Bandung rock-band CJ1000 talk debut album, psychedelic influence and breaking out of their non-existent campus scene.
On July 15, vitamin-drink-sounding Bandung, West Java, punk/rock/metal group CJ1000 released their debut studio-album Midnight Ambush after putting off its release for almost a full year. Although the album only received a couple of lukewarm reviews, Midnight Ambush is undoubtedly a solid rock record with a just amount of dyed-in-the-wool foolhardiness (barring some awkwardly timed bridge tracks). It shows plenty of promise.
The music and the writings might come across, sometimes, as a bit goofy — if in a positive way. In one song, band lyricist and vocalist Muhammad Fardlan Hakim sings about walking home after school across a military compound with a bagged drink and crisps bought for Rp 1,000 (US$0.06).
