    Saturday was awesome, as far as I can remember.

    After having settled in a guesthouse near Hongdae, I met up with rpgshine to go to some kind of musician flea market she had head about. It seemed like a really nice gathering, and to my surprise I found Amature Amplifier sitting on the floor, offering several interesting CDs.... I said hi and learned that the Stretching Journey vocalist is currently studying abroad so that's why it's been kinda quiet from them lately.

  • South Korea Independent Music Scene

    In South Korea, Indie-scene is small but it's still alive.
    Seoul's Hongdae-Indie-scene is the core.
    In this core, amature amplifier is something odd existence.
    Many of lyrics are simple korean.
    Romantic is the first feeling for the music.
    But the gig is so funny, psyche and houmorous.
    If you visit Korea and courious about Korean Indie-Music, you must visit this area.
    Don't lose the gig of amplifier.
