BUNKFACE

First of all, thousand of apologies to Bunkface for the delay. :)

I wanted to catch them live @ SMKUSJ4's IU Day, But it was cancel-ed. So luckily, I got to watch them live @ Rock On Rave.

It was awesome. It was very dancy-ish tune but still keeping up the rock and roll melody and music. I give them 10/10 for that!

I wanted to meet them at Rock on Rave but didnt have the time .

Bunkface consists of; Sam
Youk
Paan
Biak

Their first EP is out NOW. So what are you guys waiting for?

More about Bunkface;
BUNKFACE! First and foremost, we would like to give a shout out to all the fans that has been supporting us since day one. Thank you for dropping by. We are BUNKFACE, and here is our story. For your information, all the members in our band are from Klang, Selangor. The first one being Sam(Vocalist and 2nd guitar), then there's Youk( bassist and vocals), Paan( Lead guitar and vocals), and Biak( drums). We formed this band in 2005. We all decided to form a band. From there, we made our first move by entering a show on TV called BLAST OFF!. We didn't win but we gained much experience from it. After that, Bunkface decided to take things to the next level and so, that's where we started to try to make our own songs, and so we did. We had our ups and downs, some songs didn't really came out right as we all expected them to be. With determination and motivation from all the member of Bunkface, we didn't give up but kept on trying. Finally, in December 2007, we released our first EP called ''LESSON OF THE SEASON''. It includes 6 tracks (english) with a taste of pop punk/ alternative/ rock. This first success of ours was a huge relieve.Little by little, we got some offers to do shows and gigs. You can get our EP by coming to our shows. We're selling them for RM1O each. You can see our upcoming shows on our page. So, come and join us and we'll give you a hell of a time. That's BUNKFACE for now. Lastly, let's all support Malaysia's Music Industry.

Malaysian Dreamgirl .

To the girls that have been watching the series of MDG, I would like to say you guys ROCK ! well, because you guys support the Malaysian Version of America's Next Top Model. well sort of.

but. There's a lot of drama going on between Cindy's Supporters and Hanis's supporters. I dont want to be at anybody's side. But well I voted for Hanis . :)

The thing is, This is a bloody competition. And it is 100% based on VOTES. So why argue ? Yes, Cindy has the most votes and she won so what. Her dad has the money. So just leave it.

Hanis is beautiful gorgeous and she also has a lot of supporters cause I've been blog-hopping and everyone blogs bout hanis. But it is just not her time yet to win I guess. But that's not a problem. One door closes, the other two will open. Plus, she is so young and I believe that she can be the next TopModel in Malaysia.

Competition is not always about winning, it's always about what you get or learned during the competition. We will see who will make it to the top. Cindy or Hanis.

Cindy is so lucky cause her dad is willing to spend that much. gosh. To you, maybe it is unfair but it is based on votes. So we cant say much aye ? Just got to accept it.

and....yes this is just like what happened to Mawi. Mawi's syndrome has spread to MDG. but Mawi got the votes from the fans, CIndy got her votes from the family the most.

Beautiful girls they are.

Congratulations Cindy.

Congratulations to you too Hanis, And try google your name. Most of the blog has your name in it.

Stop with all the drama just shut up and time will tell. Maybe the title Malaysian Dreamgirl is not that big anyway. Who knows maybe Hanis will be much more successful than Cindy ?

One Fact.

Malaysian bands should really sing in BOTH English and Bahasa Melayu.

fact is because if you sing in Bahasa Melayu you'll get more fans and more people singing your song. But if you want to go far, you better sing in English. I had this situation where my friend was singing to One Buck Short's khayalan masa. She said that song is nice and that was the first time she ever heard of OBS. and I was shocked cause OBS has been playing around Malaysia for quite sometime. So yeah, sing more Malay songs ! and yes, not to forget English songs too please !

Otak Fikiran Melayu/Malaysians ?

