THE ADVENTURES was first introduced here in MANILA by WXB102 wayback late 1985 by playing the extended version of their classic "TWO RIVERS" which incidentally was #2 on the WXB TOP 102 MOST SEQUESTERED SONGS poll which was held last 2006. I also remembered the song hitting the #1 spot on the late evening XB Show "TOP 10 MOST SEQUESTERED SONGS" back in 1986. Their second Manila Hit would be "SEND MY HEART" which was taken also from their debut album "THEODORE AND FRIENDS". YUP!! All Pinoy Wavers have this album on their collection.
In 1988, NU107 introduced their second album "THE SEA OF LOVE" by playing "HEAVEN KNOWS WHICH WAY" which also bacame a hit on Manila New Wave Airwaves both on NU107 and DZBM POWER105 and was even included on the Philippine released compilation Vinyl "THE BEST OF NEW MUSIC 2". Then came "BROKEN LAND" which became an instant POWER105 classic because of the song's relation on CHEL D. "WHEN YOUR HEART WAS YOUNG" would be the last Manila Hit from this album and the band and Pinoy Wavers would definitely have also a copy it. HE HE HE!!
In 1989, THE ADVENTURES 3rd album "TRADING SECRETS WITH THE MOON" was introduced by DZBM POWER 105 by playing the song "YOUR GREATEST SHADE OF BLUE" but unlike the previous two albums, this album didn't really made a great impact here in Manila but still a relatively Pinoy Waver's collectors item.
THE ADVENTURES was the New Wave Band from Belfast who moved to London which was formed in 1984 headed by TERRY SHARPE on vocals who came from the late 70s group "THE STARJETS". The band released four albums and became famous here in Manila during the XB,BM, and NU days.
