DOM 65 is one of Indonesia’s pioneers of Oi!/streetpunk bands formed in the mid-’90s. They’ve released 2 EPs, 2 LPs and 4 singles. Their music is always evolving throughout their career. Their first LP “Greatest Pledge Articles” (2005) has been cited as an extraordinary release where they mix Oi! music with progressive/psychedelic rock. This album re-issued on vinyl in 2017 by Nirmana Records and can be listened on Spotify and will be re-released by Dugtrax Records on Bandcamp at the end of this month.
They changed their style on the 2nd LP “Committed” where they simplified the previous one but still has the progressive rock composition. This style continued in their latest 2 singles “Gentho Kates” and “John Smith” both are released this label in 2019.
Today the band has released a new track harking back to their witty storylines. This time the song is about the Yogyakarta Health Department’s statistics that one-third of our citizens are depressed, and the anger people feel toward the government.
