A Walk To Feel The Sickness was another aspring heavy metal band vying for honour at the the finals of a regional pop, rock and soul battle of the bands competition where F88 led by Mat Zen eventually emerged as champion https://kenandagnesphotoworks.wordpress.com/2015/09/18/mat-zen-f88/.
Very sketchy info on them from the net … founded in January 2012, led by “Walkie Tokie” Tok Phillip on vocals and “May” Chong May Ling on guitars. The lady in the photos though is not May, perhaps a newly recruited band member or a sesssionist brought in for the competition. They played really LOUD (my ears were ringing after their performance) and Tok Philip was a bundle of ‘sickness’ energy, I liked his delivery but as a band, perhaps they lacked the tightness and cohesion sound of a winning band.
I am walking on the wild side in abandon processing these set of photos. The purist among you may cry foul, and to be honest, my initial reaction was to junk them, but after working on them for a bit, I found their raw indistinct look and energy quality rather appealing and hence this post. I look forward to your comments.
