White Is Boring is post-punk/grunge indie band from East Jakarta, Indonesia, with two personels: Remon (vocals, guitar) and Tamie (drums, songwriter). Upstream of this band is a Brit pop band in 1999 called Luaka Bop that plays music like Cornershop, Kula Shaker and others. They wrote some songs and get a fairly good reception from the scene at the time, although there has never been a single recorded. Around the year 2002, the band broke out in conjunction with musical intensity decreased drastically due to the transition of music trends in Indonesia. Two years later, two members of the band (Tamie and Remon) decided to work again to invite some friends. They also began playing garage music with the influence of Weezer. But the band does not run long, because Tamie and Remon not satisfied with the achievement of their musicality. Eventually they both started to make the concept of the two-pieces band, and gave it the name White Is Boring. In 2005, they began recording songs that have been created under the name White Is Boring. Recorded it in D.I.Y. way in Tamie's room, eventually the album was released, Suburban White Dogs. Since then, they were intense enough to perform at the gigs, as they continued to write new songs. Two of their albums actually released in the period 2005-2010, reportedly still pending.
