Perlawanan Kugiran

Malam tadi berlangsungnya Battle of The Bands di Micet. Keseluruhanya? Macam sial. Bosan. Kugiran-kugiran menghambarkan. Serious.

Kugiran pertama yang main untuk malam tu, aku pun tak tahu apa nama dia. It was a very, very forgettable performance. Kata-kata vokalis langsung tak clear, dengar macam dia tengah speaking Kantonis je dan bunyi gitar yang merapu.

Under the Influence merupakan performer kedua. Mereka cover lagu Jason Mraz, I'm Yours. Vokal macam ayam sakit tekak nak berkokok, so badly played. Dan ianya tidak berakhir disitu. Apparently, one of the guitarist nak tunjukkan prowess of his vocal, maka mereka perform Facedown, originally from Red Jumpsuit Apparatus. Sucks. Bad. Dia buat macam Facedown tu Bullet For My Valentine yang tengah perform, habis jadi screamo. No need for the screaming-lah. Dan juga ada orang hiasan, sebagai keyboardist, macam tiada fungsi pun, kaku macam Pinochio yang belum dihidupkan, versi perempuan.

Aku mula rasa bosan, aku rasa macam nak tidur je tengah-tengah Battle of the Band tu. Dahlah tiada orang yang mosh pun, dan aku memang resah bila aku tak boleh mosh. Aku nak tulis English boleh tak?

The 3rd band, Sad Wednesday was the highlight of the night, opening with an acceptable cover of Now That I Can See, originally from Couple. Second song they performed was something from Disagree, and to my respect, they have someone that played the saxophone. Kenny G much eh? Can't really hear the saxophone though, to the loud sound of the amp. But Kudos to you Arab.

4th band was Ciritodie (pronounce Cirit-or-die) was influenced by Guns N Roses, played Knock Knock on Heavens Door, it was acceptable to say the least, okay-lah. Tak beri perhatian sangat pun, it was that average. They played it safe.

Epoy, the name of the 5th band was lame, just like the name. I mean, Epoy? Did I just hear what the fuck? It was a one-man band, kudos to the guitarist, he was the ayam tambatan of the band. Forgettable performance.

LOL :), yes, that is the name of the next band. They received a rapturous roar for their entrance, does it live up the the hype? Yes, for the 1/3 of the time. They covered the Arctic Monkeys, one of my favourite band. They played Mardy Bum, which was restarted 3 times, I was pissed! Next song was When The Sun Goes Down. Well, the vocal just wasn't Alex Turner but people started to mosh so it was acceptable. Still, dissapointing.

7th band was Rediolab. And they performed the song that was the best to mosh to, Capital E! Though it wasn't really that wow, it was enough to make me lose my head for a while.

Dan selepas itu, aku telah mengalami food poisoning, dikejarkan ke Hospital Tampin. Kena inject dekat bontot haha, rasa janggal betul. Rasa macam kena tikam, sakit gila babi, lagi rela orang sepak bagi pengsan heih. Bukan kena inject yang sakit, tu dah biasa haha. Sakit perut tu. Jangan salah faham, aku tak takut jarum (!)

Overall, the Battle of The Bands must improve! And it was a night to forget.
