Phew! Writing exams must be ergonomical suicide. My hand still hurts! Exams should be banned... or at least they could allow us to type them. Or maybe I just need to learn not to clasp the pen in despair! Incidentally, here's another death-themed one (chosen long ago). Malaysia's Ferns released one of the best albums of the year not long ago, on Fruit Records from Singapore who released Mocca's My Diary in 2002. (I just found out Mocca released a new album too, early this month, and three tracks are playing on their MySpace!) I really love Ferns' album On Botany although the sleeve is a bit too impractical (fake grass!). They remind me a lot of Majestic 12, and the singer sounds a bit like Scott's vocals on the Majestic records. I'm planning a radio programme with bands from Asia and other faraway places, and there will be more from Ferns. Thanks to Isman from Fruit who allowed me to post this. Cheers!
