These Guys Packed A Punch Like Manny Paquiao!

Juan DeLa Cruz
Ripped @ 256

 If Himig Natin is the first, then this is the second and only other official compact release of music by hard-rock powerhouse power trio (a band, not a man) from the Phillippines, who flourished in the 1970's. Totally rocked out bluesy stoner jams, with sex and party obsessed lyrics that are pure rock 'n' roll. Maskara was originally released in 1974. It's the band's second studio album, and is another outstanding collection of heavy duty rockers featuring the classic band line-up of Wally Gonzales, Mike Hanopol, and Joey "Pepe" Smith. Highlights abound: Pinoy Blues, Nadapa Sa Arina, Beep Beep, We Love You, Palengke, and Pagod Sa Pahinga, quite a few of which were featured on the unofficial Shake Your Brains disc from a few years ago.
