Studio Superman is Dead
Kuta Punk Rock Band Poised to Shake Up the American Music Scene During 35 Day Concert Tour.
Bali’s punk rock pioneers Superman is Dead (SID) are about to
embark on a major U.S.A. tour, spreading their unique style of Kuta
Rock on tour dates between June 2 – July 9, 2009. During those 35 days SID will perform some 18 concert gigs in 17 cities, including a multi-city segment with the legendary Vans Warped Tour, only the second Asian band to be invited to do so.
Playing together in one form or another since 1995, Bobby Kool (lead
vocals and guitar), Eka Rock (bass player and backing vocalist) and
Jerink (drummer) – the three men who comprise Superman is Dead
have more than paid their dues with minor indie labels and gigs at less
than salubrious dives before finally singing a record deal with Sony-BMG in 2003.
That hard fought negotiation with Sony-BMG
included the understanding that the band would be allowed to record
most of their numbers in English and also have complete control over
their own image. All this from a band who narrowly escaped the Bali
bombing of 2002 that took place only 75 meters from their Kuta base.
U.S.A. tour will allow audiences there to see first hand the musicians
who pack Bali’s music venues whenever they play and understand why the
band has won numerous music awards.
When asked to self-describe their musical style, the band says they are Punk-Rock-a-Bali a mixture of sounds inspired by U.S.A. punk legends NOFX (pronounced No Ef-Ex) and Social Distortion,
supersonically fueled with beer-soaked Balinese Rockabilly attitude.
Got it? That description alone should drive droves of punk rock devotee
to SIDs concerts or conversely serve as fair warning to others get out of town before these guys take the stage.
Proudly Balinese despite their firm embrace of cutting edge punk rock, SID
put on a powerful hyper-ventilated stage performance. Girls, and
perhaps not a few guys, are drawn to this trio of over-heated musicians
with tattooed chiseled physiques, on ready display once their shirts
get ditched as the concert cranks up. Accordingly, those expecting to
see three demure Balinese guys, all smiles and socially reticent are in
for a surprise: This band says what it wants to say, how it wants to
say it, and, to be more precise, what they have to say they do so
straight in your face.
Mothers of America, lock your daughters at home. These guys love their punk rock, cold beer and night-long partying.
