this week, classic rock isan-style northeastern pop! rock salaeng was a project of teacher(/songwriter/producer) sanyalak donsi of ban salaeng thon school in buriram1. the group was assembled from his former students and pitched to topline-diamond records as one of many rock isan groups formed in the late '90s, following the runaway success of thai-khmer band rock khong khoi (see also: rock ah-yah, rock sadaeo, rock sadoet, etc.). this cassette from 2000 features their surprise smash "motorcy' hang" (sung by choet, who we sadly lost last year) alongside a mix of lesser-known numbers, and also happens to feature future star-producer sawat sarakham on guitar, phin and bass. enjoy!
