Boon Not Pop
Boon Not Pop is an experimental electro-acoustic improvisation project and sometime features Fairuz Sulaiman on visuals. Tan Kok Hui or better known as Boon, former drummer of Moxuan and ChongYang. He is currently drums for Furniture and occasionally appears for KLPHQ and The Maharajah Commission.
Bintang Bendahara started with just a bedroom tune and drift further slowly into a simplex multi tune composition. Generally, experimenting into all sorts of element that can be mastered and giving new hope in music recognition is our main task. Concentrating more into ambient intermission rather than normal complex type of composition. Simplicity is a must in every composition, while balancing loudness, silence, and looping process.
Zalacca was born out of suburban lull and ennui.. scuzzy, vaporous, empyreal, sprawling, squalling.. damaged sonic vignettes for fractured electric dreams.
“Ladang Gempak is an artifact of strange and caustic Malaysiana. It’s like taking a customary dump on a caked shit-stained toilet bowl, of every petrol station stop between Penang and Singapore, left unflushed for the gazillionth time. You know you have to but you don’t want to. Sonically, if you dig the Sightings or the recent output of Whitehouse (but it bears reminding that this LG recording was made in 1998), or the handful of noise acts screaming of punk rock chutzpah, this LG release will be worth every ringgit and sen you give Laminal Records.” — TOK SAWAN
