A Fraction Of A Second with The Mongols

Here's another EP...this one came out in Mid-2003. The CDR-EP is called "A Fraction Of A Second" and was released by the band called The Mongols. After the implosion of two bands called Eraserheads and Teeth, some members of both bands decided to form The Mongols. Initially they played cover songs of both their former outfits plus the occasional Velvet Underground songs but eventually they made several original compositions and like the songs in this EP, the songs are a bit louder and hard edged melodic rock. This CDR-EP was independently produced by the band and all the CDRs had different hand-made designs of sorts...DIY and released under their own RedRum Records.

The members of the group are Jesus "Dizzy" Ventura aka Ely Buendia on vocals and guitars (ex-Eraserheads), J "Astro" Velasco aka Jerome Velasco on guitars (ex-Teeth, Daydream Cycle & Slave Drum), Bogs "d lite" Jugo on drums (also of Daydream Cycle) and Yan Yuzon on vocals and bass. Although short lived, the band made some great songs and would eventually lead up to the current band called, Pupil.

here's a video of "Keeper" which was released in their debut album, "Buddha's Pest".

Thanks to one of the co-Directors, Manie Magbanua Jr. for posting this in YouTube!
