DOOMPH NEW YEAR EVE FREE MUSIC PARTY!




To DOOMPH! & Beyond. Press Release
The distinctive sound of DOOMPH! has conquered rooms, roofs and gardens. To DOOMPH! & Beyond sees us going to a bold new place we’ve never been to before. It’s New Year's Eve – It's time we played on the beach, Tanjong Beach Club that is. Patron XO Cafe is an extraordinary blend of ultra premium tequila and the pure, natural essence of the finest coffee, with a dry taste, not sweet as with conventional coffee liqueurs. The higher proof brings out the flavor of the pure coffee essense and the ultra premium tequila incomparable to any other.

To DOOMPH! & Beyond!, the second in a series of PATRON XO Cafe parties promises to deliver you an experience that will leave your feet tapping and your tongues flapping right into the next decade.

Let the rest of the town folk queue and clamber in claustrophobic confined spaces on the mainland. We welcome all to our very own private Idaho of a cove with space, time and stars for you to take the journey with us into the New Year, 2011.

Far from the maddening crowd we all will be with DOOMPH! residents Matty Wainwright and Brendon P. Allow yourself to be taken through all corners of the universe in a magical journey that will transcend space and time to provide hope, celebration and anticipation for the year ahead. Alongside fantastic beats, you’ll have the stars, the sand, the sea and a pristine pool to usher in 2011. Sometimes, the best things (and parties) in life really are for free.

Traversing into the unknown with us is the fabulous Starlight Alchemy bringing to you Live-Action Visual Treats with their unique performances of movements in fire and light.

The purveyors of all things pyro, this local flow arts collective use pois, staffs, hula hoops and other skill toys to mesmerize. Keep a watch for a Fire sculpture spectacle not to be missed.

Have your fortune told by Paul Pereira, tarrot card reader extraordinaire. What will the New Year bring?

Keeping with the DOOMPH! tradition, To Doomph! & Beyond is a free party with no cover, no dress codes and no fuss. "Dangerously Disco" "Dance At Your Own Risk"

Debut Album "我们是TKB" to be released soon from TKB (A New Rock Band in Town!)

A new rock band TBK will be releasing their debut album sponsored by various 
companies (QWISH.com, EARTHLING, TATTOO CRAFT). Its great to see
companies supporting music here in Singapore!

Information Credits Given To Derrick Tacttooman(TBK):

新加坡摇滚乐团-TKB

Debut Album soon!---- "我们是TKB"



It's a new lease of ROck elements/factors the band discovered through
hours of rehearsing and branding.

TKB是 Nicole,Kenny,Matt,Derrick.

TKB’s musical direction summons from an array of different influences and cohesively dedicated their strengths forming dynamic rhythm, raw power and suspending melodies.

TKB can be head-banging heavy, can appear convincingly dark, can affect depressively, can trigger energetic emotions, can sound awfully angsty..

Rock is an understatement.

The soon to release self titled album 我们是 TKB also reflects a truly Singapore produce.

As recited in our mandarin pledge "我们是..."

The little reds incorporated in the album front artwork is to remind of the growing music arts culture in ‘little red dot’ Singapore and wherever this piece of hard copy goes,it is to remind of this effort produced by Singaporean,printed in Singapore,recorded in Singapore- well within high fidelity industry standards.
We are TKB, although small like Singapore but is capable of outputting loud & rude good mannerisms for all genre to pay attention to.
All good musics must be put onto tape as music will live on eternally with today’s technology.

If you need some angsty headbanging solutions, TKB may well be your dose of energy to rough it out and scream along with!

Drop TKB a visit at FB official page and watch their Introduction teaser trailers & first official release to public,titled"-黑色相片".

TKB demands your attention,if music is a huge part of your life,TKB shall rock everyone ,in mandarin,in hokkien, in english & in music,the Universal language.

More of TKB can be seen & heard at

Swords Are Drawn with I Am David Sparkle - An Album Launch Concert - 3 Dec 10

I Am David Sparkle (instrumental, Post Rock, Shoegaze band)
will be launching their second full-length album release
launch "Swords" this coming 3 Dec 10.

Info. on the album is shown below:(Credits to Esplande):

I Am David Sparkle takes its name from a tongue-in-cheek anglicisation of popular '70s Malaysian disco king, M. Daud Kilau. Its music however, is an entirely different beast.

Presently consisting of Amran Khamis, Djohan Johari, Farizwan Fajari and Zahir Sanosi, the band is one of the pioneers of the instrumental post-rock scene in Singapore. Since its inception in 2001, it has garnered a strong underground following in Singapore and internationally with its music and emotionally charged live sets. To date, I Am David Sparkle has played tours and festivals in countries such as Malaysia, Philippines, Vietnam, Hong Kong and the United States.

2010 sees the band’s release of Swords, its second full-length album on the KittyWu Records imprint, and fifth release in total after their EP The Apocalypse of Your Heart [self-released in 2006, self-released], This is the New, Nosferatu Makes Me Nervous and the Live in Houston bootleg EP. This launch will be celebrated with local audiences before the band heads off on a series of tours to Indonesia and Malaysia to share the music from their new album regionally

Well I know u are probably still thinking if u should go?
Listen to their music and your heart will
tell u if their music deserves your attention below:
Music from previous "I AM DAVID SPARKLE" albums

Nosferatu Makes Me Nervous 7" vinyl single (April 2009)
