Lovehunters 2011

Rock in the New Year with local 90s Malay rock veterans Lovehunters. Band members Moliano, Yazid and Saha had been voted best guitarist, best bassist and best drummer respectively, back in the day for of Music Quest 1992 (The International Pop & Rock showcase). Runners up in Battle of the Bands 1987, the trio had won the hearts of many a teenage girl with their love ballads, both in the Malay and English. They have recorded nine albums, toured regionally during the 90s and became known by radio presenters as the “Most heavy 3 piece band in Singapore”.

After more than 10 years apart, the original Lovehunters line-up of Yazid, Moliano and Sahar return to their loyal fans with special guest appearances by musicians of the same era like local rock icon Ramli Sarip.

This combination promises audiences a truly rocking experience. Make it your big day out!

How To Install APKs In Virtual Android OS PC.

Since I can’t find a way to download the apks to the OS, I had to install the apks directly from the internet.

1. From the VMware console with Android OS 3 loaded, press ALT+F1 to go to the command box.
2. Change the current path by typing: cd /system/app
3. From the cmmand line, type wget http://server_path/apkfile.apk to install the apk. (ping the server_path to get the ip address.)
4. Press ALT+F7, to go back to the desktop and voila, enjoys!
