FEB024: “Catch Me When I Fall” by Bangkutaman


 
Bangkutaman, which taken from Bahasa Indonesia with the meaning “park bench,” was originally formed by J. Irwin and Bayu Prabowo in 1999 in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. The band members are J. Irwin (lead guitar and backing vocal), Wahyu “Acum” Nugroho (lead vocal and bass guitar) and Dedyk Erianto (drums).

After 10 years together, Bangkutaman is ready to branch out beyond their native Indonesia and introduce the world to their 1960s-’70s rock’n’roll sound. The band sites American and British influences such as The Velvet Underground, The Byrds, Led Zeppelin, The Beach Boys, Donovan and The Who, as well as some of their Indonesian pop contemporaries.
