The Times and OAG in an impressive showcase at Hard Rock

By ZACK YUSOF

Much has been made in local alternative circles about the alleged feud between The Times and OAG but at their gig at the Hard Rock Café in Kuala Lumpur last Saturday – the latest instalment in the venue’s popular Saturday Rock Fever series – both bands kissed and made up in true rock ’n’ roll fashion by delivering blistering back-to-back sets on an enjoyable double bill that buzzed on the music rather than controversy, rumour and bad blood. 

After all the stories that have been written about both bands late last year following the shock departure of key OAG members – Natazar and Alim – to form The Times in a creative knee-jerk reaction to OAG’s shift towards a softer, more mainstream musical direction, it certainly was good to see both bands close the book on all the gossip in a bid to let their music do all the talking instead.
