Disagree - To Prevent The Earth From Moving With You

To Prevent The Earth From Moving With You is Disagree‘s second album. Their first being At The End Of The Day, released way back in the year 2004.

Remember the song Crumbs? Well, that was the song that kinda made the band famous but my favorite song from that album was in fact Angels’s Orchestra, a 7 minute powerhouse with double pedals kicking it off at the ending (still playing it occasionally up to today).

Baybeats 2009 was held at the Esplanade at Singapore over the Merdeka weekend (August 28th – 30th). I managed to get down there to check it out, all 3 days of it.

Well, the first thing I was glad about is that the Singaporean crowd was awesome. Bands after bands, they were supporting them and mosh pits were always there in the Powerhouse stage. For the first night, I managed to arrive just as Estranged started playing and there were a lot of people singing to Estranged songs. To top it all off, Rich started Aurora with an acoustic guitar before the rest of the guys joined in with full force.

The timing for the stages was quite good as they allowed 30 minutes for each band to setup after the previous band performed. This of course, overlapped with the other stages and people could go to another stage to catch another performer while waiting for their favorite act to setup.


My Dunks, after Baybeats

Here’s what you get wearing a black Nike Dunk into the moshpit during Baybeats 2009 at Singapore. No, it is not mud, just some dust and sand from the gravel mosh pit.

MTV World Stage Malaysia was held in the Sunway Lagoon surf p0ol on the 15th of August 2009. I was there before the event started and the lines for the mosh pit started as early as 3pm and by 4pm the lines were extending all the way to the Sunway Pyramid entrance.




The lines for the Red Zone at the Sunway Lagoon entrance was also insanely long (as mentioned to me by the security personnel there), but I wasn’t there to take photographs of the queues.
