Intro of sorts, this blog is just a look at the past, present & future of the assorted music released by bands & artists in the Philippines & the numerous ones based outside the motherland...from Rock, Reggae, Alternative, Folk, Indiepop, Electronica, New Wave, Goth, Punk, etc. Well, some did ask me, why do I have to call it POP...'my music is this and that and it's anything but' you might say...well, click here for the reason. Anyway, turn up the volume!

Newflash from somewhere...anywhere...

I just heard thru the grapevine that Sony-BMG (Phillippines) has been or will be "re-releasing" some 2 in 1 albums...namely from Sugar Hiccup (Oracle and Womb)...Color It Red (first two albums? not really sure which ones...I need to confirm this)...Yano, etc....Now this made me think of what Morrissey was singing in The Smiths' song "Paint A Vulgar Picture" --

"Re-Issue! Re-Package!
Re-Package! Re-Evaluate The Songs --
Double Pack With a Photograph,
Extra Track and a Tacky Badge..."

I'm just wondering if they're just releasing these cds because some of the bands, after a long hiatus, recently released new, "come-back" albums this year or it's just a cash grab because of the interest in band music nowadays...? who knows the real deal? Anyway, I featured Sugar Hiccup's ORACLE here a few weeks ago and mentioned that the album was already out of print, and now it's not! Yipeee...so that's great news to the people who are still on the hunt...for the people who missed out buying the CDs the first time it came out...or the people who just bought a cassette version of the album (time to let your tape rest). I just hope they make great CD covers and sleeves...with a bit of materials in it...not the cheesy, simple, bland sleeves they've been coming out with for recent cd re-issues...i.e. no info whatsoever...

I hope I see these 2 in 1 re-issues soon...er, if you don't like em, well, just put them aside in your shelf, together with Re-Issued New Albums with Extra Tracks (definitely a fan-alienating cash grab idea!!) or don't buy them at all...BUT if you're missing out on some of the old albums or missing some songs....then this is a good set to buy! more bang for your money...2 birds with one stone...how can you go wrong with that?

Sure thing Ken,
Just email it here so people can see the artwork of the re-issues...It might take awhile before I can get my hands on some copies for my collection!
cheers!
