Nudist Recording ….

Band Related, Somewhat Serious Issueson June 18th, 20096 Comments

What comes into mind when you see a CD with this scrawled on it ? 

nudist1.jpg

Why NAKED people of course. A porn video being filmed. Right?

But if you were to take a look at the whole CD and saw this …. 

nudist2.jpg

 You’d probably be thinking something else no?

Hey I hear people puking.

…… please tell me you didn’t just picture members of Inverted Coma naked.

There’re lots of people you probably want to see naked …. 

crw_7053.jpg

These 4 ugly people are definitely not any of them ….

No no …… the Nudist is the second single that Inverted Coma is recording at the moment…..

…..The follow up to the highly successful first single called Miracles, the song that has until now not received any airplay on the radio nor has anyone heard of …..

Sigh ….. this rock star dream’s going to need more work than I thought.

On a more serious note now  ……

Been busy for the past few weeks doing 3 things.

1. Passing the first single, Miracles to just about every radio station in town

2. Heading into the studio for the recording of the second single, the Nudist song.

3. Fantasizing that I’m a big rock star touring India, Thailand and Cambodia.

Well, I’ve been busy with no 3 ever since I’ve been a teenager. So much so that seriously, doing shows in those 3 countries would seem more of a dream than a joke.

Where no 1 is concerned, the good ol people at the radio station have all been relatively nice and kind to us. When I say kind I mean they didn’t take one look at our CD and throw it into the trash.

So in a bid to get support from all loyal jaythean.com readers, do listen out for Miracles on radio stations such as Flyfm, Mix, Hitz, HotFm, TraxxFM and the like. The song is available for download right here …..

Inverted Coma – Miracles

I know why you guys are looking at me funny. You’re probably thinking  ….

“This guy’s a dumbass. If I’ve already downloaded the song, why bother listening out for it on the radio right?”

Well, you’re both right and wrong …

For one, you’re right. I’m a dumbass.

But here’s where you’re wrong, the song might appear on radio charts which might require voting. If that’s the case, I suggest you do what’s right …

Put off your plans of donating to charity … and vote for good ol Kanasai Jay’s band here.

I know I know …. I’m shameless.

Anyway, there’re a few pictures of our recording session in JD’s studio that I want to share with you here, in the hope that you’ll be convinced how good Inverted Coma really is ….

A picture of me and Julie cringing at the horrible music being recorded ….

 A picture of Raymond playing with his iPhone when the music started getting boring …..

Raymond was playing with his iPhone from the start ….I guess the music was really boring …. 

nudist8.jpg

A picture of what we started doing when all of us started getting bored of our own song ….

A picture of David sighing and wondering why he actually joined the band ….

I’m glad I didn’t take up marketing or advertising.

But seriously now …. on to the actual photos and shameless self promo for Inverted Coma ….. (pictures courtesy of Joe)

Do check out www.myspace.com/invertedcoma for more info on the band. Will create a link for you guys to download Miracles soon … once I figure out how to create that link.

I’ll be heading into the studio next week to lay my guitar parts down ….

Will have loads of other pictures to bore you with then ….

Kanasai~!

Ugly Guys on Seventeen Magazine

Band Related, Thoughts to Ponderon July 31st, 20087 Comments

Have you gotten the August issue of Seventeen magazine?

Why not?

I mean when you’re talking about a magazine like Seventeen, who’d actually get it just to look at pictures of skimpily clad teenagers and read up on fashion and beauty tips?

That’s crazy.

You’d also want to read up on the extremely in depth and meaningful articles they publish from time to time.

Like articles on certain bands out there that totally rock your socks off ….

Bah …. who am I kidding?

Now if you do get a copy of the August issue, and if you’re able to tear your eyes away from all the eye candy that makes up 95% of the magazine, do turn to the page that looks something like this…..

invertedcoma.jpg

And if your attention allows and the irresistable urge to just flip to the next page for more eye candy doesn’t arise, then  do read up about the interview Inverted Coma had with Seventeen Magazine just before the Roxy Summer Splash 2008

We’d really like to thank Seventeen Magazine for putting in between the pages of pictures of sweet young things and buffed up hunks, a picture of 5 ugly men who could’ve easily marred their reputation and quite possibly brought to the ultimate downfall of their magazine.

…. Until the next Summer Splash~!

