Found an article written by Quark Henares in the year 2000 on the state of Pinoy Rock.
This was supposed to be a surprise for Quark last year for his birthday, but when I told him that I had a surprise he said I just ruined it. So I delayed it until he probably forgot that I had something for him by now.
Quark says, “Do You remember the time when the Eraserheads would outsell Ariel Rivera? You should”. That sentence is all sorts of win. I keep reading this article again and again and having been too young before (I was in 7th grade in 1997 sheltered in an all girl Catholic school), I notice that there’s not much difference now — We’re still curious, wondering, planning on the next step assessing which bands made a mark and who’s going to grab that empty throne in the years to come.
