Biography

Shark Move started playing in Bandung, Indonesia in 1970 and was founded by Benny Soebardja who played lead guitar and sang. Shark Move is one of the Indonesian rock pioneering bands who combined rock music with traditional harmonies and progressive sounds. Some songs on this LP have English lyrics. While other bands at that time were still playing sweet music, this is really an experimental recording. Unfortunately, at the end of 1970, the keyboard player passed away so Benny decided not to continue with his band and formed a new one named Giant Step.

Sharkmove was established in Bandung, West Java, Indonesia in 1970 by Benny Soebardja (lead guitarist and vocals) who also wrote songs titled “My Life”, “Butterfly”, “Evil War”, and “Insan”. Benny, at that time was

registered as student at the Faculty of Agriculture, Padjadjaran University. He invited his best friend, Soman Loebis, a student at ITB (Bandung Institute of Technology) to join Sharkmove as keyboard player as well as percussion. He then contributed writing one song “Bingung” for the band’s debut and only album “Ghede Chokra’s”.

They then recruited one of the best bassists in Bandung, Janto and also drummer: Sammy. Janto wrote two songs: “Harga” and “Madat”. The music of the band was then recorded in the Musica Studio, one of the well-known label in Indonesia until today, and sponsored by Bhagu Ramchand, an Indian with Indonesian nationality.
