Techisoba Vs. Midi OK visits Manila

Techisoba Vs. Midi OK! are flying into Manila today and will be there until December 24.

They are there on a special project that I can't talk about right now but you might be able to catch them making rounds over at the Sonic Boom night on December 20.

Will they be performing? It's doubtful since they are there to work on polishing their skills, mixing and mastering their upcoming album and that secret project I mentioned earlier.

That's the update on the electronica duo from Cebu. We do hope that you can catch up with them during their stay there and who knows? A surprise performance perhaps? If they are not too busy working hopefully.

We are more than ecstatic to tell you that Faspitch has been chosen as Handuraw's Artist of the Month for December! This is quite an honor as they close off the great year of 2006!

It'll only be Php120 to get in and I believe that comes with the usual beer or pizza, so come down and rock out with some of the best in Cebu!



Because of the uncivilized behavior of some of our fellow surfers I decided to turn off the shout box. Yes, you all have the rights to criticize...the only thing is you cannot do it here in my blog...because this is MY blog...I advice you to make your own anti-bisrock blog and shout there all stupid insults you could muster.

I had a drink with my friends last night at Handuraw. The entrance is free since only neophyte bands were playing. I kinda enjoyed some songs but some are too lousy...Anyways, I was kinda surprised when I entered the "bisrock" term at and they gave me a result. I used to search that term before but only gave me links but now they give me a concrete definition of the term "bisrock". So here it is...

BisRock refers to the Cebuano rock music industry. The term comes from the words Bisaya ('our own') and 'rock' (for rock music).
The term was coined by Januar E. Yap, a Cebuano writer, in 2002. It was first applied to Missing Filemon's first album.


The use of the Cebuano language by Cebu-based bands has never been popular due to the predominance of Tagalog and English songs even in the playlists of Cebu-based FM radio stations. Urbandub, Sheila and the Insects, The Ambassadors and Cueshé are some of the Cebuano rock bands which have gained national fame yet didn't release a Cebuano single. Certainly, the use of Cebuano was not the path to national fame.
Against this unwritten rule, some Cebuano rock bands started popularizing rock songs using the Cebuano language. Among these bands are the following:

* Aggressive Audio
* Blood of the Stone
* Gangrene
* Glass of Dirt
* Indephums
* Jimmycycle
* Mantequilla
* Missing Filemon
* Phylum
* Scrambled Eggs
* Timeslot

93.1 Smash FM helped these budding bands by featuring their songs on-air.
The popularity of BisRock is attributed by Januar Yap to the reaction of Cebuanos against the claims of the Cebu Pop Music Festival.


It is a common misconception that BisRock bands are just after the popularity and they are willing to distribute their songs even by pirate networks. However, from their web sites available on the net, it is obvious that they are trying to sell their CDs through legitimate channels.

All of these stores are located in the City of Cebu

* MANU, 2nd floor, Elizabeth Mall
* A. Salonga, Lower Ground Floor, SM City Cebu
* JB Music, 3rd Floor, SM City Cebu


BisRock lyrics are considered by some to be without literary value. Basic grammatical rules are also disregarded.

Yap has this to say about the criticisms of BisRock:
"Kill all the critics. Or let them compose their own songs. Seriously, that's not even the issue now. What is important is the young's burgeoning interest to make songs in their own language. That is for me magical. Every now and then, there will be some of them who'll be dishing out songs with a literary flair. In fact, that's happening now. Literary value and grammar? Oh, hell, let the critics reread Frank Sinatra or Air Supply."


* The Ambassadors' Simple Changes did contain one song (Ulipon) in Cebuano, but this was a hidden track attached after one of the album's regular songs. You have to scan carefully the small print on the cover to find the title of the song.

* Junior Kilat's Budoy s Ako si M-16 during the grand opening night of Pinoy Big Brother: Celebrity Edition. (However, strictly speaking, Budoy and Junior Kilat is not part of BisRock, but of an earlier--if not separate--movement in Cebuano music which is called RnB for Reggae na Bisaya.)

Sidney Alburo - Mic, Acoustic Guitars, Agik-ik Eugene Corpin - Vocals, Taghoy, Inamaw, Pasi-aw, Latagaw, Prayer Randolf Silvano - Current Lead GUitarist, Pahiyum Joel Ablanque - Percussion, Drums, Relo, Tago sa tom-tom Vincent Ngalis - BAho de Arko, Baho, Baho, Baho Aggressive Audio started jamming together as early as the summer of 2000. The original band members were a bunch of altar boys and choir members in a parish in cebu.
The band’s primary influence are songs heard over the church and contemporary christian music,other of the band’s influence varies and is quite diffrent with each other’s interests but that what makes the band’s sound and feel includes the 80’s rock, the classics,Love songs, guitar instrumental, the blues, nu-metal, smooth jazz, etc. etc. Aggressive audio consider themselves as a jam band, and mainly considers the thought of playing by feel than by memory. MC Rey Nadela was also a choir in the same church the band was in, and Brownian Method was In full swing back then, he helped the band to perform at a yearly concert in Cebu which is called Yukbo: Ang Konsyierto for 3 consecutive years and bieng the live band for his songs instead of backing tracks played at some occasions.
The band would soon start playing numerous invites within cebu. Thay have also performed at YAMAHA recitals and performing as back-up bands for the recitalists and started playing at Kahayag Café around 2003. Then began writing some songs, “Don’t Ever” is marked as the 1st song composed by the band with the leading composer Eugene Corpin and Sidney Alburo. Since then the band has been composing songs and began writing Bisaya as the primary choice of words. Pwerteng Lingina was recorded last 2005 and released as an independent record which inclueds most of the overplayed Bisrock songs in Cebu like Senior Citizen, Lingin, Tangkong and Cok-kuto.
Currently, the band has been working on their follow-up album (independent), our preview tracks for that album and what you will be expecting from the band soon. Tracks include Feeling Lang, Adoloscence, Liar Evil and First Timer. Former guitar player Archie Uy will be producing the new record and at the same time (still) playing guitars for the next album with the current Aggressive Audio guitarist Randolf Silvano. Expect the album within this year with a full length release. This new album will be recorded at Backyard Project Studios and in Wisconsin, USA with the assistance and guidance of Kerryl Demetrio.

