It’s out in the papers and the blogs/portals:
as I wrote on ricecooker:
Friends all, kami semua OK (Alak ada benjol sikit kat dahi). kami perlu berterima kasih pada pemuda-pemuda AMK (Angkatan Pemuda Keadilan – t-shirt biru) yang rata-rata marah tapi masih cuba sedaya-upaya menyelamatkan kami dari segerombolan pemuda-pemuda berbaju merah yang memang ready to rip us apart. With the help of AMK, we all managed to sneak out of the stadium (separately) after about 20 minutes being under siege.
The problem here is our song â€œMari Nyanyi Menjilatâ€. Macam biasa, Alak did his exposing his underwear thing and of course dalam situasi panas tentang â€œliwat-meliwatâ€ sekarang, aku rasa that gesture was misunderstood by the people there.
Some reports I saw also misquoted the title as â€œLiwatâ€ instead of â€œJilatâ€, so if some bloggers made the mistake, Iâ€™m sure a lot of the people in the stadium misunderstood too. So many took umbrage lah, thinking that we were making fun of Anwar. Actually I even explained to the crowd the gist of the song before we played it.
The thing is aku rasa Alak was in his â€œauto-pilotâ€ mode. We have been playing that song for a long time and to a lot of people for years already and Alak have always been doing that to heighten the â€œsatireâ€. The kids in the scene would get the joke all the time but we canâ€™t expect the same from the public. Thatâ€™s our mistake.
Anyways, apart from the guys in AMK, we also must thank Tom (Skitzofrenia) who shielded Alak from a lot blows, and in the process also got some benjol-benjol. Much thanks to Mad Yus (Apparatus), Poodien, Mirdza (Relationsheep), Black and many more who were there and helped out.
BTW; Mari Nyanyi Menjilat (not Mari Belajar Menjilat, as Malay Mail wrote) is about integrity or the lack of it; the mother of corruption…
