Come early and eat the tasty food at Bee Restaurant
It was a difficult gig at first as
Mar's bass (keyboard D5) didn't work, although it had worked fine at
the sound check earlier. Something to do with aweak PA system and
the sound having been turned up much louder to cope with the noise
level - as The Bee was very crowded. An Honest Mistake had played
a good acoustic but rocking set. But our set gained momentum and
I managed to overcome the drawbacks and distractions of the
non-functioning keyboard. We were allowed to play for 45 minutes
as one band had dropped out, which really made up for everything, since
I always seem to get better as the set goes on, more confident and with
greater concentration, so I don't miss words , chords etc. Some
people described our set as "awesome" which is very nice to hear.
Mar banged the bass out on the piano as best she could, she was her
usual skillful and verbally fluent self, in between songs, singing and
playing well. Then after us came The Impatient Sisters and they
were truly awesome with a borrowed handsome cello player, and they had
pretty good sound. Lovely songs, beautiful three part harmony
vocals and glockenspeil and kazoo to add a new dimension to acoustic
music in Malaysia.

system but NOT on stage. I couldn't hear my guitar at all and
thought we did terribly. But when I heard the sound on the video
it wasn't too bad. In fact the students who did the sound need to
be congratulated as they opened their ears and used them as a guide,
something most supposedly professional sound engineers seem incapable
of doing. As does Zul, the bassist in Cats who organised the
whole show and the nice caterers who made dielicious food some of which
we took home with us

well, we performed but I went
and forgot my words in the new song APOCALYPSE so we had to stop until
I gopt the opening line of the second verse. Apart from that the
sound was good and the many other acts on Saturday and Sunday were
enjoyable. Couple performed right at the end of the afternoon on
sunday and after a few of their songs the rain suddenly descended in
buckets so everyone got up on the stage while the band played Rock n
Roll, one of their most popular numbers

A good one, brilliantly
organised by Elaine Foster while Kamariah did the calculations. I
sang a song (predictably Crazy Heart) although I'd rehearsed loads of
songs I have never sung, or hardly ever in pubic before (it's like
going pubic, you feel as exposed as if your pubics were exposed (which
is much worse in M'sia than it would be in Europe - nudity is almost de
rigeur at the Edinburgh Fest for instance). Anyway this has
nothing to do with the slam which was won deservedly by Jamal. I
even read three "poems" (an insult to the form) cos E wanted me to do
that. It was very crowded at The Bee with an appreciative
audience, not forgetting Elaine's excellent top speed poems (it's the
rap style these days)

January 20 eleven,
we did it in spite of lots of sound problems, due to our plug board
three pin plug having a loose wire but the kind engineers fixed it and
miraculopusly everything worked. It was hot on the lawn stage,
but no rain at that point (although there was some drizzle for later
acts - many fine acoustic outfits played very well including Tasha's
Ink, Min'z and Rendra's group with fine girl singer) Three songs with
Wong Lip Kee playing some delicious licks on a beatiful amp kindly
leant by Rama Lohan - thanks Wong and Lohan - it's good to have real
friends. Played Like a Polar Bear, Losing nature and
Refugee. The audience very cool, were enjoying it. Thanks
to those on the mailing list who turned up sometimes with their
families and young children. It was a great day, and thanks to
KLPAC and Ian and Rosheen for hosting this fabulous event
