Based on True Story Pure Saturday (U&Kl Books, 2013)

Pure Saturday formed in 1994. They are one of Bandung’s indie scene pioneers. Their self-titledebut album was released in 1996, the first 5000 copies of which were sold innovatively via mailorder through a teen magazine. The album was then available nationwide after the band signed

with Ceepee Records. The single “Kosong” made them household names, with the artistic accompanying video gaining heavy rotation. Their more complex and challenging second album, Utopia, was released in 1999 through Aquarius Musikindo. Pure Saturday released its long-awaited third album, Elora, in March 2005 through Fast Forward Records. After their restrospective album Time for a Change Time to Move On in 2007, their latest album, Grey, released in May 2012.
