    The cynical comments are much appreciated Mr H, but don’t get too “alamak” when you nampak The Ricecooker Shop logo on flyers for gigs at The Annexe la boss.

    Starting from July next month, The Ricecooker Shop will be taking care of all the “rock music” bookings at the space. It’s mainly to help the shop to make some money to pay the rent lah, and also to get gigs going there instead of just exhibitions and workshops, which takes up a lot of space but create not much traffic.

  6. Joe Kidd says:

    As for the band 2nd Combat, personally, I have always liked the band’s musical prowess, better than most around, even though there’s nothing original there (or anywhere else these days!), and they have been consistently playing good shows all around too; so thumbs up for that.

    A recent video interview we did at the shop with the band made me realise that 2nd Combat got their hearts at the right place. Very nice guys, extremely friendly and very idealistic, almost to the point of the absurd. Reminded me of the days when my band was writing “belia 4B” songs like “Slam Safe Today”! With naive lyrics like this:

    Now my friends, let us all have some safe fun
    No time to worry, no time to feel so down
    Don’t need no assholes in our pit tonight
    so move around, it’ll make you feel alright

    Now that really is cringeworthy nowadays but back then it was soooo important! Hah!

    However, that doesn’t mean I agree with all that youth-crew, posi-core, XXXX, poison-free stuff though. I leave that to the “Konservatif HC” part of the scene lah. As long as it rocks your boat lah. It’s not my business to meddle in anyway.

    The point is; I laugh at “Get pissed, destroy!” as much as I laugh at “True for Life”; both statements never fail to tickle me to death!

    Life and living it is not that simple boss! “Spiral Edge” is the way to go! Hahah!

    Cool la abg joe.

    About the logo, hope that it will not come with any purpose. Thanks to Joe Kidd for allowing United Front Records do show at The Annexe. Yes, affordable rent, pleasent space, since nothing good to be offered by others club here in klang valley for making a gig. We believe in business, we believe in making money in term of getting back what we had spent. Dont worry to much la tokey.

    “conservative HC” ?? yey yey

    oh yeah.. I have some gig pictures held at Annexe, click link below:


    This is Young And Dangerous Release Party.

    I have many more gig pictures. If u want to look at it, just email me.


  19. nizangdiofis says:

    skunkfix will appear on ‘punk rock paradox’ 4 way split under my label. unfortunately we’re unable to make it available tomorrow. i’ll be sending the cd for pressing later today. the cover is probably ready by now but i’m too damn busy with work nowadays. even on saturday!

    so yeah, do check out the band. and if u think u like it, do look out for the cd. it’ll be out, the latest in 3 weeks time. hopefully. the other bands on the cd are: brayok (ipoh punk rock), stick no bill (sg. petani skapunk) and the ray gradys (philadelphia pop/melodic punks). will be availeble at ricecooker shop at a very low price.

    btw, fuck work! more power to people who do more “punk rocker” jobs like selling t-shirts/hoodies. hahaha! and also other freelance job, amik gambo org kawin, design kad kawin and mekap pengantin! hahah!

    “say…i hate work, i hate work, i hate work!, fuck u!” -enslaved chaos.

  20. Joe Kidd says:

    Hafiz, just come lah and i try to get you free pass from the organisers, as long as you’ll give them access to the pictures lah. I think they’ll be fine with that.

  21. Joe Kidd says:

    I second Nizang’s frustration. been working at home for some outside designing jobs and it’s taking me away from the shop! shit. there’s a lot of new stuff at the shop tapi tak sempat nak review for you people. if you are at the show on sunday, come down and visit lah.

    Hi to everyone Who came to the Farewell party last nite.Its been great to Had everyone in the pit were having fun chillin together,regardless of colours,gender,age and principles that we live.We didn’t have enough time to say goodbye to everyone we see at the shows,to show how flattered we are seeing the atmosphere filled with joy,laughter,moshing and singalong for 20 minutes of our sets. This is a moment that we will always treasure when we get old.

    Thanks to every bands that play today,you show lots of efforts for coming and playing for the sake of friendships,especially bands comes all the way from Singapore.This thanks also goes to all the kids that comes from all part of this country showing their participations.All these new faces are been appreciated.

    Sorry that we didn’t have enough time to argue or to debate about the scene politics that had been spreading around the country,since there are better things to talk about besides than sxe and Whos punkDIYHc or not over and over.Its about time that we look beyond these problems that stress over and reach out new faces that are basically going nowhere.Yet we still dont have solutions to all the problems in the world when explanantion didnt come in handy.Furthermore the earth is having problems and its been burn in every corner for the sake of these greedy corporations,eventually we got family that needed helps and most probably my family do want your help.No more hating eachother kids lets focus our anger on something else since theres lots of things to care about besides our code of ethics.

    Its not easy to reach this far,takes lots of patience and discipline to balance our walking for the edge.Yet we lost lots of money and time to get outside of this country.Risking jobs and future for the sake of Hardcore?In the other hand we dont care about our future looks likes seems we’ve been positive to know that this is our lifestyle and its gonna be another 10 years to go.Were not a perfect bands,since we didn’t have all the answer but we keep moving foward to be inspired and get inspired by the kids.We always keep our head low and talk after the shows.Communications always important for us here now and then.

    To all the kids we just wanna say that we appreciate everything from top to bottom of your actions,arranging shows,lending a place to crash,put up in your fanzine,compilations and buying our stuffs.It means so much to us,Thank you so much,See you guys after the tour.

    Second Combat put up a good show, yet again.

    I didn’t managed to check the other bands though. Had to take care of the shop all the way through, so thanks to The Civil Dude who took over the shop for a while so I can get my arse up there and check out Ein and gang. There’s a new drummer apparently and no Arwith who had gone ahead off to Eropah on Saturday.

    We had a bit of problem yesterday when the show went off the time limit, so we had to cut 2nd Combat’s set a bit. There’s a film show which was scheduled at 8pm and the technicians wanted to start putting up their projector and screen at 7pm.

    Anyway, we managed to extend it till 7.45pm, and clear up the space immediately after. Everybody worked really fast, taking the drums and amps and PA out of the room in a flash and then clean up the space a bit.

    So with the help of everybody the film show managed to get going pretty much without hassle. Thanks to everyone who helped for that.

    One thing for sure though, I think 2nd Combat should have played a much longer set, fitting for a farewell but… I think everyone enjoyed it anyway. I did.

    I managed to pay the sound equipment (their fee is usually RM400) but they took RM150. That’s cool, also because the band’s crew brought their own amps. Paid for the room (actually RM400 for the upstairs) but I got it for RM300, and my shop took RM100 for our side of work. So everything worked fine in the end.

    I heard from Ein that all the bands played for free, so the rest of the money goes to the band for the tour, and i thought that it’s freaking sweet. I wish I could have forfeited my part but shit man, we need pay the shop’s rent this month!

    Thanks to everyone. And have a good trip boys!
