HARK! It's A Crawling Tar-Tar - Dorr Darr Gelap Communiqué

HARK! It's A Crawling Tar-Tar were an experimental hardcore/punk group from Bandung City, Indonesia. The group incorporated thrash, crust - even skewed segments of hybrid folk.

Their 2005 album 'Dorr Darr Gelap Communiqué' has been getting some spins from me lately, really ambitious album/band...can tell they aimed to create something unique and different.
The name is pretty questionable/bad (vocalist apparently based it off a random thought in his head), but the music is anything but -- def recommend giving it a try.

hey dude, nice blog u got going here!
Hark! is a great band, with strong political views in their lyrics as well.. if i remember correctly, in the liner note it says the name represents the declining state of the country's welfare of their society and its negligent govt.

this release seemed to be a one off thing, which sucks... members are scattered in various bands in the hc punk scene in bandung indonesia.

thx for highlighting this band. tho i'm not from indonesia i'm proud to see music from my side of the world is being heard all around the world. mad props to you!
