It's good to hear that everyone has been concerned with our "sudden" disbandment. It's
actually not too sudden for us. We had it coming.
To be honest, the band has been trying to stay afloat for the past 6 months. I, personally,
have been carrying emotional baggage from the departure of all the narda members who
withdrew from the fight through the years. I'm sure, K2 feels much the same. With every
new member that came in, I had to teach him all the songs. Aside from this, we had to jam
as a band as well. Just imagine how many times I taught "Molotov" to sessionists and
aspiring keyboardists and drummers for the past two years... probably more than 30
Then we had all these questions going through our minds: "Why can't we move on? Why
couldn't we gain momentum? Why aren't we getting the right breaks?" The questions just
kept on weighing us down.
But it's good that you guys have been part of this egroup. All your words of
encouragement have helped us a lot. Though I may not have been the most active lister, I
have read all your messages and have managed this egroup since the beginning. You
guys have helped us cope with all the stress and saw us through by pointing out what was
good about our music. For this, I'd like to thank everyone.
And of course after all the frustrations, we've grown tired. We're tired of having to find
manpower for the band. We're tired of the bad breaks we've had. We're tired of bearing
the name of a household pop song, whose reputation precedes us. we just wanted to end
things before we tire ourselves from each other.
The Chinese say this is a good year to try something new. Who knows, by doing this we
might be really trying something new?
So I advise everyone in this egroup to fully support any artist while they are still active in
the circuit. Go to their gigs, write to them, interact with them, buy their cds, have them
sign stuff, spread the love to your friends, share the music, invite them to play for your
school, all the good **** you can give them...just do it...while they're still there.
Thanks for the support and I hope you guys will continue to support us in whatever
projects we might go into in the future.
