It's two more days to go as Bisikleta Productions kickstart another event after a long hiatus from the ska, punk, mod scene and this time around we are doing a ska all niter event billled as RUDE MAYNILA featuring different ska acts from Manila and nearby provinces such as Pampanga, Bulacan and Angono.
There's good news and there's bad news for this event. First the bad news i just got word from Pasig City's 2tone torch bearers Steady Movin' Beat's frontman that there will be a no show for them this coming saturday due to some personal mishaps involving her mom. Let us pray for his mom's speedy recovery. And from Pasig City lets get to Mandaluyong and Pateros Skinhead Reggae maestros word is that they have a line up problem involving their bass player their guitarist told me that their bassist is quiting his duties and is concentrating on some other things well whatever it is hats off to you lad! do what ya like.
And now the good news Kankaloo (that's Caloocan City for you my friend) neotrad trad ska band Greetings from Julie had climbed on board Rude Maynila in replacement to Steady Moving Beat these guys goes way way back from their Clubska Manila and Skamax days and is serving up some heavyweight ska in the vein of the Skatalites if you wanna know more about them go google them up on their myspace site. As of now i am still try to find a replacement for the vacancy spot that Rocket Punch has left and i am trying to contact a local ska band from Batangas word is that they are cutting up their indepently produced record way to go guys! never trust those corporate recording company scumbags!
Anyway if those guys and one girl from that band does not reply as soon as possible do not worry folks we still have great great bands to liven up the dance floor including the newly reformed skacore band from Malolos, Bulakan The Scars headed by Alex Dumlao of the mod soul band Juan Pablo Dream plus these DJs from Angono the Soundblasters serving up intensified ska reggae mod soul and punk rock! This lads from Angono are legit! (heard of Neighbors?) and another treat for you the show will be hosted by non other than the Modfather Bing Austria former keyboardist of Put3ska (watch out for Juan Pablo Dream's Sophomore Album!).
The venue will be at TEN 02 BAR & RESTO Scout Ybardolaza, Timog, Quezon City if you are going from Edsa you can see the GMA Network building go right if you are southbound straight ahead is 2 gas stations the 2nd one is the landmark for Myra Ruaro's Place TEN 02. For 50 bucks you will get an ice cold beer and for those lucky few will get a limited Rude Maynila compilation CDs for free. Warning though please leave your politics at the door politics fuck you up. Enough said now lets dance dance dance!
