About Us

FIRST OF ALL, the shop is temporarily CLOSED. To those who have been going to our old addresses in the city of Kuala Lumpur, we apologise. We should have informed you people and put up the news here ages ago.

Anyway, RICECOOKER is now a traveling entity; first we will be in the Philippines for five months, next Indonesia for another five months and the trip will end in late June in Japan. By our poor estimation, the shop will be up and running again at the end of 2014.

Those who wanna get in touch, just to hello or send us something (news, flyer, notice of a show, etc.), click here – write, send and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible.


Well, Ricecooker as a propagator of DIY music news and development has been a round for a long time. First as the DUNGPEOPLE mailing list (that was tied in with the Malaysian Underground yahoogroup) in the late-90s. This particular website you are reading has been around since 2004/2005. It became a proper (physical) store/shop in 2007 at the Annexe Building, behind the Central Market in the middle of Kuala Lumpur. We had a good run there for two years before we had to move out and became nomadic for a few years. And as you know now, the shop’s closed but the site lives on.

Cheers to all who have been with us; and a fond farewell to AIMAN who died early this year (February 2013).
