REQUIEM means any grand musical composition, performed in honor of a deceased person. It's also
a mass said or sung for the repose of a departed soul. But PINOY NEW WAVERS will remember this as one of the legendary get together of BANDS and MOBILES back in the XB and BM days. YUP!! Its' a NEW WAVE PARTY!! Now, some of my KABAYANS who organized it here in MANILA back in the 80s are bringing it back again. Well, this time it will be held at SAN FRANCISCO CALIFORNIA and entitled "REQUIEM RISING" which will be held on NOVEMBER 20, 2010. Performances by JULIE PLUG, GOLDA + GUNS , and PAGES with Music Mixes from two of MANILA's LEGENDARY MOBILES namely MODE ZERO and EYEBALL DUB. Btw, I have already featured MODE ZERO here on "The Doctor Is In" back in JUNE 2009 and you could check it out on my archives under the Label of "MANILA'S NEW WAVE MOBILES". So if you guys are in the vicinity do check this NEW WAVE DANCE PARTY at PAUL SMITH BUILDING. There were already two REQUIEM Parties here in MANILA back in the 80s and so this would be officially It's Third Part of the saga and according to the organizers they will try to bring back the party here in MANILA too. That would be interesting isn't it?

Here's a poster of "REQUIEM 2" back in 1988 courtesy of NILO X . LEGENDARY PARTY indeed with performances from PINOY UNDERGROUND BANDS like ETHNIC FACES, KHUMBMELA BAND, MOHAWK, UNDER BLUE SKIES, VIOLENT PLAYGROUND, and MERE MERCY. Music Mixes were also done by MODE ZERO and EYEBALL DUB together with FIRST RELEASE, WAVES, SPYE, MOBILE ONE, and lastly the very first NEW WAVE MOBILE which I've also featured here in my little blog back in JUNE 2008 none other than HARMONIC TREND. No poster of the first REQUIEM party are available right now so I just posted "REQUIEM 2". WINSTON BAUTISTA of MODE ZERO was the one who created both poster design. That Lady in the poster is definitely REQUIEM's ultimate Logo!!
