As curators for the whole RRRec Fest #3, The Secret Agents is providing their own monthly stage, “SUPERBAD!”, to be rocked on by 4 bands of the festival. Beside collaborating with Anoa Records in showcasing 2 of the most promising new talents in the scene (under its label), Barefood and Seaside, The Secret Agents is also very proud to be once again presenting Sigmun (already a regular act of “SUPERBAD!”) and Seek Six Sick (this time with a different formation) for the RRRec Fest #3 crowd. These four bands of day 2 have each their own colours and style, yet they all have one thing in common: that is strong characteristics. Whether it’s sweet and introverted or powerful and hypnotizing, the amount of each of the band member’s gusto will create a kind of atmospheric warmth through out the venue.

Kita tidak akan pernah kehabisan talenta-talenta lokal nan aduhai di bidang musik. Kali ini mampir di panggung kecil “SUPERBAD!” di The Jaya Pub, anak-anak muda asal kampus kesenian Jogja bernama Auretté and The Polska Seeking Carnival yang akan membawakan racikan musik pop berbalut irama polka. Kejutan lain adalah datangnya salah satu band elektro pop terbaik di Asia Tenggara, Tenderfist dari negeri seberang, Malaysia. Turut tampil memeriahkan edisi ke 54 ini adalah Protocol Afro yang akan membawakan nomor-nomor terbarunya yang lebih segar dan bergoyang.

Jangan lewatkan kesempatan langka menonton penampilan band-band keren ini di panggung kecil Jaya Pub, tentunya dalam suasana yang intim dan hangat.

We will never run out of brilliant local talents in the music department. This time, one of the “visitors” of our tiny “SUPERBAD!” stage in Jaya Pub are young folks from the art school in Jogja called Auretté and The Polska Seeking Carnival, playing indie pop wrapped up with polka beats. Another sweet surprise this time is one of the best electro pop acts in South East Asia, Tenderfist from Malaysia. Lastly, also playing on this 54th edition, is Protocol Afro (Jakarta), ready to perform their latest extra fresh and swinging tunes.

“SUPERBAD!” Vol. 53: “OKE, LET’S GO!”

Sunday, 15 Sep 2013
8 pm – 1 am
at
The Jaya Pub,
Gd. Jaya parking area, Jl. M.H. Thamrin Kav. 1-2,
Jakarta Pusat (Right across Hotel Sari Pacific)

Kami seringkali menerima telfon, pesan singkat dan juga e-mail dari band-band yang berasal dari segala penjuru, baik dalam kota, luar kota, maupun luar negeri. Dari kiriman-kiriman ini, kami mendapatkan banyak profil band beserta lagu, demo, download link dan bahkan rilisan fisik. Sebagian besar band-band yang tampil di “SUPERBAD!” kami dapatkan infonya dari proses kiriman-kiriman ini. Begitu juga dalam Vol. 53 ini.

Kira-kira satu bulan lalu, kami mendapat email dari seorang kawan di Surabaya yang mengabarkan bahwa ada dua band baru dari kotanya, COTSWOLDS dan TAMAN NADA, yang selepas merilis EP akan menjalani tur ke 10 kota di Pulau Jawa, dan Jakarta termasuk salah satunya. Sontak tanpa pikir panjang, kami menyatakan kesediaan “SUPERBAD!” untuk menjadi salah satu gig yang turut mendukung tur ini sebagai venue di Jakarta.
Demi melengkapi line-up ‘SUPERBAD!” yang biasanya menampilkan 3 hingga 4 band, kami mencoba mencari 2 band lagi yang kami anggap pas untuk tampil bersama dengan 2 band dari Surabaya ini. Kami menelusuri lagi inbox email dan database kami yang memuat data profil band berikut lagu-lagunya, hingga akhirnya menemukan dua band dengan gelora baru untuk “membunyikan” dirinya lewat cara bersenang-senang. Kedua band ini, yang kami undang untuk melengkapi line-up “SUPERBAD!” Vol. 53 adalah MUCHOS LIBRE dan STRANGE FRUIT.

Mereka-mereka yang baru dan bergairah itu adalah:

We often receive phone calls, instant messages, and e – mails from bands from all around the country, both in and outside the city, as well as from abroad. From these submissions, we get a lot of band profiles; along with one or two songs, a demo , download links, and even actual (mini) album releases (CDs). A lot of the bands that have performed in “Superbad!” got the gig from this submission process. Like in this Vol . 53…

Approximately a month ago , we got an email from a friend in Surabaya whom reported that there were two new bands there, namely COTSWOLDS and TAMAN NADA,, that after the release of their EPs will be on tour to 10 cities in Java, including Jakarta. Right there and then, without hassling too much on details, we expressed our willingness to be one of the gigs that would support this tour in Jakarta .

To complete the line – up for “Superbad!” this month , we  tried to find 2 more bands that we would deem fit to perform with the bands from Surabaya. Again, we traced the email inbox and our database, containing datas of band profiles and songs; until we finally found another two bands, with fresh gusto in sound, that are making music for a way of having fun! These 2 bands are MUCHOS LIBRE and STRANGE FRUIT.

So, here’s the line-up of new and energetic bands for Vol. 53:

COTSWOLDS (Surabaya)
(shoegaze / postpunk)
Windrata Faizal (vocal/guitar) – Dwiki Putra (guitar) – Wing Wisesa (bass) – Farras Fauzi(drum)
