Singapore Music Gallery
Holy Grails of Singapore music from the late '60s-early '80s before the indie explosion. From top left clockwise: The Heritage LP, Class Acts compilation, Zircon Lounge LP (all above 3 from WEA), and lastly, the Quests seminal "33rd Revolution" on Columbia/EMI.
The Oddfellows CDs. From top left clockwise: Teenage Head, Carnival, So Happy and Bugs and Hisses.
Humpback Oak CDs. From top left clockwise: Oaksongs (333/500), Pain-Stained Morning 1994 Pony Canyon edition, Pain-Stained Morning Shock Records (Australia) edition, SideA SideB, Ghostfather.
New School Rock compilations from BigO.
The Observatory Collection.
Other projects by Leslie Low. From top clockwise: Lucifuguous LP w/ Vivian and X-Ho, Longing debut LP, No Such Thing as Ghosts LP, Worm CD, Volcanoes CD, Magus CD, the very excellent Arcn Templ CD and the Pan Gu LP.
Many of the compilations from the '90s. Some of the most notable are top left "Electroplasm", top right "Red Hot & Skin", and bottom right "Lion City Hardcore".
Lost black/death metal 12" vinyls. From top left clockwise: Impiety- Skullfucking Armageddon Picture Disc limited to 100 and signed, Abhorer/Necrophile split, Stukas demo compilation and Libation/Itnos split.
Lost black/death/hardcore 7" vinyls. From top left clockwise: Impiety/Sarcofago split (2/130! Signed), Libation demo reissue, Abhorer EP, Itnos C.M.B. (444/500!), Opposition Party, Impiety Salve the Goat (signed), Mutation (signed), War Torn Nation/EVOL split.
New LPs that are excellent in my opinion. From top left clockwise: Piblokto LP, Yumi LP, One Man Nation LP (bizzaro) and The Psalms LP.
Modern Singaporean indie classics (although seemingly dated now) from the late '90s to early '00s that didn't seem to fit in the "Rockinthefinecity" timeline. From top left clockwise: Sherene's Closet, Livonia, B-Quartet, Serenade, Ronin and Plain Sunset.
This is the "miscellaneous" part of the collection. OK what I've found: Wah Lau Gang (this is like the "other" Kopi Kat Klan.. same Singlish comedy parody, etc), Ken Lim- Empyrean (you remember that grouchy judge from Singapore Idol who always criticize the contestants? now it's your turn for poetic justice) and lastly.. Yeow! "What I Require"!... omg. Ex-Zircon Lounge guy doing his Alex To posturing on the cover. This is a signed copy. Unfortunately, I do not have the Starfish n Coffee CD to complete this part of the collection anymore.
