Video of the Week: Pusher


September 7th, 2010 by

This video from Kuala Lumpur’s PUSHER comes to us via the Malaysian collective Knot Records, which seems to have its heart in the right place. They give this description of the video:

“Radio On Fire!” is essentially about the fall of the corporate music industry which not only exploits the listeners but also destroys the creative freedom for people to create music. Basically ‘Radio’ here is an analogy referred to all these major labels that are threatened by the emerged of lots of D.I.Y labels today, simply proves that anybody could appreciate and enjoy music without conforming to their ways. The revolution of ‘punk rock’ itself since the 70’s, in a way is the main factor that drove almost everybody to be self-empowered enough and go against the corporate game. This is a track from Pusher’s “Our Beloved City Of The Dead” CD released in 2010.

They also had this other video posted, which we liked a lot. Terima kasih!

definitely one of the best punk bands active in the Malaysian DIY scene now. do check out THE GARRISON, CRIMESCENE, THE PIPS, SARJAN HASSAN, ALWAYS LAST, KESUMAT, RELATIONSHEEP, KHAYALL, APPARATUS, FREYGYLE, OSMANTIKOS, DAIGHILA, DUM DUM TAK, THE MINDLESS SHOW, etc. etc.

We’re in Malaysia are blessed to have all these guys and girls! So many great bands but too little attention being paid to them. Thanks for highlighting this.

The was a time when MRR was the source for many of us to check out bands/scenes from the usual coverage of the US/EUROPE/JAPAN axis-of-punk-rock; we sincerely hope it would go back to those hey-days of global coverage.

cheers!

Tis an exciting time for Malaysian Punk Rock. A bit like the early 80s in the US. KNOT certainly are there and thereabout.. as trics said, too little attention being paid to this part of the world.

You are always welcome to submit something! Everything in MRR was sent in by punks like you. Why not do it and represent Indonesian punk in MRR yourselves?

Gee, thanks for this great post!

i’ve been in Malaysia for this recent month and can’t seem to dig where these great punks been hiding. All i found was some crappy kids with em mtv weirdo makeover. Dang! Now I know they exist.

Different from the times i spent in Indonesia. Punks were everywhere and you get to go all these crazy shows.

Good one lads!
