QU KanGEn nIH is centered on mysterious guitarist Ludy Codeath, who based on our intel, resides in Bandung. But, in recent interview with Musik.or.id, Ludy claimed coming from outer space.
Ludy unrevealed his other band mates names, but showing us their pictures (from the CD lay out), which we refused to believe. He said QU KanGEn nIH members are coming from famous bands like Peter Pan, Jamrud and Ungu!
“AntiQue Dan KetAian Yang HaQiQi” was recorded at his home studio, then mixed and mastered at Insidious Soundlab, Bekasi, in summer 2017. The studio’s owner Januaryo Hardy handled the mixing and mastering.
Rudi Gorging Suicide designed the filthy cover arts.
On the cover album, QU KanGEn nIH was written in Sundanese alphabet style, so don’t be confuse if you cannot see any band’s name there.

Alay (or 4L4Y, Anak Layangan, Anak Jablay or Anak Lebay) is an Indonesian pop culture phenomenon. It is a stereotype describing something “tacky” and “cheesy” norak or kampungan. The Alay culture phenomena spans a wide array of styles in music, dress, and messaging. It has often been compared to that of the Jejemon phenomenon originating from the Philippines, and Harajuku from Japan. Although, the former emerged much later and the latter was even admired in the West. (Wikipedia)
