RHETORIC STATES

ANTI-FLAG "THE GENERAL STRIKE" LIVE IN JAKARTA 2012

February 6, 2012

A punk band from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Anti-Flag is coming to Indonesia for the first time, in Jakarta to be exact. Their concert here is one of a series of tours "The General Strike" in Southeast Asia this year. Anti-Flag is one of the big and phenomenal band in the realm of punk rock, critical lyrics and protest against social and political issues is their trademarks, especially on the issue of U.S. involvement in Iraq.

A week before the event which run by Nu Prima Productions as the organizer and planned to be held at Senayan pool parking lot, we got a word from Teguh Dreaddaddy, of HAI magazine (Indonesia's teen magazine) that we were invited to perform at an event as a representative of HAI Demos (programs for the local bands). He said this without mentioning the event. It is rather strange that the event was also held at the same place and time as the Anti-Flag concert. Bang! Dumdurudumdum!!
It turns out that we were given the opportunity to perform at Anti-Flag concert! Wow, quite shocking cause at first all of us were planning to buy the pre sale ticket! Yeah! Dream come true!

Anti-Flag concert is also opened by one of Jakarta’s punk band that we admire! 'Quick N Easy' and this time we had the opportunity to share the stage with them! Raymond's of Quick N Easy, You're the best bro!

On the D-Day we arrived at the venue around 4 pm, and headed backstage to get ready to do sound check. Anti-Flag was already on stage doing a sound check. Anti-Flag’s bassist Chris #2 greeted us warmly when we passed the stage to the backstage. We talked for a while before they ended the sound check and returned to the hotel.

Finished sound check, Rhetoric States’ preparing and show time! Exactly at 7.30 pm we're up on stage to open the Anti-Flag’s show. Despite of drizzle since the evening, the crowds swarm at the entry gate to get inside the venue in order. There’s a slight of underestimation from the organizer to Rhetoric States when one of their staff give us an options by playing only 2 songs. Of course that pissed us off and one of our friends, Doni from Fast Crash reacted “are you fucking kidding ma’am? get real!”..
Then we start preparing the song list according the time duration given. Our song list that night among others ‘Bangkit dan Hancurkan’ (Rise and Destroy), ‘Against The Authority’, ‘Di Bawah UMR’ (Under Minimum Wage), ‘Paling Benar Sedunia’ (Righteous of The World), ‘Sampit’ and closed with ‘Pemuda’ (Youth).

Quick N Easy as a second liner before the main band. This Jakarta’s punk band playing most of their songs, one of them that already had a video clip was ‘Tak Kan Menyerah’ (Never Give Up) and a cover song from the Ramones; Blitzkrieg Bop'. The audience is getting heated up with a splash of spirit from this band. Awesome!

At 8:30 sharp, Anti-Flag came on stage. Full passion and energy, they open up the show with the song; 'The Press Corpse'. As already mentioned earlier in this writings that they were very critical about their government's policy, especially the foreign policy and the Iraq war campaign, the song "The Press Corpse" is one of them. The audience seemed familiar with many of the songs brought by them, such as: ‘One Trillion Dollars’, ‘Underground Network’, ‘Fuck Police Brutality’, ‘Drink Drank Punk’, ‘This Is The End (For You My Friend)’, ‘Turncoat’.

Anti-Flag is a great band, and that night it shows why. Their professionalism, with the stage’s condition, the organizers negligence and other crap didn’t get their guard down, passion at its top speed. Some problems occur on stage wasn’t a reason for them not to perform at their best.

Keep focused with the issues that mark them, before the song "Die For Your Government ', lead singer Justin Sane show support for the issue of punk in Aceh by saying "This is for the punks in Aceh".. and intensely followed by the crowds shouting "you've gotta die, gotta die, gotta die for your government? die for your country? that's shit!" and of course the venue were heating a lot hotter. Anti Flag close their concerts with the song encore cover of The Clash, "Should I Stay Or Should I Go".

Anti-Flag gave us a valuable lessons about hard work, professionalism, being humble, polite and friendly attitude even in the most grueling situation. The absence of crew, dressing rooms, a simple stage, and the fans, who packed in the artist tent, did not lose their spirit on and off stage. Yes, the punk energy had to be detonated so that the resistance would never be taken for granted and underestimated. For them, us and all of you, this fight will never end!

Chasing Infinity

Aspirations & Graduations (or: How Much Can We Milk This Song Title For All It's Worth?)

February 3, 2012

So. It's 2012. A year for all things wonderful, terrible, fantastical and disastrous, all at the same time. Or so they say.

For us here in ChinFin, 2012 is bringing about some changes. Both as a band, and as people. (Don't turn away yet! It isn't going to be one of THOSE blog posts...I don't think.)

First of all, guitarists Paul and Rob, and myself, will be graduating from university. Yep, that's right. No longer will we be students that get to live in ridiculously low-rent-yet-great-value property, sleep in till noon on a weekday and have an attic space in which to have band practice. Yes, very soon those days will be over. We'll be entering the next chapter of our adult lives. And hopefully that chapter will have just as much music, gigs and fun in it as this one has.

What will be next along our life paths? Who knows. All we do know is, we're working our (slightly nervous) fingers to the bone these next few months to make sure people really know what we're about. That is happy, dancey, pop-hooks. There, I just told you. But we want to really SHOW you.

That is why you guys can expect our OFFICIAL EP (no more bedroom demos, yaay!) THIS MARCH, 2012. Await the date please. This EP will showcase some of our best stuff to date, giving it the attention it deserves. Since our birth in late 2009, we've progressed significantly, in motivation, song-writing prowess, the blending and experimentation of different styles and of course, as a band dynamic. We aim to improve with every live show we do - maybe one day, just maybe, we'll get to play for longer than 40 minutes? Pretty please? At the moment we have enough material to fill a gut-busting double album. Our songs need homes. So by supporting us and promoting us to your friends, you can help make this happen!!!

2 and a half years have brought us a cumulative lineup of seven official members, and three session stand-ins. Even though our present lineup is down to four, we feel that now is the time we are really getting into our stride. We are coming along in leaps, bounds, skips, hops, jumps and crowd dives. NOW shit is really cookin'. As for our previous members, we thank them wholeheartedly for having been part of the ChinFin family. If it wasn't for those guys, maybe we'd be an even crappier band than we are now. Ha ha ha ha ha.

So that's it guys, look out for our EP during the month of March. Just as spring begins, fittingly ;) Make sure you 'like' us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter (links are on this page somewhere) to keep up with official dates, such as EP release AND of course, live shows! We have a couple on the horizon for you but nothing shall be revealed until it is all done and definite ;)

We'll be rockin' from here to graduation.

Adele.
