It's been a while, I have been away from KL for months now and re-visiting in January. Not much of a KL Mosher now, but a KL Mosher in heart anyway.
I have been communicating with friends from the music scene back in Malaysia to update on what's been going on gig-wise and generally the movement and progress of the music scene. And to be fair, after all that I have heard; not much is going on.
It seems like the scene left with me. All the gigs seem to have lessened, the bands have dissipated, the gigs are all monotonous and generally uninteresting. When I was back in KL, we had local gigs that were the hype of the month, the must-go. Now it seems like the only ones people look forward to are the international bands coming over to Malaysia.
Aside from Shock & Awe launch parties and the usual Laundry nights, what exactly have the music scene been doing to progress itself? It seems like many of my friends have said "I haven't been to a gig for a long time" which to me, is a definition of "There is nothing worth going to."
I was hoping to see the scene sparkle from far and hear of it growing and better itself whilst I'm gone, but I don't think that will ever happen.
I wonder what it will be like when I go back in January.
