Lowp yang memilah angkat kaki karena mau fokus memahami agama. Berita itu lumayan memerangahkan, mengenang kebersamaan Lowp bersama tim asal Bandung itu telah sepanjang 18 tahun.

Tetapi lagi- lagi bagi Aska, itu bukan perkara besar. Band yang dibangun bersama kawan- kawannya semenjak 1999 itu senantiasa saja dapat bertahan dari permasalahan yang dialami, walaupun terseok- seok. Jika tutur Aska, Rocket Rockers sanggup bertahan sebab tiap anggotanya silih melengketkan dengan metode yang seimbang serta tembus pandang.

” Kita terbuka. Apalagi dari permasalahan finansial penjatahan pendapatan. Umumnya kan jika band, yang founder bisa demikian persen, yang masuknya belum lama bisa demikian persen, yang skill- nya lazim saja bisa demikian persen. Tetapi jika kita, penjatahannya serupa datar,” paparnya.

Tim band yang mengawali debut di kota Bandung, Jawa Barat, itu pula tidak sempat mempunyai sasaran pendapatan setinggi langit. Seluruh konsep cetak biru Rocket Rockers dicoba dengan cara berangsur- angsur untuk menjauhi titik berat yang sering membuat band retak sampai menjurus bubar.

“ Kita mimpinya enggak sempat gimana. Biasa. Sesimpel mempertimbangkan caption apa di Instagram buat besok hari. Mengapa biasa? Jika kita mempraktikkan mimpinya sangat jauh, dapat kecewa jika enggak kecapai,” tutur ia lagi.

Biarpun begitu, Aska membenarkan rasa bosan ngeband sering tiba. Umumnya Rocket Rockers menewaskan rasa jenuh dengan melaksanakan remake lagu dari musisi lain.

“ Kita kerap amat sangat kerja sama. Semacam misalnya pada 2017 kita pula remake lagunya Maliq& dEssentials, Pilihanku,” ucapnya.

Tiap badan Rocket Rockers pula diperbolehkan mendirikan cetak biru yang lain di luar band itu. Ambil contoh yang baru- baru ini dicoba Aska. Ia bekerja sama dengan biduan Ifan Ohsi meluncurkan suatu singel bertajuk Rasakan Bumi yang mengaitkan sahabat tunarungu.

“ Kita banyak kerja sama. Belum lama aku dengan Ifan Ohsi, mengadakan lagunya. Tetapi sepanjang sedang dapat kita libatkan, aku tentu libatkan pula Rocket Rockers,” jelas ia.

Nyaris Bubar sebab Lagu Melayu

Rocket Rockers memanglah sukses bertahan sepanjang 21 tahun. Tetapi Aska berterus terang band itu mempunyai titik terendahnya dekat medio tahun 2000an.

Gara- garanya album Rocket Rockers ketiga berjudul Better Season( 2008) tidak menyambangi diluncurkan pihak merek yang dahulu dinaungi Sony Music. Berjayanya nada melayu jadi faktornya.

“ Dahulu kala kita di Sony Music, album ketiga kita tidak diluncurkan. Gelombang melayu lagi masuk. Jadi album ketiga kita kepending nyaris 3 tahun,” ucapnya

Aska naik pitam karena album yang susah- susah mereka buat tidak menyambangi diluncurkan. Tetapi dirinya bersama personel Rocket Rockers yang lain tidak dapat melakukan banyak karena mempunyai kontrak kepada merek music itu.

Mereka wajib taat.

“ Ketahui sendiri kan, jika pergi dari merek pada dikala itu, kita wajib beri uang Rp1 miliyar. Uang dari mana?” melamun ia.

Rocket Rockers darurat keberadaan. Gaungnya tertutup nada Melayu. Karena itu Aska kepikiran untuk menyusul angkat kaki dari Rocket Rockers. Ia kepikiran hempas setir serta mulai bersolo karir melalui pertandingan pencarian kemampuan.

“ Aku hingga merasa ingin turut Indonesian Idol aja. Tetapi cocok hasrat itu ingin masuk, kesimpulannya kita dapat pergi dari Sony Music serta menghasilkan merek sendiri yang namanya Reach& Rich Records, serta alhamdulillah, pergi album Better Season, serta lagu Lenyap Ingatan pergi. Lagu, yang bisa jadi buat orang banyak ketahui siapa Rocket Rockers,” ucap ia.

