“Sorry for the ticket price increase but the bands needs more money to survive! Support your scene! It’s time we give the bands their due! They’ve been suffering for much too long! It’s time for change!”
notes: RM13!! The kids must have been furious with that! Can’t remember if there was an uproar though. I believe I was hoping to help the bands to at least get back what they put in, in terms of money for rehearsals, trannsport and all that.
Subculture went on to record a few albums with a small production house called XS (if I remember correctly lah), I heard the band is still going. The Beads released a CD-EP and an album with PonyCanyon later. Don’t know what happened to Social Infection, I think I heard them playing a few gigs a few years ago.
ABC… Dead was a band featuring Lan Bear (C. Dung & Infectious Maggots), while ART was a band which appeared in 1990 and played a few gigs at Metallica Lounge, it was the first Minor Threat-influenced band, one of them professed being “straight-edge”! ART recorded one song for the compilation “A Circle of Friends”, it was called “Stop the Madness” but they quickly disappeared after recording the tune. This is their first show after reuniting, and also the last, I think!!
