HIGH VOLTAGE at Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS... again!

I actually have a band in UTP, called HIGH VOLTAGE. Although, last time we practice was probably a year ago. True to its name, we are an AC/DC worship band focusing on the Bon Scott era. 

Last Sunday, I received an email from one of the organizing committee of Euphonious to perform as an invited band for the event this year. Euphonius is an annual UTP Battle of the Band. Guess what, the performance is on Friday (13th June). That gives us about 5 days to do everything!

So there goes sms, whatsapp, emails and so on to call the boys back in. Not that we really want to play but because the performance will be held in the Chancellor Hall (which is basically the Madison Square Garden, Perak branch), there is no other option but to play.

But again, we got only about 3 or 4 times to practice. The first practice was last Monday. Imagine after so long of not playing, we met again as a band that night to play. One dude got confused with the song, another cannot remember which part is which, another getting bored, another playing facebook and so on. In conclusion, we were lost!

What do you mean we are playing that song??? We have never discussed about playing that song! ^*@#*)(@*$&#)

Errrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.....

He was actually trying to hide his tears of trying to memorize the lyrics. Serve you right!

What chord again? Hmmmm?

That's right brother, you get bored you go to facebook IN THE MIDDLE OF A REHEARSAL!

This pose is not really rock n roll la wehhh...
 After practicing, there was one of the UTP band competing rehearsing at the same place. The difference was like langit dan bumi. The vocal was good, the drums, powerful and the guitar shreds.

The second practice, although improving but not much difference from the day before. Now I wonder whether accepting the invitation was a right decision.

Anyway, we will be playing these songs. Selected because of the riot-ness of the chorus. Chorus-riot means, the chorus will get stuck in your head in just two rounds of listening to the songs. 

1. Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap
2. Rock N Roll Damnation
3. If You Want Blood (You've Got It)

Once you are done memorizing the chorus, you need then to sing-a-long, OK?

We are expecting the worse on Friday. But if you are in a rock band, you don't really care because what you really need is a HIGH VOLTAGE rock n roll! 

See you on Friday!
