So you need a Malaysian band name?

Technorati tags: , ,

Is the Malaysian music scene not "Malaysian" enough? Are the band names way too westernized? Will Rais Yatim wear a sarong for the rest of his political career?

Well, I don't know about the last question, but to help future musicians select appropriate and more Malaysian-sounding band names, the music editors at myAsylum has painstakingly put together a list of 60 band names! Not 10, not 37, but 60!! Most of these reflect current or past events that have colored the Malaysian landscape, and where there are specific incidences associated with the name(s), we've provided links for you to check out. They're ordered alphabetically, and in no particular order of favoritism.
