Always Last NOT playing Theoretical Chaos!

"We are very-very sorry to inform that ALWAYS LAST will not be able to make it for tomorrow's show. This is because Tobek was injured during the Bad Omen show last weekend. It's got something to do with his back. Me and Napi (The Korok) brought him to the hospital and did the X-Ray and luckily nothing really bad happened, but still haven't recovered. We're very sorry Duan, Dean and friends but I will still be going to the show tomorrow! See you there!"


latest updates from Dean:

this just in. tomorrow’s gig is on!

FORTE will replace always last. Forte is a new band made up of Virginia On Duty line-ups and friends. I suppose they play screamo, but I don’t know for sure. Come and see for yourself!

SHALLOW DANCE am going to replace infinite delay. the line-up got sick and being a student sucks (especially during exam/thesis submission period!). An equal replacement I must say. SD is surely and underrated technical grind monster!

QUANTIS is a new band made up of line-ups of Utarid, Kias Fansuri, and Merkuri. FIRST SHOW EVER! Based on what I’ve heard during their practise, damn, this is some good stuff, somewhere between Reversal of Man and Louise Cyphre.


We will be playing a show at MCPA together with our friends SKUNKFIX, DUM DUM TAK, CARBON4TEEN and AMARAH, along with the Singaporean ska/punk outfit, THE FULL PLEDGE MUNKEES. The recently reincarnate NET from Johor will be playing as well. See you there!

ALWAYS LAST Recording (Part 1)

Hello everyone! Time for recording updates. We have already started recording. As for now, we have recorded 14 songs for the upcoming full length, tentatively titled as "Antidotes". We did finish all the basic guitar, bass and drum tracks. We booked 2 nights at The Band Shop, Taman Melawati and did 9 songs the 1st night and 5 the next night. All that's left now are the additional guitar layers, amendments here and there and of course the vocals. These wonderful pictures are taken by Red (Part Time Lovers). Thanks Red!

ALWAYS LAST demo reviewed in local zines!

from Mosh #11 (November 2008):

"This CD contains 5 songs of fast beats melodic hardcore/punk tunes with wise message lyrics. Among the lyrics are about our current prime minister and also against homophobia. Also contains one hidden track which is an acoustic tune, but they also play it electric at their shows. Enough said, recommended!!!"

from Dead Pigs #2

"I got the CD from their guitarist at Graf Orlock show last year in KL. I'm not sure what is his motive to hand me the CD, either i'm being too sweet or he want a review for this upcoming DP issue. Well for whatever reason it is i'm sure he was right. This piece of good stuff shouldn't be left behind unrecognized. Always Last is a brand new punk rock outfit from Malaysia, comprises people from The Mindless Show that mixes Against Me!, a bit of Satanic Surfers into a jar before blend it with political perspectives. You can hear there is Fat-type of punk been thrown all over the places and i need to praise their own punk engineers for the nice quality of sound for demo. See? Punk engineer rules man! I like this stuff. Catchy, melodic yet politcal and even doing better in live."

What's new with ALWAYS LAST?

We just recorded one new song that will be featured in a compilation called "3 Chords Goes 80's", will be released by Nervhous Records. The song is still in a raw format and haven't been mixed yet. It will be done by Akmal (TIM). The compilation is a project of a bunch of local punk bands covering Malay songs from the 80's. Some of the bands that will be on it are such as Dum Dum Tak, Stick No Bill, Skunkfix, TIM and a bunch of others. Keep your eyes open on that one!

On the other note, Always Last will start recording our full length some time next week. The record is tentatively titled as "Antidotes". As for now we have like 13 songs ready. We are super stoked about recording them. We will try to put the updates on the recording here as frequent as we can.

Rock Against Zionism Photos!

Do It With Your Friends!

Last friday we gathered at Seri Kembangan to make props for last Saturday's Rock Against Zionism show, which was held at One Cafe. Super thank-you's to Amert, Andak, Nizang, Emy, Akmal, Napi and friend, Buying and Norly for staying up late and helping us out with the props.

What we did was during our song "Comforting Asses", we brought out all the props to the mosh pit and played with them like what RAMBO did (nowhere near as good as them). What we tried to project is the role of major TV corporations such as CNN, CNBC and FOX in the Middle East conflict. The news that world get are usually biased, one-sided and not as true to what's really happening in the Middle East. This is because those news are filtered by those who are in power , such as the owner of the networks themselves and those Israeli consulates in the United States. This was inspired by this documentary called "Peace, Propaganda and the Promised Land". We suggest that you go and google or find a way to watch this really good documentary.

Thanks also to Salman, Namo, Ika and the others who participated and also who stayed until the end of the show and supported us. Kudos to you all! Not to forget Apis C14 and Red Ink Entertainment for inviting us to play the show. RM1 from each ticket goes to Aman Palestine Funds.
