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 …

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

The crowd was raring to go and so were we.

We managed to get a quick snap before taking the stage

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

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….

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

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

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~!

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.

 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 …..
