BRAYOK covering DUNG’s cover of HIJRAH/THE PILGRIMS’ “Johnny (Punk Not Death)”

Saya Kassim Selamat,
Ingin saya memohon,
Menjadi seorang,
Ahli Kelab Underground,

Stuff saya tak banyak,
Nanti saya kan cari,
Yang penting disini,
Nak join sekaki,

Johnny, Johnny, Johnny,
Harapan kami tinggi,
Tolong, tolonglah kami
Harap hasrat kami, direstui!

(solo two verse)

Saya sudah lama,
Join pergi tengok gig,
Bila ada kaset,
Semuanya saya beli,

Wahai, Tuan Johnny,
Kami tidak mengerti,
Kenapa tak sediakan,
Borang ahli untuk kami?

Johnny, Johnny, Johnny,
Janganlah rip-off kami,
Tolong, tolonglah kami
Terima kasih,
Punk Not Death!

THE SHITWORKERS – Live Tape Found!


Live tracks from two Shitworkers shows in 2000 found in a box of junk. The sound is good! Pretty intense stuff. We believe the first show is with ANNALISE (UK) when we supported then here in KL. The second live show could be a show we did with some others at a club in Ampang.

The Shitworkers were Joe – guitars/vocals, Fendi – bass and Bullet – drums. We didn’t play that many shows, so this tape is quite a find.

Will digitize and share soon.

Another Review of Inginku Rejam LP (A Pretty Late One!)

“”Inginku Rejam Raksasa Kejam!” nyata sebuah produk Punk Rock yang tulen karismanya, luhur pengisiannya, rebel secukup rasa: politikal, radikal & sinikal. Aura Punk DUNG terang benderang, jelas terpampang, teratur dan tidak sesekali berterabur. Inilah Punk Rock yang duduk, berdiri dan berlari dalam ertikata Punk sebenar! Riff gitarnya bermelodi ringkas, kedengaran keras, tersusun dalam aturan 3 atau 2 kord, sekali-sekala diselit solo gitar yang benar-benar menggambarkan tebalnya sifat berontak! Ditambah dengan nyanyian-nyanyian bertenaga dan bermesej, DUNG seakan mengajak pendengar untuk bangkit dan beranjak! Berubah untuk diri, merubah untuk semua! Mereka yang pasif mungkin melihat ini negatif, mereka yang masif pasti mengangkat ini positif. Ini kali-lah!”

“No One Gets Out Alive!” teaser promo

Here a taste of the benefit single we’ve been working on. Final mix this week.

The Gibran Song Session #01

On Saturday 21st December 2014 Joe, Fendi & Bullet worked on a song written way back in 1996 and here’s a teaser: two minutes intro to the total six minutes.

The origins of the Gibran Song goes back to when Lee Pilgrims joined us as replacement for Shahlan in the mid-90s. It was also a time when many of us were deeply affected by books of Khalil Gibran’s poems and writings. Joe wrote the song, complete with lyrics and auditioned it to both Fendi & Lee at his house. We recorded the session with Joe on an electric guitar and singing with Fendi bashing lines on an acoustic guitar, while Lee do bits of backing vocals.

The band tried working on the song with our old drummer Ollie when we were constantly jamming at the small rehearsal studio on Jalan Maarof, Bangsar (across the railway line from Brickfields where we lived). Twice we tried to make sense of it but it didn’t work out. The song was then discarded and forgotten.

Somehow in the mid of 2000s, Joe found the recording and digitized it with the mind that it should be worked on and recorded properly. This only happened last Saturday at KerbauWorks.

At the moment, we are still working on it – some changes need to be done in terms of sections of the song, while the lyrics itself needs an overhaul.

Thanks for listening.

note: the show managed to raise RM 1070, thanks to all involved. The money was transferred to the Human First Collective for their relief work in the areas of Cukai, Kemaman and Kuantan.
