Artist: AKA
Title: Do What You Like
Format: LP
Label: Granadilla Music
Country: Germany
Price: $27.00
"Reissued for the first time. AKA might have been one of the top acts of the Indonesian rock scene in the late 60s and early 70s. It does not necessarily mean that any international audience for heavy rock and psychedelic sounds would have noticed that back then, but we change that now. Do What You Like is a colorful album with a diversity of moods. Of course you find hard-driving, wild, grooving rock with simmering guitars and pumping rhythms. Go to the next song and some gentle, nearly ethereal dreamy psych-pop will alter your mind. Another step ahead on the tracklist and some easy and melodic 60s beat makes you want to dance the night away. The special factor of this album is the musical flavor of Indonesian pop that all of the songs sung in their native tongue show, while the few English tracks can compete against all of the popular hits from those days from American or European acts. AKA know how to heat you up with their psychedelic sound explosions and eruptive beats. They also know how to calm you down again and lay your soul to rest in a flow of gentle harmonies. Fans of 60s power pop with a regional feel presented by bands such as Omega from Hungary and of the 60s U.S. West Coast psych and pop scene will go crazy about this record." - Granadilla Music.

Title: Hard Beat
Format: Double LP
Label: Strawberry Rain
Country: USA
Price: $28.00
"First anthology from Indonesias heaviest psychedelic and progressive funk rock group. AKA featured on Now Agains Those Shocking Shaking Days compilation (2011). Originating from Indonesias second largest city, Surabaya, East Java, AKA is an acronym of Apotik Kali Asin. Starting off their careers as an infamous local band with notorious crowd pleasing antics, AKA regularly went through repertoires of Steppenwolf, Grand Funk Railroad, James Brown, Jimi Hendrix, Cream and Three Dog Night before finding a significant audience outside their home city. It was soon after that the band signed with a Jakarta based label, Indra Records that they started producing a steady release of albums, including 11 studio LPs and a couple of compilations. The lead singer Ucok Harahap - who famously idolizes James Brown- is perhaps the most notorious rock performer in Indonesias pop history, infamous for brandishing (amongst others) coffins, whips and stripping naked on stage during performances. Sadly due to recording English based, heavy psychedelic/progressive funk, AKAs music failed to gain popularity at the time of its release. Today, AKA is recognized as one of Indonesias top rock bands of all time, and for good reason. With this release, we are proud to offer an Anthology encompassing AKAs heaviest & funkiest moments."- Strawberry Rain.
