[SAR_094].The Spikeweed - Psycho Drama













Kalo inget dulu sebenernya nongton (NONGTON! Bujud dah udig beud udig!) The Spikeweed via acara koletifan yang bernama "Jakarta Metaphore" yang dimana acara itu juga dimotori oleh saya sendiri juga (CAPEK PEK PEK DEH!). Malam itu saya habis dibuat nostalgia dengan aroma punk Ramones yang intens saya dengar di kala-kala SMA!
Bisa dibilang cukup jarang juga bisa menemukan band macem The Spikeweed ini di saentaro scene lokalan. Bisa kalo diambil contoh mah cuma beberapa aja band lokalan yang aroma pop punk nya bisa dibilang underated seperti kalo dari Bali itu ada The Sneakers, lalu di Jogja ada The Frankenstone, lalu di Bandung ada The Almighty Saturday Night Karaoke, dan untungnya di Jakarta ada dua stoknya nih yaitu Billy The Kid dari Timur Jakarta dan The Spikeweed asal Selatan Jakarta.
Dan terima kasih saya ucapkan kepada Allah SWT, karena kayanya proyek ini tercipta gara-gara mungkin si Avoo, vokalis+guitar The Spikeweed, sering update kegalauan via FB beberapa tahun lalu :p (Wah nyolot! Udah sotoy ngajak ribut!). Secara lirik mah asli preng akan membuat anda terombang ambing di kegalauan drama percintaan kala SMA #Aih.
Wokeh ambil aja simpelnya, kalo anda doyan pop punk sebangsa The Queers, Screeching Weasels, Ramones, ampe rilisan2nya Mutant Pop Records, maka saya sarankan daripada kebanyakan mikir mari langsung aja luangkan bandwidth dan waktu anda untuk rilisan pop punk aduhai ini!

Remembering the past years the first time watching The Spikeweed live is via a  collective gig named "Jakarta Metaphore" which is also organized by myself. At that night, it was a notalgic moment where I was brought back into a high school moment, yea you know I was intensely listening Ramones in my high school time.
Could be said that its really hard to find such bands like The Spikeweed for the local scene. Lets take samples like The Sneakers from Bali, The Frankenstone from Jogja, and the almigthy Saturday Night Karaoke from Bandung, and the two Billy The Kids and The Spikeweed from Jakarta which bringing back pop punk tunes into its root.
And thankgod that the project itself could be successfully formed by the melancholy of Facebook status update of Avoo, guitar+vocal of The Spikeweed, few years ago. Lyrically this album would directly take you into a high school love drama. No bullshit :p
Lets say if you simply love kinda tunes like The Queers, Screeching Weasels, Ramones, to Mutant Pop Records releases, then this release is totally recomended for you. Please don't hesitate for downloading this stuff for free. Enjoy!
