Every month JUICE gets down with a trendsetting, jetsetting type and asks them to unearth their favourite people, places and things. This month, Killeur Calculateur drummer Ali Johan tells us what bangs his skins.
THE WKND SESSIONS
I work on this project. We’re a collective of very keen individuals who document diverse types of music in the local community. The online medium makes it easy for a lot of people to check it out. It’s straight up and easy enough for people who care to look for local music. www.the-wknd.com.
JOHAN & ZIZAN
These guys crack me up all the time. They’re like the Too Phat of Malaysian comedy.
SHOCK & AWE
A zine by some of the most thoughtful individuals in the punk scene. Articles range from personal to confrontational, with ballsy and honest reviews to boot. The gigs they put together are great fun as well. Good stuff!
I’m always on the lookout for good nasi kandar. Of late my favorite ones have either suffered from a drop in standards or have closed down. And not all mamaks with a “Restoran Nasi Kandar” sign are legit nasi kandar joints. Crucial part of my life!
MEDIAFIRE + RAPIDSHARE
Checkin’ out new music have never been easier! These pirates wear cyber eye patches.
Bike shop/cafe/design studio owned by friends of mine. Food is good and it’s got a very easy going vibe.
FOOTBALL MANAGER 2011
Hooked on this since I was 14. Many days have passed without shower.
Youtube is massive. I use it for work and leisure. It’s crazy how the things you find on it extend to the extreme ends of the spectrum. It’ll be hours until I realise I’ve been jumping from one video to another. Sounds familiar, no?
