The Leng Pleng Gig Guide comes out on a Thursday or Friday of every week

Weekly Wrap - Commencing Thursday the 29th January 2015

Menh Sothyvann is better known in the music world as ‘Mr To’ - a surviving guitar hero of the ‘Golden Era’ of Cambodian rock’n’roll. He is a current member of the reformed Drakkar Band – who performed a number of memorable reunion shows in 2014. Phnom Penh gig-goers may remember the emotionally-charged and rocking performances at Sharky Bar and FCC – The Mansion. Mr To will be at Sharky Bar this Friday with his own backing band – reprising psychedelic sixties shreds and playing many of his own compositions. This should be a very cool gig. Check out the great video below, put together by Nichse7en, capturing Mr To in action at Sharky’s with Drakkar.

Dub Addiction return to Equinox this Saturday – the Phnom Penh venue where it all began for them back in 2011. Professor Kinski, Seb Adnot, Toma Willen, Chatria Chen, Jimmy Kiss, and Yang Pov continue to bring their unique brand of ragga-dub sounds to concert venues around the Kingdom of Wonder and beyond – with recent visits to Thailand and Réunion Island. Any Dub Addiction show is guaranteed to feature an irresistible barrage of heavy-duty grooves - layered with rocking guitar riffs, soaring Khmer vocals, funky keyboards, ragamuffin lyrics and the weird and wonderful sounds emanating from Professor Kinski’s onstage mixing board. This band must be experienced live.

Also in Phnom Penh on Saturday, Vibratone present a more laid-back, roots-reggae-style alternative with their show at Latin Quarter. The band, who play only their own original songs, have recently been busy recording their first album. Click the pic below to listen to a demo of the track ‘Phnom Penh Fire’ - recorded last year.

Papa Dub is a mixed-media musical project by Dub Addiction bassist Seb Adnot. Check out the video below to see a mash-up of awesome sounds produced by Papa Dub and moving images provided by Asia Motion (NB there are actually three different videos within this clip). See a live show by Papa Dub this Sunday afternoon at Le Pain de Jade in Kep.

Stay safe out there and... see you around the traps!
