Last night went for Soundscape Band Competition Final. Went with my colleague Kok Tong and his friend Siang, and of course my gang of fellows.
There were 9 bands competed last night, top 3 bands from each state Penang, KL and Melacca. Competition took place at Channel Dance Club which previously known as Warp. Although it was scheduled to start at 8pm but the competition started at around 8:30pm

The competition was started with Dian Bang (Electronic Stick). They are a band of 2, playing music with PCs and guitars which is quite new in local scene. The electronic stuffs they played were quite new too. But the lengthy time taken to set up was already made the whole competition become a little bit cold due to the technical problem on the P.A. systems.

The second band, Dream Machine, a band from Sarawak, their nu-metal tracks quickly brought the heat up to the Club. Very good show from them. Although there were problems on guitar amp (anyway the P.A. system giving problems all night long, a lot of technical problems happened and lot’s of time was wasted)

Finally it’s the turn of the most-awaiting band of the night ‘Deng Deng’ (Wait For A While). This newly formed hardcore-punk band was the band brought up the only pogo session in the competition. However the fun time of pogo was so short coz we were stopped by bouncers and security staffs on Chanel Dance Club.

Next was the guest performing session by Hong Kong indie pop queen The Pancakes, a telented musician. Her song “Gum Gum Gum” appeared in movie ‘McDull, Price de la Bun’ has won the 24th Hong Kong Film Awards “Best Original Film Song” year 2004. What really impressed me is, according to Silent Keat, one of the competition staffs, she is friendly, polite and easy going. This is really different from other HK stars.
