They plays a fusion of Blues, Rock, Classical, Metal, Standard, Jazz, RnB, Electronika and other musical styles they?ve grown up with including ?kundiman? (Phil. Folk Music). Started in 2000 and not sticking to one particular music genre their debut twin album was released in 2001, one album was ?live? and the other was Industrial/Electronica. Since then they have not stopped creating music and boasted of 5 indie albums and one E.P. so far.
Several of their original tracks can be heard on the radios nationwide especially in Vis-Min areas while other tracks were featured as soundtracks in local and national released Indie Films as well as a major Philippine movie.

Based in Cebu, Philippines they are considered as one of the pioneering DIY musical artists in Vis-Min area, innovative, provocative, and independent bands out there locally, and sometimes considered as musical pranksters by their contemporaries best known for their live performance antics, timeless tunes and sexualy induced lyrics.

Currently they are buzy with everday jobs and occational live gigs around Cebu and provinces. Watch out for their upcoming 6th and 7th album to be double released hopefully before the year 2010 ends.

Green Day To Drop Awesome Live Album/DVD In March

While a track list isn't available, band has hinted that 'Cigarettes and Valentines' could make the cut.
For years now, Green Day have made a point of turning their live shows into all-out arena-rock events, complete with gratuitous pyro, even more gratuitous stage props (T-shirt launchers, toilet-paper guns, water cannons, etc.), and, of course, some good-old-fashioned crowd participation
And now, they're packaging all that madness for the masses, with the appropriately titled Awesome as F---, a live CD/DVD set to hit stores March 15.
That's according to a spokesperson for their label, Reprise Records, though eagle-eyed fans probably could have guessed something was in the works as far back as August, when the band took to their Twitter account to announce, "We've been recording our live shows since the beginning of tour. Possible live album coming. A ton of songs!"
In other tweets, they encouraged fans to bring "Awesome as F---" signs to shows and even hinted that a version of "Cigarettes and Valentines" - a song from their now-legendary scrapped album that pre-dated American Idiot, which they performed live for the first time during an August show in Denver - would appear on the album.
Awesome as F--- is already listed on as a two-disc set. At press time, a track list for the album was not available. Green Day's last live album was 2005's Bullet in a Bible, recorded at the Milton Keynes National Bowl in England. Last year, they also released a mini live set, Last Night on Earth, taken from a performance in Tokyo.
