Deo, one of the best web designer I know, was also the chief songwriter of Crude Oz Band. Yup, this very artistic musician was been my office mate. I heard him sing a couple of times but with his original composition, wowee! Very impressive.
They are not sound like another alternative band. In fact, their sound has the feel of the old with a touch of modern beats. Still they maintained an original and distinctive pop rock rhythm. Well, two of their songs, “Nasaan Ka?” and “Invisible Chains,” have both been named Track of the Week this year, by NU107.
Check out their first album “The Straightjacket“. You can enjoy and download it for FREE.
Lenin, the band’s bassist has this to say: Pinili namin yung title na Straightjacket kasi yung karamihan ng mga kanta ay parang galing sa isang taong nababaliw na dahil sa mga karanasan nya. Syempre lahat nung mga nababaliw eh kadalasan nakastraghtjacket di ba. Isa pang dahilan ay dahil matagal nang naipun ang mga kantang ‘to. Parang lahat nung damdamin, gigil na gigil nang makawala, so parang pag binuksan nyo yung cd at pinakinggan mo yung mga kanta, pinakawalan mo na rin kami sa wakas sa aming straghtjacket.
