Snapshot - I Need Help

I know i have creative and insighful riders...(this is judging from the comments i received thus far)...although we haven't met but i somehow feel we are very closely connected (thanx to cyberspace)...

Ok...i would like to give my riders an opportunity that is hard to come by (so please dont be missed out on this kay...)...furthermore you maybe included in this project if you are the lucky one chosen...

You see...there is this new rock band that is GOING to be formed...hence they don't have a name yet...the lead singer (who is a close friend of mine) asked me for favour (i gladly accept) to mention this in BML to get my riders to suggest some names for their band...

So riders lets get on our bikes....

Any preference whether the name is in English or Malay?

Dear Bro,

Interesting thread you've started here. As a Rocker myself (although one without a band), i must try and give you a hand here.

In the mid 70s growing up in Singapore, we saw a mushrooming of rock banks. Groups like Sweet Charity were inspiring the locals, including the Malay Singaporeans, to try and become another Ramli Sarip.

In my neighbourhood in Jurong Town, my friend's friends assembled a quarted and called it The Black Coffin. I know the name's adverse and extreme, but Black Coffin made it into the finals of a local Batter of the Rock Band competition. I picked up a guitar, not quite sure whether I wanted to be George Harisson or Eric Clapton, but I realised later that my real talent was motorcycle riding.

Anyway, your thread brought back sweet memories. Maybe your friend want to call his band Black Coffee (instead of Coffin). Or Black Kopi, if you want to Malaysianize it. Lotsa people love coffee, y'know, so a name like that may stick. Like a lot of people are okay with Carbuerator Dung because they are know what a dung is.

Or why not get some inspiration from Harley? If your friend is fat, maybe his band could be called Fat Boy and the Boys? Hehe. Or Dyna-Sore. Or Street Rod Dogs (a play of word, as there is a Malay term "rodok", which means to stab with passion).

Ah, well, I told you I'm a rocker without a band. In fact, I never had a band. As for motorcycle riding, er .. I don't even own a bike now.

Good luck. Tell us where The Black Kopeks are playing, bro.

Girl Interrupted said...

EE

How I wish that am the creative one with lots if ideas, tapi penat dah cracking my head still can't come out with any name... sigh

Anonymous said...

1st, nak tau jugak band ni main muzik rock yang macamana? heavy or mellow? old school or new school? i think nak letak nama melayu pun nanti sound a bit funny, kalau letak nama omputih kang, orang kata tak patriotik pulak..

well.., dalam fikiran sekejap tadi terlintas nama SATRIA.., (hahaha..)
kalau dalam bahasa omputih pulak, HEROES.., amacam?

Anonymous said...

hye mr ee what kind of group band are they?? hard core, underground ke...

-clover-

Engku Emran said...

Hi guys...i can see some creative engine oil flowing already...to answer some of ur questions...i.e. yes it can be in malay or english (or mixture of both just as rocky suggested "Black Kopi") as long as it sounds cool and it is a rock n roll band (according to my friend)...btw "no-man's land" sounds pretty cool too...

Sham...yes we very much welcome that...get ur friend to contact Suby...our addy and phn number are in our website...

Girl interrupted...not to worry we will wait for ur idea...meantime put on a helmet so that ur head wont crack...same goes to the rest of my riders take ur time and keep those names coming kay...ride on!..

hi EE...

i think we shall need to ensure the name suits their image and concept. takkan nak kasi nama like "rindoo-band" to a heavy metal band kan? or "devil-say-tan" to an alternative rock band ke. mcm tak ngam je.

:) let us know their image then more will be throwing their ideas here, i believe.

Bond.Girl.007 said...

What's the music like? The stuff that I can come up with in a flash :

Crash Helmets

Beat Crusaders

Ordinary Heroes

Hi Engku,

How about Noble or Rockabilly?

Truly,
A fan

kaklynn said...

Hi Mr EE, just can't resist to join the club in naming the rock grup.

What about 'Boiling Bright' or Eastern Resistance!!!

I did take extra effort to find a single word if you think maybe of help!! the word 'ECLIPSE' - to make sb/something appear dull or unimportant.

The new band maybe known as D'ECLIPSE'. The name could pave way for the boys to move on!! What say you Mr EE??

Engku Emran said...

Hi kaklynn...lama tak tengok u ride...hehe nway the names are not for me to decide...the friend of mine will choose from all the suggestions in BML...btw that sounds very original to me...

Hi A Fan...Rockabilly is so cool dude!(if u r a dude that is)...

Keep on riding guys...u guys rock!...

This is actually very tough because it's a matter of personal opinion and taste.

However, I'd like to venture that it should be a name with three syllables, which is not necessarily more than one words ... like "Lefthanded".

Yes, it's true that one-syllable bands had made it BIG - Search and Wings come to mind. But I feel that a three-syllable name - and no more or less - sounds best.

Again, this is just MY personal preference, and nothing too `scientific' about this.

So, what names would I suggest? I dunno, really... But I'll give it a shot:

X-Sparky (taking a bit of a ride with Celcom's XPax) ... Siderockers (whatever that means - it doesn't have to mean anything, actually)

Salam Abg Emran...

Been following your blog closely , even though I'm not an avid rider(feel safer in my 4 wheel bella....hehehehe),its really cool what you have here.

When talking about rock music, it reminded me of the first time i listened to our local rock band Wing's ..I remember listening to it at your house in Sitiawan ( I'm trying to recall , I think it was Kak Su punye)...somehow that started my inclination towards rock music ....

So in passing the torch continuing the rock tradition, here are few names which I could come up with (idea came from being stuck in the traffic jam yesterday .....)

a) Potholes : Saw alot of those yesterday

b) Twenty inch : Looks nice on the hummer next to me

c) Schoolyard Madness : flashback ...for no reason hahahaha

others that came to mind....

1)The Statesman
2)Police Dolls

Hope to read more interesting thread in the future....keep it up
