After winning the first Mystarz LG reality show, Tashya Basir formed a 4 peice band Tashya's Ink where "we have side partings, curly hairs and no age limit" she claimed. It started with a plan to have a backing band. Initially, the band was set up with the help of veteran Nakim on bass and soon a reliable guitarist and a level headed, well not so level headed drummer joined the duo. After a long journey of frustration and disappointment they came upon Ayub a reliable drummer and they have not looked back since.
Songs are from the elements of blues, a lil bit of brit pop, a tad of rock & roll and acoustic. "It’s a mixture of many things and if were food, we’d be called lasagna".
Tashya’s Ink has just finish their 3 track single CD + you'd be able to purchase them from our next installment of ARTrage Lab @ Soho KL, 14 + 15 March 2009 ya'll!
We're happy to see Tashya's Ink being featured in Issue 12 of Time Out Kuala Lumpur and that she'll be performing at Time Out KL's On the Up this March 18 at No Black Tie.

My mom owned a 'kedai runcit' (grocery store) when I was younger (am still young now though!). When I came across a crafter on Blogspot, who went by the name of 'My Kedai Runcit', it brought warmth into my heart and I dare say I felt compelled, unconsciously compelled, to feature it here. ;o)
'My Kedai Runcit' is not like the kedai runcit we are familiar with, they retail adorable handmade keychains, brooches, pouch, tote, accessories and dolls out of felt, mainly.
We'd love to have their sort of 'groceries' at ARTrage Lab don't we? Lets go over to their link and tell them so: http://mykedai-runcit.blogspot.com/

They come either printed, stenciled, or painted. Who wears their stuff? People who loves supersoft t-shirts, v-necks, cool colors, and most importantly, woozy illustrations + graphics. They produce paintings that always come in a pair (2 designs) or sidekicks (3 designs), with solo paintings once in a blue moon. They differ in shapes (small, medium, large) and each is individually different. ‘accidental art’ is their claim to fame – smudges and streaks are part of the art and not something you abhor – perfection isn’t the point with them.