Cetak biru Era Depan

Asian, Rocket Rockers dapat melampaui tiap kasus dengan lembut. Band yang telah berdiri sepanjang 21 tahun itu membenarkan tidak hendak menyudahi. Apalagi band itu telah mempunyai banyak konsep yang hendak dikejar.

Salah satu cetak biru itu yakni membuat film nada terkini dari lagu- lagu yang telah disiarkan. Esoknya lagu itu hendak ditambahkan bacaan supaya dapat dinikmati sahabat tunarungu. Rocket Rockers mau kartanya dapat dinikmati dengan cara umum.

“ Betul, itu di bulan Maret insyaallah, lagu Lenyap Ingatan itu kita akan gunakan bahasa pertanda. Gampang mudahan banyak sahabat tunarungu pula yang merasa, ini lagunya buat sahabat tunarungu pula,” ucapnya.

Aska membenarkan, perihal ini dicoba tanpa balasan. Ia tidak menghasilkan sahabat tunarungu selaku pasar yang dapat meraup profit untuk bandnya.

“ Sasaran pasar aku enggak, enggak terdapat sasaran pasar apa lah, ataupun di balik ini terdapat promo apa gitu. Enggak terdapat. Ini pure saja buat lebih dapat melebarkan lagi bahasa pertanda,” terangnya.

Mereka pula senantiasa hendak bekerja sama dengan band- band yang lain serta mengcover lagu. Teranyar, band itu terkini saja menelurkan album Cheers From Rocket Rockers( 2017) yang ialah cetak biru kerja sama dengan 17 band.

“ Ini album kumpulan Rocket Rockers, jadi 17 lagu kita dibawakan oleh 17 musisi. Terdapat Fiersa Besari di dalamnya, terdapat Midnight Quickie, Superglad, macam- macam lah,” tuturnya.

Rocket Rockers pula berencana menelurkan album terbarunya pada Agustus 2020. Tetapi Aska tidak ingin membeberkan dengan cara gamblang pertanyaan konsep besar itu.

Sehabis album awal berhasil di pasaran sampai menggapai nilai 10. 000 copy lebih, bulan Agustus 2003 Rocket Rockers habis kontrak dengan Off The Records. Tetapi cinta, Off The Records tidak bisa penuhi kewajibannya pada Rocket Rockers, justru terus menjadi mis- komunikasi.

Gitaris Rocket Rockers, Lowp menaikkan jauh barisan musisi yang menyudahi buat memindahkan. Beliau tidak lagi bersama band yang sudah membesarkan namanya itu per bertepatan pada 22 Mei 2018 kemudian.

Statment Lowp itu pasti membuat para badan Rocket Rockers lain, Aska( bunyi, gitar), Bisma( bass), serta Ozom( drum) kaget. Karena dikala itu, mereka lagi terkumpul pada kegiatan buka puasa bersama.

” Ngobrol serempak serta Lowp melaporkan kalau itu hari terakhirnya di Rocket Rockers.

Lowp telah tercampur bersama Rocket Rockers semenjak 18 tahun lamanya. Mereka telah merasakan asam garam ataupun manis dalam berkecimpung di pabrik nada Tanah Air.

Telah nyaris 2 dasawarsa bersama, para personel tidak cuma selaku kawan satu band saja, melainkan keluarga. Mereka ketahui benar watak serta kepribadian tiap- tiap. Hingga dari itu, member Rocket Rockers lain menyambut dengan luas ketetapan angkat kaki Lowp.

PROFIL Serta Memoar MARJINAL

www.thesirenssound.comBiografi band Marjinal Serta Perjalanannya Untuk Indonesia. Golongan nada ini tadinya bernama Kontra ABRI, berbarengan dengan berubahnya julukan institusi tentara di Indonesia, julukan Kontra ABRI- pun berganti lagi jadi Kontra Military.

