Singapore-based punk rockers to perform at China One

3 July 2013 / 3 years 3 months ago

Singapore-based Pug Jelly weren’t your typical band on the local scene a decade ago.The punk rockers, made up of two Australian brothers and a Japanese friend, even received flak for being considered a local band and being nominated Favourite Singapore Artiste at the MTV Asia Awards 2005.But the band went on to gain a strong following, topping the radio charts here, and earned themselves a distribution deal with Universal Music Singapore.Then, in 2005, they split, and the members took up various music projects, before finally coming together again and re-naming themselves The Dirt Radicals in 2010.The trio ‘“ comprising bassist-vocalist Sam Cooper, drummer Matt Cooper and guitarist Masashi Kimura ‘“ are now based in London and will be performing in Singapore tonight, at China One.They are promoting the band’s second album Enter Destroyer, the follow-up to I’ve Got A Rad Feelin’ About This! (2010).Released last week, the new album pretty much sums up what the band had gone through in the last few years.More in LOUD in The New Paper on Tuesday (July 2).
