MUP & Friends - Bintulu Gig Empire, Bintulu Bike Week 2018


Jumaat (5/10/2018) - Malam pertama Bintulu Gig Empire bersempena Bintulu Bike Week 2018. Persembahan MUP dijadualkan slot kedua sekitar 8.25 malam, slot pertama dijadualkan sekitar 8.00 malam, tapi sehingga 8.30 masih masih belum bermula. Walaupun hiatus paternity sudah selesai, tetapi tiket untuk keluar malam agak terhad. Bila-bila masa boleh jadi Cinderella.

Susunan backline pentas yang masih klasik.
Seperti yang dikatakan dalam entri sessi latihan, MUP merekrut dua ahli iaitu Asri Copkids (bass) dan Jawank (gitar), beberapa hari sebelum hari kejadian kerana masalah line-up, terutama untuk menggantikan Azrul yang sedang tour bersama-sama Larrong.


Dan disebabkan masa latihan yang terhad, MUP mengambil keputusan hanya memainkan lagu-lagu cover "playsafe" seperti Kabus, 2 Minutes To Midnight, The Trooper dan Wasted Years. Lagu original MUP Pentagram Di Atas Pusara terpaksa disingkirkan daripada setlist.


Seperti biasa, untuk gig yang tidak banyak memerlukan pertukaran bunyi, rig aku antara yang seringkas mungkin - Neon, wireless Takstar dan MS-50G. Aku tiada gambar-gambar menarik mahupun video, hanya harapkan apa yang dikongsi oleh rakan-rakan dalam grup WhatsApp sahaja untuk dijadikan bahan entri.


Masalah stage monitor sedikit sebanyak membuatkan persembahan menjadi kelam-kabut dan tidak konsisten. Ini kali pertama persembahan pentas MUP terhenti seketika (semasa 2MTM) disebabkan drummer dan bassist ke laut, sesat dalam gabungan (lost in the mix).


Selesai persembahan aku tidak sempat untuk berada lama di area pentas, kerana telah menerima "panggilan pulau" menyuruh balik seawal mungkin untuk menjaga anak. Antara lumrah yang harus diterima dan dilalui.


Post-mortem BGE-BBW2018:
  1. Tiada power outlet/extension disediakan di hadapan pentas (sama seperti BOTB Sebauh), terpaksa tarik dari belakang (area amp). Sedikit-sebanyak menyukarkan spesies frontman yang main instrument seperti aku.
  2. tidak berapa serius menyediakan stage monitor dan lebih mementingkan FOH. Serius, stage monitor adalah medium untuk ahli band berkomunikasi
  3. Tiada sistem ventilasi (kipas siling/lantai) di atas pentas, bahang panas jelas terasa.
  4. Sistem wireless murahan Takstar berkhidmat cemerlang.
  5. Walaupun baru kenal beberapa minggu, tetapi keserasian dan persembahan Jawank memang di luar jangkaan, berkebarangkalian akan menjadi ahli tetap MUP selepas ini.
Kadang-kadang teringin juga untuk lari daripada cliche Iron Maiden cover band...

Kebanyakkannya merapu mengenai hobi-hobi aku - guitar/bass related stuff, jamming, gig/concert, eBay stuff, collections, metal/rock music, CD/DVD, PC games, anime dan sedikit pasal kehidupan dan kerjaya aku di Bandar Bangau (Bintulu) ni... Dengan menggunakan bahasa rojak dan tatabahasa yang kadang-kadang tidak menepati spesifikasi Dewan Bahasa Dan Pustaka.
