moderndog: soem sukhaphap



band: โมเดิร์นด็อก (moderndog)
album: เสริมสุขภาพ (soem sukhaphap)
tracklist:
01. บุษบา (butsaba)
02. กะลา (kala)
03. ...ก่อน (...kon)
04. มานี (mani)
05. พรุ่งนี้ (phrungni)

moderndog were real pioneers in thailand's independent rock scene. this cassette, their 1994 (พ.ศ. 2537) debut, was likewise the inaugural release of historic thai indie label bakery music. they would go on to be the biggest act in thailand at various points, and likely most modern thai bands would acknowledge a debt of gratitude to them. their sound bears influence from contemporaneous western "alternative rock" bands, groups such as faith no more, radiohead or bad brains, and they boast an impressive range of dynamic and song style. many might recognize them from wisit sasanatieng's film หมานคร (ma nakhon) or "citizen dog", which featured heavily (and in numerous iterations) their hit "...ก่อน" (track 3 on this album). enjoy the sounds of moderndog!

how do you extract the RAR file? i tried it in TOTAL COMMANDER but he cannot read the files, I think because he does not recognise the thai letter type used for the songs :-(

ah, try downloading the one from the main post, which you can reach by clicking the word "tracklist"! that will take you to a version free of thai characters, for those whose computers cannot read thai! hope this works!

thanks so much for posting this, they're like the beatles to thai kids in their late 20s.
