Who are you guys? (How the band were formed, how you guys move as a band)
We’re a product of previous projects that have broken up. Coebar and Adrian were also a part of a singer-songwriter duo, Middlesons. Also, Coebar, Alvin and Dan were a part of a band before this. They’ve broken up, but they saw no reason to stop making music.
Based on that, you can understand why we’re called GLASS.
We’re a band of brothers, like broken pieces that fit together. However, we’re still fragile. We don’t intend on breaking up anytime soon, but we don’t want to take each other for granted either.
What goes through your mind while playing live?
Ad: Get as crazy as possible
Al: Don’t do anything you didn’t do at practice
D: I don’t think, I just play
C: Am I emotional enough?
Do you guys happy with our “music industry” this year (2017)?
We don’t hear any more local music on the radio this year than the last. Independent releases this year have been consistently strong. 2017 has Jaie and Elmu Hisab’s new drops to offer, among many. We hope these releases will get more attention in the remaining months of the year.
Noh Salleh’s Angin Kencang has been a release we love this year. It’s good to see that he’s got so many plays online too.
Japan has an efficient public transportation network, especially within metropolitan areas and between the large cities.What do you think bout ours?
It’s evolving and getting more efficient. We wish that consumers would drive less so that we can see the change in lifestyle and culture. Not just infrastructure differences.

What is Jalang ?
It is a strong determination of wildness individual lifestyle movement, attitude, character, & language on he/she ownself. Only then after, a collective are naturally born base on one same principle. Enjoyment in skateboarding.
How Jalang move ?(direction,inspiration)
Doesn’t care about to be a group at all. Who’s active at the right time, moment & place, we just go. Inspiration comes from life obviously.
You as an artist , how you apply your perspective into your skating ?
Never try gain never experience. Only once i experienced, i will know & understand. After that only i can improvise myself in whatever course in my life.
Spot or Trick selection, which one you think is more important.Why?
Take this as an example. We need sound of break when we see a glass falling down aren’t we?. So, same for this question, we need spot and trick, that obviously work within each other naturally. But where is the person? Are the person enjoys and love doing that? For me, honestly, the most important is the feelings of enjoyment, & love doing on what the person do in skateboarding.
