Malaysian punk rock lifer Joe Kidd announced a new initiative entitled The Ricecooker Archives. Check out his introduction below:
“As many of you may have known, I’ve been more involved in researching, documenting and archiving rather than running a music shop/studio/label like before. This is the trajectory of The Ricecooker into the future; something which I have been gearing myself up for a while now.
