Editorial Reviews

The progressive music scenes in 1970s Indonesia were largely underground as a result of strict censorship imposed by the dictator Suharto. Those who performed music marked by relentless fuzz, over the top, politically charged lyrics, strong rhythms and a cranky low-fidelity were truly rebellious. And the resulting output has been largely outside of the confines of this island nation unheard or ignored. Indonesia, based in large part on the restrictions imposed by Suharto, is better known for the coffee it exports than the music it creates. This situation hasn't been remedied by the rough-hewn Indonesian bootlegs that dotted the psychedelic landscape over the past five years. Thanks now to the tireless and expensive research of Canadian hip hop producer and Southeast Asian music specialist Jason Moss Connoy - and the trust that Indonesian rock legend Benny Soebardja placed in Now-Again Records as he traversed his homeland's islands securing the rights necessary for us to offer you this anthology - we feel like we can, in good spirits and conscience, shine the light on some of the most impressive organizations to offer their take on the psychedelic and progressive rock and funk sounds during the early shocking, shaking days of Suharto's regime.

NowAgain Records pulled out all the stops on their compilation of Indonesian Heavy Psych Funk, Those Shocking Shaking Days. This 3 vinyl set contains a wide range of music in and around the above-mentioned styles that show the remarkable musicianship and creative energy that was happening in SE Asia in the 1970s. Having heard of none of these groups beforehand, I wasn't quite sure what I was in for... but was excited to dive in after reading the universal praise for this compilation on the web. This collection does not disappoint. Shark Move, AKA and the Black Brothers (all the rest as well) pile it on here and bring the psych/funk like no other. I guess one could compare this music to Black Sabbath with a bit of Can's Tago Mago and James Brown but the sounds here are unique to themselves. The compilers did a great job sequencing the songs for each disc... it has a great flow to it.

The vinyl is beautifully housed in a heavy triple gatefold sleeve that has images of the groups, record covers and records themselves and contains a beautiful book that provides background info on the songs and bands. A 5-star release all the way through. It is the kind of record set that makes one neglect the rest of one's collection.

Recommended? HELL YES.

After reading all the glowing reviews for this compilation I eventually relented and ordered it from Amazon (it's not the sort of CD I'm likely to find in the bins of CD shops where I live in Bangkok). Overall I like this CD a lot, although I'm not quite as awestruck as some of the other reviewers. I'm not some sort of picky audiophile so I don't mind the lack of "slick" sound quality on these dated recordings, all of which were most likely culled from vinyl records or perhaps even cassette tapes. So actually, considering the source material and the fact that these recordings are from 1970-78, the compilers did a great job of making these songs sound as good as they do on this CD.

The style of music on this CD is described in the booklet as "Indonesian Hard, Psychedelic, Progressive Rock and Funk" and that sums it up pretty well, although I really don't hear much that qualifies as "funk" in my musical dictionary. A few tracks sound a bit too derivative of other 70s-era Western bands (I'd swear one of them is, in fact, a cover, with the lyrics changed), but there also some really incredible tunes on here that would blow the minds of most fans of 70s psyche and hard rock, bursting with wicked, fuzzy guitar licks and propulsive keyboard work. My two favorite songs are "Evil War" by Shark Move and "Candle Light" by Benny Soebardja and Lizard. Not surprisingly, Soebardja was also the vocalist and guitarist in Shark Move. Clearly, this guy was one of the country's rock talents. I'd love to hear by him and his various bands.

Like one reviewer, I was puzzled why there are no songwriting credits on this CD.

Jimmy Paige has said of this collection that there is no longer any need to record any more music. With treasures such as these, there is plenty in the vault to explore and discover.
Indeed. Turns out the only place with bad music in the 70's was the US. The CD on offer here is a best of from a multi-disc package available elsewhere, so let's hope additional volumes are on their way. The tracks here show that the Indonesian musicians readily absorbed James Brown, Led Zeppelin, Delta Blues and spun it all in an intoxicating stew flavoured genuinely with their passion for music and rhythm.
Herein you'll find uniquely Indonesian takes on psychedelia, funk, rock-gamelan, and all of it is astoundingly magical. In the opening song there is a lyric "I love all music and melody," and clearly that is the guiding ethos. And for the record, want to know where Plant got that yelp? It's all here. The march toward 1980 would result in the gamelan structure of a renewed King Crimson and a world approach by Talking Heads and Peter Gabriel. The roots must have been not just in Fela but in this Malaysian curry. This is a great disc.

If someone had asked me a year ago what I imagined Indonesian rock from the 70s sounded like, I might have said something derogatory. It was only some of the insistent reviews here that made me suspect that here lay a musical goldmine waiting to be tapped. And I agree 100% with the others, I have tons of psych, prog and funk, so it was up against a lot of stiff competition in my music collection, but it was still love on first listen for me. In fact as the others have indicated, a lot of this music is far more interesting than that which their western counterparts were producing, and it has a pretty unique sound a bit different to anything you'll find in your music collection. I struggled to get the CD out of and back into the packaging, although attractively made, but I only needed to do that once as I then ripped it onto the harddrive. This collection made me realize just how valuable a 'Fuzz, Acid and Flowers' for Asian psych/prog/funk would be, one can only hope Vernon Joynson will take on the task some day.
