Levi's 501 Live Unbuttoned Launch Party

Remember the toilet song I was talking a few posts ago?
well that shit has came a long way since we sent it down the pipes

*pic stolen from blogger Lei Yun

I worked on the song with Greg Henderson for a couple of nights to refine the song (rushing back from Penang and jumping straight into the studio at one point). Jun Han and Wee Hin helped me out in figuring out a catchy bridge chord progression and did a wonderful job on the instrumentals for the song and everything fell into place pretty well.

Writing the song was relatively easy compared to songs for the band partly because I received guidance and encouragement from Greg, Iris when I was developing my ideas.


I also received the tear drawing, pee jerking, and steam fulfilling support from my friends and family. Especially those who were there with me that nite and Iris who drove me there for sound check. Kenrick, Iris and Rama was also generous enough to sms-vote repeatedly for me! also Thanx to those who smsed for me from outside the event, you know who you are!

.
Ma hoes , Jessie and Sharon, for standing there all night to support me in their ankle twisting heels and screaming their throats and some guts out to cheer me on!


and ma bros!


Freestyle conteng (perfect for the malaysian crowd)


Large markers, paint brushes, paint, spray cans, stickers, light sabres, plasma guns and Hennesy was provided to anyone who wanted to have a go at the board.


Iris and Ramax got their act caught on VIDEO!!! I only got a pic..


Did you know that Wee Hin smokes?


Well NOW YOU DO!!


Joe smokes too!!


Everyone smokes!!!



My deadly rivals in the form of innocent little girls!!!! *and a hunky dude who's not in the pic


Dennis the media guy/porn director/tarantula master/casanova was THE camera man for the night.


He was generous enough to share his joy with me.


Busy busy busy all nite looking for upskirt-on-stage opportunities


One thing I loved about the performance aside from the great band was the FANTASTIC and almost MAGICAL monitors(the speakers on the floor facing me). This is the first time I ever heard myself so clearly on stage cz I could barely hear myself during other gigs.


Mine wasn't suppose to be the first performance but they threw me first for some reason. Again, a pee jerking experience.

Joey G as Emcee

Prema as a sessionist singing Faith's version of "Unbuttoned". Great control over her voice.


Ezra doing her own full of soul.


Mooky from One Buck Short doing Ryo's rendition.


The competition was as stiff as a dildo carved out of teak wood and it's a miracle that I didn't get screwed by that.

Levi's 501

I have finally received my first corporate sponsorship in the form of garments. Feels good to know that our toilet song gave them enough reason to let me choose and take home a pair of jeans and T-shirt from their outlet in the Gardens.





Big thanx to those who contributed to the success of this side project (namely Wee hin n Jun Han for the amazing instrumentals, Iris for helping me decide the vocal melody and everyone else who gave us their feedback on the song.

Thank you Levi's for the goods, hopefully we will win stuff at the finals!

Survivor!

I found this cricket in the cricket box (tarantula/scorpion feed). Some other cricket chewed off it's abdomen till there was almost nothing left but it was still able to walk around if placed the right side up.


when u flip it over it can't turn itself over but it's still alive.


Really impressive stuff!

Aural Joint - Meet the Band gig

Last weekend was a hectic one. 2 gigs 2 days in a row with the Levi's event, exchange student arrival and shopping trip snugged in between. I think it all went pretty well thanx to the support from Iris, all the great friends who came to support us and the band that made it all happen!

Kopi Milkshake at One Cafe. 2nd time around.



Meet the Band at Gold Hill Club, Kepong. There were superb chinese bands playing there and even a Jack Black (chinese version). I was impressed. The sound system was great too.





Jun Han popped his rocker cherry by slashing his finger with the guitar strings and bleeding all over his guitar half way through our set!!! click to enlarge the pic to see the splatter!!

*fortunately he received a plaster and fixed it so we could play on*
