Big Ass is a Thai rock band. It was originally a pop rock band but the music moved toward hardcore punk in some of the band's recent works. During the band's early years until mid-2012, the band leading vocals was Ekkarat "Dax" (or "Dak") Wongchalard. Later half of 2012, Daycha "Jeng" Konarlo became the new leading vocals, replacing Ekkarat in EP Dan Neramit, their latest album, was released in April 2013.[1][2]

History[edit]

Big Ass released their first album Not Bad in 1997 on the Music Bugs label. Their second and third albums, XL and My World, followed in 2000 and 2003. Big Ass won numerous awards for their work but attracted a rather limited[clarification needed] audience during their first three albums. It left Music Bugs to join the Genie Records label of GMM Grammy. Their fourth album Seven (signifying seven years in the music scene) was very successful in terms of awards and popularity. The album was recognized by both major music awards in Thailand: Season Awards, and Fat Awards[3] (see Awards section below). Popularity-wise, they were also voted the most popular artist by fellow artists in Fat Awards No. 3 and nominated for the most popular group in 4th Channel [V] Thailand Music Video Awards. Their fifth full album was Begins with hit songs such as "Kha Noi Somkhuan Tai" and "Prom Li-Kit".

Besides their studio albums, Big Ass has a song in the special album Wan Fa Mai (วันฟ้าใหม่) celebrating New Year released around the end of 2005. The song "Rao" (เรา) on the album was performed by Big Ass together with Bodyslam.

In 2008, an original soundtrack for Thai movie Pid Term Yai Hua Jai Wawun (ปิดเทอมใหญ่ หัวใจว้าวุ่น, also known as Hormones) featured Big Ass. The band also appeared in the film as themselves playing the song "Kon Tai" (ก่อนตาย) in a pub.[4]

In 2011, the band's guitarist-backing vocalist Poonsak Jaturaboon sang in the original soundtrack Tum Yu Nai Jai (ทุ้มอยู่ในใจ) for the film SuckSeed. Ekarat Wongchalard also appeared as himself in the movie.[5]

In July 2012, the band revealed on Facebook that the long-time leading vocalist Ekarat Wongchalard would leave the band due to his music work reaching saturation. Daycha Konarlo appeared as the band's new leading vocalist on their single "Dan Neramit" (แดนเนรมิต), which was released in August 2012. The second single "Thao Thi Mi" (เท่าที่มี) was released in October 2012. The singles were made available through iTunes. The EP Dan Neramit was released in April 2013.[6] Ekarat later joined Rock Rider team producing TV shows about rock music and travel on big bike. Ekarat released a solo Khon Tai Thi Hai Jai (คนตายที่หายใจ) with Rock Rider (consisting of Dak, Silly Fools, Airborne) in 2014. [7]

In 2014, Big Ass performed an original soundtrack Ab Nam Ron (อาบน้ำร้อน) for the TV series Hormones the Series (season 2).

Origins of the name[edit]

Student Weekly: The name of your band is a bit naughty. How did you come up with the name Big Ass?

Dax: Actually when we were students we used so many different names to book studio time that the owner would get confused if we were the same band. So we wanted to find a unique name to represent our band. When we looked around, the first thing that caught our attention was an ass. It seemed firm and sturdy just like rock music, the music we like. And we didn’t want just a normal ass, so we named the band Big Ass.

In the news[edit]

Ekarat Wongcharat, the leading vocal of Big Ass, made the headlines when a 17 year old men's magazine model nicknamed "Fai" appeared with her baby "Justin" and claimed that Wongcharat was the baby's father on February 2006. Allegedly they had sex when Fai was 16 years old, meaning that Wongcharat would be a child sex offender if the accusation was true. Wongcharat was subsequently arrested and released on bail on 27 February. While Wongcharat gave his blood sample for DNA testing in March, Fai and Justin did not give theirs until early May. On 10 May 2006 police announced that the result was negative. A retest performed by Khunying Pornthip Rojanasunand drew the same conclusion. Even through he is not the child's father, the trial for the underage sex offense remained. The trial began on 13 February 2007 and the court decision was announced on 21 March 2007. He received two years of a suspended sentence and must produce two anti-drug songs as pledged by the singer in exchange for a light sentence.[11][12]

Trivia[edit]

Konarlo has bear resemblance appearance to Leonidas from 300(Film) and it has become his alias.
