Perth Express - Discography

Metal-tinged crust/hardcore band from Germany, this band will surely blow your ears off. Completely underrated and they deserve more plays, one of the illest.

For fans of Trap Them, Cursed, Botch, and His Hero is Gone.

Dag Nasty - Can I Say (Reissue)

Dag Nasty is possibly one of the best bands ever existed, at least that what I think. Combining the urgency of early hardcore/punk predecessors, with their own signature of heart-wrenching melodies, Dag Nasty successfully get so many recognitions throughout the years. Along with Soulside, Rites of Spring, Moss Icon, Gray Matter and other D.C natives, The Nasty is highly regarded to be one of the earliest "emotive hardcore" sound that emerged from the D.C area. Extremely great band, I could almost listen to this album every single day.


The Slits - Cut (1979)

Late 70s dub/funk influenced female fronted punk group, The Slits gave punk a whole new perspective to look at. Additionally, what's good about this band is that they have this Marvin Gaye cover song "I Heard It Through the Grapevine", fucking epic. Hell, it couldn't get better than this.


There'll Be Quiet After the Storm.

Oh yeah, I'm so stoked to attend the grand opening of Times Bookstore at Lippo Karawaci tomorrow. It's looking great from the outside, haven't checked out the inside though but I reckon it's gonna be such a blast to experience the place. I believe they also have the cafe where people could hang out and chat. Sweet!

Lately I've Been Thinking...

JUSTICE - Outside Looking In

Tie that noose around each others neck
sell me something, keep me in check
I can’t drown my identity, not myself
it’s hard enough to be yourself

Every day
I see a world
drown in its ways

The more we fight it, more it seems to stay
they’ll enforce their lies, with their last breath
future generations call them heroes in their deaths

The guilt of where my eyes have been
can’t turn away cause I’ve already seen
all I can hear are society’s ignorant screams

Let the dust fall free
let it fall

From the outside
looking in
From the outside

Watching the world spin out of control
from the outside
I’m trying to show it down
from the outside

I'm so stoked for the Japan trip, could not possibly imagine how it will turn out. But yeah, I was thinking that maybe it might cheer me up from what I've lost. Life's a bitch and I have to deal with it, I just don't want to run in the same circles over and over again. This time I gotta break out and spin my life back on track.

Oh well, it's just one of those days when you feel you gotta punch the clock and say: YOU'LL NEVER GET THE BEST OF ME. Yet, life keeps running wild, like a blaze of wind calling up my name and tell me that the race ain't over yet.

"you're only young once, so do it right".

Review Film: Be Kind Rewind

Michel Gondry has successfully made one of the most refreshing yet creative movies. Additionally, with the help of such casts like Jack Black and Mos Def, Gondry was able to operate in certain things that have never been thought before. A simple story about trial and error, and doing your own stuff. These two characters that applied in this movie, added some spice up and eventually gave this movie something to care about, which is very exciting for me to see. It's definitely a comedy movie with strong edge in it, and you know you don't wanna miss this!

Rating: 8/10

Review Film: Days of Being Wild

Another beautifully cinema made by the one and only Wong Kar Wai, Days of Being Wild is an instant visual of delusion among contemporary realm of love, loss and rejection. The movie perfectly captured every second of emptiness that drawn inside out, right from the very beginning of the story. The casts were great and they were all acting champ, WKW didn't pick the wrong ones. Yet, what I really like about seeing this movie is the melancholic feeling which I can not avoid for some reasons. Thus, I can never tell you how much I love every twist and details that WKW offered in this movie. I reckon you should check out this movie if you haven't. Trully magnificent!

Rating: 8/10

Welcome to the Real Suck.

Good Guys Lose Big Time.

Cloak/Dagger - We Are

Basically good shit, somewhere between Adolescents, The Germs, and the almighty Black Flag. Uhm, with slightly hints of raw cranky garage stuff. For fans of Career Suicide, Fucked Up, and The Vicious. Get into it!

brain freeze!

locked out, empty jaws
ill life got me struck on my knees
sniffed out, worn out
hell, gimme just a small air to breath
you're sucking the life outta me
I'm totally brain freeze
brain freeze
brain freeze
to the ground
