Malaysian Girls were an unidentified group of three Malaysian girls splashing water called 'ketimum' or water splash music, which later ended up in the BBC Archives. The water splash track called Hydro-Percussion appeared on John Peel's Archive Things and nothing is known when or where in Malaysia the sound was recorded.
