Adrian Adioetomo, "Lidah Api Menari"

The first single, taken from "Karat & Arang", Adrian's long overdued 2nd album. Directed by Anton Ismael with help from a lot of cool guys at Anton's Third Eye Studio It's about getting hooked. Addicted, and realizing that it's too late. Addicted. To something that begins with courage then turned into something corrosive. The tattoo imagery represents something that can't be undone. Something that's embedded in you forever. How you carry it will be your attitude of it. Drums are played by Cliff Sumeisey, an occasional part-time drummer who'll kick any professional full-time drummer's ass any day, and bass by Bonny Sidharta of 'Deadsquad' fame. They give the song punch and body respectively. LIDAH API MENARI Tak ada alasan di kantong celanaku Tak ada maksud-maksud tertentu Tetapi kau sudah menelanjangiku sampai tulangku Aku bosan mabuk anggurmu Botol rock'n'rollmu yang palsu Tetapi kau sudah di dalam darahku Sisa hidupku Panah hati, akar duri Lidah api menari Biar kuhirup dosamu itu Saat menyelimuti wajahku Lalu menuju batas bawah sadarmu sampai kau tahu Rantai kunci, sumpah mati Lidah api menari DANCING TONGUES OF FLAME No reason in the pocket of my pants And no hidden intentions of any kind But you've already stripped me off my skin Right down to my bones I'm tired of being drunk on your wine Your fake, bottled rock'n'roll But you're already here inside my vein All my life's remains The arrow, the heart, the roots of thorns Them dancing tounges of flame Let me inhale some of your sins as it blankets all around my face Let it sneak in underneath subconscience 'til you come around The chains, the key, oath eternally, Them dancing tounges of flame ©2013 MySeeds Records

Known as one of the current revivalist of Blues music in Indonesia, especially Delta-Blues. This is due to his first album, “Delta Indonesia”, which was included in the Rolling Stone Indonesia’s Best Album Of The Year 2008 that has made its mark as a revolutionary album in the Indonesian music scene. The album is a tribute to the great delta bluesmen in the 1930’s in a lot of ways; the guitar playing, the songwriting, as well as the overall sound of the recording. 

Adrian himself started playing back when he was still in high school. Playing any simple punk and rock songs at first, the developed into heavy metal. When he moved to Australia, his taste and playing gradually shifted to Delta Blues. This was further encouraged when he met one of his heroes, the late great Chris Whitley there and hung out at his apt in New York.

In Australia he met another great slide guitarist, Jeff Lang whom he also learned a lot from. After coming back to Indonesia for sometime, he started playing blues at pubs and expatriate cafes around Jakarta and garnered quite an appreciation for playing favourite blues numbers in acoustic slide-delta style. The live-recordings and demos he made as souvenir sold out almost every time he played . This ensured him to record the demo in an album version and made it commercially available.
