Just needed to say a few words about I Hate This Place‘s gig at Hood Bar on Saturday, 22nd September. This was the first gig I had arranged for IHTP and I must say that I thoroughly enjoyed their set. Probably due to the F1 weekend, the attendance was not as encouraging as it could have been but them’s the breaks.
The Fast Colors really started as a bit of a lark amongst the three founding members – Chris Toh, Pat Chng and yours truly – a vehicle for the trio of us to indulge in our classic rock fantasies. Also as a bit of an experiment to see if indeed cover bands have more fun in Singapore. Somehow someway the band has evolved into a 90s Singapore indie tribute band! Our last three gigs had seen us presented as some kind of standard bearer for Singapore original music, despite being in essence, a cover band. Go figure, eh?
