Well, here is another UNDERGROUND FANZINE that was published here in MANILA during the NEW WAVE/PUNK era of the 80s. HERALD X is an underground newsletter/magazine published wayback late 1986 during the Turmoil Times in Philippine Politics and of course on the HEYDAY of NEW WAVE and PUNK scene here in MANILA better known as the BRAVE NEW WORLD scene. It features news about PINOY PUNK Pioneers URBAN BANDITS, BETRAYED and imported hardcore bands like DEAD KENNEDYS and a lot more stuffs about the latest Underground Scene back then. YUP!! It's one of those Fanzine that also featured "THE STATION THAT DARES TO BE DIFFERENT" WXB102 since XB was one of the prime movers and supporters of the PINOY PUNK scene back then. Twisted Red Cross' Tommy Tanchanco considered HERALD X as a medium to promote his Record Label
THANKS TO ROMMEL GONZALES of PINOY WAVE BAND CAFFEINE I got to feature his Original HERALD X Fanzine which he was able to preserve up to this date. There were only TWO ISSUES that were published back in 1986. Actually, there was an unpublished 3rd Issue of HERALD X and it was on Xerox Copy format that includes mostly album reviews. If any one of you have a copy of it maybe you could share it here on my little blog.
