Terms of Reference:
Orgasm Addicts – name of Manila based band playing pop-punk-rock-grunge type music. Members are Chris Del Rosario (vocals), Geh (guitars), Kaniko_kiko (bass) and Kangker aka Reagan Palispis of Burgos St, Baler, Aurora on drums. Listen to their myspace sampler.
E.P – short for extended play, used back in the long playing (LP) days and still used in this CD generation. Refers to a mini album of sorts with 3 to 5 songs. Somewhere between a single and a full album.
Mayrics – located in front of UST along EspaÃ±a Avenue in Manila, this music bar is said to be “the place where all great bands are born”. And dies =). This is the Philippine equivalent of New York’s CBGB’s, only this one still exists. This music bar started as an eatery back in the early 80’s and later evolved into a legend where most popular bands in the 80’s, 90’s and the 00’s started their career.
I arrived late since i came by way of Pampanga and Antipolo. Pentavia was playing when I entered the familiar place but my camera is still in my bag. So i only managed to take pictures of Piledriver from Sta. Rosa , Laguna, Libris Arcana from Baler, Orgasm Addicts, and Ina ni Basilio. Most of the bands have Balerian members and the audience are mostly Aurorans studying in Manila. Some still came from Baler just to play or see this gig. It was a sort of another Akaw Invasion and the members of OA and the Mayrics peeps are happy because they sold many Colt 45.
To the parents seeing their kids in the pictures here, some are even drinking beer or smoking, don’t worry. This is a once in a year happening for them. Most of the time they are studying hard and holding books and pens. The kids are alright! Well, almost.
