No Man’s Land – Scattered Around And Buried Interview
Redstar73 Blog: Please can you introduce your band. When was it started? What about your name?
No Man’s Land: No Man’s Land present are me (Didit) on vocals & guitar, Tam Tam on drums, Baut on bass and Galih on guitar. Musically we are influenced by British Oi! bands as The 4-Skins, The Last Resort, The Business, The Oppressed, Cockney Rejects and many more. We formed the band before I became a skinhead, we were in the punk scene at that time, but we prefer listening to just mentioned bands. I toke the band name from a war film I watched when I was in junior school. I like that film but we had other meaning of that words for our selves. No Man’s Land means that no one of us actually never belongs of this earth, we’re all just passing through. I got it when I saw some friends, brothers and someone died. They leave all things behind what they fought for in their life time such as their house, property, car etc. Now the owner is some one else who still alive.
