    Episode 06: Sofia [Riz's Daughter]

    Episode 06: Sofia [Riz's Daughter]

    In our sixth episode of the Unite Asia Podcast, we interview my daughter Sofia! Why? Because. :-) Actually, it's because the person we were supposed to interview couldn't make it even with rescheduling several times. Luckily, my daughter was ready to jump right in! In this episode she talks about her favorite records, and even talks about the times I brought her out on stage when my old band King Ly Chee played in Shenzhen and Taiwan. 
    She says she's SUPER excited to see what comments you're all going to leave so please leave some below!

    Episode 05: Aca of Straight Answer [Indonesia]

    Episode 05: Aca of Straight Answer [Indonesia]

    In our fifth episode of the Unite Asia Podcast, we welcome who is absolutely at "legendary" status in our eyes. We invited the hilarious Aca, vocalist of legendary Indonesian hardcore band Straight Answer formed in 1996. He has a wealth of life experiences to share with the world including how a dude in Jakarta found his way to punk rock and then starting his band Straight Answer to years later running a store that is his bread and butter. He even was open enough to talk about a massive health scare that happened 4 years ago that required multiple surgeries including the removal of part of his skull - thus why he wears a helmet on stage when he performs.

We talk about how a kid in Singapore got into hardcore but also then veer into conversation about the horrible accident that took place year that has left this creative genius paralyzed from the neck down.
    We hope you will take the time to listen to this interview in its entirety over the course of the week. We especially hope you will take the time to leave a few words of encouragement for Mel in the comments below and on his own social media accounts. Lastly, we hope you buy every last piece of Green Spell merch so we can blow up his apparel line and support him!
