When skinhead cult emerged in the city of Alor Star, there's so many
activities that the boys do on Saturday, it such like jamming the oi!
music. These boys have talent to play the music instrument, and they
really love the oi! Sound, so they have decided to form a band. From his,
they started practice and thinking to give a name for their band. One day
Mat Kie and Botak Azim, think why not OFF SIDE became their band name.
They have told the band members about their ideass and they was accept it.
There became OFFSIDE as the oi! and Street Punk band in Alor Star. Because
they are Skinheads their influence also the oi! band such like SHAM 69,
OXYMORON, THE BUSINESS, LAST RESORT, THE BLITZ, OPPRESSED, COCK SPARRER
and local band like A.C.A.B, ROOTS ‘N’ BOOTS, THE OFFICIAL and many more.
They have practice a lot to achieve their ambition. These 5 young
Skinheads with the spirit of the oi! and street music want to make
something that can be proud of Alor Star Skinheads crew. There are Hiero
as vox, Jan K.K as 1st guitar, Milah as a 2nd guitar, Mat Kie as a bassist
and Botak (Azim) as a drummer stand as one in the name of OFFSIDE have
start the revolution and ready to oi! the world with sound they played.
They have play in many gig and gigs around Alor Star, and not at all gigs
they play is a Skinheads gigs, sometime they got a problems with the
organizer because they are not skinhead. But that was not mean to broke
the spirit. They want people to know that they wasn't innocent. For the
1st time they got a chance to perform a gig in Ipoh, It was their 1st gig
outside from Kedah and 1st time perform in skinhead gig. There go with all
Alor Star skinheads crew by bus, with 44 crew of Alor Star skinheads. The
gigs was held with full of fun and pride. After that gig, THE OFFSIDE has
gone and silent for a moment. It was because the bandboy was busy with
studying and do their own job. But the boy's strike again with compilation
album (Wait Semenet a.k.a Lust Minute Compilation) produced by Stuck Music
Records. OFFSIDE was record their killer song "Hijau Kuning" and
"Warrior". This compilation was a great step to introduce OFFSIDE and
their music to all skinheads and people in Alor Star and all oi! music
lover. Just like the other band, OFFSIDE also losing a bandmate, Botak (Azim)
as a drummer was leave the band for study and the other bandmate was upset
losing a very talented drummer. A few days later, drum position was
replaced by Nazatt. 2OO3 is the lucky and a very good year for OFFSIDE,
for the 1st time OFFSIDE was invited to perform at their hometown (Alor
Star). For 2nd time THE OFFSIDE feel verylucky and they play again in the
Alor Star at the same place at Dewan Leong Say Thong. But at the end of
2OO3, Hiero (vox) was decided to leave the band because he got job to do.
But with the spirit and soul of the oi!, they had found Ustad as a new
vocal for OFFSIDE. Started from that day, Ustad as vocal, Jan K.K as 1st
guitar, Milah as a 2nd guitar, Mat Kie as a bassist and Nazatt as a
drummer. OFFSIDE was stand with this line-up until today to to rock on all
