We Are The Champions: Kyoto Protocol Wins At Perang Saudara II

It was a dream come true for longtime local music fans as Malaysian veterans Kyoto Protocol found themselves at “war” with rock band Oh Chentaku and new challenger Pesawat.


Held at ATAS by by Bijan Fx on April Fool’s Day, it was certainly no joke as the three talented groups duked it out to win the friendly competition, aptly named “Perang Saudara II” (which is Malay for “War of the Brothers II”).

There is certainly no doubt that Kyoto Protocol, Oh Chentaku and Pesawat were all brilliant performers as they played to a room full of enthusiastic watchers.

All bands brought their “A” game but it was Kyoto Protocol that emerged victorious, though I’m pretty sure one could say that with the great music, great performances and great crowd, everyone was a winner. 😉
