TRIBUTE TO ROCK KANGKANG 2010

Yup, gua dah cakap gua pergi, lu apasal tak pergi?

Anyway, we reached there kinda early. Like, after lunch? Awal nak mampos, konon-konon nak terserempak la dengan Irman Rockers. Haha... bertuah le. Dapat tau dorang main lepas Maghrib. Lepas Maghrib??? Adeh. Mesti habis kul 11pm. Humairah kena duduk lama la kat rumah tok-tok dia. Sorry dear. And sorry papa and mama. :p

Of course I was not interested with the other bands, so hubby and I went strolling at Pertama. Mengenang kembali zaman kanak-kanak, kitorang berdua bantai main game kat sana. Haha.. Game apa lagi, game ol-skool la. Street Fighter II and Raiden II. Sah kitorang dah tua, round ke-2 dah senget-senget badan elak peluru sambil jerit-jerit. Dulu boleh main sambil berborak gelak-gelak lagi... cehh dulu siap tau kat mana takkan kena peluru, duduk setempat patu jeling-jeling keliling, muka control la apalagi. Walau bagaimana pun.... nama kita tetap ranking 1 and 2 okay.... hehe mana tak nye, mana ada orang main game tu dah, hahaha... raking 3 nama dia AAA... (default).

Lepas ArabElly sampai, kitorang pun bergerak ke 1Cafe tu. Ternampak Hatta Junction kat sana. Pergh dah nak pergi salam dah, nak ambil gambar sama-sama. (Rupa-rupanya bukan! Hahaha... seb baik tak bikin malu). Dari jauh muka sama ok. He won the best dress award later on. Kalau korang pergi, mesti korang tau siapa. Maybe it was just us who thinks he looks like Hatta. 20 tahun la mana orang nak cam dah.

Anyway, we went in when Candy was performing. I think they look prettier than before. Of course their final song "Akan Ku Tunggu" was a major craze. There's this one guy who jumped up on stage and sang from verse 2 until the end. Potong betul. Weh mahal tau tiket ni, kesian la kat peminat Candy. Apa-apapun, Candy tetap rock.

Lepas tu, rehat untuk Solat Maghrib. Dalam pukul 8pm, Sons of Adam pulak perform. Seriously I have never listened to them before. Aku masih muda kot. Otai tetap otai. Dorang main memang sapu habis la artis muda kita sekarang. Aku suka bassist dia, tapi aku rasa dia bukan line-up original. Sessionist je kot. Tapi aku suka lah. Suka suka suka. Pastu boleh la pulak orang jerit "Itu blues! Bukan rock.." Eh eh... boleh pulak kamu ye...

Junction pula naik pentas. Time ni la kitorang dapat tau kitorang salah "Hatta" awal-awal tadi. We chanted Hatta's name until he noticed our group and came straight to shake our hands. Lu memang cool la bro. When they started, he even jumped on the monitors, like exactly above me and sang. To my notice, everyone beneath him was in awe. I quickly snapped pictures (to be uploaded) with my goddamn old fashioned camera. I should get a new one. Memang teruk la kalau ambil gambar dalam dewan. Apa-apa pun tak nampak. Nampak habuk je lebih. Of course they played the old time favourite song "Akan Ku Kenang" in a much lower key. But Hatta sure still can pull his vocals. Scream Hatta Scream! I enjoyed every bit of their perfomance.

And then Revenge came up on stage. (bunyi cengkerik)
Pemotong mood.

The most awaited band finally came up on stage, Rockers! By this time, I totally lost my voice. I could not sing along. Sad sad sad. To me, I was happy when they played Harakah. One of my favourite song. I just could not take my eyes off Irman, the drummer. To be honest, I started listening to Rockers just a couple of years ago. Thanks to hubby, it's all worth the listening. When I first heard them, I was amazed by the music. The drumming especially, Irman sure does not play like any local/malay rock bands. And I bet, some international drummers can't play like him either. So, our mission was to experience first hand on his drumming skills. Okay, memang melampau. All their songs were improvised that night. Sigh. BJ the guitar hero, and the original vocalist (what's his name) was on bass. Kitorang sempat la bergambar dengan Irman. Tapi gambar hubby je yang lawa, gambar aku cam ... Rasa macam Irman dan hubby ada perasaan dengki kat aku kot. Boleh tak time bergambar dengan aku kipas tiup kat rambut Irman lalu tertutup la muka dia. Hubby pulak tak check balik gambar! eeeeeeeee...... aku buat rambut khas untuk saat itu tau!

Takpe, gambar aku bersama Hatta lawa...

Datang la lagi ye Rockers. We love you!

p/s: Pasal sound system, no comment. Aku duduk betul-betul kat speaker.

as one of revenge army (revenge fan)....i would advice u to give some credit to revenge as well...but it's ok...maybe u didnt know that its revenge who brought ur rock stars like rockers, candy, n junction...in front of ur own eyes...n they didnt sleep for 3 straight days just to make ppl like u happy...pls appreciate the newcomers..even Johan Rockers appreciated them by calling up Ayid to sing Kekejaman with him

Rock Kangkang:

Just knew this would come.
Bro, everybody has their favourite.
And I knew they brought my heroes here. Everybody knows that. Like everybody. Did I say I was unappreciative?

Orang kata apa? Kritikan membina? hohoho..

Anyway, thanks Revenge. Bring them again soon. I sure come one...
