UPDATE! Monday, 31st December 2007: Oh Seven! Gone To Heaven @ The Annexe
note: it’s a FREE SHOW, and all acts are playing 3/4 songs each set (around 20 mins)
LIST OF PERFORMERS BELOW BOSS!
Affable punk rock crew, dishing out street-wise socio-political observations, sometimes with a bit reggae and beery jazz in the mix.
Nice young people with very good table manners, that is if they are not too drunk lah. Expect warped and totally unrecognizable covers of ABBA and BONEY M. Well, I wish!
One of the most promising young singer-songwriters which hasn’t gone into all that flashy KL fine-dining and expensive beer circuit. Bring freshly laundered hankies!
Yup, it’s a hurriedly put together crew by our new friends. Back in the UK, singer & guitarist Anne is playing with THE VENOM SEEDS, Dave drums for SKULL DISCO, while the bassist has never played bass before! Cool!
The old farts will be back. No promises though, but if we do appear we’ll try to do a few new tunes you’ve never heard before. We are currently taking loads of vitamins, so tak lah semput!
THE ELEANOR SHOTGUN AFFAIR
They were known once as Blister, now the name’s gone longer and there’s a nice all-smiling chick on keyboards. Swoonful melodies and swinging hips; indie-rock that will make you pop!
Newly minted punk rock superstars who have been playing more gigs than many bands 10 years older. Could they be the Hujan of DIY punk?
Old-school pop-rock/folk duo, one of the first to ditch the Top 40 pub circuit for a much more rewarding artistic pursuit. They have been DIY before you were born!
Damn fine young men with sensitive ears for melodies and rocking Bad Religious tunage. Lurked around for years but rarely seen in person. Men of mystery indeed.
AZIZ CIPLAK & THE YANDSEN!
Avant-Noise “ouch! me ears” wrecking crew. They turn farting into high-art! Not for the faint of heart.
Two handsome young boys with six-pack torsos who have a knack for covering the scene’s old classics; priming and taming the beasts for a “wider audience”! Very marketable.
You know him already lah. I mean, even the nasty bouncers at the Zouk disco know him! A mighty star who brightens our lives with his witty mispronouncements!
BIN JIDAN (AKA NIK)
Meor’s busker alumni and fellow territorial DBKL dodger. Basically Meor with a bigger bite!
Young, fresh and full of pop!
THE MAYBES (cannot confirmed till the last minutes!)
old-school singer-songwriter/busker who knows more about the streets
of KL than DBKL themselves.

DEP (Dull Entertainment Programme)
Original indie-pop-punk collision from the then fertile Kuantan underground scene.
To be confirmed, as he’ll turn up if he can after playing with his current side-band (THE DESERTERS). Well known as the indie-rock god of Singapore.
Will be at service if there’s time to spare. Started life as the frightening 667 – Neighbour of the Beast but now resigned to the fact that hitting perfect pitch is a fantasy.
(listen to one wee song: here)
BAU_BAU MASSIVE! – Yup! There’s a disco happening upstairs at the ol’ cinema AKA ex-Liquid disko, organised by the Bau-Bau Massive! Bring your booty!
