Xerpent is a boy band from Malaysia with four good looking young members and they aim to be the best boy band in town. Xerpent is playing the most trendy music in late 90s, *R&B music. Xerpent is heavily influenced by the pop culture from Taiwan and Hong Kong, and they are a big fan of Jay Chou. You will find Xerpent's music easy to digest as it is played with extremely simple, repeating riffs and lyrics. However, you will find the lyrics and vocals incomprehensible as the vocalist imitates his idol, Jay Chou's singing style. Sadly, Xerpent has been banned in competitions and appearance in local TV network. With great disappointment, they turn to indie scene, hoping to be discover and gain their fame. *R&B = Raw & Brutal

Info: Rescue Merdeka Review Gig is a indie music fundraising & charity performance to uphold independent voice (merdekareview.com) in Malaysia. Nurul Izzah is one of the nine acts of the show. About Nurul Izzah: Nurul Izzah binti Anwar (born November 19, 1980) is a Malaysian politician from Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR), and is the current Member of Parliament for Lembah Pantai. She is the daughter of Anwar Ibrahim, a former Malaysian Deputy Prime Minister and the current de facto opposition leader and of the PKR. After her father's arrest in 1998 on charges of sodomy and graft, Nurul Izzah campaigned for his release, speaking at international venues against the actions of the Malaysian government. In the 2008 general election, Nurul Izzah contested the seat of Lembah Pantai in Kuala Lumpur, which was contested by three candidates. There were speculations that she ran for the seat with the intention of handing it over to her father, who was disqualified from running for office until April 2008, though she quickly rejected such claims. The seat was defended by three-term incumbent Shahrizat Abdul Jalil, who was Minister for Women, Family and Community Development in the Barisan Nasional government. Initial reports suggested that Shahrizat would retain the seat, as she had been a popular Minister, and in the 2004 election retained her seat with a majority of 15,288. However, on polling day, Nurul Izzah won 21,728 votes to Shahrizat's 18,833, and was elected as the new MP for Lembah Pantai. The defeat of the powerful three-term incumbent by a new face was one of the many surprises in the 2008 election, which saw significant losses of parliamentary seats by the ruling party. In November 2010, Nurul Izzah was elected one of the Vice Presidents of Parti Keadilan Rakyat.

They've been around and kicking the dead horse for more than a decade now. The Dung strives to save our wonderful world from those who mercilessly laugh at all the nice things like flowers, peace, love & understanding...

Straddling the line between the classic punk energy of the legendary Fugazi and today’s manic metal/hardcore upstarts System Of A Down, you get the hard-hitting outfit NAO. Arguably the best band in the current Malaysian local Chinese independent scene, their politically charged live set, with its fair share of double pedal thumping, funkoid metal interludes, jarring dual guitar hammerings and spirited vocals, had fists pumping the air in glory. Never far from voicing out social concerns and addressing anti-racial issues through its punk template, the band is rare breed unafraid of hitting a raw nerve.

Info: Rescue Merdeka Review Gig is a indie music fundraising & charity performance to uphold independent voice (merdekareview.com) in Malaysia. The Maharajah Commission is one of the nine acts of the show. The Maharajah Commission is one of the rare Kuala Lumpur outfits confidently independent and punk enough to exploit its individuality and freedom. With mostly deconstructionist rock and exploratory instrumental jams, the band's debut Dialogue Amoureux (Monkey Records/AGE, 2003) is a sinister and unrepentant work of free-form experimentation that defies description. It's got the quirk of Pavement, some gripping Slint, the low key of Silver Mt Zion and a dash of John Zorn in the midst of the ever-evolving clatter that allows for a collision of broken down indie-rock, ragged folk, twisted jazz and whatever the anarchist fancies that fall in between the cracks.
