Introduce yourself 
Edwin. I work in the Creative industry & write and record music with TOKO KILAT.

Describe your style in 3 words?
Don’t Follow Trends.

What does the Fred Perry Shirt mean to you?
First I saw Skinheads wearing them in KL during gigs back in the 90’s, they said it was a uniform from the “bible” (a textbook photocopied and sold at Campbell Complex, KL) They wore them proud. There’s something authoritative about the brand to command a generation. 

What is the first song you played on repeat?
'Don’t Look Back In Anger'.
Because I had to start, stop, rewind the cassette tape to learn the chords. There was no Youtube then. The solo took a week to get right.

What is one record you would keep forever?
At The Drive-In - 'Relationship of Command'.
Monumental. That said, I’ll keep all my records forever.

What is a song lyric that has inspired you?
“Yeah, I am what I am.. I don't have no time for no misunderstandings again” from Drake’s Non-Stop. Scorpion on repeat.

What has been the best gig you've been to?
I’ve been to a few, RADIOHEAD & Roger Waters were recent, both epic.

Who is your ultimate British musical icon?
Johnny Marr. Age-defying performer, style icon and guitar hero.

What song do you wish you had written?
Imagine by Lennon, who wouldn’t?

Where do you go to see live music?
Around the world. If its worth it, I’ll make that trip!
