Joe Kidd to co-host Penang launch on 16 January

I’m stoked to announce that Joe Kidd, guitarist of Malaysia’s seminal punk band CARBURETOR DUNG, will be co-hosting a NUSANTARA Forum with me in Penang on 16 January! The event has been organised by Gerak Budaya Penang and Penang Institute, and hosted by Gareth Richards… thanks folks!

Nusantara Marco

We will discuss my experience in the Malaysian scene and the struggle of doing underground in shackled Southeast Asian societies… be there or be square!!

Here is Joe’s bionote:  “Joe Kidd is a writer, designer, musician, youth subculture researcher and music archivist. He plays guitar in one of the oldest Malaysian punk bands CARBURETOR DUNG (aka DUNG) and has been actively involved in the regional DIY hardcore-punk scene since its nascent beginnings in the late 70s. As an Asian Public Intellectual Fellow, Joe recently completed his research and academic paper on the History of Southeast Asian Punk. He is currently writing a book on the subject while setting up a comprehensive  Southeast Asian youth subculture archive.” Check out Joe’s Ricecooker website here.

And I’ll leave you with some CARBURETOR DUNG, of course!
