HAPPY NEW YEARS DAY to you too(U2)!!


Happy NEW YEARS DAY to you all!!
Well, I guess this would be my last post in this little BLOG of mine for the YEAR2007. It was indeed another great year for me. As we all say goodbye to 2007 and hello to 2008, do take time to count your blessings. It will fill your heart with GRACE and GRATITUDE. So to all VIEWERS of my BLOG "THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR SUPPORTING THIS LITTLE BLOG OF MINE!" So to those Lurkers ,well start signing in my GUEST BOOK so that I'll get to know you guys!! More to come this 2008!!
I think most of you guys have already a copy of U2's Classic Song "NEW YEARS DAY" so I don't need to upload the song anymore. The "U2 War" Vinyl Record was one of my first Imported Records I bought back in 1985. Here in MANILA, you have the option to buy either the Locally pressed Vinyl or the Imported ones. There were also a lot of New Wave Records which were played on both XB and BM that were never released locally but Pinoy Wavers like me got our own copies as Imports here in Vinyl Specialty Stores or Abroad. "NEW YEARS DAY" by U2 was included in their classic "WAR" album.


NEW YEARS DAY
-U2

All is quiet on New Year's Day.
A world in white gets underway.
I want to be with you, be with you
night and day.
Nothing changes on New Year's Day.
On New Year's Day.

I... will be with you again.
I... will be with you again.

Under a blood-red sky
A crowd has gathered in black and white
Arms entwined, the chosen few
The newspaper says, says
Say it's true, it's true...
And we can break through
Though torn in two
We can be one.

I... I will begin again
I... I will begin again.

Oh, oh. Oh, oh. Oh, oh.
Oh, maybe the time is right.
Oh, maybe tonight.

I will be with you again.
I will be with you again.

And so we are told this is the golden age
And gold is the reason for the wars we wage
Though I want to be with you
Be with you night and day
Nothing changes

On New Year's Day
On New Year's Day
On New Year's Day

HAVE A HAPPY AND PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR AHEAD!!

From your FRIENDLY NEIGHBORHOOD:

CHORUS GIRL




It was early 1998 when an 80s New Wave Philippine Bootleg CD Compilation entitled "CHORUS" was released here in Manila specifically in Greenhills Shopping Mall. The Alternative Rock Genre was already waning on Manila's airwaves by that time. The New Wave Program of 89DMZ "WAVE180" was very vital in bringing back New Wave in the mid90s and also gave the New Generation of Pinoy Music Enthusiasts a chance back then to really know about the musical genre called "NEW WAVE" . When the magic of WAVE180 was declining in 1998, New Wave Bootleg CD compilations started to be released here in Manila. The PINOY definition of NEW WAVE would be very much different from other countries but I still consider it as the best definition. (Tama ba mga Kabayans?) Then a sequel to it "CHORUS 2" was also released which I was able to buy(during those times it's still expensive) due to the great sales of the original one.



The "CHORUS" CD compilation then mutated into what Pinoy Wavers would definitely recall as "CHORUS GIRL". YUP! Burn CDs were not yet the trend during those times and so a lot of volumes were then produced. It includes music from B52s, Human League,Billy Idol, Bananarama and a lot more....... "too many to mention".

Thanks to buddy ERIC ALVIZ who shared the photo of his complete "CHORUS GIRL" CD series which he was able to collect and preserved. I, personally wasn't able to complete the series so I ask ERIC if I could feature his entire "CHORUS GIRL" collection in this Blog of mine. A total of 9 "CHORUS GIRL" CDs. This doesn't include the two sequels of "CHORUS".

Taaaaaarrrraaaaaah!! TAKE IT AWAY ERIC ALVIZ!!




A great fan of this CD compilation is DJ HILARY(LITEWAVE DJ for 8 months in 2005). She mentioned one time on air on her LITEWAVE show that her sister JANUARY ISAAC(Model/Actress who is well known in the Philippine Commercial as SURF's LUMEN) has influenced her on NEW WAVE by these said compilations. Hmmmmp!! Great Taste!!



BTW, by year 2000 this entire series which was already a bootleg was even bootlegged at a much cheaper price which was available at QUIAPO. HE HE HE!! Well, It doesn't stop there..... Last 2004 this series became an mp3 Bootleg CD. YUP!! The entire CHORUS GIRL series on one CD. Hmmmmp!! Only in the Philippines indeed!! Ayuuuuuzzzzz talaga Pinoy!! MABUHAY!!

