HAMPEH! - IS THE WORD...

About a week ago I received this text message from my wife.

"*arim cakap DEP masuk dalam *ampur *hart, f*y.fm..."

I replied, "Biar betol? Macamane pulak?"

She replied, "Tu la, siap ade interview lagi..."

What the fuck?...

***************************************************************************
OK. There's nothing wrong about getting into a chart for radio, TV or whatever. But the problem is... DEP had never in anyway make contact with radio/TV/whatever, hoping for some promotions for the band of some sort. Let alone getting into any charts. So, it's kinda shocking to receive such info that the band appeared on some national radio. How? Don't ask me.

Another text message ensues, "*arim kate ade repeat tomorrow night." Sent by my wife.

"Okay let's check it out". I only replied her verbally, cuz I got no more credit. Cheapskate? Yeah.

*******************************************************************************

On that very day, late afternoon. I sent text messages to Panther and Tojeng.

"Pukul 12 malam ni dengar f*y.fm, ade DEP. Aku pon tak tau macamane boleh terlepas, dengar je la."

They replied...
1) "Alamak. Ni dah langgar pantang ni...."
2) " Wei... kene sue ni..."


Hmm. I don't know what's the rationale from these two remarks...
Are we too "punk" to be in the chart? Will we be nailed to the cross should we even have the tiniest intention to be in one???

Hmmm....
***********************************************************************
At 12 midnight, my wife and I listen to the show and waiting in anticipation. How, what, who... all those questions were playing in my mind... and suddenly the DJ announced...

"OK, so we're gonna have a guest in the studio, *ames Baum (or sumthing) and he's going to talk about the latest release which is "THE EP"...

Chehhhhhhh! It's The EP and NOT DEP. Wasted!!!

WASTED!!!!!!!

***********************************************************************
Moral of the story:-

1) Check out the source of info received before conveying such info to others.

2) If you already know that your band is not "radio-friendly" then just forget about it!!!


p/s: Tojeng text me, " Ni bukan DEP la boh" ...
i replied, " Jangan kabo mu, aku pon kene getoh ni..."

"Langgar pantang"? Who gave birth? Hehe.

But seriously, if there was a way to get some airplay, by all means, go for it, guys.

Nobody's punk enough these days. Or maybe everyone's too punk? Whatever.

"No hope, no harm... just another false alarm..."

I'm quoting Moz here... ;)

Maybe we're just too dull to be on a radio eh?
