Ride on the slick music of Pedicab's Tugish Takish

The songs in this album are so damn catchy. I don't think you'll end up sitting down if you place this dics in your player...ok, if you're not the dancing type, like me, then you'd probably stomp your feet, tap your fingers on the table or start nodding your head back and forth to the beat. It's like hook laden drone music, with big beats, repetitive guitar lines and quirky lyrics that would convert even a non-fan to their musical assault on their ears.
They have a wide range of influences which you can hear in this 10 track debut album...from the post-punk riffs of Gang of Four, even Britpop Wire-influenced band, Elastica to newer so called New Wave of New Wave bands with 80s influences like The Bloc Party, Franz Ferdinand or Interpol, etc

This band was formed back in 2004 and released their debut album called "Tugish Takish" in 2005. The band is made up of --
Mappy aka Diego Mapa (lead vocals)(Monsterbot and Cambio)
Masterbeat (extra Service) aka Mike Dizon (Drums)(ex-Teeth and Sandwich)
J.Sonic aka Jason Caballa (Guitar)(ex-Twisted Halo)
Just Tony aka RA Rivera (Visuals and Multimedia)
Sugar Raims aka Raimund Marasigan (Keyboards, Synth, Backing Vox)(ex-Eraserheads, Cambio, Sandwich, Squid 9, etc.)
