Cueshe review before I found them unlikable

Now they suck. Their musical greatness just deteriorated over the past two years. If you’re an artist, don’t do it for the masses or record companies. Experiment. Reinvent. Do it for the love of making music and not for album sales.

Cueshé’s Half Empty, Half Full

Subsequent to the emergence of South Border and Freestyle comes another addition to the roster of discovered artists down south. Cueshé’s (pronounced as q-shay) career jumpstarted in Cebu doing several gigs around Visayas and Mindanao until they decided to penetrate the metropolis’ music scene.

Originally named as Green Horn, the band formed during the late 90s with its remaining members Michael Manaloto on drums, lead guitarist Jovan Mabini, and bassist Fritz Labrado. It later became Cueshé in 2000, derived from their post-rehearsal craving banana cue and former “she” vocalist Dhee Francisco. Jay Justiniani (vocals) joined the group after meeting their manager while Jhunjie Dosdos (keyboards) is acquainted with Fritz. Completing the line up after auditioning is Ruben Caballero (vocals and guitar).

Rising Pinoy Soul Music Artist: Sino Sikat

First heard the group (can’t exactly say “saw” because my eyes are near-sighted. I can only see the silhouette of Kat Agarrado [vocals], Nick Azarcon [guitars], Reli de Vera [drums] and Nikki Cabardo [keyboard]) perform live at the Indie Festival at Le Pavillion in Roxas Boulevard, Pasay City last December of 2005. They sang “Akin Ka”.

Who’s getting more popular nowadays? Definitely it’s Sino Sikat. Support Original Pilipino Music! Their full-length debut album is out now. The songs in the following videos are included in their released CD.

Countdown to 2007 VMAs

I won’t be able to catch this year’s MTV Video Music Awards on TV since MTV Philippines already switched to cable. The show happens on the 9th of September at Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas. Looking forward who’s hosting it.

Digging in with this VMA performance by Britney Spears in 2000 this morning. Her skin-toned suit, her energy, her body and the audience- truly memorable.

Hot girlfriend, not so good looking boyfriend

These guys are very lucky to have these girls. It must be really true love.
