#8: Indra Menus (Jogja Noise Bombing, To Die, Narcholocos, LKTDOV)
Today I'm speaking with Indra Menus, one of the founding members of the Jogja Noise Bombing collective. Indra has been active in the Jogja underground music scene for a long time now with many many projects, including his major noise project To Die, which, as I found out doing this interview, started out as a pop-punk cover band. He also sings in the post-hardcore band LKTDOV and his new hardcore punk band Narcholocos. Recently he has also been collaborating with the rapper Joe Million. They've released two records together and recently completed a European tour. Indra has also toured extensively in Southeast Asia and I think it's fair to say that there are a few cities in Indonesia which now have pretty active noise scenes because of his influence.
This is the third of three interviews I'm doing with members of the Jogja Noise Bombing collective. The Jogja Noise Bombing festival for 2020 is happening this weekend in Yogyakarta on the 25th and 26th. I will be there so if you're listening and coming along, please say hi, if I don't know you already. It would be great to chat. I also have a short documentary film screening on the first night. It's about the group Sarana, who are an experimental group from Samarinda in East Kalimantan. They're mentioned in this interview and I think were mentioned in last week's episode as well. If you won't be at the festival I'll have some details about how you can see that film coming up in the future.