THANK YOU VERY MUCH AGAIN TO ERIC ALVIZ for sharing the photo of his 9 Original CHORUS GIRL CDs!! ANG GALING PARE!!

PINOY WAVERS would definitely remember this PHILIPPINE CLASSIC 80s NEW WAVE BOOTLEG COMPILATION CDs!!

UNDERGROUND RADIO CHRISTMAS SPECIALS

"R U Listening to U.R.?"- well, that's the famous station I.D. that I hear often whenever I get a chance to listen to the newly formatted RJ UNDERGROUND RADIO 105.9. This format came about early JULY of this year 2007 and I was just able to catch it last AUGUST. I find the playlist very interesting and as their DJs would say "We play CLASSIC ROCK, MODERN ROCK, and PINOY ROCK". Their radio dial LA 105.9 is the same FM dial which brought the PINOY ALTERNATIVE ROCK explosion of the early 90s but this time it is owned by Rajah Broadcasting Corporation which bought the station in 2006.

Last OCTOBER I was able to tune in to the early morning show of MICK ZINGER and MEMPHIS called "A.M. MAYHEM" before going to work and I find the show very cool. Great playlist indeed so if I have ample time in my schedule I listen to this morning show.

This December RJ Underground Radio 105.9 had these CHRISTMAS SPECIALS on their radio shows. YUP!! It was a great treat for their avid listeners. They started it out last DECEMBER 23 when HOWLIN DAVE's show "PINOY ROCK and RHYTHM" had their CHRISTMAS PINOY ROCK SPECIAL. I caught some of the show which was aired 12noon to 4pm and it was a refreshing rock show which showcased PINOY ROCK CHRISTMAS SONGS. Annng Galiiiing!! And last DECEMBER 24 and 25 RJ Underground Radion had a 48hour CHRISTMAS ROCK SPECIAL. Yup that's true 48hours of NON-STOP Rockin' Christmas tunes from all genres of rock. Of course, I was not a martyr to tune in for 48 hours because I was also busy for the Holidays. HE HE HE! Although, I caught some of the songs that was played during my spare time like THE PRETENDERS, THE KINKS, THE SCAVENGERS, etc. Well, that's CHRISTMAS for RAMON "RJ" JACINTO "owner of the station" and lead singer of the LEGENDARY PINOY 60s ROCK and ROLL BAND "R.J. and the RIOTS".

Thanks for these GREAT CHRISTMAS MUSIC TREATS indeed R.J. !!

SO everyone "R U LISTENING TO U.R.?"
Here's the link to the station:

LYRICS:
Santa baby, slip a sable under the tree, for me
I've been an awful good girl
Santa baby, and hurry down the chimney tonight

Santa baby, an out-of-space convertible too, light blue
I'll wait up for you dear
Santa baby, and hurry down the chimney tonight

Think of all the fun I've missed
Think of all the fellas that I haven't kissed
Next year I could be oh so good
If you'd check off my Christmas list
Boo doo bee doo

Santa honey, I wanna yacht and really that's
Not a lot
I've been an angel all year
Santa baby, and hurry down the chimney tonight

Santa cutie, there's one thing I really do need, the deed
To a platinum mine Santa cutie, and hurry down the chimney tonight

Santa baby, I'm filling my stocking with a duplex, and checks
Sign your 'X' on the line
Santa baby, and hurry down the chimney tonight

Come and trim my Christmas tree
With some decorations bought at Tiffany's
I really do believe in you Let's see if you believe in me
Boo doo bee doo

Santa baby, forgot to mention one little thing, a ring
I don't mean a phone
Santa baby, and hurry down the chimney tonight
Hurry down the chimney tonight
Hurry down the chimney tonight

THE CHIPMUNKS CHRISTMAS

During the late 70s my DAD use to play his VINYL Record of "THE CHIPMUNKS GREATEST CHRISTMAS HITS" whenever it's CHRISTMAS season here in the Philippines. YUP!! This album brings back great memories of my youth and my DAD. Unfortunately, I can't find anymore his VINYL Record so I have to buy the CD version of it. I was surprised to know that there were actually two CHIPMUNKS Christmas CDs available in the record bars so I finally decided to purchase both of them. The other one is entitled "A CHIPMUNK CHRISTMAS" by "ALVIN AND THE CHIPMUNKS". But for me the album "THE CHIPMUNKS GREATEST CHRISTMAS HITS" is much better. Up to now, these songs never really get me bored and it's really fun listening to them. Since, Christmas is only a few days away, then I've been playing these songs frequently. The good old days of my Childhood and today's life fulfillment and enrichment combined while listening to these classic Christmas tunes sung by the most popular and mischievous ALVIN, the chubby THEODORE, and the intelectual SIMON(with eyeglasses) together known as THE CHIPMUNKS . Of course, there is DAVID SEVILLE who is their human father who takes care of this trio. I do hope you enjoy the two songs that I just uploaded for you guys who frequent my Blog. One in each album and they are my favorites!!

