Yup, you read it right. There's an Eheads song up there. Check out the write-up for "You Make Me" (w/ streaming video, as of July 2005) at! This song was part of the EP that the Heads released, entitled "Please Transpose" (I'd LOVE to have a copy of this), with Kris Dancel as frontwoman. Eheads pa talaga sila nun, hindi pa Cambio, and Diego and Ebe weren't there yet.

There's also a track there by A.D.D. ("Di Ko Na Alam"), a side-project by David Aguirre (Razorback) and Wolf Gemora (Wolfgang) when they were both still based here in the Philippines. Another A.D.D. track, "House of Lies", is now being performed by Lokomotiv in the States. Lokomotiv is Basti Artadi and Wolf Gemora (Wolfgang), David Aguirre, and Danny Gonzales (a Mexican-American), and is based in the States. They've been rockin out there for quite some time now (even fronting for PNE during their US tour, I believe); I can't wait for them to release an album (which, hopefully, would find its way to Philippine shores).

Basta check out the disc, lots of great indie acts out there. Some of them are Manila-based, may mga taga-Cebu (like Cattski - great band!), and there even are Fil-Am acts based abroad. Sulit ang P250 :)

And, of course, wag sana itong ipirata ng mga magnanakaw na yan ;)
