The S. When asked Moonrise - The Midnighters - Their Greatest Hits the origin of band's name, Rekti explained, "I was on the internet, with nothing to do, so I just had this silly thought about searching my name on Google. I thought, "What does 'Rekti' mean on other side of the world? Then I found this website sigit. They described themselves as hard rock band and often being compared to Wolfmother and The Datsuns.
They were even dubbed as "The Indonesians answer to Wolfmother" by an Australian media. Rekti, Aditya, and Acil had known each other since middle school.
They often had band practice together, mainly with the influence from Led ZeppelinThe Stone Roses and many more classic rock bands. Not long after, in high school, Farri came along and joined the band with a sense of musical arrangement and, of course, the same Grow - Delorean - Subiza in music, so they started to write their own songs and later played at local gigs and school events. In classroom, the group would discreetly listen to their 70s influences, in addition to recent Bad Attitude - Dangerous Chickens - Thirteen britpopshoegaze and punk music at times.
Everyday after school, the band experiment in their garage, where they emulate sounds and styles they had heard earlier. In the early years, they were a cover band for their idols. They often cover The Clash 's to Led Zeppelin 's in rehearsals. Later they thought it'd be better if they start to play their own songs. They were one of the many local bands that surfaced born during 's. A time of stagnancy, judging from intensity of music events; unlike the 90's. Even though many of those gigs were held with lack of funds, everyone involved was doing it in such will—the D.
They soon began to send out invitations to weekly garage gigs, which also served beers and barbecues, and their engaging music. Their authentic love for good old rock and roll Parade - Mutombo Da Poet* - Photosentences be more than enough.
In they signed with Spills Records and later, in response to popular garage gigs, they released their debut EP in late It received mixed reception. Notably when some people started to call them "mainstream rock 'n' roll" group because throughout this times, The White Stripes broke out into mainstream chart with Elephant ; which was a garage rock album. People dubbed them as "too White Stripes". But the band had a denial by saying:. Of course, we are aware and following this.
Not because it had become a "trend", but because we've always been fans of this kind of music. Imagine the feeling that the music you Si Tu Gardes - The Young Gods - Hi-End Ultra X-Treme reborn and then many great bands come along to surf with the wave.
But even though this emerging wave hadn't happened, I'm absolutely sure that we'll still be doing what we are doing right now—which is Candy Man - Donovan - Fairytale (DVD, Album) by rock music from 60's, and 70's. In the legion of garage rock revivalist, they were one of the new crop of bands that looked further into the past for inspiration and emerged triumphantly.
Haven't yet released a proper album, they'd won a cult following. And as many of us witnessed, the single "Soul Sister" somehow became a radio hit in Bandung and Jakarta. That was when the comparison between them and The Datsuns, who had actually been their good friends, started. Then one afternoon, they were asked by producer of the movie Catatan Akhir Sekolah if their song could contribute for the soundtracks and would they Si Tu Gardes - The Young Gods - Hi-End Ultra X-Treme make an appearance in that movie.
And so Si Tu Gardes - The Young Gods - Hi-End Ultra X-Treme did. After that contribution, their fans grew rapidly; and not just in Bandung or Jakarta. Spills Records didn't renew their contract or they might dissolved and began to use social medias to spread themselves. With high-energy and passionate performances their profile began to rise rapidly through live shows. The label provided opportunities for them to perform outside their garage.
Not very long until people on the other side of the world caught their music. A year later, an Australian label Caveman! Recordssigned them as one of their acts. In which afterwards on JuneThe S. The band agreed and so they had Si Tu Gardes - The Young Gods - Hi-End Ultra X-Treme Australia tour in hand.
They were the first Indonesian band to have been brought to play in Australia by a label—it also became the first of many tours abroad. On their Australia tour, they played in many venues, and bars in Sydney, Brisbane, Perth, and Fremantle. Not even a chord. But they received positive reviews from many Australian publications, and listeners.
