Watch Dengue Fever Perform "Gendjer Gendjer"

Dengue Fever performs "Gendjer Gendjer" in a back hallway at Amoeba Music in San Francisco. According to guitarist Zac Holtzman (who formed the band with his brother, Ethan, the keyboardist), the song was originally written during the Japanese occupation of Indonesia during World World II when food was so scarce that people resorted to eating Gendjer, a weed that grew in rice fields.
