Sunday, 18th July 1999: The 4 Bucks Gig @ Sri Pelangi Poolside Hall, Segamat

These pictures are taken from the organiser’s facebook page ( Another fact: the organiser Boy was playing with Segamat’s punk band called SUBVERSIVE.

The highlights we can remember at this point:

a) the show was at a one-storey, covered and very hot hall/space, just beside a hotel’s swimming pool.
b) a bunch of skinheads from a nearby Felda plantation came up to us after the show and plied us with cheap liquor, talking about the many “fighting stories” from the Johor skinhead scene. Apparently they liked us because we were good friends with ACAB.
c) the organiser Boy brought us back to his house after the show and to our surprise, besides the Dung poster on the wall, his mother prepared us a sumptuous dinner featuring tonnes of fish!

all pixs above taken at Boy’s house. wonder where was our vocalist Lee at this time…

    Sorry for the comment ulv. it was not organised by Boy & his brother-in-law alone, it was organised by us, a few bunch of kids (at that time) and we called ourselves Very Fresh Underground (VFUG) who loved the idea of DIY, rebel, punk etc, whom trying to uplift the spirit of Segamat scene at that time. We have little knowledge organising a gig at that time, but we learnt. Nobody has done that before i guess. Tickets sold at RM4 per entry and come with drinks.

    Do you think it’s profitable? No. we did that because we love the scene. Until now, i can still remember that each band got only RM10/person (rasa bersalah until now). But we learnt a lot. Luckily, boy’s brother in law owned the equipments and we didn’t need to pay a single cent for that.

    Oh yes. I was there when Dung did the setup. The equipments were late because the unavailability of lorry, which at that morning was used to transport rubber to the kilang.

    Again, sorry to you Joe and for the rest of the band, for the RM10/person token. Next time when we met, i’ll belanja lunch. Yes, it was a very unorganised gig, and we are sorry for all the inconvenience caused.

    FYI, this is not “6strings of anger” gig. This is “4bucks” gig.

    This is what we called “organizer goyang kaki”. Yes… Boy is an organizer, but he was busy “organize” his hair with his brother in-law and some chicks. He not spent any money, energy and idea. Who’s setup all the equipment when his crews on the lunch? You guys did setup, carry and load, it’s really embarrassing when I saw Carburetor Dung do all the thing. They organizer (Boy) still at home doin his dreadlock. and really embarrassing when other bands like The Dirty Dogs walking 2km to train station, while CDung having fun at Boy’s home, after the show. I still remember Lee’s said “This is the worst show that i ever play”.
