Happy New Year 2017! I made a bunch of New Year’s greetings – one from Naoko and Zen and I, one from myself, one from each of my bands.

MegalomaniA!!

Sunday, August 7th, 2016

My band MegalomaniA recorded an album, actually a 6-song EP. These are the songs.

  1. Psycho Blaster
  2. Spinal Reconstruction Blues
  3. Demon Fate
  4. Escape The World
  5. Butterfly Wheel
  6. The Wurdalak

I sing on all the songs except “Escape The World” (our guitarist Faz sings on that one). That song also has a guest guitar solo from Dhalif Ali.

My friend Kevin Mathews wrote a preview piece for the CD launch in Singapore’s TODAY newspaper, “MegalomaniA flies the metal flag with debut EP Escape The World“. Thanks, Kevin!!

You can buy the CD in Singapore from Hear Records, Inokii Records, Memory Lane, or Roxy Records & Trading. It’s available for download from MegalomaniA’s Bandcamp page.

Here’s the video for our song “The Wurdalak”.

We made a trailer for the album:

Actually, we made two trailers!!

We even made a video for the first single, the title track “Escape The World” (which is also available for download from MegalomaniA’s Bandcamp page).

We released the album on August 6th. That day we also did an interview on SOFT TV. There’s no embeddable video for that, but it can be found on the SOFT TV Singer Songwriter Series Facebook page.

We had an album launch at the Crazy Elephant that evening, here’s some video from the event!!

Here are some pictures of the festivities!!

MegalomaniA gig, with Dave Hale!

Sunday, June 5th, 2016

Our drummer Val was back in town, so we organised a gig at the wonderful Sportsman bar over beers. A few days before that I found out that my ex-neighbour Dave Hale from the time we lived in Japan would be in town, so he came to the gig! ALL RIGHT!!

This turned out to be the first of only three gigs MegalomaniA played in 2016.