Few days before I went to Muar, I had one of the best chatting experience with one of my friend. He made me realised something that is happening in Malaysia that MOST of us know but REFUSED to change about it due to their very cool social life. HAH!

Melayu mudah lupa..that was what our very own Tun Dr Mahathir said.

Yang banyak buang bayi, kawin lari, isap dadah, perogol, merompak semuanya MELAYU. and yet we do nothing about it. In school, the parents will always say " cina memang pandai, selalu dapat nombor satu" can we change the word cina? I mean yes melayu is bumiputera and all. but why cant melayu cina india be clever and smart equally. Without pointing the fingers that which race is smarter or stupid-er. In statistics, yes Chinese are smart. but the other races should take note on this and work harder to be on top. This is what we called persaingan sihat. But no, most of us would just sit down and relax and wont compete. Itulah takdir oleh Tuhan katanya. But I do believe that God will want us to compete in life to a better tomorrow :)

When I started going to gigs, my Mom always give me advices like " dont do drugs, dont drink , remember who you are and please dont get involve with black metal and all that shit " The reason is because she doesnt know what is Gig. I bet most of the golden age people is clueless as well. But hey who am I to blame ? We do read in newspapers that a lot of stuff is happening, so parents have to be extra careful with their children. but I always wonder why my mom said that. Is not like I went for gigs and do bad stuff. But the first impression is already clear. You play rock and roll. Rock and Roll always involve with drugs and alcohol. So yeah I dont blame the parents for not letting you kids to gigs. But I am satisfied that until today, My mom still do believe in me and that she thinks that gig is the way to enjoy youngsters music! Way to go mommah !

And not only that you see. We youngsters, the anak muda harapan bangsa dan negara also always forget. Terlalu bangga dan riak dgn apa yang ada. Angkuh! Bongkak! It came across to me that why we youngsters NEVER appreciate our own local acts. Yes it is good that youngsters now support our local indie scene and all, but what happened to the zaman rock melayu ? our very own Search, Black Dog Bone, Ramli Sarip and such. You cant lie that the fact that you do listen to them. But no, we prefer to put on our music interest with the one from the dunia barat. I remember how I used to singalong to Ramli Sarip's song. It was awesome I can hardly find any teenager singing to all these melayu rock. I can hear them singing incubus, paramore, we are scientists, radiohead and such. Kenapa nak kena proud dengan warga asing ? Kenapa tak boleh sokong dgn rock legenda Malaysia ? What is going to happen to our own malaysian art scene?

We youngsters love to go shopping, it is a very bad word indeed cause you can just finish all your cash in one second. haha ! but have you guys noticed how manyyyyyyy youngsters are wearing tees that support the outsiders ? like wearing Marilyn Monroe's tee, New york Dolls, Elvis, Incubus and all these shit. It's not wrong buttt why do you adore them so much ? Why cant we wear our very own P Ramlee's tee, Saloma, Jins Samsudin, Search, Awie and all this legends in Malaysia ? Malu ke ? Takut tak cool dan tak hebat ? Itulah mentalili melayu. tak pernah berubah. Selalu mengagungkan benda luar dan tak reti nak appreciate benda yang ada di depan mata. Bila dah takada baru sibuk bagi anugerah sana sini. buat apa bagi anugerah bila orang tu dah ada. The person left the world without any appreciation. Bila dah mati, baru sibuk nak bagi award sana sini. Kenapa tak bagi bila masih hidup ?

Bukak lah mata kamu anak anak muda. Kenapa nak hidup dgn membanggakan pihak luar. Fikirkan lah. Malaysia tanah air kita, di mana tumpahnya darah kita. Tapi dengan cara anak anak muda kita sekarang, saya yakin Malaysia akan kehilangan anak anak muda yang bijak dan pandai. dan yang paling penting yang berwawasan.

* this post is not to offend anyone, this is just what I would like you people to read and think about it.
