Band Related, Somewhat Serious Issueson September 22nd, 20092 Comments

If you’re down at the magazine shop and happen to see Galaxie magazine on the stands ….

I implore you to pick up a copy for yourself.

For Inverted Coma‘s in it~!

Yup, we’d already suspected it the other day when Edward Gomez, an editor of the magazine met up with us and started asking us questions about the band.

So do get yourself a copy …..

Or you could just like …. click on the picture, enlarge the article and read it here …

…… and indirectly contribute to magazine piracy~! WoohOoo.

But seriously now, it’s a great magazine with great content so do get yourself a copy and check it out.

Kanasai~!

More Nudist Recording ….

Band Related, Somewhat Serious Issueson August 29th, 2009No Comments

There you go ….. another topic headline to grab your attention 

(and to prove once again how kanasai I am)

So Inverted Coma went into the Studio 21:05 again the other day.

To record the vocals for the upcoming second single, which at the moment, out of any better name to call it, is named ‘Nudist Song’.

So I’ve got people asking me why the heck it was called ‘The Nudist Song’ in the first place?

Well, that’s cause one day while we were jamming in the studio, the air cond stopped working. And we were sweaty as hell.

So we did what every self respecting band would do. Strip naked. The song was written when we were all buck naked. Hence the name ‘Nudist Song’

Okay you can stop rolling your eyes now.  

You know I’m just messing with you right?

On a more serious note. The song was written with one thing in mind. The beach.

You see, while other countries wait 3 season to get to summer and the beach, we Malaysians have good weather all year round. So to quote David’s first line of the Nudist Song …

“Summer nights are something us equator folks get round the years so we don’t need to wait till then to show our crooked tails”

And that’s exactly what the whole song is all about. Sand and sea, girls, beach volleyball, fun and everything beachy (not bitchy mind you) you can think of.

So when we were thinking of names for the song, we were hard pressed not to give it a cliche’d and gay ass name. Like …

“Happy Fun Song” or …

“Malaysian Brown Watered Beaches” or ….

“Mandi Manda Di Pantai”

And us being plain kanasai dudes, mention the word beach and nudity came into mind. So we thought we’d use that name for the time being and change it into something else once the song was done.

The song is done. In fact it’s been done for a long time now. The name still sticks though.

But we figured no Malaysian radio station’s gonna play a song called ‘Nudist’ so it’ll probably be called something else once the official recording is out.

So there, a brief explanation of an upcoming song that, if radio stations knew was centered around nudity, might never be played on Malaysian airwaves.

It’ll take pobably a month or so before it’s ready for public consumption.

In the meantime, here are pictures of 4 clueless people in the studio to tide you till then.

Incidentally, ‘Miracles’ was number 6 last week. So for those who have been giving their fullest support all this while, I thank you.

For the rest who’ve come to their senses and realized that Inverted Coma is too kanasai for you, I appeal for you to dispel all logic and continue voting.

Miracles can be downloaded here

Kanasai~!

Thanks for voting….

You know what happiness is?

Happiness is having good friends and blog readers who, despite knowing just how kanasai you are,  help you out whenever you’re in need.

Yup …… I’m talking about that Kanasai dude in that band called Inverted Coma.

coma1.jpg

Take a trip over to www.flyfm.campurchart.com.my and you’ll notice that we’ve climbed up to number 7.

And I have you guys to thank for that.

So do keep the votes coming and take note that you can vote with one e-mail address per day. Meaning if you have 250 email addresses you can vote a total of 250 times per day.

WoohoOoo ….. what better way to utilize your day than to refresh your window 250 times and vote for Inverted Coma.

But then who the hell has 250 email addresses anyway? So I’m content just knowing you guys are voting. For that I’m grateful.

So like I said, do keep voting. Help us reach Number 1. Should you we actually hit number 1, we’re giving out rewards to everyone …..

…..rewards in the form of you knowing someone who has a number 1 hit on the FlyFM chart.

Ok I’d better not push it. You’re probably think now …. why the heck did I vote for that guy anyway?

But on a more serious note, thanks mates for your continuous support and we pray that it will keep coming, for even as we type, a new single is on its way. And the title of the song ryhmes with ‘Nudist’.

Ahhh … thought you’d like to know that.

For those of you who haven’t yet heard ‘Miracles’, you can download it right here

You know I don’t ask much of you loyal jaythean.com readers.

Other than those times I make you visit my blog everyday … and insist that you click on my ads….. and leave comments and …

 … okay that’s besides the point.

You know that band I keep going on and on about?

coma2.jpg

Yup the one called Inverted Coma with all those sweaty ugly guys in it. 

Well they’ve managed to get themselves on the FlyFM Campur Chart. ‘Miracles’ made its debut at number 10 last Sunday.

You can download the song right here :

Inverted Coma – Miracles

Being fresh at number 10, we do hope that you will contribute to our climb up the charts.

Or at the very least help us stay at number 10.

Otherwise we’d be the first band in music history to debut in a music chart one week, then get kicked off the following week.

Oh dear, why do I feel that coming?

So, here I make a small plea. Do check out our song on the Campur Chart link below, or download the song using the link above. If you like what you hear, vote for us~!

All you have to do is go to www.flyfm.com.my/campurchart

You’ll notice us at number 10 on the 13th July chart

Click on vote.

Register your email address.

Then … tempting as it is to vote for the other bands so as to kick us off the charts, I implore you to go against your better judgement and vote for us~!

Should you unwittingly find yourself wanting more of the band, do check out our myspace profile at

www.myspace.com/invertedcoma

or our blog (with new pictures from our recent photo shoot) at:

www.inverted-coma.com

or become a facebook ‘fan’ over at

Inverted Coma Facebook Profile

Incidentally the Fly FM Campur Chart goes on air every Sunday at 7-8pm.

Hope you’ll tune in this Sunday.

And hope to goodness we’ll still be on the chart then ….

Kanasainess~!

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 …. 

nudist9.jpg

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~!
