Secara jujurnya aku baru kenal band ini semasa menyaksikan konsert Rock The World 9 hari sabtu lepas. Pertama kali dengar aku dah suka dengan kumpulan ni. Tak tahulah kenapa tapi muzik dan lirik diorang boleh masuk kat telinga aku yang besar nih. “Nama saya SAM, aku ni sorang yang agak malang tapi xpa, nasib baiklah ada muzik dalam hidup saya. Peace…” ini moto diorang yang sangat unik dan mungkin SAM ada maksud tersirat dalam ayat tu, aku tak pastilah apa yang tersiratnya kalau nak tahu tanya dia sendiri.
About SAM KUMAN
Sam is a bacteria(kuman) who writes, produces and arranges his music on the 9th floor of some unknown building in Puchong infested with rats and other irritating bacterias.
He arranges the drums and plays the bass, guitar and keyboards for his music recording and then sends his songs to be mixed by his neighbor, Tan Chee Meng ‘Godfather Producer of Jalan Puchong’.
Sam lives with a mosquitoe called Cik Nuar and recently he got a new housemate, ‘the handsome cockroach’ who works in PJ and his songs are mostly about his everyday life experiences as a bacteria sung in English and Bahasa Malaysia.
His first Malay single ‘Aku Seekor Kuman’ hit local radio stations (X FM and Hot FM) and received a fair amount of airplay in the middle of 2008. Few months later, his first English single ‘Crazy’ received ok ok rotation on Fly FM, Hitz.FM and X FM and that song was also nominated for Best Pop Song for the VIMA awards(a music award for independent artists from all over Asia).
Now his follow up Malay single called ‘Pergi Buat Selamanya’ is also receiving ok ok rotation on Era Fm, Hot Fm and X FM.
Sam is a solo singer-songwriter but for shows, he performs with a live band to deliver the pop rock energy of his songs. The line up consists of Nan ‘Kuman Kering’ on drums, Tom ‘Kuman Tiang Elektrik’ on guitars, Juad ‘Kuman Mohawk’ on bass, Abang As ‘Kuman Taiko’ on guitars, Boy ‘Kuman Black Parang’ on drums, Merlvyn ‘Kuman Dream Machino’ on guitars and Tan Chee Meng ‘Kuman Fengtau’ on guitars/bass.
Sam’s friend Johanna Misai helps out by capturing shots for music video and also during his band’s live performance but now he sombong already because he works in NTV7 now…hehe…just kidding. The other official videographer is also Faiz ‘The Weed Tokan’.
Although he is considered new and remains relatively unknown to the music scene he has more new, interesting songs and music videos coming soon. He might release a full length album at the end of the year if the myspace kuman fans wants him to and if there is an ok ok response towards his music from the local music community. If not he’ll still make music, only without an album 🙂
