Gu Guai Xing Qui (France) | ZEPPO (Switzerland) Philippine Tour


Gu Gua Xing Qui is a theatrical grindcore punk band from France. This guys are doing some acting while and in between their live set. One of a kind punk band. Not really familiar with their music, only started listening to them few days before their Philippine tour. Their live set was really sick, enjoyed it a lot. I was able to talk to Nancy after their set and according to him this might be their last tour, since they're living far way with each other, and he is not certain about the plans for the band. Nancy also mentioned that they've been around for years already. 


ZEPPO is an awesome Three Piece Eco-Anarcho Punk band from Switzerland. Handing out lyric sheets and other text before they start their set, I always appreciate bands who hand out lyric sheets before they start their set, making sure that their message will be heard and open our eyes and mind to what is happening in society. ZEPPO's lyrics are mainly about social commentary, politics, and personal struggle. 

They will be playing few more shows around the country. If you get the chance to catch them please do.

Awesome show from Bloc Party last Friday night, I even got a free invite for the show. Lighting was great as well. It really compliments the music and their live performance.

Controlled Chaos Fixed - Anilao Ride

- Photos from my camera phone

Nerve-racking downhill bombing
Steep slopes and blind curves
Break-less, skidding trough hard concrete
The smell of the burning tires
Riding high, we fly.

The Ataris Live in Manila

A little souvenir from last weekend's show.
I was on a fan boy mode last weekend at The Ataris Manila Tour. Been waiting for this moment since I've heard End Is Forever in 2001. Though I am not really into their new material I still consider this band as one of my fave band. End is Forever, Blue Skies, Broken Heart... Next Twelve Exits has been the soundtrack of my early days in college. Together with bands like The Get Up Kids, Taking Back Sunday  Saves The Day, Grade, Dashboard Confessional, Brand New, American Football, Texas is The Reason to name a few. They've been influential to me and my band since started playing pop punk tunes, covering song like Giving Up On Love, Summer Wind Was Always Our Song and San Dimas High School Football Rules. So I was really thankful that they toured here and its better late than never. I even have a little chat with Kris Roe and thank him for the music(cliche! haha)  and he even complement for the shirt (The Get Up Kids) I'm wearing during that time. I sang my heart out in each of every song they played that night and It was all worth it.

Thank you The Ataris.

Listening to: Grade - Under The Radar and Elliot - False Cathedral. 

Oh, nostalgia!
