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.
alamak..lambat sgt, dh nk masuk keje. huhu..kalu tidak mesti sanggup meredah jem lg! 😉
da part two da kan?
sekejap je mase belalu!

dgr cite polis datang? betul ke? pe cite?
takde pong polis?
yeap, dlm 5 org polis dtg. test urine dlm 20 org (die pilih2 jer). mule2 15 camtu… diorang pilih2 tgk muke. pastu nak cukup kuota, pilih lg 5. hanya 4 org yg urine test die tak naik pastu kene angkut gi balai (siap kene gari tu!)…ade 2-3 org yg berjaya tukar/pinjam air kencing member yg tak main barang…anyway…ape2 pun…lepas polis blah, kitorang sambung lagi 3 band…
mungkin terlampau bnyk band (12 bands)…jadi, gig lame sgt menyebabkan org sekeliling tak tahan dan komplen. aku pun takleh nak buat ape…seme band nak main…
ps: lenkali pegi gig bawak IC. sekian.
owh! polis? brayok mok!
aku dok dang nok gi boss. after singgah sebentar outside the venue aku gi jumpa Ku Yie (now married and bukak cafe-cum-infoshop ugama!), then sior-sior kat Kg. Cina (beli batik!), then with Ku Yie and wife in another car, kami gi hala ke Ngabang Telipot. Visit Abrocore’s nice family (while Abrocore himself was at the gig!) and then to an old friend’s house (huge The Smiths fan, now a lecturer) nearby, so by the time kami head back to KT doh around pukul 9pm.
Abrocore OK dok? ke kena urine?
