Some updates and hopefully more good things to come…

Hello good people,

Thanks for all your best wishes… I’m deeply moved to know that you guys have provided a little space for DEP deep within your hearts. We’re not worthy. Maybe I don’t know some of you personally, but still, it shows that we have the same feelings. Feelings of loss, maybe… but not TOTAL loss! Rest assured…

Okay, moving forward. I’m calling for all labels, distros or individuals to contact me should you are interested in selling DEP’s CD. I also have some t-shirts left (less than 10 pieces maybe) with limited colours and sizes. So gmail me or leave your contact details at the shoutbox.

I’m also calling for individuals who are interested in producing music. I’m currently looking for a bassist. But if you play other instruments and interested to collaborate, I’m always open for discussion. If you can do vocals, that will be cool!
I’m really looking forward for this. Cheers!

p/s: Even if the band is no longer together, does not mean that the spirit should end there too. So for the love, friendship and spirit (of doing things that you love), This One's Forever!!!

Untuk Makluman Semua...

Hello geng!

OK, aku mula-mula bercadang nak umumkan dekat-dekat nak gig tu nanti.. tapi memikirkan yang korang akan balas balik - "Kenapa tak cakap awal-awal, boleh aku simpan duit sikit..." SO aku bagitau sekarang so korang akan lebih bersedia tanpa sebarang lame excuse, OK?

Untuk makluman korang semua CD (this one's foreva) dan t-shirt akan dijual dengan harga yang SANGAT murah... tak percaya? lu punya pasal... jangan cakap aku tak bagitau... so kepada yang nak membeli sebelum ni tapi selalu tak cukup duit, inilah masanya.. ok, you have been reminded. Dan harga murah ni untuk hari tu sahaja...

Oh ye, aku jugak akan bagi free DEP CD/merchandise kepada sesiapa yang berpakaian SANGAT menjolok mata pada gig ari tu... hehe... See you there!

Jangan Marah Jika Terjumpa Pakcik Hussain Ketika Hujan…

Yanti wrote this in the shoutbox…

h bro, can you comment abt those band out there suc as MUH or hujan...i think they really suck..full of crap..didn't u tire looking of these jerk ba
I belive originally they are indie bands..like yr band, unfortunely now days the word of indie no longer at ther band
i hate them so much..!!!


(I’m leaving the comment as it is cuz amendments might divert it from it’s actual meaning.)

To tell you the truth Yanti, I have nothing to say about these 2 bands. Whatever genre that they claimed to champion is just none of my business. Indie, ballad, rock or pop? Let them shove it up their asses.

From your comment, I can understand your frustration. But seriously, there’s nothing much we can do about it. This is something which is beyond our control. We can’t tell people something like, “Don’t call yourself a rocker… you’re not that ROCK!!" Numsayin'?

I assume you’re young. So the raging hormones just make you want to spit on these people’s faces who, more or less, being untrue to the thing that you believe in. Does the word POSER ring a bell? I hope so. Still, people have every right to be whatever they want to be… and if they choose to be POSERS for the rest of their lives.. then let them be.

Yanti, no matter how hard you try to curb this ‘indie’ culture from embracing the mass, it will make its way to the mass with the help of fertile development of technology. Even if you’re in Timbuktu and as long as you have an internet connection, you will know how MUH or Hujan sounds like.

It’s a mainstream life cycle. Whatever that is categorised as ‘trendy’ stays and will enjoy the limelight, for some time. If anyone gets lucky enough, they’ll be evergreen like POP YEH YEH. Once the people had enough, they’ll ditch it and look for the latest fad. Remember this word… TRENDY…

Still, there is something that you can do. You can boycott the bands that you hate by not buying their stuff and not going to their shows. That’s a passive way of doing things but if you think that you need to do things aggressively, a haters club (as opposed to fan club, is there any other name for this?) or making trouble at shows will be some good options to think about. Wearing t-shirts sporting hate remarks on the bands can also convey a very clear message. Hehehe..

‘Indie’ is such a dirty word nowadays. I myself feel so yucky to associate my band with the ‘I’ word. I’m sticking to ‘manic depressive’ now so I hope I’ll be the first (in Malaysia) to put this as a band statement. Manic – cuz the songs were fused with so many music genre and Depressive – well read the words and you’ll know what I’m talking about. Anyway, I’ll change it again once it becomes trendy. So watch this space… Haha!

As I always believe in going against the hype, I’m considering putting my band back to that Punk 77 kinda sound. Or back to hardcore punk/skatepunk era… Where the whole attitude is just like, “I don’t give a fuck, I’ll smash your windscreen or grind your doorsteps with my skateboard, you cunt!”… Yeah, I should do that. I don’t know. I’m writing nonsense already.

Well, I guess that’s it. Just fuck it! That’s the best way to deal with this. Fuck it!

All the best Yanti!!!

p/s: But I’m really considering a skatepunk band… ;)

Mandrem Part 1... (Sila abaikan kalau ejaan salah)




Imej dicilok dari blog Ateng.

Semakin hangat diperkatakan yang mereka akan ke Malaysia tidak lama lagi untuk tour yang julung-julung kalinya.

Pekara yang mesti dilakukan sebelum ketibaan mereka:

1) Menghafal semua lagu dari 9 album mereka (rase macam lebih).. kalau boleh, hafal mandrem sekali...

2) Mencari semula baggy pants, atau baggy shorts... (harap-harap masih belum jadi kain lap kaki di pintu bilik air).

3) Cari baseball cap kat Sungei Wang yang ade embroidery 'NY'. (Pastikan yang tak begitu tinggi, nanti macam hip hop pulak...)

4) Cari kasut vans old skool low cut...

5) Pegi kedai Burma kat Petaling Street, cari rantai manik yang besar dan ngam-ngam dengan ukur lilit tengkuk.

6) Praktis jumpkick, setiap hari sebanyak 20 kali. Ketinggian lompatan mestilah melebihi satu meter (mimimum).

7) Vege diet dan tinggalkan lifestyle yang kurang sihat (merokok, minum dan sebagainya).

Siapa panggil gua POSER ari gig tu nanti, gua jumpkick dia 3 kali.

Ada berani???
