Golden Wing

Golden Wing started as a high-school basketball team -- the Golden Eagles -- in Palembang, South Sumatra, in the late '60s. The band itself formed in 1969 and, as with the majority of British-influenced Indonesian groups in the early '70s, Golden Wing started its musical adventures faithfully covering Uriah Heap and Black Sabbath. Yet it is was the band's use of Malay melodies that cemented its popularity in its home country.In this style, "Hilang" shines as a highlight. Appealing to a popular consciousness while making public their musical experimentations -- bandleader Adhimantra introduced the Minimoog to Indonesia after smuggling a unit into the country in the early '70s -- the band was better known for its on-stage antics. Adhimantra, for example, is known to have played his Minimoog while hanging upside-down in concert.
