Recognizing a killer riff when he hears one, Madlib lifted the track wholesale for his 'City' single in With original copies of Ghede Chokra's now trading hands for obscene money, and even the extremely limited Indonesian repress from a few years ago impossible to find, we decided it was time to step in and reissue this monster!
Pressed on blue vinyl with white splatter, and housed in a deluxe gatefold sleeve, now is the time to get your hands on this classic release. Keyboardist Soman Lubis was clearly both classically trained and rock-ready. Benny Soebardja was LP) a self-made superstar in the s, and quite rightly so. He created some of the most innovative pieces of rock music in Indonesian music history, both by himself and as a member of Giant Step and leader of Lizard, his own backing band. He collaborated with some of the most talented musicians and songwriters in the decade.
However, most importantly, he knew when to start, when to learn from his mistakes which he made very few ofand when to stop. Benny was born in in Tasikmalaya, a small city in the West Java province of Indonesia. He moved to the provincial capital, Bandung, in initially to continue his study in agriculture at Universitas Padjadjaran Unpad. Having been an accomplished guitar player, Benny surrendered to the temptation of forming a band with his closest friends, a band which would be Butterfly - Shark Move - Ghede Chokras (Vinyl as The Peels not the be confused with a one-hit-wonder American band of the same name which was formed around the same time.
To further enrich their sound, The Peels recruited Soman Lubis to provide keyboard work. Unfortunately, the band folded soon afterwards due to disagreement on musical direction since the rest of the band refused to move towards a more psychedelic and progressive sound, according to Benny Soebardja.

Giant Step disbanded in just when the Indonesian rock landscape started changing. It seemed that Benny and his comrades knew when to stop. Apart from a short reunion and tour in which resulted in a more commercially oriented album, GeregetanGiant Step would not be heard from again for a very long time.
Knowing his musical heyday would not last, Benny turned to a completely different business: handmade wooden furniture. With his Bents Furniture company and a handful of craftspeople and artisans, Benny became a successful businessman and even achieved international success as his furniture was exported to and became well known in Europe.
InBenny decided to return to square one; with Janto, he reformed the LP) that first contained his musical experimentation: Shark Move. For most other members, the lone Shark Move album was and still is their only recorded output. Bhagu Ramchand was a progressive rock enthusiast but he never was, and never considered himself to be, a musician.
Bhagu Ramchand had been a textile trader before Shark Move and he continued in the same business until he passed away in Sammy Zakaria was in several bands after Shark Move disbanded. It seemed that recording opportunities always evaded Sammy as he usually bolted out of the bands he had been in, before they even landed a recording contract.
He might have recorded with some bands before and after Shark Move, but these were not well-documented. In earlySoman Lubis accepted the invitation to join a then-small band called God Bless, to replace Deddy Dores.
