I still remember after I finished my degree, I've decided to move to Setapak and settle there. There and then I want to find a band that I can relate to. I've been searching for bands that plays J-rock and for the first few months, I still can't find one. So I ended up joining JUNK.

Towards the end of August, my brother happened to stumble across a friendster bulletin that says there's a band playing Jrock is looking for a guitarist and ask me whether I wanna try this band out. I did.

I managed to chat with the band members on MSN prior to our first jamming. Quite nice.

Wow, it's almost 2 years already I'm with Mage.

The music of MAGE is somehow heavily influenced by J-rock music. On some occasion, other elements too. Check out Mage's Myspace.
