Indonesia was Under Boots

This is a title of book created by Indro Tjahjono, careteker of Student Board ITB in 1970s. Original title is in Bahasa “Indonesia di Bawah Sepatu Lars”. This book was famous in student movement in the new order. It contents Indro’s pledoi when he was accused as suspect because of students movement against Soeharto regym.

I read several chapters, still more than 100 pages remaining. Even now I am not a student again, but from this book I can keep my spirit on. Thank you Pak Indro for sharing your worth experience in this book. Hope me can meet you asking for your signature in this book 🙂

Pure Saturday

This is first music biography book I ever read.

The complete title of the book is “Pure Saturday, Based on True Story” written by Idhar Resmadi. By this book, I have just known this indie band. My friend said that this band is famous, he is one of its fan.

This book told about how Pure Saturday can survive in high competition of musics industry. This group initially came from a group of young men who interested in musics especially rock. They then created lyrics and played them in some events. Accidentally they joined an competition and won. Pure Saturday had more fans who like indie musics.

This group ever changed over one label to another. Beside that, it had problem especially in how to coordinate the team. It experienced years vacuum of activity because of its member choosed to focus with their jobs.

This book is presented with good journalism, it’s worth to read.
