History of Funkilus,,, Actually my Music band

It's the sort of story that scriptwriters would get laughed out of conference rooms for entering. The sort of story that illustrates perfect synchronicity between hunger, passion and time. The sort of story that only happens couple years ago. And the sort of story that would approximately 500 pages to do it true justice.
Who'd have thought it when, on October 11th, 1998, drummer Faizul Ikhwan(pezol) made guitar player/singer zul hafiz(Fizz) an offer he couldn't refuse: "I’ve got a track saved for my band on “thrill Lock” new Metal Blade label."
The truth is, Pezol didn't have a band at that time, but he did that day when Fizz joined him. The two recorded their first track on a cheap recorder with Fizz performing singing duties, rhythm guitar duties and bass guitar duties. Pezol dutifully pounded the drums, helped with musical arrangements and acted as manager. Pezol friend and neighbor Kimie was eventually talked into taking up bass and Amir took lead guitar duties.
After quacks of 2 years amir sent us the back home packaging and haniff replace the lead guitar.
Lead on the story of leaving.. kimie leave the band for concentrate his Jester band project.
Funkilus performed 2 shows in Gigs day and found the crowds friendlier and more honest. Unfortunately Haniff would not live to see and performed on next gigs at garage days in holier gigs at Australia in December 2002.
After celebrate our SPM result…Haniff ride his motorcycle and being crashed on road and hit by the car against him..he died instantly but he taste of music very much influence us in journey till present today.
Funkilus Spread out after that , Fizz joined Jester Band and play role as lead Guitar , Pezol want to leave the music for a while.
After 7 years of being spread out , Funkilus comeback with own taste former member Fizz , Pezol and new bassist Haziman or G-manz.
