Monday Photo Blog: M Kugiran Jiwa


October 29th, 2012 by

M Kugiran Jiwa recently sent us a large batch of photos from a Subhumans performance in Singapore this past September. Choosing a few for this Monday Photo Blog was no easy task. I would like to run more, but believe you should always leave the audience wanting more. So, here are a few shots (of the many!) from the Goldkist Resort in Singapore on September 25, 2012 with the Subhumans (UK), Seven Crowns (UK), Dung (KL), and Enam Jahanam (SG). You can see more at gogonmedia.

Record of the Week: ABERGAZ ­ Minimalizam Megalomanije


October 24th, 2012 by

Our Record of the Week this time is actually a tape/download available from the band’s website at abergaz.bandcamp.com.

Man, this tape is a huge breath of fresh air, after reviewing so many predictable, stock, privileged bands — many of which are good, but simply lack the honesty, wit, intelligence, and passion that ABERGAZ demonstrates with this tape. On a first blind listen, the music is slickly recorded melodic hardcore punk with dramatically howled vocals and some weird parts. The closest comparison I can make would be Slovakian hardcore punk veterans DAVOVA PSYCHOZA — but I think many people looking for something familiar would struggle relating to this. (Am I being unfair to and judgmental about you, punks?) Anyways, ABERGAZ is from Zagreb, Croatia, and they are very expressive about what it means to be different (i.e., a punk) in a part of the world that has been divided into different countries by war, causing folks to be born with hostile mentalities toward neighboring regions. The four-panel fold-out tape insert translates and explains in English the meanings of all 17 of their songs. I keep trying to choose some of the great topics they sing about to give you an idea, but it’s so hard to pick just a few, and I just can’t type ’em all here, so I really urge you to track this down and fucking get into it and connect with it. Don’t just download it, fucking write them and connect with them and get the whole package the way it was meant to be, and interact with it. Support genuine punks who put three years of effort and all of their energy and money into releasing this. This is the kind of shit that gets me pumped about reviewing new, unknown punk music. Or hell, just pumped to engage in an international punk network where we can share our stories and ideas, support, relate to, and learn from each other. Okay, I think I’ve made myself clear here — ­ put away your INFERNÖH or HOAX record for a minute and spend a little time on ABERGAZ.

Monday Photo Blog: Poison Idea at Gilman! Well, from a long time ago…


October 22nd, 2012 by

Herbert from Holland has provided these photos this installment of the Monday Photo Blog . They were originally shot by Michael Waldhart sometime in the 1980s. After looking at the band, check out the graffiti in the background, and see if you are in, or recognize anyone in the audience. We will be posting some blasts from the past from Herbert very soon.