Sudden Change

Sudden Change

As of 9:35 this mornin' I decided to remove the links for downloadable bisrock songs due to some legal reasons...ehmmn...don't really have any bad intentions...a big apology for all the people who get mad because of what I did...


My fave bisrock songs

Senseless Song

Well, I really, really love this friggin' song from my fave bisrock band "The Ambassadors". Dunno why, but the message of its lyrics seems to laugh at me every time I sing it loud. Maybe it's because I'm very emotional and I always think that every emo stuff I see and hear is fuckin' related with my friggin' emotions. Well, it is actually "Forever", another song from that band that I first fell in love with. Someone close to my heart dedicated it to me.

Handuraw Cafe

Well, I'm kinda busy these past few days that I haven't had any time to drop by there. I really want to watch every bisrock gigs there but time is my worst enemy. I actually hope that the place will be renovated. I mean Handuraw's space seems to become smaller and smaller as bisrock followers increase in number. The cafe's management should consider a little renovation to accommodate the increasing number of bisrock fanatics who often hang out in there. Ehmmn...what else? For MP3 and Lyrics request don't hesitate to go to Immortality Forum.

Jah Bless!

Indephums was derived from the word "Indep" meaning Independent and "hums" meaning Humans.. We have choosen this name because we the four of us (ronan, ryan, renan, & ray) are independent humans. But manawag jud gahapon mig mama and papa oi. =)
The story of the Band:

one day isang araw usa ka adlaw, around at pardo cebu city. ronan (bass)was standing along the road, suddenly renan (gtars) & ryan (drums) saw ronan and approached him and ask him to form an alternative yet heavey rock band. then the story goes on, the first vocalist of the band was thomas. later, he left the band and brylle steps into the scene. the band decided to record compositions around august 2005.
September 30, 2005, there was this band compe in a certain mall in cebu city. in there the band met ray (vox) performing for his band hunchbox. later, the band decided to replace brylle for some private reasons.After that ronan contact ray and asks if he knows someone who could sing for indephums. Ray did audition at the band. after their first jam with ray, the band let him in. Now, indephums is concentrating on BisRock (bisaya rock) composition. Thanks sa mga banda nga nag-impluwensha sa indephums to do so.

Urbandub’s New Video Out Now! and Faspitch CDs available on the Internet!

Urbandub’s New Video Out Now!

Great news for all you Dubistas and new fanatics out there! Urbandub has just released the video for their next single Endless, A Silent Whisper! Its off of their album EMBRACE under EMI Philippines.

This is a real treat because for those who had seen the First of Summer video, this is its continuation. Now, we all know that you all had questions about the FOS video and the answers are all found in the new video for Endless, A Silent Whisper. Let me give you a hint: If you all thought that the FOS video was a little too pretentious, it was meant to be! And the reality of Urbandubs message is found in the new video, so we all hope that you get to catch it on TV!

So far, MYX has been cool enough to air it on their station and they have been airing a special with an Urbandub interview as well as the two videos (First of Summer and Endless, A Silent Whisper) back to back! Stay tuned to the tube so that you can catch that!

Faspitch CDs available on the Internet!

Faspitchs debut album The Future of Ear Repair is now available through two sites on the Internet. As most of you know, you can grab a copy on and we encourage you to tell your friends outside of the country as well.

The Future of Ear Repair is also available on the CD Baby website ( For those of you who are having a difficult time getting the CD in record stores, these are online alternatives.

Formed in 2000, Faspitch is an abstract-metal quintet and yet another addition to the ever-growing Sound Of The South. Prepared, focused and united, Faspitch offers a smorgasbord of metal crashes mixed with drum & bass and old-school grunge.

Perhaps it may be too difficult to box them into a particular category but Faspitch is not one to be easily described. The band is oftentimes mistaken to be a bit of everything that falls under the current listener trend. Faspitch, however, is a band to be experienced, not just heard. Off-stage, the guys are constantly hacking over ideas on how to change their sound. On-stage, the experiment takes place, their presence always leaving an audience gaping in wonder about what just happened.

For those who are not so familiar with the band, however, the band released their first single, Staying This Way on the airwaves, later following it up with A Day Before Pisces which is gaining more ground and building up their music / fan community. This is what prompted the band to take a step further in releasing a full-length album. They inked a deal with Lighter Records on April 1, 2005. Their second single is also available in the compilation FULL VOLUME, which was released by EMI Records and includes tracks from their label mates, Urbandub and The Ambassadors. Incidentally, some listeners may already know Russell Manaloto (lead guitarist), who was kind enough to lend his talent to Urbandub after John Dinopol's accident almost a year ago. Russell now has his full attention geared towards Faspitch.
Faspitch's goal is as typical as any other band's aim to take music to the next level. They do believe, however, that in order for their crash and grind formula to work, they have to work hard. Individually, they train themselves to concentrate more on their skills as musicians. This is made clear in their newly released, year-long project and debut album The Future Of Ear Repair which is available in selected places today. The album was launched in April 21, 2006 and their new single All Under Heaven is gaining more airplay on a nationwide scale. There are great expectations that the band is going to be something massive and that they are set to rock the scene. This is something that the band knows. And they do know one other thing: Faspitch is ready.
