Valley Of The Dead
Killeur Calculateur seem dedicated to pissing everyone off. The four members of Smek and Rafique (vocals, guitars), Zamir (vocals, bass) and Alijo (drums) that make up this Malaysian post-punk/math core band have no doubt infuriated spelling bee fascists with their band name, while their cacophonic approach to music will certainly have horrified “sophisticated listeners” who insist that crotchets and quavers should be consumed on spiffy white plates, and with silver spoons. Surely this is bad maths?
It is surely not. For sheer eccentricity alone, Killeur Calculateur deserve multiple bonus marks. And as their relentless gigging has demonstrated, they are no mere contrarians. The band are fiercely dextrous in the arena of shifting time signatures, and utterly audacious in their deconstruction of traditional AB-AB song structures (theirs is more AB-WTF, or thereabouts). The initial novelty of watching Smek and Zamir exchange screeches during performances is often replaced by awe over the complex musical bustle being crammed into mere minutes.
Yet after three years and a couple of demos, the band’s latest EP Valley Of The Dead represents a different kind of challenge. Live, audiences at a Killeur Calculateur gig are so often mesmerised by the raw power on display that there is a tendency to ignore the presence of any actual song (heck, they could be squawking about their breakfast menu, for all anyone knows). But on record, stripped of the sight of perpetually gyrating men, the tunes are subject to tighter aural scrutiny. Is all that belly-belching really just a gimmicky shroud for amateurism?
Let’s start with the EP’s length: a ridiculously short nine minutes. Post-rock bands have entire songs longer than that, damn it. Yet by keeping things so brief, Killeur Calculateur manage to perk interest without overpromising. Opener ‘Mother Of Destruction’ throws some post-punk jabs without settling on a kille(u)r hook while ‘Tigers Gone Ape’ leaves just enough room at its backend for some gang shouted refrains of “You’re gonna get it!”. They’re lying, of course; we’ll never get it, but such ignorance only fuels the moshing flames.
Like the cover that pays homage to cruddy zombie B-movies, Valley Of The Dead spares little sympathy for anything remotely polished. A bulbous trumpet (courtesy of Aziz from experimental band Ciplak) seems to pare down the lunacy in ‘Slow Death’–until it too accelerates into dissonance, perhaps lured by those obnoxious guitar interjections that blared while it was trying to carve out some semblance of melody.

dua tahun pertama CD
Malaysia isn't a place immidiately springs to mind when thinking about the international hotbeds of hardcore punk. In truth its not really a place that springs to mind when thinking about any genre of pop music. Kias Fansuri might be about to change all that, though. Explosive screamo loaded with fearsome guitars, Dua Tahun Pertama is an incendiary blast of scattergun punk that goes some way to prove that a band from a supposed rock backwater can be just as fresh and exciting as anyone from the States or Europe.From the acid-drenched blast of opener "Unhand The Crayonic Beast" to the sound barrier shattering rampage of closer "Forum Mati Pat Pat Siku Lipat". It's an extraordinary release indeed. With a number of self-released singles, demos, and contributions to compilation albums ( including the wonderfully titled Emo Apocalypse LP ), Kias Fansuri are emerging as one of Malaysia's most exciting rock'n'roll exports. Bold, vibrant, and utterly uncompromising, Dua Tahun Pertama - an anthology of compilation and tour CD-R tracks - is contemporary psych-core at its purest. An album of atmostpherics rather than songs, it's a frighteningly enjoyable blast of Far Eastern punk fire.

Until this moment, I never knew there was a screamo scene in Malaysia.After a bit of internet research, my ignorance has been completely exposed.Not only are there a fair amount of Malaysian screamo bands, a lot of it is quiet good.Take KIAS FANSURI, for example.Featuring ex-member of UTARID ( another band I was unfamiliar with until now), they play in a style that should make fans of SHIKARI , FUNERAL DINER or NEIL PERRY feel right at home. Most of the lyrics are in English, with obscure titles such as "Would You Like To Taste My Homemade Morgue?" and "Love Lost Butterscotch" , while one is in their native Malay.This CD collects their first two years of releases, including a demo tape, a comp track, a four-way split 10", a split 7" and, strangest of all, a split 3.5" floppy disk. Since you'd probably have a good deal of trouble tracking all of those down,just pick up this CD instead.- (XV) XYosefX - Maximum Rock & Roll issue 309
