Our buddy Little Ong from fFurious took some pictures of us. It was a riot. Probability dictates that at least one in four will pull a moronic face not fit for viewing. These two are the better ones. We had these taken on Record Store Day. No real significance. Some of use were going to be at Vinylicious so it’s really out of convenience. This is a back alley on Mount Emily. We could smell urine the entire time.
I love múm and caught them in concert at the Esplanade in early 2008. But god, I never thought we could open for Wavves. I mean, it’s just one of those bands always on my iPhone. No one knows this, except maybe Patrick Chng who mixed our LP: ‘Take On The Word’ was the mixing reference for ‘It’s Always Summer’.

No question about it. Our latest show ever. Come for the after-after-party where Shelves will be closing. We start probably 2:30am. Or 3am. Or… it doesn’t matter beyond a point. It’s also our first gig with Daryl. We will play a good mix of album tracks and some off our coming EP. Also, a brand new song never-before-played-live. Expect raucous behaviour, weeping men, and broken hearts.
The audience may do better.
What kind of music gets you most excited?
80’s sleaze and psychedelic rock mostly. But I’m a sucker for anything with sweet vocal harmonies and catchy melodic lines.
How did you first hear about Shelves?
Was asking Uncle Seah, from Roxy Records, if there were any new local records in store and he pointed me in the direction of Shelves debut LP.
Can you build a shelf?
With a couple wooden planks, hammer, and nails, I’m guessing I’d be able to put one together.
Found this while clearing my hard drive. A list of potential band names, from which we picked… you know which we picked:
Wear & Tear
Oh No, Not You
This Old Man
He Played One
Super Just Super
Took us/me a while. But it’s finally do-able. Only $9.99 and it comes with the album too. Buy here.
Mel has left the band. Please share this post.

Nice close to the year. After an unbearably long and unsuccessful soundcheck, we had excellent bak chor mee at Boat Quay. Sat there for about two hours discussing Stephen Chow, Robotech, Kurt Russell, muscle cars and the movie Cobra. Caught a bit of Neverland resident band cover Muse on key-tar before we were treated to an hour of impromptu audience break-dancing. Of course, Shelves would later clear the dance floor.
Happy New Year!
