• Indie Power 2001

    Indie Power was a concept from Rock Records Korea where fairly new bands could get some publicity making covers of old kpop songs. Four albums were released in the series: 1999, 2001, 2002 & 2003. It's been a couple of years since I ordered all the Indie Power albums, however the 2001 one had sold out at the supplier so it wasn't till spring this year (yes, I'm quite behind in writing most of these reviews, or whatever to call them) that mrkwang could get me a used copy of that album.

    Most of the originals to these songs are from the time when all I knew about Korea was that Asian people lived there. And that Donald Duck went there once. With few exceptions I didn't have any affection for those songs before digging them up in their capacity of being originals for the songs on this Indie Power compilation. I might actually be wrong and some of the "originals" are covers too and all off in whatever I might say about them - if so, feel free to correct me. …
