    After news broke about The Jerks frontman Chickoy Pura’s battle with the Big C, many friends and musikeros got together to do fundraising gigs. This is what we do after all in a country where artists have no unions, and they are left on their own to deal with health and security needs. This is also what “RAGE! Presents: Rak for Chickoy” wants to do. Plus extra.   Organized by musician and writer Aldus Santos, music writer and concert producer Ian Urrutia, and arts and culture critic Katrina Santiago, the goal of “Rage!” is not just to raise funds, but also to bring in a young(er) audience and introduce them to the music of Chickoy. The task was to have younger bands and musicians perform a cover or two of a Jerks song. It’s really hitting two birds with one stone: we help Chickoy out, but also we pay tribute to him and the work he’s done for local music, the example he’s set for many musicians and cultural workers in this country.   After all, while not as famous as the rakenrol bands of the ‘60s, the ‘80s punk scene had as one of its icons Chickoy, doing music that stood for the rebellions of those times, seeing as it did the socio-political shift from dictatorship to democracy and finding it wanting. The Jerks’ music continues to resonate because it knew in the ‘80s what we now all know about nation and governance: the leaders change, but not much else does.   Chickoy’s persona is also interwoven with his being a musikero for the people. A fixture in protests against tyranny and human rights violations, a constant voice talking about landlordism and oppression, farmers’ rights and poverty, his songs are a measure of how the best ones can cross over from the airwaves to the streets, from the gig to the protest.   This event is itself inspired by one of his band’s more famous songs called “Rage,” and as inspired by him, it is hoped that “Rage! Presents” can become a sustainable project for gathering younger music audiences to talk about the musicians that are important, but also to discuss relevant issues of nation.   “Rage! Presents Rak For Chickoy” happens on September 18, 2019, Wednesday, 8:00PM at Saguijo in Makati. Playing are Ultracombo (featuring Rayms, Buddy, and Paulo), Ebe Dancel, Johnoy Danao, Bullet Dumas, Autotelic, The Purplechickens, and Pikoy. ***

    Gloc-9 goes indie with “Dungaw”After 22 years, seven studio albums, three EPs, and two decades of iconic hits, rap icon Gloc-9 is shifting gears and going independent.And the song “Dungaw” featuring Keiko Necesario is the best song to do it with.Known to work with different voices and perspectives in his songs, this time around Gloc-9 speaks in the voice of an unnamed man, confused about the visits he was receiving, wondering about the moment the song captures. As the song unravels, so does the story of this man’s life, the choices he had made, the ones that led him to this point.But the final punch is in the the song’s culmination, when a final visitor allows him to ask a battery of painful questions. Why does suffering continue for many? Why are certain sins not forgiven? Why do the wealthy get away with anything? Why is there privilege, and why is there poverty?The answers are in the mere fact that these questions are being asked.Here, Gloc-9 reveals yet again that his power lies in his storytelling. That it is his songwriting that is his constant, and that it can only get better with age as he continues to insist not just on creative growth, but also and more importantly on speaking about the lives that we refuse to see, taking on the voices we refuse to hear.And just as the narrative in “Dungaw” unfolds, so does Gloc-9’s new chapter as an independent rapper and songwriter.Take a peak at “Dungaw,” and welcome Gloc-9 into the indie fold. ***

    Singer-songwriter folk pop artist Syd Hartha opens up to the public about her experience with her father, former Eraserheads lead guitarist Marcus Adoro.     On Thursday, Syd managed to break her silence and spoke up about the sensitive topic of abuse and how she grew up looking for a father. It says so in her statement that in a span of almost a year of finally getting connected with him (Adoro), then she came to experience different kinds of abuse; eventually realizing why she was protected and was kept a safe distance from her own father.  Syd wrapped up her lengthy and heart-wrenching post by saying she still carries the fear up to this day, that history might repeat itself or to another victim. Included in the photos that went with the post was a conversation with Barbara Ruaro, her dad’s ex-partner who was first to speak up about experiencing abuse albeit not dropping any names when she posted it.
