Few weeks ago, I was able to visit a KABAYAN website that featured this PINOY INDIE Record label called "StickySweetSounds" aka. SSS Records. Hmmmp!! Of course, not related to our very own Social Security System I may say. He He He!! I was amazed with the music that were featured that comprised of different genres. That's not all guys!! The music is FREE FOR DOWNLOAD. Wheeew!! So I got to download some of it. PROUD TO BE PINOY again KABAYANS!! Then I got to know Bong Tan of "foodshelterandclothing" who is primarily the brains of this SSS Records. The acts that Bong featured were mostly from the province of BACOLOD here in the PHILIPPINES and definitely when I got to listen to some of the Artists/Bands I immediately thought of featuring them here in my little blog "The Doctor Is In". I did enjoyed listening to the different sounds of SSS Records so I then asked Bong if It would be possible that he could compile a CD for my little blog that would showcase the music that I usually feature here in my blog. Anything that's NEW WAVISH, PUNK, ELECTRONIC, and SYNTH-POP would do since I've already heard some music from the SSS Artists/Bands. I was really excited on the songs that Bong would compile since I know that I haven't listen to all the SSS Records acts and It would be interesting what kind of music Bong would share here in my blog. I was not disappointed since the selections were really great and I'm glad to have the opportunity to feature it here on my blog. Big THANKS to Bong!! You're the man bro!!
Well, before we go to the SSS compilation for "The Doctor Is In" It would be nice to know how "StickySweetSounds" came about. According to Bong, he was inspired by another On-line Record Label which was based here in MANILA called QED Records which was responsible for releasing some of their older stuffs so he thought of starting "StickySweetSounds" (SSS RECORDS) as an experiment late last year 2008. He was just testing if It could also click in BACOLOD at the same time It would also serve as a venue to release their Back Catalog as "foodshelterandclothing" as well as some various side projects like the recent release of "THE SUGAR COLLECTIVE COMPILATION". Bong was just happy with the very warm responses it got from a lot of people and of course that includes me so that's why I'm glad to present you SSS Records here in blog for you guys to know about them too. I guess the WORLD is ready also for some REAL SUGAR to speak. He He He!!
So here it goes....."The Dr. Stirring Rhod Way" of presenting PINOY INDIE RECORD LABEL 'StickySweetSounds" of Sugar City aka. "SSS RECORDS".
"The Doctor Is In" and "StickySweetSounds" Compilation
Here are 15 great Artists/Bands!! I've arranged it in order of the TRACKLIST and uploaded some songs for you to listen to. Btw, did you noticed the hot chick on the "PILLSSS" Cover? Well, that's the TRADEMARK of "SSS RECORDS" Music Releases but I requested just a mild version for my blog's compilation. He He He!! Bong has a lot of CENSORED/PARENTAL GUIDANCE CD Covers I may say. Ha Ha Ha!! It wouldn't be "SSS Records" without these Hot Chicks as covers and posters. Hmmmp!! I personally termed it as STARLETS. He He He!!
1) OKAY (AGAIN) by FoodShelterAndClothing
The compilation started with none other than SSS's main man Bong's "food shelter and clothing".
I asked Bong regarding label and band name and here are his answers:
Bong: As for the Label name, besides being the name of Madonna's tour,hehe, it somehow represents our City and Province with its apparent sugar production and sweet delicacies. I reckon its a nice pun to the Social Security System records and its kinda close acronym wise to Jello Biafra's SST
Bong: Our name was inspired by the Alison Anders flick "gas,food, and lodging", and also from 60s and 70s acts with "3 names" e.g. "Earth,Wind and Fire", "Blood Sweat and Tears", Crosby Still and Nash", "Peter, Paul, and Mary", etc. hehe!
I just thought that Bong would include "Tito, Vic, and Joey" on the list. He He He!!
