Versi Bahasa Indonesia silakan klik di sini

Cupumanik are back. These Bandung’s grunge veteran just released their newest single with a video clip, “Grunge Harga Mati” a few days ago. This song is their first ever single after quitting from a major label. It’s also their significant step to fully apply a kind of Do-It-Yourself ethos. Che, the frontman, said that starting December 2010 they will release one song every two months and give it away a.k.a. free of charge. Another six songs are ready to be distributed thru next year.

The single “Grunge Harga Mati” is like a declaration that Cupumanik is identical to grunge, Cupumanik is grunge itself. They have always been tagged as a grunge band by the public, and it naturally has become their flesh and blood so this time they formally declared it. Regarding the video clip, it basically talks about the transformation that happened with Cupumanik, from major label to an indie band. It is expressed in the clip via the change in their fashion statement.

Check out their newest single & video clip in YouTube. Keep updated with them via www.cupumanikband.com

A Journey

:: Introduction, playlist and photo, written and handpicked by Tiara herself ::

Let’s pack our stuff, we’re going on a trip, visiting places, travel through time and space.
But first, bring what you need. Put them in your backpacks. Make sure all is checked. We might have to give up what we have and trade them with things along the road. Because that’s a road trip is all about. No expectations, only excitements. Everything is random. We will not have the knowledge to see what is going to happen. We just have to experience it. Here’s a little something to add something to your life.

Now, let’s get lost.

Chop-N-Roll: My On-The-Go Playlist

:: Introduction and playlist, written and handpicked by Vero Himself ::

Saya sangat kaget ketika membaca email dari Mr. Dethu kemarin yang mengingatkan saya harus mengirim list lagu-lagu pilihan saya dalam dua hari. Memang beliau sudah meminta saya dari beberapa bulan lalu, tapi somehow ada saja kerjaan yang mengganggu ketika saya mau mulai memilih lagu dari iPod model primitif saya.

Berikut adalah playlist dari on-the-go-2 dalam iPod saya yang layarnya penuh guratan dan bercak oli; sering dipasang di workshop saya, biasa terdengar di antara bunyi batu gerinda yang beradu dengan pipa baja, tumbukan palu yang menghajar plat aluminum setebal 2mm (lebay…).

Keras? Belum tentu, seperti halnya workshop saya yang kadang super berisik tapi kadang sunyi, pilihan musik saya tidak terpatok pada satu genre. Yang penting bagi saya, kadang bisa memompa semangat, tapi kadang juga menurunkan emosi ketika salah satu tukang las salah potong pipa.

Never Say Die, Jakarta Rock Parade

Tulisan—lebih tepatnya curhat—yang bermaksud menyemangati Jakarta Rock Parade ini sejatinya adalah materi lawas (tayang di Musikator pertama kali pada Juli 2009), walau pamali untuk dibilang usang. Memang, di kala itu belum ada konser rock lokal berskala gigantik. Belum ada yang nekat-berani mati menyelenggarakannya. Dan saya tidak rela jika Jakarta Rock Parade layu sebelum berkembang. Saya memimpikan Indonesia memiliki festival musik rock sekaliber Ozzfest. Syukurnya tidak lama berselang muncul kemudian Java Rockin’Land, yang bukan cuma bermutu tinggi, tapi juga termegah se-Asia Tenggara. Artinya spirit Jakarta Rock Parade menolak dimatikan. Yay.

Ya, artikel ini sengaja tetap saya tampilkan di situs pribadi saya ini demi mendokumentasikan perspektif yang pernah saya tuangkan agar menjadi lebih rapi, tak lagi berceceran tak beraturan, bisa menjadi arsip yang sahih lagi sinambung.

Sampul Album Cadas Monumental: LOVEHUNTER

Setelah cabut dari Deep Purple, David Coverdale segera saja membentuk Whitesnake lalu berturut-turut merilis Snakebite serta Trouble di tahun yang sama, 1978. Namun dalam konteks sensasi—sanggup membelalakkan mata publik, to be precise—adalah karya mereka yang terbit pada 1979, Lovehunter.
