Finally after a decade of ARROYO administration, my beloved country "The Philippines" has a new President today JUNE 30, 2010. Another historical moment for all KABAYANS!! Of course, that includes a new Vice President too. The 15th President of The Republic Of The Philippines is BENIGNO SIMEON "NOYNOY" COJUANGCO AQUINO III. Well, I hope he would really bring forth changes here in my country together with Philippine Vice President JEJOMAR "JOJO" CABAUATAN BINAY. So they're P-NOY (President Noynoy) and V-NAY ( VP Binay). Let's just wish them all the best in the coming six years. Huh? I wonder if I'm still blogging that time after six years? As long as you guys are still there to support "The Doctor Is In" so why not coconut. He He He!! This would be another chapter on Philippine History and definitely these two gentlemen would be facing a tough task ahead of them. Goodluck!! Goodbye PGMA..... Hello P-NOY!! Ayuz ba mga PINOY?

Congratulations P-NOY and V-NAY!!


PUT3SKA - Manila Girl

PUT3SKA is a 7-9 piece PINOY SKA BAND formed back in 1995 composed of the late LUIS 'Weslu' GUIANG (formerly of G.I. and THE IDIOTS and PRIVATE STOCK), MYRA RUARO (formerly of ARDOURN DELIRIUM) on vocals., ARNOLD MORALES (Lead vocalist of Legendary Pinoy Punk Band "URBAN BANDITS"), and BING AUSTRIA ( Lead vocalist of JUAN PABLO DREAM). Of course every Filipino knows where the band got their name. Do we have to tackle on that guys? He He He!! It's from "Putres Ka!!" which is an alternate for "P..... I..!!" a Tagalog Slang for "Son Of A Bitch". Wheeew!! Calling MTRCB!! Ha Ha Ha!! I still remember when PUT3SKA was very explosive in the PHILIPPINE Music Scene back in the 90s since their beats were very different from the rest of the bands in the Philippine Alternative Scene during those times and it infused a relatively new kind of genre for the common Filipino Music Enthusiast to get along with. The band was just great in 1995 that they won "BEST LIVE ACT", "BEST NEW ARTIST" and "BEST VOCALIST"(Myra David-Ruaro) in the "1995 NU107 Rock Awards". Although I only saw the band performed LIVE twice, definitely those were indeed great music vibes back then. As the title of their second and which was also their last album would say "MANILA'S FINEST". YUP!! I definitely consider them as one of MANILA'S FINEST band indeed!! Their 1995 self-titled debut album "PUT3SKA" jilted a classic rendition of URBAN BANDIT's "MANILA GIRL". The song was an original song/composition of URBAN BANDITS back in the 80s under the Legendary Pinoy underground record label "TWISTED RED CROSS". Btw, I already featured Tommy Tanchanco's TWISTED RED CROSS here in my little blog "The Doctor Is In" back in December 2008 so check it out on my blog archives labels. The PUT3SKA version was a big hit here in MANILA back in those days that even EAT BULAGA used the song as an entry song for their own Round Girl Jessica Cortez aka. Samantha Lopez or better known as "GRACIA". KABAYANS, you'll definitely remember JOEY DE LEON shouting "GRACIAAAAAA!!" then the song "MANILA GIRL" would signal the entry of Miss Samantha Lopez aka. "GRACIA". Wheeew!! This was the 90s so GRACIA was really very hot and sexy back then. MEMORIES INDEED!! Ha Ha Ha!!

Well, since today JUNE 24, 2010 we are celebrating "ARAW NG MAYNILA" in English "MANILA DAY" then may I present you "GRACIAAAA!!" este "MANILA GIRL" by PUT3SKA. Let's relive those good ol' days and listen to MANILA GIRL!! I uploaded the song for you to enjoy!! I really love the beat and the horn section of this classic song. A very different flavor indeed from the original URBAN BANDITS arrangement which I also love. THANKS for dropping by again guys!!





BELLE & SEBASTIAN- Funny Little Frog

BELLE & SEBASTIAN are an Indiepop band formed in Glasgow by Stuart Murdoch and Stuart David back in 1996 that started as a so-called "school project". The band took It's name from a FRENCH Children's Television series about a boy and his dog. Murdoch assembled the seven-piece Belle & Sebastian for his final project featuring himself on guitar and vocals and recruited members by instinct in a local all-night cafe in late 1995. Among the people chosen back then were Sarah Martin on violin, Stevie Jackson on guitar, Chris Geddes on keyboards, Stuart David on bass, Richard Colburn on drums, and Isobel Campbell on cello. "FUNNY LITTLE FROG" was first played here in MANILA by JAM 88.3 back in 2006 which became an instant hit for followers of the radio station. This was the very first single lifted from their 2006 album entitled "The Life Pursuit". "Funny Little Frog" reached #13 in the U.K Charts. Well, this is one of my ultimate favorites from the band so I hope you'll like the song too. I uploaded the song for your listening pleasure just in case you wanna have a copy. ENJOY THE MUZIC!! THANKS for dropping by again guys!!