And even FasterLouderan Australian media, quoted on saying, " You get what you see and if you don't like it tough. After that successful first international appearances, The S. Unfortunately, the trip had to be cancelled because Acil's visa was rejected at the last minute. Despite of the ups and downs, the band kept on playing their music with huge energy and passion as their fan base grew daily. Incomplete - Guts - Eternal culmination point of this was in the music itself—they released their second EP: Hertz Dyslexia.
Heartz Dyslexia was a two-parted EP that was released separately in between and The first included a cover of the famous Neil Young 's " Only Love Can Break Your Heart " and the second one was released Various - Folc Vol. 1 on their website in Si Tu Gardes - The Young Gods - Hi-End Ultra X-Treme form of download code.
The concert was planned to be held at The Venue, Eldorado. A week before the celebratory concert, they had shows in Semarang and Yogyakarta. After each show the band would ask the fans if they would come to Bandung to attend the big show. For fans in other provinces there might be a problem because they have to buy the concert ticket, transport, and standard accommodations like hotel room—they didn't have that much money. They would have loved to and were willing to pay for the tickets but the money for other necessities was just not there.
After coming home from the Central Java tour, the band had a discussion with the event organizer and later decided to provide transportation; fans could buy tickets with shuttle bus fare included, which definitely is easier.
And the organizer extended invitations for fans from outside Bandung. This is a common thing for bands to do in the US or UK. The sold-out concert was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone attended.
More than three thousand people flocked from all over the country just to see what was destined to be a legendary concert. Even more significant considering that most of their latest gigs have been for free. Rekti also thought the gig was something else on an interview afterward, saying:. It is an overwhelming feeling. Hertz Dyslexia was a good example of the band only playing what they wanted to play.
The album was filled with rock music experiments, a bit different from what they have previously released. They moved a little away from traditional Led Zeppelin -style rock 'n' roll, and defined a new sound. Some of their fans will probably be surprised with the new material. On an interview with The Jakarta Post they said. It's pretty hard to describe, actually.
Even though songs on this album come from our early periods, the executions had become a new expression of our ideas," Rekti, the lead vocalist and a charismatic frontman, said and added by Farri saying, " Hertz Dyslexia is a rough outline for our second full-album. They have shown people they were strong enough to decide for themselves which musical direction they will take in the future.
Not many bands can bravely stand at the top of their careers, and choose to do the unpopular thing; to release an experimental album. Well, they have not changed that much, but still, a lot of people will be surprised by these Si Tu Gardes - The Young Gods - Hi-End Ultra X-Treme. They aimed at giving people something unpredictable, but not too confusing. They tried lots of new methods, and used many different instruments in the sessions.
This EP was a gateway to their second full-length album. Behind the scenes of their promotional sessions for Hertz Dyslexiathe band was working on material for their new album. But though, these lads are still pursuing their love of learning, formally, in school.
Farri studied at the same postgraduate The King - Count Basie And His Orchestra* - Count Basie And His Orchestra, majoring in Architecture. The other two members were the Jack Radics / Frankie Paul / Mafia & Fluxy - Wedding Plans Adit was studying for his joint degree, and Acil was a full-time architect.
By this period they were still playing in many local rock music festivals, and school events. But they were more focused to finishing their schools, and working on some new music. Detourn was released on Marchmore than six years since their critically acclaimed debut album, Visible Idea of Perfectionback in But still they were in the process of finishing the album. Also the band was working towards perfection. That helped to explain why the band had taken so long to finish their latest album.
For fans and the industry, the album was like a thirst-quencher—it was something had been awaiting for a very long time. Retail sales certainly point in that direction.
The production on The Cliftons - Sex, Drug & Alcohol album— which was a long process—comes across very well. They did a lot of sound explorations, flowing from one song to another, working on beats and few other things. Probably for some people, it will be quite hard to get this on the first hearing. This album was not as friendly to the ear as A Victory Of Love - Alphaville - Forever Young previous one, but this was The S.
And on the musical side, Rekti was given the opportunity to realize his long-held wish to have a flute and Irish whistle in "Son of Sam"; admittedly, not a common choice of instruments for a rock band. The band planned to do another release show, just like what they did once when they released Hertz Dyslexia.
