about

Guano Breath Malaysia

My output mostly dates back to the 1980s and has been heard by a mere handful. This isn't what I'm into now but at least I'm not too embarrassed about it.

Collaborations with others & freestyle choreographic works form an integral part of my archive.

I enjoy being the world's least ambitious musician.

Track Name: Share The Beauty
SHARE THE BEAUTY (Words by Lida Geh/Music by Antares)

I like this cave
So warm & soft & full of space
I’m floating free
There’s music in my ears
And silver lights before my eyes

I want to stay
But in my bones I know
I have to go
A voice is calling from somewhere
Come out of your dark cave
Come play with me

Share the beauty of this world
It’s our one & only
There’s so much you can be
When you’re part of the magic
Of this bluegreen pearl
You’ve yet to see

The silver stars
Dancing in the night
Hear the song of birds at dawn
Taste the ocean spray
Smell the jungle after rain

But listen to me
It’s not all smiles
Sometimes you’ll
Shed a tear or two
But then it’s up to you
To dry your eyes & see the sun

The voice is gone
Do I stay or do I go
I just don’t know
I liked this cave before
But now I think I’ve changed my mind
I want to see

Share the beauty of this world
It’s our one & only
So much you can be
When you’re part of the magic
Of this bluegreen pearl
You’ve yet to see
Track Name: Busyness-As-Usual Blues
Woke up this morning & I went right back to sleep
I woke up this morning & I went right back to sleep
Well, I'm the Lizard King, I can do anything
But I just can't earn my keep

I got a vision that keeps me on my feet
Well I got a vision that keeps me on my feet
But my friend the policeman he hands me a ticket
Every time we meet

Can you help me babe I got the busyness-as-usual blues
Won't you help me lady I feel like ah... what's the use
Well you can offer me some lovin'
You know I won't refuse

Can you help me babe I got the busyness-as-usual blues
Won't you help me lady I feel like a pair of old lizard shoes
Well you can offer me some breakfast
You know I won't refuse
Track Name: Chicken (Live at the Old Town Hall)
Chicken in the yard
Scratching dirt without a care
Will you ever quit your pecking
You silly chicken
And do a little checking?

Have you ever wondered
Where you come from
Have you ever asked yourself
Where you're going?

Chicken in the soup
With the onions & potatoes
Oooh you're looking good
And ready to be served

Hallelujah hallelujah Harland Sanders
Hare Krishna Hare Krishna curry chicken

Chicken a la king
Chicken in the basket
Chicken Delite & Kentucky Fried
And your mama's good old roast chicken
Track Name: Save The Country (Live Recording)
I know it’s no simple matter
In fact it’s a question of life & death
Some folks just getting fatter & fatter
While the skinny ones fade away like breath
Say goodbye to the dying
Save your love for the living
There’s no harm in trying
If you take a little less & do some giving (you can)

SAVE THE COUNTRY
DO WHAT YOU FEEL IS RIGHT
SAVE THE COUNTRY NOW
BEFORE THERE’S NOTHING LEFT

Don’t you abuse all the minerals
They’re very useful to the vegetables
Without vegetables there won’t be any animals
And one of these days there may be no more people
Don’t talk to me about the future
The problem lies in what you’re doing right now
Making plans & scheming just to suit yourself
But if you ruin the land you’re done for anyhow (so)

SAVE THE COUNTRY
CAN YOU HEAR THE CHILDREN SHOUT?
WE’VE GOT TO SAVE THE COUNTRY SOMEHOW
AIN’T THAT WHAT SELF-PRESERVATION IS ALL ABOUT?

This old planet ain’t no dead hunk of earth
She’s milk & honey & she rocks & she rolls
Home sweet home from birth to rebirth
You mean you didn’t know we’ve been hurting her soul?
Better figure out exactly what you need
Before you grab whatever you want
Maybe you’ve been working only for greed
But why build a factory? Just grow a plant (and)

SAVE THE COUNTRY
COME ON EVERYBODY SHOUT
GOTTA FIND A WAY TO SAVE THE COUNTRY NOW
AIN’T THAT WHAT SALVATION IS ALL ABOUT?
