Marco Ferrarese: from the land of Raw Power and Indigesti he comes, fellow journeyman of sweat-thronged underground music, and the Herman Melville of the international fanzine-cum-Web page nation
David Ensminger, author and punk historian

Between 2010 and 2015, travel writer, author and metal punk guitarist Marco Ferrarese was the one and only white elephant in the room of the Malaysian metal punk scene. A European inbred metal punk fool stranded in a globalised world of transnational extreme music chop suey. In this highly electric and graphic memoir, Ferrarese tells you how it was to play lead guitar in Penangs thrashcore band WEOT SKAM, negotiating flimsy stage set-ups and shady promoters in order to gel into a developing worlds music scene. He takes you on a no-frills road bonanza scouring for sonic extremities across the whole length of Malaysia and Borneo. He chases down long-haired metal punk descendants of Iban headhunting tribes, scrawny Bidayuh anarcho-punk rockers, Kadazan-Dusun activist artists, skullcap-toting Muslim death metallers, and gets you a seat in WEOT SKAMs rickety van for a DIY sleigh ride through the bowels of Jakarta and the vulgar, bogan-filled streets of Bali. Will your seatbelts fasten quickly enough
