Inside This Issue:
Goodbye Pain, Hello World
Mon Castro and The Pin-Up Girls are ready to conquer the world with a new release and with the plans of a US Tour finally pushing through, after years of slugging it out in the local independent circuit.
Foot Switches, Transformers, and Bass Amps
You'd think these are relatively easy objects you'd find anywhere in the Philippines, but as Korean Thrash Metal outfit Mahatma found out, it's hard as hell to find one of these when you're just about ready to blow away 25,000+ rock fans onstage at the PULP Summer Slam.
By the time this comes out, the New Jersey-based, pioneering post-hardcore outfit Thursday would have already played their two shows here in the country, the first Geoff Rickly and his band has ever been to the Philippines. But in this exclusive e-mail interview, we find out that the singer apparently has a particular connection to us Filipinos.
Swing and Shout
Slick and swinging and undeniably hip, the Bembol Rockers wax nostalgic for the 50s: a time when style was proportionate to sensibility, and making music meant more than just striking a pose.
You Weren't There? Then You Suck!
It's pretty un-fucking-believable if you missed the PULP Summer Slam Forever, this year's biggest rock show with five international acts kicking serious ass, led by the almighty Darkest Hour. If you were there, check our humongous 20-page layout, and see if you can find yourself there!
