Decapitated live in Bangkok

September 22, 2012

Decapitated

Decapitated live in Bangkok. They played at the Rock Pub, located right near the Ratchatewi Bts station. The gig was great, although Rafal (the singer) was not that happy about it.

Several incidents has happened during the bands existence that has not always been easy for them.  A few years ago, their tour bus crashed into another vehicle resulting in the death of Vitek, the bands drummer at the time. And also the brother of Vogg (the guitar player). Also at the same time, Kovan, the singer went into a coma. After a few years, I remember reading an article saying that he was recovering but it was still pretty bad. I talked to Rafal about it at the gig, and he said, he was still in a coma. Remember seeing some pics of it, it seems like though he has been awake sometimes though. Nevertheless it is pretty bad to say the least. Vogg, decided he wanted to continue with the band, despite the tragedy.

Last year, the band was coming home from a tour in the US, and the plane was about to land, but the landing wheels did not function properly, so the plane had to make an emergency landing, meaning, the plane had to land WITHOUT the wheels, and land on the planes belly. Luckily all the passengers survived.

A few weeks ago, the stiff (personal wise), but skillful drummer, Krimh (the dude with black hair in the background) left the band. The new drummer, that also played on this gig, is Vaders drummer Pawel Jaroszewics

Stay tuned, Cannibal Corpse is coming to Bangkok soon!

Jack Tammarat, guitar idol winner in London

March 15, 2010

A few months old news, but hey, it´s still worth mentioning.

Jack Tammarat, a Thai guitar player flew over to London to compete in Guitar Idol 2009, and he won. Congrats!

I stumbled upon this dude by accident on youtube, when i saw the live clip  from OVERTONE @ RCA, Bangkok. I thought it sounded really good, and realized he had sent this in as an entry track for the guitar idol competition. Was never into those competitions per se, but this time, it actually caught my attention. He sounded good. He still have things to work on, but his most famous song, “On the way”, sounds very professional indeed.

Buzzcocks coming to Bangkok

November 26, 2009

Not sure wether or not the punk rock scene is really that big over here, but nevertheless, Buzzcocks are coming to Bangkok. They are playing at the Club Culture on Saturday. Entrance 800 THB at the door (including a drink).

I have honestly never heard of them, but  i must admit i am not a huge punk rock fan, but i do think the Sex Pistols were kinda cool.

Anyway, be there! (or hmmm, don´t be there.)

concert, bangkok, gobo, thailand, buzzcocks
