Finally, the design for the 2nd t-shirt is ready! Above is a preview of it; it will be printed in white ink on black/navy blue shirts. Limited quantities (from sizes XXS to XL) available.

Pre-orders not entertained. Look out for it at the fest!


DIY Femme Fest ’09 : The Programme

February 19, 2009

Do note that due to the nature of the fest, it will kick off at 12pm, so if you don’t want to miss out on anything, please don’t be late! Early birds will be getting free goodies at the door. There will also be yummy vegan food (whilst supplies last) for everyone.

Also, SELF-RIGHTEOUS BASTARDS will not be able to play the fest due to unforeseen circumstances (what a cliché, right, but what can we say?). Replacing them will be PAZAHORA, dark crust from Singapore. WEOT SKAM from Penang have also been added to the fest line-up; they will be opening the fest with a thrash!

Looking forward to see you there! It will be a blast.

Straightjacket Nation SE Asia Tour 2009

January 18, 2009


You might seriously regret not seeing Straightjacket Nation!

Straightjacket Nation is from Melbourne, Australia. This band which also features a member from PISSCHRIST and FAR LEFT LIMIT are influenced by 80’s hardcore-punk bands like VOID, URBAN WASTE, and VERBAL ABUSE, added with some rock and roll beats in their music. Their music style is intense with raw and crunchy sounds, screaming vocals and fast beats. Sounds a bit like LIMP WRIST but with rawer sounds for sure, for the kids that are crazy over thrash hardcore punk like TEAR IT UP, CUT THE SHIT, LIFE’S HALT, SCHOLASTIC DETH and bands on the 625 and Deranged labels shouldn’t miss their show!


Straightjacket Nation band ini berasal dari Melbourne/Australia, band yang juga salah satu personil nya adalah member dari PISSCHRIST dan FAR LEFT LIMIT ini sangat terinfluence dengan band-band hc/punk 80 an seperti VOID, URBAN WASTE dan VERBAL ABUSE dengan sedikit mencampur beat2 rock n rolla pada musik mereka. Raw n crunchy sound, scream vocal, beat cepat dan intense adalah ciri musik mereka. Sedikit terdengar seperti LIMP WRIST tapi dengan sound yang lebih rawwww tentunya. bagi kalian yang tergila-gila dengan Thrash hc/punk seperti TEAR IT UP, CUT THE SHIT, LIFE’S HALT, SCHOLASTIC DETH dan band-band era 625 Recs dan DERANGED Recs lain nya wajib untuk menonton show mereka.
