    Since Amat /Asas will never appeared himself here, me Pijan on behalf of him as the Chief-of-Audio-Reviewer for RC zine would like to call you up all of you -the audio reviewers for the RC zine to show up at the shop more often and finish your reviews section before end of this month. Please inform us early if you can’t come over so we should talk for other options or else you’ll be screwed by Amat!
    Thanks to all our friends who always hang out inside /outside the shop pretty regularly and cheer-up the place!(they’re too punk to get their names here). Thank you.
    Dead’s not punks. Kill poseurs.

    I love Denials…. they were noisy, the crowd didn’t get them, the bartenders gave nasty looks… it was beautiful….

    I never watched DENIAL at both show though Tony(their guitarist) keep asking me to show up more earlier but I was just stuck upon the booze in Noisy Studio’s Girls Fest featuring 97-Shiki from Chicago on Saturday then kind of late on Sunday(yeah Ricecooker Shop matters, it’s very busy on Sunday) to catch them at Cloth&Clef. I don’t wanna sound greedy, I’ rather see a live band that such punkrock attitude as Crimpshrine /Screeching Weasel /Sweet Children / Generator/ Stikky /Your’fukin’mother /Shotwell /Pinhead Gunpowder /FYP /Toys That Kill etc but no such scene ever happened in this country.
    Yeah, that’s what happened to the local indie pop scene that doesn’t meet up people like Joe’s highly expectation. I’m sorry I’m not proficiently grew up with stuff like Jesus&the Mary Chain or My Bloody Valentine though I really love Out Of My Hair (does anybody listen to them?) and I’m more Velvet Underground than Beatles, more Pixies than Nirvana! Apparently there’s these kind of huge gaps between i.e Kuala Lumpur & Jakarta indie-pop /indie-rock /shoegaze scene. When I talked to indie-musician from Indonesia especially the guy from The Brandals, they seem to know everything from metal to 77′ punk to pop punk to rap to sXe HC to glam rock damn crazy! Rully from The Brandals even labeled me as ‘pussy’ when I mentioned to him I used to like The Postal Services, Arcade Fire and Belle&Sebastian etc hehe..shit on u Rully..Apart from the population comparison between these two countries, I think the Indonesian people are more open-minded. it’s clearly this kind of mental blocked by the society (especially people who always regard on Islamic value extremely) in this country and give us no freedom at all at any seconds to think for ourselves and let’s ignorance on race /religious issue leading their way of living..
    Ohh no way, I won’t write anymore longer…fuk I never realized that! Chow!

    hopefully we’re entering the ‘ricecooker zine era’, an era that will give a big impact to the local scene (and beyond). like how the ‘blasting concept era’ gave a very big impact and changed many kids’ lifes 13 years ago. hopefully it’s open-minded (in music genres) like BC too. it’s hard to turn the clock back and make the scene happening like how ‘The Bollocks ‘revoultion’ ep gave a big impact towards the local scene 10 years ago until got pirated versions of it for rm9.90 to rm15 while the original version is only RM3.

    probably i’ve been thinking too much about ‘impact to the scene’ lately while those glorious days are long gone and will never come back
