DUNG (aka Carburetor Dung)
– an ancient specimen of Malaysian punk rawk still surviving from early 90s; this is basically because they are too lazy to move on to ‚Äúbetter and bigger‚Äù things. DUNG have gone through a lot of different phases since then; from melodic, singalong street-punk popular with toddlers to mellow, cringe-worthy acoustic moments with loud, blaring hardcore-punk of their own interpretation in-between.
– a lively crew of late 20s playing a mix of The Clash‚Äôs anthemic firebrand punk rock and the more modern ghetto-blasting influences from the 90s Gilman St. Scene with a bit of reggae and hard-blues stabbed hard somewhere in their guts. Recently released their much-awaited debut album entitled ‚ÄúOur Beloved City of the Dead‚Äù; a tribute to this metropolis of ours, especially its zombiefied useless inhabitants.
– a relatively new addition to the stubborn local DIY punk rock scene but one of the most promising. THE GARRISON is a collision of raw classic punk rock sound of the late ‚Äò70s, spiced up with hard, dirty skanking reggae. A full-length album is in the works but a taster is available in the recently released CD-R EP called Flooding Blood.
SWAMPY ZOMBIE FEVER
– freshly-baked mysterious disease by hyperactive youngster Aiman, who is DUM DUM TAK‚Äôs drummer and the mainman for FRU & CIVIL DISORDER. This band is so new we don‚Äôt even know how it sounds like. But knowing Aiman, we know it‚Äôs gonna be rockin‚Äô

Note; DUNG may play two sets, an acoustic and then electric one, that is if their bones and joints would not seize up.
