Singapore and Malaysia indie scene (effectionatly called the underground) can be very serious and tired looking at time. Bands popping up with heavy emphasis on ethic, phylosophy and ideas, but lack in one important factor. Fun. This is just the band that grab you by the neck and scream party! at you everytime you listen to them. Guys playing surf music and singing about adolences, in thick Malay accent. Singapore dont produce many fun bands since the classic Rockers (rokkkkk) anymore. Only one band in our scne that i think can rock a crowd this hard, and they are Plague Of Hapiness from Pasir Gudang. So far they have released 2 CD albums, 2 demo cassettes and their song was featured in the film Dari Jemapoh to Mancester.
The sordid saga that is the Vorce Fomit story started in late 1993 when four night-shift taxi drivers decided to take musical matters into their own hands and start their own band. This motley crew of treble spankers has had many line-up changes and messy misadventures since then - with one thing in common - they still can't play their instruments properly. Despite charming obstacles like being expected to play for free 90% of the time (and in the few instance when they do get moolah, get labeled sellout by dogmatic scenesters) and a media that tries its best to pretend 'local music' doesn't exist (and in the few instance when they do get exposure, get labeled 'sellout' by dogmatic scenesters), these style-deprived shenanigans are here to stay.
