In many ways, the upcoming Mannequins EP launch show is a throwback to the recent past, a relic from a different age.
I remember a decade ago, Singapore rock shows were a big bang for your buck, when the rock fan would get a multitude of bands playing throughout a day – from noon to midnight.
The music on display would be eclectic – within the range of rock music – and everyone had fun, whatever the genre. It was edgy and it was underground.
Times have changed of course and idiots now scoff at the very idea of Singapore rock, as if it was some kind of dinosaur to be put down.
Thank GOD for Mannequins then! The quartet will be launching their excellent EP – Four – tomorrow with SIX other rocking outfits to remind us all that Singapore music isn’t just smooth urban electro-soul and indie (shoegaze) pop. To remind us that Singapore rocks!
All the pertinent information is in the image above. See you there!
… still there’s more …
