Just a serious idea ...

I'm looking to form a pool of acoustic-electric singing-songwriting acts, for showcases and other gigs.

Can be solo, or band. Instruments can be a mix of acoustic and electric, but preferably no drums. Percussions are fine. This way, it's easier to do gigs almost anywhere, with easier set up and controlled volume.

Must be original material. No music or language boundaries, anything goes, so long as its your own stuff in the language of your choice.

More pix from VR1, For The Rawk Dawgs IV

Can you hear us, then? Sujesh (right) and Lohan.

Angry and snarling, that's Sujesh

You want me to what ...??? Yeah, Lohan on resonating slide guitar

Krishna on tabla ... serene

Yes, I know my bass looks big ... Kevin, always smiling.

A nice set, then ...

About our music

Gig: For The Rawk Dawgs IV
Date: Nov 8, 8.30
Venue: VR1 Cafe, Damansara Intan, Petaling Jaya
Entry: RM15

Someone asked me what sort of music we play .... well, a bit of this and a lot of that ... you might think we're a country band, and then you might think we're a psychedelic folk-pop band, and then again, you might think we're a fusion act or blues outfit. Any which way you try to label us, you're probably just one or two songs away - or removed - from the truth.

Our songs, all our own, are about the times we live in, and sometimes, times past ... irony, sardony, parody ... these are words we like!

Our guest set this Saturday will comprise five songs, one of them instrumental. At the time of writing, I've decided to plug my nylon-string guitar into a chorus pedal to mask the horrible ineptness of my playing. Lohan has decided to use an electric guitar for most of the songs because he "heard it calling in his head." Kevin will stick with acoustic bass, electrified (the bass, that is). Krishna's tabla, we will amplify beyond all proportion with microphones, for the gig (details below).

If you shout and sing with us, perhaps a good time will be had by all. Me, I'm looking forward to hear those rippling dawgs that come on after we're done and packed.
