unheared band "9 Matahari (Nine Suns)"

According to the up-and-coming band who call themselves 9 Matahari (Nine Suns in English), not everything can go exactly as planned. For Yogie (guitar and keyboard), Endra (vocalist), Fajar (bass), and Bojo (drummer), their first album was actually quite far from what they were expecting. Endra said, ìWhen it came to the mixing part, we didnít quite find the sound that we wanted, but itís okay, I mean what more can we do?îIs it because Andre -- Stinky's frontman -- was the producer? ìNo, Andre never told us what to do with the music stuff, he left that to us. He just took care of the technical aspects, but we did protest about the finished product of the tracks as they were not the kind of rock sound we wanted,î explained Endra adding that he hoped their next album would be a different story, more of what they envisioned the band to be.Endra and gang were slightly happier with the music video of their first single, ìGadis Seperti Dirimu.î Portobello -- the production house responsible for making thevideo -- offered them the concept similar to REMís ìImitation Of Life.î"The picture was great, but we didnít find the storyline and everything else that was supposed to be there."Then again, the band felt that they are fortunate to have the chance of recording an album, so rock fans out there, prepare yourself to be dazzled by the these suns!

If a band ever finds that it is not giving their best effort and playing at the edge of their abilities at all times, then they are not playing the kind of music that they should be playing.
- Patrick T. Daly, Oxford, UK

This philosophy, placed in the context of hardcore music, is what made Refused so unique. Complex rhythms, hardcore rage, political activism and a dose of experimental sonic confusion all smashed together to create a seamless ball of energy.

Refused set themselves apart by fuelling their collective creativity with the tension that is inherent in the band environment. With five creative forces using the whole to satisfy each of their own creative desires, there is potential for failure here. Fortunately, there was enough unity in the vision to turn tension into energy.
We made this album wanting to challenge peoples preconceptions of what a Punk band could be and what it could play, because Punk is the most conservative musical form there is. Even in Hardcore, there are so many rules about what is and what is not acceptable, and that completely negates the whole spirit of the original idea.
- Dennis Lyxzén / Refused.

Lyrically speaking, Refused delves heavily into the political arena. Their Anarchist stance becomes clear in The Deadly Rhythm, when they ask,

Is it our duty to die for governments and for gods? / Is it our privilege to slave for market and industry? / Is it our right to follow laws set to scare and oppress? / Is it our gift to stay in line and will it take away the blame? / We can no longer pay the price / We'll get organized / We will no longer believe that working for you will set us free.

Stretching beyond the political arena and into the area of personal motivation, they attempt to light a fire under your ass in Summer Holidays vs. Punk Routine by saying, We're all tired of dying / So sick of not trying / Scared that we might fail / We'll accomplish nothing / Not even failure.

The spokesmen of Refused were Dennis Lyxzèn, David Sandström, Kristofer Steen and Jon F.Brännström.

Dennis - All Things Vocal
Kristofer - Guitar, Bass, Drums
Jon - Guitars, Samplers
David - Drums, Guitar, Melodica
