WHAT THEY SAY
ABOUT THE BAND

"I didn't like the name but it doesn't matter. They played great band music."
- Nina Araknida
Sunstar, Flip / September 15, 2002

"Few rock bands in town could stand at the crossroads of a dynamic and evolving music scene and knock down the high walls that divide music genres and audiences with as much success as Sheila and the Insects. "
- Ronald P. Villavelez
Yup!, Issue 1.03 / November 2001

"Sheila & The Insects’ music is new wave-influenced post-punk rock music that is considerably heavy yet still melodic "
- Cris O. Ramos Jr.
The Manila Times / May 31, 2003

"What does an indie band do with the oft-maligned mix of rock and new wave? In the case of Cebu-based Sheila and the Insects, plenty."
- Ganns Deen
PULP , PulpReviews / Issue 13, March 2001

THIS MONTH'S LYRICS
Softly
Sheila and the Insects
Originally by Apo Hiking Society


:: Download SATI version ::
:: Original Apo version ::
Written by Jim Paredes

Softly, as the morning sun
Comes through my window pane
Thoughts come to me
Memories of you fill my mind and I smile

So gently, and my world transforms
Into a merry carousel
Turning me round
Bringing me back to the place where I found ...

You there, time could have stood still and then
We'd spend all our moments to share
The dreams that we've known sometime, somewhere

And as, we go through the days
Remembering the love we made
I know that you'll stay
Bringing me more than what mere words can say

I know, that time can stand still and then
We'd spend all our moments to share
The dreams that we've known sometime, somewhere.

I know, that time can stand still and then
We'd spend all our moments to share
The dreams that we've known sometime, somewhere.

Notes:
This song appears in the album The Best of Kami nAPO Muna 2CD+DVD.

Manila tour

I still find the Manila audience more appreciative, at least outwardly, of our music than their Cebuano counterpart. Every time we play in Manila, any gig, the response is generally warmer than here in Cebu. Prophets don’t preach in their hometowns because no one listens to them there. If our situation is a reflection of this ‘prophet’ syndrome, maybe that explains it. But I believe it has more to do with the differences in local culture. I’ve written before on the differences. On Cebuano fans

In any case, I enjoy playing in both but for different reasons. Since it has been quite some time since we last played in Manila, the excitement there is naturally quite more and building as Friday draws nearer. Aside from the sheer pleasure of playing to fresh audiences, we get to play a couple of our new songs aside from the ‘Flowerfish’ set.

To those who will catch us in our gigs in Manila, let us know what you think of our new songs: ‘Monolove’ and ‘Pretty loser’ which we’ll be playing in our sets. It’s sort of like a test run for the newer stuff we’re writing for our next album.

Here’s our schedule, which may change without prior notice:

MAY 19 – FRIDAY
– Gweilos, Libis,QC – 10 pm
– Greenhills, G-Strip 1, Jam Radio Anniversary

MAY 20 – SATURDAY
– Saguijo (Admit 1) Makati – 10.30 pm

the Ramones played in the thousands all over world except in their home city of New York where they played in small untidy punk bars ....i was very surprised
few years ago when i saw you guys at some place near the capitol with very few audience...i think it was during the peak of showbands in cebu...i've just always thought that with your music and talent you can make it in europe,japan and even the u.s....im glad that rock is back in cebu and people are appreciating real original music like yours.
just think of yourselves as the Ramones for now and cebu as new york...sooner or later the "slow" ones will "get it"