Cara berlatih serta membimbing, dengan cara tidak langsung terjalin di komunitas, dengan tenang. Beberapa besar kanak- kanak itu memilah hidup di jalanan, selaku pengamen. Terdapat yang sedang sekolah, banyak pula yang putus sekolah. Mereka mengamen buat menolong ekonomi orangtua. Beberapa besar mereka berlatar balik dari keluarga miskin kota, yang bermukim di kampung- kampung padat masyarakat; Kali Pasir, Mampang, Kota, Matraman, Desa Melayu, Cakung, Cengkareng, Cipinang serta lain serupanya.

Mike Marjinal

Mike Marjinal merupakan seseorang musisi Indonesia. Laki- laki owner julukan komplit Mikail Israfil ini merupakan gitaris band berajaran punk bernama Marjinal. Marjinal merupakan suatu group nada band dari demikian banyak group band indie di Indonesia yang berajaran punk.” Bersama Marjinal” band punk yang diketahui hebat serta mempunyai banyak pengikut, Mike begitu ia diketahui orang banyak, sudah menelorkan karya- karya yang gampang sekali diperoleh warga arus dasar.

Marjinal yang termotivasi oleh Sex Pistols, Bob Marley, Leo Kristi, Toy Dolls, Bad Religion, The Crass, Benyamin S, serta Ramones mengawali dini pekerjaannya pada tahun 1997 kala itu sedang memakai julukan AA( Kontra ABRI) serta AM( Kontra Military) dalam komunitas underground.

Merambah tahun 2001 band punk ini mulai melepaskan julukan AA serta AM, mereka sah memakai julukan terkini ialah Marjinal. Julukan terkini di bisa kala Mike, si vokalis termotivasi oleh julukan pejuang pegawai wanita“ Marsinah.. Marsinah.. Marjinal” asal Surabaya yang amat berani dalam meperjuangkan haknya selaku kalangan pegawai.

Tetapi cinta belum hingga pada waktunya, marsinah meninggal dalam kewajiban bersih yang agung dampak penganiayaan yang dicoba oleh petugas berseragam.

Tidak cuma itu Marsinah juga menginspirasikan Marjinal dalam meriliskan album ke- 3 dengan kepala karangan album” Marsinah” bercoverkan wajah marsinah dengan bentuk gelap putih. Luar lazim, Kepala karangan lagu” Marsinah” yang serupa dengan kepala karangan albumnya, amat sering di dengar sekali sebab banyak golongan anak belia menyanyikan lagu” Marsinah” di tongkrongan, sanggar nada, apalagi dalam suatu pergelaran nada.

Mike lahir di Jakarta 23 Juni 1975 dari kandungan seseorang bunda yang bernama Rumani. Bapaknya seseorang badan Tentara Nasional Indonesia(TNI) Angkatan darat(AD), Angkatan laut(AL) Onli. Laki- laki berbulu gimbal ini, ialah anak ke- empat dari 5 berkeluarga. Dikala ini ia telah dikaruniai 2 orang anak.

jak itu, gue melihat penegak hukum kita bobrok,” ujar Boy.

Bob Marjinal

Marjinal serta Bob merupakan 2 perihal yang nyaris tidak dapat dipisahkan. Sebab Bob merupakan Marjinal, serta Marjinal juga hidup serta bertumbuh bersama Bob. Marjinal, selaku suatu band punk yang populer dengan lagu- lagu peperangan, mempunyai banyak cerita ketika wajib manggung dari luar negara. Serta dari Bob inilah, rasanya catatan ini akan terwujud buat Kamu.

Satu durasi Bob menceritakan mengenai pengalaman Marjinal sewaktu melaksanakan rekreasi di luar negara. Mulai dari narasi mengenai tumbuhan ganja yang tingginya dekat 4 m di Berlin yang dinamai selaku“ bunda”, menceritakan pula mengenai pengalaman Bob bertugas di sanggar tato di Jepang di sela- sela rekreasi musiknya.

