Need a gift for a gifted musician?
Nils was founded in the mid September of 1999 by dorm-high school mate with Jackson on guitar, vocals, songwriter, Dennis on bass, vocals, and Ian on drums, vocals, co-writer. Basically, NILS is heavily influenced by Nirvana.. but the Foo Fighters and Green Day has their shares in NILS. In brief, in late 2000, Ian left the band. Then, NILS changed its formation with Esto "Tukul" on drums. Due to unfortunate events, in late 2001, NILS split by itself. Only then, Ian, in 2002 form a band under the name NIGHTMARE with college mate. The new-will-become NILS consist of Ian on guitar, vocals, Kermit on guitar, Beni on bass, and Bowo on drums, vocals. And, like early NILS, a series of exhausting changes in formations and names happening in NIGHTMARE. Eventhough in change of formation, but the show must go on.. and NILS did eventually played on many events in Yogyakarta. To name a few, NILS played on some of the Yogyakarta's thrilling university events and on loads of awesome small venue gigs. Sometimes, NILS played songs of their own but most of the time, NILS is just being a Nirvana-band-cover, which is still cool to play. After some time being absent, the name eventually landed on NILS again. NILS is the official name used hereafter.. and, our last gig is on an Indonesia's independence day band parade in 2004.. Hopefully, we can REALLY ENRICH Indonesian music. We will REALLY ROCK Indonesia soon!
