The No-Fi, a rather odd name for a band which actually play some pretty good music. I do not know much about this band, to be honest, and I could not find more about them on the net, perhaps they shun publicity and online media and rather put all their attention and energy to their music making.
I was in Penang with the family for a short break recently, and while visiting the famous (and often packed) China House cafe for their incredibly wide range of delicious cakes during tea time, chanced upon the Canteen’s line-up for the night’s performance. Sounds interesting, and made a note to drop by again later in the night for some drinks and music. We (me & Agnes) got there a little late and missed catching Mystery Tapes and The Cottonfield Scarecrows performances but were in time for The No-Fi to take the stage.
Well, we were certainly not disappointed, The No-Fi came on for about 45 minutes and we both certainly enjoyed their music and our drinks, rather loud as the Canteen is a rather smallish venue, and we were sat quite near upfront, but enjoyable nonetheless, far from being no-fi, as they have christened themselves.
Although it may be a little cramped and not acoustically tops, I do like the simplistic, old ‘decrepit’ hall look of the Canteen as a band venue, the subdued warm lighting complements and sets up the ambience of the place perfectly to photograph a band performing live.
I will try to get in contact with No-Fi for more details about the band, whereupon, I will then update this post accordingly. In the meanwhile, sit back, relax, and enjoy some of the photos I took of them 🙂 while listening to No-Fi on soundcloud.