Spesial mengenai pengalaman manggung di Jepang pada tahun 2013 dahulu, Bob berterus terang angkat topi dengan tindakan respek warga Jepang terpaut kegiatan merokoknya.“ Di situ pada jam- jam khusus, jam kanak- kanak sekolah seliweran, tidak terdapat mereka( orang berusia) yang nampak merokok di jalanan.” Butuh dikenal pula, di Jepang yang namanya tempat- tempat spesial merokok itu ada lumayan di ruang khalayak; di stasiun, halte, halaman, ataupun pusat- pusat perbelanjaan.“ Tindakan silih menghormati satu serupa lain itu sedang terpelihara bagus,” kata Bob pada aku.

Jika Belum Ketahui Pertanyaan Punk, Janganlah Asal Menghakimi

Berkumpulnya 4 orang anak belia ini dalam satu tim nada, sebab tiap- tiap mempunyai kecocokan dengan yang lain. Mereka yang merasa ditatap sisi mata oleh warga sebab opsi hidup serta pola pikirnya yang berlainan. Julukannya, anak punk.

Bagi Mike, sesungguhnya kelompoknya tidaklah kanak- kanak punk semacam yang dipikirkan orang.

Jadi punk, lebih dari hanya mencari bukti diri diri,

namun pula menyangkal buat dijadikan korban ketidakadilan. Semacam yang sempat dirasakan golongan ini, ditolak dikala awal kali berpangkalan di Setu Babakan, yang diketahui selaku awasan pelanggengan adat Betawi.

Selaku tahap dini, Mike serta kawan- kawan membuat golongan riset serta ikut serta dalam golongan aksi. Bermacam novel yang isinya

mengkritisi kebijaksanaan penguasa semacam Di Dasar Bendera Revolusi buatan Soekarno, Madilog buatan Tan Malaka, sampai Tetralogi Kejar buatan Pramoedya Ananta Toer dilahap oleh mereka. Lantunan Sepi Seseorang Gagu dari Pramoedya, jadi novel kesukaan.

Tetapi, membaca novel, serta ikut serta dalam dialog dan aksi, nyatanya dikira tidak bawa hasil yang penting. Mereka juga mencari perlengkapan buat mengantarkan data serta buah pikiran cemerlang mereka. Tujuan kuncinya merupakan, supaya warga turut terbangun hatinya serta ikut serta dalam peperangan melawan ketidakdilan penguasa.

Kesimpulannya, metode yang diseleksi buat mengantarkan catatan merupakan lewat nada. Untuk Marjinal, nada merupakan napas kehidupan. Dengan nada orang dapat terbangun, orang dapat tertidur, apalagi dapat terkecoh ataupun tidak berakal, terkait nada yang mau dinikmatinya.

Selain itu, nada pula dipercayai selaku perlengkapan buat berlatih serta merekam seluruh peristiwa jelas yang terjalin dalam asal usul bangsa, semacam kecemasan warga dampak kebijaksanaan penguasa yang sering memunculkan beban untuk warga kala itu.

Saat sebelum jadi Marjinal, julukan grupnya merupakan Kontra ABRI, yang setelah itu berganti lagi jadi Kontra Militerisme.

Sebab pada dikala band tercipta tahun 1997, bumi politik di tanah air dikira didominasi oleh golongan tantara.

Julukan Kontra ABRI

sesungguhnya pula plesetan dari

film bertajuk Pahlawan Bergitar yang diperankan oleh Rhoma Aksen. Kepanjangannya,

Kontra Anak Buah Rhoma Aksen. Mereka berterus terang tidak suka dengan aksi anak buah Rhoma yang berperan semacam angkatan serta bereperang melawan anak punk. Berganti lagi jadi Kontra Militerisme, sebab mereka mau hidup warga tidak lagi penuh dengan kekerasan, semacam yang lazim dicoba oleh tantara.

Terus menjadi siang, suasana rumah Gading Babi terus menjadi marak. Sebagian sahabat Mike serta orang sebelah di RT 11 RW 8 berdatangan. Laki- laki kelahiran tahun 1975 ini lalu menyudahi sedangkan berdialog buat menyongsong kehadiran mereka. Sehabis mempersilahkan para pengunjung masuk ke dalam rumah, Mike kembali meneruskan pembicaraannya. Kali ini, pembicaraan kita kira- kira lebih ke poin yang sungguh- sungguh. Kita mulai mangulas buatan Marjinal yang telah sedemikian itu populer serta menempel di golongan para penggerak serta golongan aksi.

