thegreatspyexperiment This is a GSE moment #19. 24 May 2015 and 12 days away from our big show at the #Esplanade Concert Hall on 6 June, Saturday. Tickets are still on sale on Sistic website. This pic was taken at Crazy Elephant, Clarke Quay at Music Matters 2012 on Day 1 of the 3-day music festival. We played 2 days at the festival; Day 1 at Crazy Elephant and Day 2 on the main stage, to a lovely crowd of dancers. We played a shorter set on main stage. By the time the set ended, it felt like we just began. Due to time, despite shouts of encore, we couldn't go on playing. It is always great to play to happy dancing people. Will we be seeing GSE dancers come joget with us, okay maybe with the dancers of the band, Fandy and myself, at our show on 6 June? #thegreatspyexperiment #greatspyexperiment #gse #tgse #eGSEMoments #musicmatters #musicmaking #sgmusic #crazyelephant #musicmatterslive2012 17h

Normal The Great Spy experiment
thegreatspyexperiment This is a GSE Moment #18. 23 May 2015 and 13 days away from our big show at the #Esplanade Concert Hall. This pic was taken at the One Movement Music Festival ground in Perth on 2010. Sometimes, or usually, amidst all the waiting between soundchecks and actual sets, we have hours to kill and we find things to do. Some of us will retreat to our corners minutes before going on stage to do vocal warm-ups, some will check tuning of equipment and some will do their alternate nostril breathing (prayanama). And some will get us to do crazy things like trying to carry each other off the ground. So when we were In Perth, it was the period of Khai's obsession with Power Balance bracelets and he insisted that the band do the strength and balance test. Well, it was good entertainment and amusement for us during those long waits. #thegreatspyexperiment #greatspyexperiment #GSEMoments #gse #tgse #perth #musicmaking #gsetravels #powerbalance 2d

thegreatspyexperiment This is a GSE Moment #17. 22 May 2015 and 14 days away from our big show at the #Esplanade Concert Hall. This pic was taken by @freakyfir at 'Celebrate 2010', New Year Countdown show at the Floating stage @ Marina Bay. We have done a couple of countdown shows and the thing about countdown shows is that we don't get to celebrate our New Year's with our family and friends and New Year's Eve are spent at rehearsals, soundchecks and actual show venues. This countdown show was special because our families and friends got to see our set on National TV and we went on stage and played at the stroke of midnight, with the 8 minutes of firework display as the backdrop of our set. It was magical. #thegreatspyexperiment #greatspyexperiment #gse #tgse #GSEMoments #celebrate2010 #countdownshow #musicmaking #sgmusic 3d

magdelenehan This is a GSE Moment #16. 21 May 2015 and 15 days away from our big show at #Esplanade Concert Hall. This pic was taken at Sport b. 'Plugged' concert soundcheck at Huashan Cultural-Creative Park in Taipei in 2009. We shared the stage with the Taiwanese favourites like Sodagreen and Crowd Lu. Fandy couldn't make it for this trip because of work so we had Iain from Firefight to stand in for drums. We also had Nic from Muon to do our sound for the set. It was my first time to Taipei and I was fascinated with the girls with their exaggerated fake eyelashes and cute Taiwanese accent, and of course, I had too many cups of bubble tea on this trip. The set went well and we had the whole crowd dancing to our songs. It was an especially enjoyable trip because of the hospitality we received from the people from Agnes b. Always a pleasure to work with them. #thegreatspyexperiment #greatspyexperiment #gse #tgse #GSEMoments #taipei #taiwan #sportb #agnesb #musicmaking #sgmusic #pluggedlive 4d

thegreatspyexperiment This is a GSE Moment #15 and not #14 because we have two #10. Only found out when Saiful mentioned at jam last night. 20 May 2015 and 16 days away from our big show at the #Esplanade Concert Hall. This pic was taken at Singfest 2010 at Fort Canning Park. It was our second Singfest and we played on Day 3, sharing the stage with Ian Brown from Stone Roses, Katy Perry, Thirty Seconds to Mars and Smashing Pumpkins. It was quite surreal, meeting Ian Brown backstage and hanging out with him and later, seeing Billy Corgan and Jared Leto. It is especially so when I saw Billy Corgan. He isn't the friendliest human being around but I thoroughly enjoyed his set later that night, brought back memories of my teens, listening to Smashing Pumpkins on my Discman. #thegreatspyexperiment #greatspyexperiment #gse #tgse #GSEMoments #singfest2010 #forthcanningpark #ianbrown #stoneroses #musicmaking #sgmusic 5d

Normal The Great Spy experiment
thegreatspyexperiment This is a GSE Moment #13. 19 May 2015 and 17 days away from our big show at the #Esplanade Concert Hall. This pic was taken at Zoukout 2008 at Sentosa. We have played a total of 3 Zoukouts and this was the one which Saiful couldn't make it. But we played anyway and with Fandy, Kevin Mathews, Ngak Ng and the guys from Pinholes taking over the vocals. We took the collaboration a step further, coordinated outfits, went to Army Market at Beach Road, bought ourselves overalls (red, white and orange ones) ala Beastie Boys, deconstructed them and spray painted lightning bolts on them. The guys painted lightning bolts on their faces ala David Bowie. All these done in the tiny room we shared at Rasa Sentosa. It was a riot on stage with so many of us and we had so much fun! #thegreatspyexperiment #greatspyexperiment #gse #tgse #GSEMoments #zoukout2008 #zouk #sentosa #pinholes #ngak 6d

Normal The Great Spy experiment
thegreatspyexperiment This is a GSE Moment #12. 18 May 2015 and 18 days away from our big show at the #Esplanade Concert Hall. This pic was taken at Central Park, Manhattan, New York in 2007. It was the first Singapore Day organised by Overseas Singaporean Unit under the Prime Minister's Office and we were extremely delighted to be a part of it. It was my first 18 hours direct flight and my first time to New York City. I remember eating too many cream cheese and smoked salmon bagels on this trip. The band was pretty seasoned with the tight scheduling and US timing for this event, having just returned from our 11 days SXSW trip a month back. It was spring and the flowers in Central Park were in full bloom. We are really very blessed to have been given the opportunity to play in the famous Wollman Skating Rink in Central Park. #thegreatspyexperiment #greatspyexperiment #gse #tgse #GSEMoments #NYC #centralpark #sgday2007 #singaporeday 7d

Normal The Great Spy experiment
thegreatspyexperiment This is a GSE Moment #11. 17 May 2015 and 19 days away from our big show at the #Esplanade Concert Hall. This pic was taken at Stasis 10 gig at Substation, which we shared the stage with 9 other local bands like Plain Sunset and B-quartet in 2008. Saiful is the guy behind the words of all the songs in our albums, 'Flower Show Riots' and 'Litmus'. He is like the brain of the band and Fandy is the heart. These two started the band, Super Spy, way back when they were in school. It became what you see now with the rest of us in it as The Great Spy Experiment after Saiful returned from his studies in London. He has pretty much kept to himself after the release of our second album. He had to deal with some personal issues and we, on the other hand, were also dealing with ours. It was like we were forced against our will, to grow up suddenly and deal with real problems. We just had to remember that sometimes we need to leave to arrive and come out stronger as a person and also as a unit with people who stuck around, awaiting our recovery. #thegreatspyexperiment #greatspyexperiment #gse #tgse #GSEMoments #GSEfamily #family #musicmaking #sgmusic #swim 1w
