Artist Biography Available in: Carburetor Dung is a punk rock band based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Most of the band members are “veterans” of the Malaysian underground / DIY / Indie music scene; people who has been active since the birth of that scene back in the mid-80s.
The band was formed somewhere in late 1991. Throughout the years they have released one album (Songs for Friends, 1993) and a mini-album (The Allure of Manure, 1999); along with a 7” single in 2000 and many tracks on many compilations all over the globe.
Musically, the band started out playing original melodic, sing-a-long street-punk but has since progressively getting faster, harder and darker with each new release, incorporating nuances of hardcore punk and recently. avant-garde jazz trimmings.
On the lyrical front, the band mixes localised political rants with personal ruminations. Recently the band started to sing in Bahasa instead of the usual English.
A new bunch of recordings was recorded in 2007, but it they were unreleased. They are currently being mixed and mastered to be released in late 2010.