Lagu‘ Darah Juang’, jadi buatan yang tidak hendak sempat dapat dibiarkan Mike. Lagu ini, baginya, mempunyai daya serta sanggup berikan antusias pada golongan aksi buat melawan kebijaksanaan penguasa. Selaku anak kolong( gelar buat anak angkatan) yang diberi akses yang sedemikian itu besar pada era Sistem Terkini, Mike serta kawan- kawannya tidak gentar.

Sementara itu, lagu- lagu semacam ini dapat saja jadi bahaya untuk penguasa, serta para inventor ataupun penyanyinya dapat dibekuk. Lagu Darah Juang ini bagi Mike dilatari oleh kebijaksanaan penguasa yang amat melalaikan situasi bangsa dikala itu.

Ikut serta langsung dalam tiap kasus yang dirasakan warga membuat mereka sering mudah merasakan perihal yang serupa buat diperjuangkan. Seluruh kecemasan itu mereka tuangkan dalam lagu yang setelah itu jadi perlengkapan mereka buat berbicara melawan kebijaksanaan penguasa.

Bermacam rumor yang terdapat di tanah air jadi atensi mereka. Mulai dari politik, rumor perburuhan, rumor area, sampai rumor penggelapan. Mereka sering tampak dengan style punk- nya di ebrbagai kelakuan aksi buat membakar isu- isu yang tengah hangat diperbincangkan ataupun yang diperjuangkan oleh warga.

Buat rumor penggelapan, mereka sudah membuat kumpulan album buat menggerakan kanak- kanak belia serta warga Indonesia buat bereperang melawan penggelapan yang tengah gempar di Indonesia. Rumor perburuhan pula jadi fokus mereka. Apalagi julukan Marjinal yang mengambil alih julukan Kontra militerisme pada tahun 2002 termotivasi dari cerita pegawai serta pejuang pegawai asal Jawa Timur, Marsinah.

“ Awal- awalnya kita memanglah mengarah memwakili diri kita saja, tetapi dari sana setelah itu kita berproses

buat memahami perkara, karakter warga, pandangan warga. Setelah itu bagaiaman kita dapat menuntaskan perkara itu, yang awal mulanya cuma memajukan kepribadian abdi yang memwakili kebutuhan sendiri,” tuturnya.

Kerap Diundang Mahasiswa dari Beberapa Kampus di Indonesia

Di golongan peminat lagu pop Indonesia, julukan Marjinal bisa jadi karam dari bintang- bintang gerakan nada itu.

Mereka tidak sempat tampak di pentas sah buat mengadakan konser besar seperti tim Band Ungu, Noah, Peterpan, ataupun juga semacam Iwan Fals.

Mereka memanglah tidak mencari pentas semacam band- band konvensional. Tim Band yang saat ini bermukim diisi oleh Bob serta Mike, selaku personel lama, ditambah dengan sebagian orang terkini ini, lebih diketahui di golongan para penggerak serta golongan aksi. Lagu- lagu mereka sering dinyanyikan para penggerak buat membakar antusias buat bertindak.

Sebab diketahui di golongan penggerak, Marjinal sering diundang oleh mahasiswa kala mengadakan kegiatan di kampus mereka. Lagu- lagu Marjinal yang berjudul peperangan, nyaris seluruhnya dikenal oleh mahasiswa yang sering turun dalam kelakuan serta aksi di kampusnya.

Sampai saat ini mereka telah menghasilkan belasan lagu peperangan serta sedang lalu jadi golongan music kesukaan para golongan penggerak serta aksi di tanah air.

Sedang Lalu Berkreasi buat Kritisi kebijaksanaan Penguasa serta Pola Kehidupan Masyarakat

Umur band Marjinal telah lumayan berumur. Bila dihitung dari semenjak berdirinya tahun 1997, saat ini tim band ini telah berumur dekat 22 tahun. Lebih berumur beebrapa tahun dari umur pembaruan Indonesia yang merupakan buah peperangan dari Marjinal serta kawan- kawan aksi dikala itu.

