Punk Indonesia: A brief introduction

Jim Donaghey

Research output: Contribution to journalEditorialpeer-review


Calling all regional governors, police forces and religious conservatives! Are you looking for a way to attract the attentions of the world to your local punk scene, spawn numerous support campaigns for them, and bring journalists and even academic researchers to the area to write accounts of their resilience and punk-as-fuckness? If so, take a leaf from the book of the Banda Aceh Civil Police and Aceh’s Deputy Governor Illiza Sa’aduddin Djamal and arbitrarily abduct and torture several scores of punks (remember to take photos, publish them and brazenly defend your actions against any criticism). The world will be watching – guaranteed!
