At the end of 2005, Kesminas arrived in Jogjakarta for a three month Asialink residency (2009 interview with author). His only preparation for the new culture was reading a blog, The Politics of Indonesia, by Damien Kingsbury. It was a dense read, filled with acronyms. Despite their inscrutability, these acronyms would later end up being an important creative resource.
Soon after he arrived in Jogjakarta, Kesminas started spending time at a local art school. There he found a familiar scene of young rebels playing aggressive rock music. So he decided to form a band of his own and went about recruiting musicians, with immediate success. As Kesminas did not speak any Indonesian, they created lyrics together that were inspired by the acronyms he had read. Fortuitously, this method corresponded with a local word game, plesatan, which satirizes the official language of the Indonesian state. For example, the song TNI is based on the acronym that stands for Tentara Nasional Indonesia (Indonesian National Military) but which is sung as Tikyan Ning Idab-Idabi