Walaupun telah tidak gampang serta sebagian personelnya sering bertukar- tukar, tidak membuat Marjinal menyudahi berkreasi. Mereka lalu menjajaki rumor yang bertumbuh di tanah air, dengan menuangkannya dalam wujud buatan nada.

Semacam dikala ini, Marjinal tengah menggarap lagu yang isinya mengkritisi suasana politik serta tindakan warga Indonesia yang jadi budak politik. Pemakaian Agama dalam politik jadi sasaran kritik mereka yang penting dalam lagu ini. Bagi mereka, politik merupakan perihal terburuk yang terdapat di wajah alam dikala ini.

Impian Marjinal pada Warga serta Pemerintah

Jadi seseorang punk ataupun jadi bagian dari golongan punk bukanlah gampang. Stigma minus sampai antipati senantiasa memberi warna ekspedisi hidup mereka. Tetapi, dibalik merek itu, Mike berambisi warga mengubah pemikiran mengenai golongan punk.

Baginya, golongan punk merupakan golongan yang istimewa dengan pikirannya yang leluasa serta inovatif. Bila warga lalu memperhitungkan punk selaku golongan yang tidak mempunyai era depan, hingga yang cedera merupakan warga itu sendiri.

“ Cedera aja jika sedang terdapat yang angka minus. Jika sedang terdapat perihal positif dapat kita perbuat, mengapa harus mengutip yang minus. Ini yang butuh diketahui oleh warga, sebab minus itu tidak hendak sempat bawa apa- apa tidak hanya merupakan kemerosotan serta kebangkrutan. Jika memanglah belum ketahui pertanyaan punk, janganlah asal memeriksa, tetapi inilah waktunya buat mencari ketahui untuk menaikkan ilmu,’ tegasnya.

Sebaliknya kepada penguasa, Marjinal berambisi supaya penguasa sanggup menghasilkan angkatan yang lebih inovatif serta bermental mandiri. Angkatan yang terdapat dikala ini wajib dapat membongkar perkaranya sendiri, tanpa wajib menjiplak serta menjiplak adat luar yang mengarah mudarat angkatan. Mike memandang angkatan yang terdapat dikala ini tidak diberdayakan oleh penguasa serta apalagi mengarah diabaikan.

Mike memperhitungkan penguasa sudah membuat angkatan dikala ini tertidur serta tidak ingin berasumsi lebih jauh. Adat‘ cuma menyambut’ jadi sedemikian itu pekat membuat angkatan dikala ini lebih mau mencapai suatu dengan metode praktis.

Japandroids – Saved On The Verge of Breaking Up
Blog Review

Japandroids – Saved On The Verge of Breaking Up

Japandroids – Saved On The Verge of Breaking Up – Founded in 2006, Japandroids is one of the young indie bands one can found out there. Interestingly, this band scored a record deal despite on the verge of discontinuing in 2008. Since then, it has numerous tours starting from the record deal in 2009 to the present day.
• About The Band
Japandroids is founded by Brian King and David Prowse, two schoolmates of the University of Columbia, in 2006. They actually first met in the university back in 2000. After discovering a mutual interest in music, the two decided to form a band.

Both members are pitching in as vocals, but King handles the guitar while Prowse handles the drums. The style of their song, most fans would describe, is a combination of half-rock and half-punk. This style is soon welcomed by many for being fun and full of taste. Their songs make great hits, just as how online gambling business makes big hits among players.

The name Japandroids itself was a combination of band name ideas from both members. Prowse suggested Japanese Scream, while King suggested Pleasure Droids. Cannot settle with one, Prowse and King just combined those two ideas into one. Sometimes, they also spelled the band name without vowels as JPNDRDS.

• Breaking Up

Making the band takes a lot of effort. First of all, Prowse had to move to Vancouver and transfer to Simon Fraser University in 2003. Since they are still eager to form a band, King followed Prowse to Vancouver after his graduation in 2005.

However, since the city lacked the opportunity to conduct live music shows nor to join the local music scene, Japandroids had to set up independent concerts regularly. They started these shows from 2006 and continued to do them as regular as possible.

However, since the show schedule clashes a lot with King’s geology studies and the lack of prospects, they decided to dissolve the band by the end of 2008.

