STAGEFRIGHT @ ARTISTRY #2


Simply put, the 2nd edition of STAGEFRIGHT @ Artistry went down very well. I am again very thankful to Marcel and Prashant for making Artistry available to showcase music made in Singapore. Very pleased with the packed crowd of family, friends and fans who came down to enjoy the music. And that’s what it’s all about, isn’t it?


A ‘well-done’ goes out to Lister, By Any Means, Raufi Heights, Marcel Pereira and Lost Weekend for touching us all with their music. Aspiring bands/artists who want to showcase their music at the next STAGEFRIGHT, please send your demos, videos and online links to kamcomusic@gmail.com. I will be waiting…

Here’s a urgent newsflash from the good people over at Ujikaji Records.
We’re taking 1-week-only pre-orders at a special price for this collection of 26 Nusantara gems released on the US label Sublime Frequencies. Comes in “tri-fold digipak with gorgeous artwork, two 40 page booklets with insanely extensive liner notes including band/artist bios, an overview of the era, translated lyrics, and plenty of rare photos taken from vintage magazines, album covers, and the artists’ own personal collections.”
Email ujikajirecords@gmail.com by 28 Feb 2013 if you want this CD as we are highly unlikely going to bring in many extra copies.

BACK TO THE EGG

STAGEFRIGHT @ Artistry Feb 20th

This blog has been quiet for the longest time as I wanted to consolidate all my music posts under my main website Power of Pop. However, I think there may be value in keeping this S-ROCK blog alive to help the scene along even as more and more bands form, more music is released and more events are organized. So consider the S-ROCK blog to be a proper resource for Singapore rock music from now on. If I can keep up that is! 

...still there's more...
