The launch at 216 Beach Street last November 28th was a succcess!!
Thanks to Gerak Budaya, Penang Institute and George Town Literary Festival for letting us bring some punk rawk into their programme!
Speedwitches, the Garrison, ANGKARA and Coma rocked it out pretty hard… see this short clip from ANGKARA‘s performance to get an idea.
Did you get your copy of the book yet?
Kota Kinabalu’s DEATHEVOKER is one of my favourite Malaysian death metal bands. Their song ‘Thirst of the Guillotine’ is featured in the Banana Punk Rawk Trails CD sampler.
Hear more of their remorse-less tunes here… ‘The Silence’. I love the punk-powered, galloping drum work here. Definitely a band to keep an eye – or an eye socket – well open upon as you cruise through the global metal wasteland. After having split releases with the likes of Mark Riddick’s FETID ZOMBIE, a new platter is in the works.
Damn CDs and their limits in duration, as this meant that one of my favourite Malaysian bands, COMA, could not fit in. Their mammooth extended stony-drony suites were just too long to be featured in the CD included with the book.
Well, I am making it up to them here. Sit back. Relax. Free your minds. And enjoy the gloom.