• The Record Deal That Changed It All
A few days into 2009, they were offered a contract by Unfamiliar Records, a Canadian label. It was unforeseen that they accepted the offer, but they reluctantly did and continued their live shows. However, after Pitchfork awarded their song “Young Hearts Spark Fire” as the ‘Best New Track’. They released the album Post-Nothing and took off from there.

Indeed, Japandroids is not your regular band. It was founded by two people, who stayed faithfully without any new addition. It almost broke up after two years of career, too. Not even the members can imagine that they will take off, goes to 500 shows worldwide, and able to compete with new and old indie bands alike.

Radiohead – The Questionable Indie
Blog Review

Radiohead – The Questionable Indie

Radiohead is one of the old players in the music industry. Since its founding in 1985, the band had been popular for its non-generic song structures (which is the shining characteristic of indie labels) despite being a major record. So, is Radiohead indie or not?
• The Band
This rock (or, if one prefers, indie rock) was founded in Abingdon, Oxfordshire, England back in 1985. There are five loyal members of the group, which are Philip Selway (drums and percussion), Colin Greenwood (bass), Ed O’Brien (backing vocals and guitars), Jonny Greenwood (lead guitar, keyboards, and other instruments), and Thom Yorke (vocals, piano, keyboards, guitar). Until the present time, this band is still active and often considered one of the biggest rock bands internationally.

• The Style
What makes Radiohead stay relevant is its ability to adapt to the current popular genres without losing their personal touches. At first, the band was mostly influenced by 80s alternative rock bands such as R.E.M and U2, post-punk acts such as Joy Division, and legends such as Queen and Elvis. However, they started to play with Electronic music in the 90s (inspired by DJ Shadow) and jazz from Charles Mingus and such. Since then, their music evolves towards Electronic, hip hop, and experimental genres.

• The Albums
As we mentioned before, Radiohead continued to evolve throughout the years. So, each album marks a new change with new inspirations. This band itself had produced nine albums, such as Pablo Honey in 1993, The Bends in 1995, OK Computer in 1997, Kid A in 2000, Amnesiac in 2001, Hail to the Thief in 2003, In Rainbows in 2007, The King of Limbs in 2011, A Moon Shaped Pool in 2016. This list doesn’t include their other works such as singles which are not included in the albums.

• So, Is It Indie?
After six years of career, Radiohead signed a contract with EMI in 1991. Since then, they debuted with the single Creep (1992) which then followed by their first album Pablo Honey (1993). With that album, their popularity rose up with EMI until they decided not to prolong their contract in 2004. So, since then, they are technically an indie label.

Indie labels gave artists more freedom to create music with creative endeavors. So, speaking from that sense, it’s not questionable for Radiohead to be considered as Indie by listeners since the very start. However, this band is only technically garnered the label in 2004, right after Hail to the Thief.

Raw Honey – A Taste of the 70s in 2019 by Drugdealer
Blog Review

Raw Honey – A Taste of the 70s in 2019 by Drugdealer

For something that is released in 2019, Raw Honey had the impression of an album that is commonly found after crate-digging in the 70s. True, just seeing the cover, anyone could see the 60s to 70s vibe already. However, what does Raw Honey actually represent, really?
• Is Drugdealer a Band?

Just as how online gambling games immediately becomes a hit, Drugdealer becomes a huge band almost in an instant. Some groups got one music writer but perform as a band. Others made the music and perform together. However, Drugdealer doesn’t exactly fall on those categories, though we can say it leans more to the first one.

One can say that Drugdealer is more of a band than a solo, yet “more of a collective than a band.” Despite this complicated explanation, Drugdealer releases great hits and that soon become huge trend.

Drugdealer itself is a partnership for Sasha Winn (vocals), Michael Collins, and Shags Chamberlain (production, bass). However, it is a fact that Collins writes and composes most of Drugdealer’s songs by himself.

However, as the song is produced thanks to the efforts of collective artists, we can’t really call Drugdealer a solo nor band work. The term ‘musical group’ may be more fitting, though it is not exactly accurate.

