Indie pop outfit from the 90’s Wondergel finally announced the members who are set to perform at their reunion concert through their Facebook page. From 6 members, only half of them will reprise their roles on Wondergel and they are Meita Kasim (vocal), Diah Rajanti (vocal/guitar), and Lala Nurlilawati (bass). Whereas the other three members cited conflicting schedule and other routine as the reason behind their absence. “I immediately contacted the rest of Wondergel members. Unfortunately, some of them could not perform due to each of their business or routine. Among the 6 members from the last formation, only 3 agreed to be on stage including me. It’s highly possible to be four, but this one has to be persuaded,” wrote Meita on Wondergel’s Facebook post. As promised earlier, Wondergel have invited supporting musicians from across backgrounds and ages. There will be Stanley Tulung (guitar), Raden Agung Imanissimo (keyboard/cello), Seffrino Ompy (drums), and Soebroto Harry (bass) to complete the formation of the band.
It turned out that these four musicians were the music masterminds behind Wondergel’s self-titled album which was released in 1997. It was also announced that the concert will be conducted on 12 August 2017. So far, the band is keeping secret about the setlist that they will perform later. Soon, they promise to announce other featuring artists and hint that they will bring back the music with a touch of something new. It is likely that we could hear some re-arrangement of their old songs. After officially announcing their reunieon back in May, Wondergel have re-released their single “Asa Dimana” through netlabel Ripstore.Asia and have revealed two lyrics video for their songs “Jalan Yang Sama” and “Junkie” which you could find on their Facebook.