Where is Santa? At his sleigh?
Tell me why is it always this way?

HERALD X

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.

NEWSWAVE



"What's the Buzz, tell me what's happening." (3X) "This is NEWSWAVE!" Ooops! As soon as I hear this on air on the Legendary XB show "REQUEST ROUND-UP" of Legendary XB DJ(My favorite XB jock!!) "THE MORNING MAN" back in 1987 it means it's NEWS time on his slot. The music background was taken from the JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR soundtrack and the song title is "What's The Buzz?".


NEWSWAVE is a NEWS portion about the latest in NEW WAVE and it's genres on Morning Man's Request Round-Up Morning Show which was conceptualized on JANUARY 1987. It's very obvious that the title was taken from the word "NEW WAVE".

In APRIL 1988, a Newsletter/magazine called "NEWSWAVE" was released on the underground world. As the Editors and Authors of the said Fanzine have written back then "NEWSWAVE is a newspaper magazine about anything but not everything." I bought a copy of the NEWSWAVE in HARRISON PLAZA back in 1988, but unfortunately I was unable to preserve my copy.WaaaaaaH!! The fanzine includes news about the sequestered WXB102"THE STATION THAT DARES TO BE DIFFERENT" and what happened to their DJs, The new NU107, Identity Crisis on T.V., and some news about THE BOLSHOI and U2 and a lot more stuffs!! There was also a NEWSWAVE Volume Two if I'm not mistaken. I'm not really sure if that was published too.

THANKS TO ALDRIN of Legendary New Wave Mobile HARMONIC TREND I was able to feature his copy in this blog of mine. YUP!! The photos here are ALDRIN's NEWSWAVE original copy which he scanned and preserved. So all 8 pages of the whole fanzine is here!!




The SPONSORS of this 1988 fanzine is the usual sponsors and supporters of WXB102 when the station was still on air in 1985-1987. Every PINOY NEW WAVERS and PINOY PUNKS will definitely remember who they were:



KHUMBMELA
HIGH ADVENTURE
ARTE LINEA
NIZZLE DAZZLE
DREAMS
ECLIPSE
HARD STUFF

.......unfortunately these sponsors doesn't anymore exist here in MANILA at present.

I had a chat last year with INGGO "THE MORNING MAN" ON THE XB BOARD and he was really glad that I have helped him remember his "NEWSWAVE" PORTION on "REQUEST ROUND-UP".
http://pub17.bravenet.com/forum/1390696087/show/640831

YUP!!! GREAT MEMORIES INDEED for PINOY PUNKS AND NEW WAVERS!!
.......THIS IS NEWSWAVE!!


MARAMING SALAMAT ULIT ALDRIN of HARMONIC TREND!!

THE 14th NU107 ROCK AWARDS

NU107 was a vital radio station back in the 80s and still rockin' MANILA's airwaves at the present time. It brought back NEW WAVE format on MANILA months after WXB102 went off the air. It also inspired POWER105 DZBM to bring back their NEW WAVE format which was removed on mid-86. NU107 is also very influencial in promoting and supporting the PINOY ROCK scene from the 80s,90s, 2000 and beyond.

Read my NU1o7 entry:
The NU107 ROCK AWARDS started wayback 1994 when the PINOY ALTERNATIVE ROCK scene was very much alive. I remembered watching the first Rock Awards on T.V. and Legendary Pinoy Rock Icons performed LIVE! "LAKLAK" by TEETH was the "SONG OF THE YEAR". ERASERHEADS Pinoy Alternative Catalytic Album "ULTRA ELECTROMAGNETIC POP" became the "ALBUM OF THE YEAR". I was able to get two different original NU107 ROCK AWARDS CDs given to me by NU107 jocks back then which I will post in this blog in the future.
The 14th NU107 ROCK AWARDS was held last week NOVEMBER 30,2007 at The World Trade Center in Pasay City. This 2007 Rock Awards is as star-studded as it was from the previous Rock Awards. Performances from PINOY ROCK bands like BAMBOO, HILERA, TROPICAL DEPRESSION and many more made the event really awesome. Of coure, don't forget 80s PINOY ROCK Icon THE DAWN was also there to perform.
