From the first book of THE BIBLE which is the Book Of GENESIS, the creation week narrative begins with these words: "In the beginning, GOD created the heavens and the earth." It took place over a period of six days and was followed by a seventh day of rest. GOD created in chronological order: LIGHT, THE HEAVENS, DRY LAND AND SEA, LIGHTS IN THE HEAVENS, SEA CREATURES AND BIRDS, LAND ANIMALS AND HUMAN BEINGS, and rested on the 7th Day. So when did GOD CREATED INDIE? Hmmmp!! On the 8th day? Naaah!! It's just the title of another Philippine NEW WAVE Compilation CD.
It was 1996 while I was listening to 89DMZ's New Wave Program called "WAVE180" hosted by "THE UNBEATABLE", I heard a very different extended remix of PSYCHEDELIC FURS' classic song "GHOST IN YOU". I never heard that version before even in the 80s so I decided to track it down where I could get a good copy of this version. Then I saw this CD in GREENHILLS SHOPPING MALL entitled "AND GOD CREATED INDIE" few days after I heard it on "WAVE 180" and It was included on the CD. It was a bit expensive that time so I decided to skip it for a while. Then I found out that my brother's classmate have bought the CD compilation already so good thing I'll just have to borrow it and tape it on a good MAXELL Chrome Tape to cut on my budget. No CD burning back then. He he he!!
It's a compilation of THE BEST NEW WAVE REMIXES which were very much different from the original remixes that PINOY WAVERS are familiar of. YUP!! It's not the original remixes we heard before and totally another version. The ART cover is terriffic for the title don't you think? These songs were all played on "WAVE 180" during the radio program's peak. We are fortunate today that my friend Rhenzo was able to obtain a copy of the compilation so that we could share it to you guys. We will be glad to hear from you guys when you download this compilation. I reuploaded the file he gave me and so here it is the CD compilation I'm talking about........."AND GOD CREATED INDIE".