• About Raw Honey
Besides the three partners of Drugdealer, the album Raw Honey includes more collaboration with many other artists. Playing the instrumentals are Jackson MacIntosh (guitar), Josh Da Costa (drums), Michael Long (lead guitar), Danny Garcia (guitar), and Benjamin Schwab (backing vocals, wurlitzer, organ, guitar, piano). Besides that, there are also guest vocalists such as the Dougie Poole, the country balladeer, Harley Hill-Richmond, and Natalie Mering (Weyes Blood), who frequently collaborate. These guest vocals contribute to specific songs. For one, Poole sings in Wild Motion, Hill-Richmond in Lonely, and Blood in Honey among other songs.

In the style of what’s in in the 60s, Collins wrote up existential questions laced in beautiful arrangements. Among the lyrics, one can find “What’s the point of creating?” as the main inspiration of the album. In attempt to answer this question, Collins seeks the way by going back to the memories of the 60s. In songs such as Lost in My Dream and Fools, we can see that he embraces the previous generation’s coke-cutting soundtrack while delivering an antithesis of that acceptance in Fools.

Just seeing that golden cover, people would be sent to a nostalgic trip to the billboards back in the 70s. However, Collins begs the listener not to get stuck in the memory. He garnered this idea in Fools, “It’s not the same song you remember. You can try but it’s just plain wrong.”

The Ringards: London’s Very Own Emerging Indie Band

In order to be the best, it is better to learn from the best. This principle is embraced by all the members who diligently joined many gigs in France. They had been the supports for popular French band. After receiving the much needed support for their music, the band decided to go back to the homeland and started their own career.

The Music Style
This is a brand new brand, formed back in the end of 2017. The members of this band is Enzo, Freddie, Gary and Koby. The vocalist of the group is Enzo, who also play the guitar. Freddie is another guy who play the guitar, Gary plays the bass and Koby plays the drum. These four people are getting popular after performing in various stages in French.

While listening to their music style, many would agree that the characteristic the band wants to build is rooted to electric guitar sound. In all the songs they have presented until today, each one starts with intense guitar melody, somehow screeching deep enough to send shiver through the listener’s spine. Enzo’s deep voice, the faint bass and slow tempo of the drum somehow could make the melody works well.

The Latest Single
On December 28th, The Ringards dropped their single “Steppenwolf”. It is the name of a cartoon character that will appear on the doom day. Matching to the concept of the title, the song itself gives gothic feels. The bass has stronger touch to highlight the concept while complementing the deep vocal. Th duration is less than three minutes, but the listener would be brought to a different experience of indie band music.

The strength of indie music is the unpredictable pattern of the music and lyrics. It could go to any direction, as long as the band stay within the genre boundary. This is what The Ringards tries to aim in every album. Be ready to be their fan!

The Aces: Girls Who Conquer The Indie Band

What comes to your mind when you hear the word “girl band”? Probably a bunch of slim ladies who could dance and sing well? This definition doesn’t apply for the muses from The Aces. They are fun, eccentric girls who bring the refreshing breeze to pop music. No dancing involved, only a great stage presence and excellent crowd controlling.

Best Friends Turns Into A Band
It should have taken a lot of effort to build a solid band that will last for years. For The Aces, two of the main members, Cristal and Alisa were interested in music making as a third grader. They are siblings who love to sing and have high interest in guitar and drum. As a child, they often sneaked into the big brother room to borrow guitar or to the neighbor’s garage to beat the drum.

One Christmas night, both of them ask their school mate, McKenna Petty to play the bass to balance their melody. It was fun as Petty had no idea how to play the bass. Three little ladies figured things out by themselves. From that day on, they built good reputation in their hometown, a small town in Utah.

Lorde’s Effect
Things went even better after they met Katie who add funky guitar tempo. Unlike three others, Katie got some skills in music. The band wouldn’t be exist if Lorde didn’t win the Grammy Awards. These four ladies are in dilemma; should The Aces disband or continue professionally? After seeing that an 18 years old could live the dream, they decided they also do. They contact Lorde’s manager and sign contract with Red Bull Records.

While the survival and talent seekers TV shows are busy to pair up different people under one roof, there are still some groups who build the bound from the bottoms. Say it out loud: The Aces are not puppet who get together for one year and get to make music. They, without degrading the value of their friendship, make music of their own.
