this is a zine, an archive, a blog, an event calendar, a place where rock’n’roll, especially of the fringe + underground, independent, DIY and related, came to be highlighted, promoted and documented.
running as a scene-blog since 2004, this website was operating as The Ricecooker Shop‘s portal from early 2007. TRS was a physical, brick’n’mortar music store first based at the Annexe, Central Market for more than three years, before moving on to two different locations in the city.
three years after the shop closed down in 2014, it morphed into a library/museum or an archive. we call this The Ricecooker Archives – Southeast Asian Rock’n’Roll Treasury (quite grand, we know).
The Ricecooker Archives have our own space at 84B, The Zhongshan Building, Jalan Rotan, Kampung Attap, Kuala Lumpur. here we collect, collate, clean-up, digitize, database and archive rock’n’roll artifacts from around the region. our aim is to preserve and to share it with the world.
note: the setting up our physical archives is still on-going, so those who wanna come meet and visit, do get in touch with us first. terima kasih.
