Entry: Manila tour Wednesday, May 17, 2006



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.

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"
