Non Sequitur: Singa-Scene

Radio Station Forgot to Play My Favourite Song (2003)

A 23-minute documentary on the contemporary rock music scene in Singapore. It features commentary from and footage of renowned DJs, music critics, industry bigwigs, producers and musicians.


It has always been an age old debate about (1) the helpless history of rock & roll stigma vs. nation building sanitization, (2) the I-don't-care-about-you-but-your-local=bad-perception matters, and when you sprinkle a little economics on it, (3) the issue of critical mass.

Well, thank gawd for My/Yours/TheirsSpace and the current spectacle on national television; we can write our own history and change people's views weekly while still scratching our head figuring out a business model.

The place I call home but the 'kampong mat malay' bass still needs to be delivered. Talking about delivering and still on the home scene, here's a shout out to I Am David Sparkle for overcoming the challenges and will be rocking out at SXSW in a few days time.

We are still young!
