we are not here just for music

Just now I was in the car with Zaki and we chatted about the scene, and as usual, the good old days and stuffs. We were talking about lack of zines nowadays and how the ethics are being left out by some of us who take hardcore and punk as just music.

Thus, I got an idea to make a campaign, a small campaign. How? At the back of each releases we're doing after this, we'll put a small line stating something like Nervhous and (insert band name) are totally against sexism, racism, fascism, and homophobic.

Well, Always Last already did it on their self-titled demo. Remember how Strange Culture Records always have this anti drugs abusing on each of their releases, yes something like that!

So, other labels can do the same, you know nowadays fanzines are rare to be seen at gigs. If there's any, some kids don't bother to buy and read them anyway. So, this way, I think maybe at least the kids can look up on the google the meaning of these words and not assuming that punk rock is all about going to shows, buy shirts and make a band only.

Give and Take featuring Bad Omen gig report


Thanks to the kids who came and made the Bad Omen show in KL a success yesterday. Bad Omen plus the frontman's wife and kid arrived at Pudu Termimal at 3pm. The gig started exactly at 4pm.
The band who kick-start the show was The Korok, a horror punk band, the latest addition in Nervhous family. They did some cover songs of the Misfits along with one own composition. I was busy at the door managing the entrance, so I only went in to take some photos.

Second band was Orange Free State who recently released their CDEP 'This City!', they played their songs from the CD and the crowd was chilling a bit with their noise pop. I was still busy at the door, and that's just my assuming, haha!
Up next was Cock Say Cock Dung from Kuala Terengganu. They played four songs from their recently release EP and two covers. I was invited to sing on those two covers; 'Lawan Diktataor' by Marjinal and 'Petrol Petrol Petrol' by DumDumTak. The crowds started to get more crazier and sang along.

Plague of Happiness brought along a friend from Japan, G-Sey and he played some songs acoustically for us.


The calm and soothing songs from G-Sey, was then changed with total heavy grinding madness by Spermblast. Crazy headbanging from the band members and crowd.

After hard-hitting grinding, we again calm down a bit with Polaris, a band who need no introduction in the post-rock (?) music scene. They also recently released an EP, and played songs from the EP and some old songs.
I missed to see Skunkfix's set but I watched the crazy set from the door. They played some new and old songs with Akmal (guitar hero punk rocker from T.I.M) as the guitarist. At this time, Tobek slammed and fell down so hard and he was resting in the car all the way after that and also was sent to hospital later that night. Wish he'll be okay.
After Skunkfix, Carburetor Dung played and followed by Plague of Happiness and Second Combat. As everyone is familiar with these bands set, I think I shouldn't elaborate more.

Finally, Bad Omen from Philippines took the stage and did the songs on their new album 'God is Everywhere' as well as some old songs. Mostly in English whilst some in their native language.

The gig ended at about 9.45pm with 100 people paid to enter. We gave some money to Bad Omen and Cock Say Cock Dung (who rented a Kenari to come to KL). The balance, we will give to our friend (RM300+), Fael who needs some money for his medication cost. Well, he needs a lot actually, but that's just some little portion we could give to his family. The idea to have a benefit gig for Fael atcually came from Nas of Plague of Happiness a couple of months ago.

Thanks to all the bands and kids who came, buy the stuffs on sale, selling some stuffs, helped here and there. See you guys at the next gig!

Indonesian skin/punks Party Time from Jakarta...

distro stuff review #3 -Nuisance Drilled 'All is well, Euphoric ending'

Nuisance Drilled on this recording consists of 3 members of Sarjan Hassan and 1 member from Banzai 606 which both are thrash core bands. But if you think this is another thrashcore band, you might be slightly wrong. They're more towards sludgecore with rocking guitar solos and vocals screaming as if he's seeing ghosts or maybe suffering unbearable pain. Hahah!

This CDEP contains 6 tracks with samples from 'Enam Jahanam' movie between each song. A very 'artistic' and 'conceptual' EP. Come in digipack with the frontman's artwork scattered all over the inlay.

Final sample is a revenge conversation from the movie, probably showing the revenge of the band after waiting too long to release this CD.
