Could you tell us anything about each member of your band?
HI PETR! WE ARE GENERATION 69! CURRENT BAND MEMBERS ARE: (ME) WAN SHAH-22-
VOCALS/GUITARS, AYUL-LEAD GUITARS-20,, KIM-BASS-22 & BOY-DRUMS-20. WE'RE
CURRENTLY WORKING IN ODD JOBS & AS FAR AS I KNOW, THE BAND HAS BEEN AROUND
FOR ABOUT 8 YEARS ALREADY.

Your music has many influences (Song "Nation and a party" is speed and great). Do you listen HC or metal too?
YEAH WE LISTEN TO PARTICULARLY MOST STYLES AS IT WOULD BE BORING IF YOU PLAY
1 TYPE OF MUSIC IN YOUR ALBUM ONLY. SO A CHANGE OF SPEED WOULD BE NICE...

Is it easy to live in Malaysia?
TO LET EVERYONE KNOW FIRSTLY, GENERATION 69 IS NOT FROM MALAYSIA. WE ARE
FROM SINGAPORE, AN ISLAND SOUTH OF MALAYSIA WITH A POPULATION OF 3MILLION
PEOPLE. WE GAINED INDEPENDANCE IN 1965 SO THAT'S A BIT OF HISTORY FOR YOU
GUYS OUT THERE. ANYWAY, SINGAPORE IS A GREAT PLACE TO BE IN EXCEPT IT IS A
BIT EXPENSIVE (THE BEER! CARS!). OTHER THAN THAT, STRICT LAWS MEANING NO
DEMONSTRATIONS, MARCHES, ETC. THAT WOULD LAND YOU IN PRISON SERVING 2-5
YEARS!

Are you in contact with other oi! bands from your country?
YES, AS I DO MY LOCAL (AND THE ONLY) SKINZINE HERE, IT IS IMPORTANT TO KEEP
UP WITH THE CURRENT PROGRESS OF ALL THE BANDS HERE. YOU KNOW, JUST TO HELP
THEM OUT.

Do you know any oi! bands from Eastern World?
YEAH, MALAYSIA WILL BE A GOOD START. THEY HAVE LOADS OF Oi! BANDS, A FEW
GOOD ONES BUT LOADS ARE SHITTY. JAPAN ALSO HAS SOME & SO DO INDONESIA &
AUSTRALIA.

Do you read any foreign magazines / zines?
NOT IN THE LONG TIME BUT I GET UPDATES ONCE IN A WHILE FROM PENPALS &
CONTACTS IN EUROPE.

Your opinion on hooligans and football violence?
I LOVE READING ABOUT FOOTBALL VIOLENCE & HAVE BEEN IN CONTACT WITH A FEW
AUTHORS/HOOLIGANS & GET THEIRBOOKS. BUT I HEARD IT IS DYING OUT AS CERTAIN
MEMBERS OF THE FIRM ARE SERVING HEAVY SENTENCES.

In which town do you stay or live? /name of this (these) town(s) and something about this (them)/
I STAY IN BEDOK BUT SINGAPORE IS RELATIVELY SMALL SO YOU CAN GET FROM ONE
END TO THE OTHER IN JUST 1 HOUR BY TRAIN. NOT MUCH THINGS TO RELATE; IT'S
ALL A NEIGHBOURHOOD THAT WE'RE BROUGHT UP IN.

Make you strong the fact when you can see skins and punks united on  your concerts?
YEAH, OF COURSE; UNITY HAS ALWAYS BEEN THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IN OUR SCENE
SO IT'S BEST THAT EVERYBODY GET TO ENJOY THEMSELVES AT SHOWS.

When skinhead starts to be a non-skinhead?
I GUESS WHEN THEIR INTERESTS ARE SLOWLY DYING OUT, THEN THEY'LL START TO
HANG UP THEIR BOOTS.OTHER THAN THAT, CONFLICTS IN BETWEEN FRIENDS, ETC.

Which part of woman’s body are you keen on? :-)
MMM.... I LOVE BREASTS!!! CAN YOU GET ME SEXY CHICK IF I DROP BY THERE???

Are you patriots? I think so. Tell me please something interesting about your land.
YEAH I GUESS SO. IF A WAR BREAKS OUT, MY GUESS IS, WE'D PROBABLY ALL BE
FIGHTING TOGETHER THIS TIME & LOOK OUT FOR EACH OTHER'S BACKSIDES. THE
INTERESTING THING ABOUT SINGAPORE IS THAT IT'S BECOMING INTO A
FAST-MOVING/UPGRADING CITY THAT EVEN THE PEOPLE THEMSELVES ARE NOT PREPARED ABOUT WHAT'S TO COME. BUT WE'RE NOT A 3RD WORLD COUNTRY LIKE WHAT OTHERS POTRAY BUT ACTUALLY AN ADVANCED CITY FULL WITH HIGH-TECH WEAPONS & STATE OF THE ART FACILITIES.

What can you say about your texts?
IF YOU MEAN LYRICS, THEY ARE MOSTLY WRITTEN ABOUT EXPERIENCES IN LIFE. EACH
& EVERY SONGS OF OURS TELL A STORY, MOST ARE TRUE SO THAT'S WHERE IT COMES
IN.

Redskins, RASH, SHARPs...tell me what do you know about?
I ONLY KNOW SHARPs COS WE HAVE A SMALL SHARP CREW IN SINGAPORE. NO NAZI
BULLSHITS, WHATSOEVER.

Have you on sale anything of your crew  (for example T-shirts, patches, pins..)
IF YOU LOOK AT MY ZINE UNDER 'FOR SALE' STUFFS, I HAVE A LOT OF LOCAL BAND
CDS TO PROMOTE. BUT SHIRTS, PATCHES, PINS ARE NOT THAT 'HOT ITEM' TO GET
THESE DAYS...

Have you any idols (great persons from history)?
WELL I'VE ALWAYS LIKED TO MEET THE BRIMSON BROTHERS FOR THEIR BRILLIANT
CONTRIBUTION TOWARDS THE WORLD OF HOOLIGANISM!

Are you interested in policy and any religion? Do you vote?
WELL, BEING SKINS WE HAVE ALWAYS NEVER MIXED IT IN WITH RELIGION OR
POLITICS. I BELIEVE IT MAY BE THE CAUSE OF SEGREGATION BETWEEN ONE LIFE &
ANOTHER SO LET THEM BELIEVE WHAT THEY WANNA BELIEVE. YEAH, VOTING IS
COMPULSORY IN SINGAPORE IF THEY WANNA CHANGE PRESIDENCY/GOVERNMENT.

Your opinion on Japanese right-wing bands like Ikazuchi, Ouka etc?
IF THEY'RE PLAYING FOR THE MUSIC, IT'S BRILLIANT BUT IF THEY ARE RIGHT-WING,
THEN THEY'RE BULLSHITS. FUCK ME! CAN'T THEY EVEN LOOK AT THEIR SKIN COLOUR!

Your discography and your future plans?

Please - some regards or your mottos to Skin-Read readers?
BE YOURSELF & KEEP THE FAITH. FUCKING CHEERS FROM THE CITY OF SINGAPORE...
