Mallaria

Mallaria is Malaysia's earliest punk band. Started out back in 1986 in the city of Kuala Terengganu[?], Terengganu with a four-song demo out by 1987. Never made it to a proper recording studio though but drummer Shahlan[?] went on to form another early Malaysian punk band called The Stone Crows[?].

In the early 90s he ended up playing and recording with Carburetor Dung[?] - one of the oldest Malaysian punk band still existing, while guitarist Ku Yie[?] maintains a rehearsal/jamming studio in the town to this day, helping out young bands with demo recordings and providing space for the scene. Through-out the years he played but never recorded with bands such as PROV[?], DPSA[?] and Zink[?].

His brother Ku Din[?], the bassist of the band, briefly reappeared in a popular Malay rock band (Panji[?]) in the late 80s. Mallaria's sound was a mixture of thrash metal/punk crossover and was quite ahead of its time. The highly sought after one and only demo is still missing.
