Every first and third Wednesday of the month, Yahoo! MusicScene shines the spotlight on talented, up-and-coming bands or musicians in Singapore. In our final installment in a series of features on Baybeats bands, we speak to The Dirt Radicals.
The Dirt Radicals believe that Singaporeans should put their money where their mouth is, and support local musicians in action and not just words.
Speaking to Yahoo Singapore, Sam Cooper, 26, said, "Something that bugs me about the Sinagpore music scene is that people say they support it, but they don't do anything to show it, like buy a CD or go to a show."
"If you support it then support it; if you don't then don't say so," added the bassist.
The trio have a wealth of experience playing overseas, in addition to having spent 13 years in Singapore, to compare the support in different markets.
Drummer Matt added, "The support for local musicians here is probably not so dynamic as the people prefer pop music more."
