Halfway thru Hanturaya Putrajaya:
more to come!
A project initiated by Marty of Jerk Off Records (California) somewhere in the middle of 2010 but only recently taking proper roots and now finally available for sale via interpunk and Jerk Off Records.
Marty first contacted us in June 2010, with a plan to have MDC, DUNG & an Indonesian punk band called HA! HA! HA! contributing to a split-CD with a few tracks each. However a month later, HA! HA! HA! proved to be hard to get in touch with, so Marty contacted Tom (yes, our Tom) for a few of THE BOLLOCKS tracks. Thus it became quite an incestuous affair with Tom’s old band in it!
By September, we started work on it proper with emails a-blazing. Come October 2010, SBS Records in Ohio joined in, so it became a split-label release between Jerk Off & SBS. However work brought Joe away from this project until January this year where he started doing the preliminary cover & t-shirt designs and such. After which Joe went AWOL again for a lot work he had on his plate. The work on the CD resumed in June 2011 and finally done (poster, CD sleeve & t-shirt designs) in August.
The CD is now available from:
* the poster above is free with early birds ordering from Interpunk, along with a t-shirt, we heard.
Here’s Joe’s t-shirt designs which will be available from SBS Records soon:
WHEN WILL THE CDs AVAILABLE IN MALAYSIA?
Well, DUNG will be getting some, while The Ricecooker Shop will also order them for sale. We are expecting it to be next month (November 2011).
WHICH DUNG SONGS ARE ON IT?
DUNG contributed four songs:
1) Mata Buta
2) Hanturaya Putrajaya
3) Mari Nyanyi Menjilat
4) Johnny (Punk Not Death!)
The first two are from the 2007 Inginku Rejam Raksasa Kejam LP session, while Mari Nyanyi Menjilat is from Radio Malaya compilation and Johnny from the rare The Dude Puked On My Lap CD-R compilation. All the tracks re-leveled and mastered by Craigums (CONQUEST FOR DEATH/WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?/YOUR MOTHER) – that said, we haven’t heard the results just yet so we can’t comment!

Nothing to apologise, says punk rock band
July 08, 2008 UPDATED
By Wan Hamidi Hamid and Shannon Teoh
from: Malaysian Insider
Carburetor Dung gave a ‘lively’ performance at the rally.
KUALA LUMPUR, July 8 — For Malaysia’s seminal punk rock band Carburetor Dung, the ruckus during its performance at the anti-fuel price increase rally in Kelana Jaya, Petaling Jaya yesterday was just a misunderstanding.
Band leader Joe Kidd explained that there was no need for them to apologise over the song “Mari Nyanyi Menjilat” or lead singer Alak pulling down his jeans to show off his boxer shorts to the mainly Malay audience at the Kelana Jaya Stadium.
“The song which is well known among our fans is about anti-corruption. It has nothing to do with the current political issue such as the allegation of sodomy against Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.
“We’ve always played that song without any incidents. I guess to people who’ve never seen us, it’s a culture shock for them. But for us, we’ve been writing and performing anti-establishment songs for many years,” he told The Malaysian Insider.
Arguably the first punk rock band in the country, Carburetor Dung was formed in 1991. The 43-year-old Joe Kidd is also regarded as a veteran of the alternative music scene in Malaysia, paving the way for hundreds of young bands to emerge a decade later.
Writing in the band’s website yesterday, he explained: “Some reports I saw also misquoted the title as ‘Liwat’ instead of ‘Jilat’, so if some bloggers made the mistake, I’m sure a lot of the people in the stadium misunderstood too. So many took umbrage lah, thinking that we were making fun of Anwar. Actually I even explained to the crowd the gist of the song before we played it.”
The band’s bass player Fendi said that the singer would explain every song before blasting into their three-chord frenzy.
“I guess it is up to the political parties and their supporters to think about the whole issue. If freedom of expression is on the agenda, if the parties are supposed to be different from that of the ruling coalition, they have to decide the future of freedom,” he said.
PKR Youth’s Balik Pulau MP Yusmadi Yusoff defended the band’s right to freedom of expression, saying that from this the organisers — Coalition Against Inflation (Protes) — could learn how to prepare their events with more coherence.
“There is no standard form of expression for everyone. But the organisers need a coherent strategy to have an effective campaign. We must encourage a conducive environment for all stakeholders, and for an underground band, perhaps we should have agreed on a song or songs that most resonated with our agenda,” he said.
PAS Youth chief Salahuddin Ayub, however, said it would be unfair to lay all the blame solely on Protes, noting that activist Hishamuddin Rais who had engaged performers for the event had taken responsibility for the mishap.
“Everyone has a right to freedom of expression but we still need to look at the sensitivities of people. As we can all agree, the singer pulling down his pants was an embarrassing event,” he said.
Yusmadi stressed that in the end everyone came back to hear Pakatan supremo Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim speak, showing that there was common ground for all. “I guess we learnt that as a society, we still need to learn how to negotiate our plurality.”
Selangor Menteri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim yesterday remarked that it was all done in the spirit of the “protest event. So while we protested fuel prices, members of the audience were also protesting against the behaviour of the band.”
Meanwhile, the band will continue to play whenever and wherever it is needed, without having to compromise its stance, Fendi added. For example, crowd favourites like “Oppression” and “Boo Hoo Clapping Song” offer their take on social issues such as political hypocrisy and lack of freedom in the country.
Carburetor Dung has been involved in social causes over the years, working with Food Not Bombs which helps to feed the homeless in the city and performing at the annual Press Freedom Day concert.
We had good fun but the waiting was quite an ordeal.
Manan drove us down to JB with his spacious and uber-comfy Estima van. Fits eight people with tonnes of legroom. The airconditioning requires a good day-jacket to warm you up sufficiently, but that’s what made it so comfy. Bebe, Shammir & Atia tagged along with us.
This is the scene at about 3pm on the 4th floor (AKA the “3A Floor”) of the City Plaza, in JB. The gang sat at the middle table. All around us there were merch tables. On the left side (out of the pix), inside the recesses in the wall was the stage. The stage area filled up at anytime. Kids in JB supports whatever band playing!
We had a great time playing at the WWF’s Art For Nature 2008 Fund Raising which took place at the unlikely venue (for punk rock); the spread-mungous Rimbun Dahan estate in Kuang, Selangor last night.
The show took place at the ground floor of one of the houses there. The space looks out into the open, surrounded by man-made water catchment with the audience sitting pretty far out on the landings and stairs.
The night started with tonnes of food, drinks and good company. At around 10pm, Gasoline Grenade started the show, followed with Alak and Ikin’s acoustic trio The Pip (with Farhana on vocals). After which we played, ending with a jam with our favourite skronk-people; Ah Tham & Yandsen – doing our Stooges version AKu Mau Jadi Anjing Mu!
Both Ah Tham & Yandsen continued on as EMACM with Azmyl Yunor on drums and Siew-Wai on pipes. The night ended with the crazy antics of Ciplak, with Aziz wading the water trying revive his fire-starter stick. Yeah, he was spitting fire all over the place.
Here are some pictures taken by Farhana:
