cold gin, bukan nak suruh korang togok, tapi aku suka lagu version Death Angel. Cam http://www.shadowbayangan.blogspot.com/ post kat blog dia Death Angel is having a show in KL soon so just reminiscent about the past, chewah.
Aku lagi suka version Frolic In The Park nye kaset dari original KISS version. Slow down giler Death Angel masa lagu ni first time aku dengar kaset FITP... Dan sampai skarang...bila orang sebut tingkat 3, kadang2 tu boleh ternyanyi korus 3rd Floor haha. Tu la penangan kaset Frolic In The Park ni.
Anyway, I'm not going, my quota for rock n roll has hit the limit for the time being. Rasa cam melampau lak, but its Maiden so I guess its ok
Speaking of Maiden How come the funniest rumour I read recently is April 2012 new tour ( presumably next History Tour ) will start in Dubai?
Freaking Dubai dont have a budget flight, and I asked my friend who had worked there, he says there are backpackers places there...but I think its going to be too damn expensive. So I think South East Asia will be KL's turn... hooray. Oooo I hope I do have a new job then, yeah, maybe I need two jobs to fulfill my responsibilites and duties haha, but I guess I got to just be self-disciplined to see Maiden again...
In fact tadi baru bual ngan kawan aku budak India, dia cakap " eh dua kerja penat tau", aku tahu la rabak punye lagi dah tua tua gini tak kuat dah..
Next, the backcover...of...the metal box.
KK Downing.. leaving Judas Priest is like.. ok, but to leave at this moment? Near start of the so called farewell tour which would be nice if they play in Singapore or Malaysia for me to see them haha. I think there must be a big disagreement for it to end this way...
Judas Priest release one of the best rock albums for me of all time - Defenders Of The Faith, here and there they got some great songs on other albums, but I am not a big fan of their Judas Priest Style/Rob Halford Screaming Heavy Metal. A fan definitely but I wont say I am a big fan... but like others out there, I got my own setlist of how I want Judas Priest to play at my void deck for 2 hours.. tyrant, diamond and rust, jawbreaker, out in the cold, ...hehe...
So...clock went backwards share this amazing bootleg boxset of the 3 shows Judas Priest did in Japan 2008 in Yokohama, and two Tokyo shows including Budokan. A very nice collection for those interested.
Angel is there...the best post reunion song with Rob Halford, and their best song ever Rock Hard Ride Free, is in there too...So makes a nice souvenir especially with KK Downing no more.
Speaking of clock went backwards, the 3 Maiden shows in Australia that I attended has finally received an excellent audio recording treatment by the legendary taper Navigator.
Melbourne one is nice because, for those who attended the Singapore one and realise, like me, something is just not right with Talisman song performance. Bruce did say in Melbourne opening nite ( not the Soundwave show, the first two Intimate Swarray shows I am talking about ) regarding the difficulty of the song and they pushed it nearer the start.Unfortunately for me, Adrian Smith solo for Coming Home is no more like the Moscow's and Singapore's one, I like that version better haha.
they are really good, make it soundboard-like haha, and no, no maniacal giggling rowdy noises and horrible singalongs from me. I am faraway from the taper haha.
next, the long, so long that everyone forgets about it Sweet Charity's 40th anniversary show in Singapore, which I attended and reviewed few years back? haha, its that long, is to be released as a special edition for the Singapore market only. I think its going to be $60 per set. Freaking expensive hah. I got to dig out the bootleg of this show and listen to it again...Maybe if Black Night which is part of the encore is not included, then I will upload it on youtube.
thats all for now I guess....