Roxy Summer Splash 2008 Experience

Band Related, My Favourites, Somewhere Elseon June 10th, 20087 Comments

Let’s start my Roxy Summer Splash 2008 experience with these pictures….

Being in KT for the past 1 and a half years, I kinda forgot that there were this many humans in Malaysia.

The fact was, even from the beginning of the event, people were lining up from the Sunway Lagoon entrance all the way to Sunway Pyramid.

We caught this view as we were making our way down to the Surf Beach. Down below people were jostling and pushing their way through, some managed to break past the police barricade and so chaos ensued.

I heard some people got stabbed and a girl got raped.

Nah ….. I’m just kidding.

But there were a few people who actually fainted though.

Of course at the back of our minds we imagined they were all lining up for our concert. We also imagined people jostling and pushing through just to get a glimpse of their favourite Inverted Coma member.

I think some people call this phenomenan syiok sendiri

Whatever it is, we were spared the extreme agony the others had to endure. And all thanks to this … 

roxy10.jpg

So we went into Sunway Lagoon via the Elephant Walk. And the sight that greeted us …. 

roxy11.jpg

roxy12.jpg

The crowd was raring to go and so were we.

We managed to get a quick snap before taking the stage

roxy14.jpg

See, having been relatively inactive for the past 6 months, we were rather skeptical about whether or not the crowd would accept us ….

roxy3.jpg 

roxy211.jpg

No worries there…….

For not only did they respond to us, they even started moshing down below.

And once we hit the stage, the adrenaline rush was like no other feeling in the world.

But enough words already ….

 We had David at the mic….

roxy15.jpg

 Me on lead guitar ….

roxy18.jpg

 Ray on the keyboards and rhythm guitar….

roxy16.jpg

 Julian on the bass ….

roxy19.jpg

 And Kev on the drums …..

roxy17.jpg

But on stage, we aren’t known as David, Jason, Raymond, Julian and Kevin….

roxy20.jpg

No … on stage we’re Inverted Coma~!

roxy22.jpg

roxy231.jpg

roxy25.jpg

roxy27.jpg

And rock the stage we did.

I can’t really remember a more fun and fulfilling gig……. 

roxy6.jpg

A shoutout of thanks to all those who turned up to support us on that day, and to all those who indirectly gave us your support!

Also to all of you who were rocking your heads off down below, I hope you didn’t get too much sand in your eyes or get hurt too badly from all that shoving.

Cheers to all of you~! 

A video of our performance coming up in my next posting …..

Un-Kanasai~!

Roxy Summer Splash 2008

Band Related, Somewhat Serious Issues, Thoughts to Ponderon June 1st, 20086 Comments

A question I ask of you …..

What has Seventeen Magazine and Inverted Coma got to do with each other?

No, Inverted Coma’s not a band of perverts who oogle at seventeen year olds~!

At least I think we’re not.

No ….. what’s really happening here is that Inverted Coma will be given a 2 page feature in the August 2008 issue of Seventeen Magazine.

I know, I know, that still doesn’t explain the connection.

Well, Inverted Coma will be performing at the Roxy Summer Splash at the Sunway Lagoon Surf Beach on the 7th of June 2008 which is co-organized by Seventeen Magazine.

And since we’re one of the many bands taking the stage on that day, a 2 page article will be written on us.

The other day before we went into the studio for jamming, a nice gal called Charlotte came in and did an interview with us.

imag0456.jpg

imag0460.jpg

 She asked us loads of questions about the band.

So us being the professional musicians we are, we did what was right …..

….. we lied through our teeth and exaggerated on just about everything.

But on a more serious note, a whole lot of things were asked and I do believe that if our band were to be summed up on 2 pages, it would be these 2 pages due to appear in August in Seventeen Magazine.

Well ……. at least we hope Charlotte keeps to her word and filters out all the nonsense and mindless jokes we made throughout the interview.

So there ……. if you happen to be a subscriber of Reader’s Digest or National Geographic …..

….. I say enough with all that junk already. Time to start reading Seventeen Magazine. Especially the upcoming August issue.

And of course not forgetting this upcoming gig …..

  • Roxy Summer Splash 2008
  • Sunway Lagoon, Surf Beach
  • 7th June 2008 (Saturday)
  • 1pm – 8pm
  • Bands performing : Inverted Coma, Pop Shuvit, Frequency Cannon and loads more

So if you’re free, do come on over.

See you guys there ~!
