Singapore Heritage Society together with the The Post Museum is proud to present an afternoon of conversations, images and music by Koh Nguang How, Ivan Thomasz and Paddy Chng hosted by Lim Cheng Tju at The Post Museum 107-109 Rowell Road on 25 September 2010, 3pm.
BigO (Before I Get Old) magazine is Asia’s most respected rock magazine.
Established in September 1985, by brother Michael and Philip Cheah, the Singapore-based magazine has championed the creation and promotion
of made-in-Singapore music and has released many CDs of local music. The magazine began as a monochrome photocopied publication and moved to full colour in 1992. It is now an online publication with a huge worldwide audience.
This session, hosted by former Big-O journalist Lim Cheng Tju, features the rock visuals of Koh Nguang How, one of Singapore’s most important archivists/historians/researchers on Singapore art and pop culture. In his talk, Koh will share with us another aspect of Singapore heritage that many have ignored – our DIY/indie/alternative pop/underground music scene since the mid 1980s. Most of us have hazy memories of the gigs, the sweat and that ‘no surrender’ outlook that was only possible when you were young. The demo tapes from the late 1980s have crumbled to dust. But the sound and images remain in our heads and now, they will be brought back to light by Koh in this sharing.
Music from that those days of wine and roses will be provided by DJ Ivan Thomasz and a special live performance by Paddy Chng of the Oddfellows
will follow the talk & discussions.
