BRAGA STONE - KECAPI IN POP


Here's the super rare cassette from Braga Stone who's real name was Supeno. He used to play the kecapi (and sometimes slide guitar according to a good friend of mine who saw him perform in the 80's) on Braga Street in Bandung, he used to play a lot of Beatles and Rolling Stone songs hence the name Braga Stone.... This is one of the most sought after cassettes here in West-Java....

MELKY GOESLAW - TIMOR TIMUR



Posted a very bad copy of this one a long time ago, I finally found a perfect copy :) Many, many people looking for this ultra-rare album from Melky Guslaw (also spelled Goeslaw)with De Meicy, it's mostly just pop songs but there's this great psych/psych-pop/rock song on it, "Ombak, ombak, yang ganas". Happy I finally found a good copy!

And here's an article about Melky from Aktuil Magazine, December, 1975....

JATHILAN / JARANAN OJO SEMBRONO VOL. 1


I was talking with Arrington de Dionyso a few days ago, and how this was his favorite Indonesian cassette. Posted this ages ago, link was dead, so I recorded it again and yes, he's right, this is great stuff.... Trance music from Middle Java, we call it Kuda Lumping here in West Java, over there they call it Kudho Praseno, dancers dance to this music with a small wooden/bamboo horse in front of them and they'll go into a deep trance. I've seen it once at the Dieng Plateau, close to YogYakarta and there the dancers would strangle themselves with a whip till they would pass out, foaming at the mouth.... Here in West Java I've seen it a bunch of times, different kind of music, also deep trance music and here the dancers will change into different kind of animals, vomiting, eating glass, tearing coconuts apart with their teeth, you name it. I love these kind of shows :)