Aku yang tengok video ni pun fikir, eh orang2 yang kat blakang tu selamat ke? apsal makcik tu siap bawak beg lagik masa lari kena kejar tsunami?
South Sanriku -- Tsunami seen from Shizugawa High School
kat Singapura lak, aku gi sembahyang jumaat berapa minggu lepas, semua masjid seluruh pulau Singapore kumpul dari jemaah semayang jemaat derma khas untuk mangsa di Jepun.
Plus lain2 la, budak2 madrasah kat Sengkang buat poster untuk ambasador Jepun la, kat F1 Sepang pun ada jugak donation drive, SLeague main bola siap Hidetoshi Nakata turun main dan wasted aku tak follow up nak pergi tengok.
Tapi entah eh pada aku ada yang opportunist, contoh macam apa yang terjadi kat Iron Maiden punye event tshirt untuk 2 shows yang kena kensel pasal tragedi tu hari , ""yang Maiden nye kapalterbang nak landing Tokyo airport lagi sepuluh minit terus terjadi gempa bumi tu dan dorang last minit masa mula buat pendaratan dapat arahan dan kena terbang tinggi balik dan pergi Nagoya airport "" yang jual online ( takde dates untuk bezakan tshirt jual kat tempat lokasi untuk sapa yang betul2 hadir ngan jualan online satu dunia untuk peminat yang nak design tshirt tu), Maiden dah announce setiap penjualan tshirt ni keuntungan pergi kat Red Cross Japan.
Tapi pasal ramai peminat panik, padahal Maiden FC aku rasa dah cetakan keempat design tshirt ni, sampai skarang tshirt ni ada lagi kalo nak beli pasal memang untuk bantu rakyat Jepun yang dalam kesusahan, dan jugak ada yang ambik kesempatan beli lebih masa mula jual dulu, jadi kat ebay boleh la nampak harga tshirt ni melambung2 sampai tu hari dah double price dah peminat2 beli, padahal kalo tunggu FC online bawak stok baru dah ok.
Tapi ni masing2 nye pemikiran kan...
Skarang ni, kalo korang perasan, cetekan event tshirt untuk Tokyo show ( yang ada dates!! untuk sapa yang pergi tu show ), mesti ada somewhere out there kat storeroom atau gudang somewhere in Tokyo. Maiden belum announce lagi apa nak buat ngan tshirt2 ( yang ada dates! ) yang berlambak2 ni.
Aku nak tengok bila diumumkan penjualan ( dan tentu untuk Japan Red Cross jugak la kan ) ngan harga lebih mahal pasal rarity nye, mesti ada orang dapatkan lebih, lepas tu masuk ebay jual harga giler babi, cam baru lepas semalam kelmarin Florida/Tampa shows, event tshirt abis dalam 20 minit kedai merchandise bukak, orang kat depan dah beli banyak2...lepas tu kat ebay harga ada dah sampai nak jual beratus2 dah...
lagi skali aku cakap la - tapi ni masing2 nye pemikiran kan
So another disturbing, distressing, horrible video to appear in youtube regarding the Japanese Tsunami which Ed Force One missed the prior earthquake at Tokyo during their arrival by about 10mins.
South Sanriku -- Tsunami seen from Shizugawa High School
People running for their lives and not sure whether everyone in this video made it.
The online Event Tshirt for Japan ( with no dates for those not at the show but want the design ), is I think doing a lot of sales with I think being sold out for at least 3 times when immediately put on sale, and now I think reprinted again and still available with all proceed to Japanese Red Cross.
I read stories of Maiden fans who even bought sizes that are not theirs just because they are afraid the tshirt is out of stock for good and they just want to support the charity drive and also to have a remembrance of this event. Good For Them.
I thought of going for the charity football match in the local Singapore football league which features Hidetoshi Nakata but cannot make it.
Anyway its very warm feeling to read up daily Malaysian newspapers with ads from the Girl Guides asking donations for the Japanese tragedy, even during the F1 Sepang previous week there were donation drives,
while in Singapore, there was a week when the Friday Prayers congregation in all mosques in Singapore support a special donation for the Japanese people.
So now lets see, what happens to the REAL event tshirt for the Japanese shows ( with the dates!! for the people who are actually there ), which must now be lying in Tokyo somewhere.
I think if the price is maybe reasonable I would also get one as a sign to support the Japanese Red Cross but I doubt so as I think the price will be expensive and even much more so when some hits ebay.

On my experience attending this show, I did mentioned that this gig could be the best show I am fortunate to be present for 2011 even though I am seeing my favourite band Iron Maiden four times on the current tour. I still say that this Lovehunters show is as good and amazing as any of the four Iron Maiden gigs I attended this year. Lovehunters were just as electric and their entertainment momentum never miss a beat for the 3 hours plus they were on stage.
The great surprise is this dvd content includes all the stage banter/Mat Kental Buah story/Grand Funk/Led Zep covers in it, so we have about 2hr 45 mins of content, I really like the sound of this dvd and satisfied with the packaging and picture quality. Love the camera on the drummer. This after usually being dissaptointed by some other Singapore/Malaysia rock n roll bands who come out with poor quality dvds. That is why usually I will do my own personal taping of local rock concerts I attend in Spore/KL/JB for my own listening pleasure and memories of the event because I know even if there is an official release, I tend to be dissapointed with the content and quality.
A great buy this DVD. Strongly recommended. I got it at Muzika for $21. Because I bought an extra copy. UNFORTUNATELY - The three songs featuring Ramli Sarip - Demi Cinta/Bayang-Bayang/Blues Untuk Rakyat is not included, must be some sort of music label issues. What a waste. Anyway, I had uploaded these three songs audio performances of that night from my own humble personal recording in youtube. But please do not make this an excuse not to get this dvd ok? Next, eagerly waiting for the Sweet Charity dvd of their 40th anniversary show at the same place.
Ulasan cakap Melayu pulak - BELI BEB!!!!! Malay Rock N Roll at its best..tak payah berbual banyak2...Aku tengok kat Muzika banyak lagi...
Anyway, ni yang tiga lagu Ramli Sarip perform tu takde dalam...just in case korang nak dengar audio dia.. Selain tu lain semua ada bukak baju semua ada haha....

Last kopek, dalam packaging dvd ni ada dua kopun, satu kopun gi Party World KTV, dan jugak lagi satu kopun donut free kat kedai donut kat Yokoso. Yokoso siak!! So kalo korang yang kat Malaysia, kasi members korang yang kat Singapore la kopun2 ni haha.
