Polly (MAXI SINGLE) - The Colloidal Mixtures (free dload)

Cracker Polly

Remembering late '92, t'was when The Colloidals adapted Polly as part of their repertoire in their live gigs. Despite Nevermind already a massive hit in the international charts, they actually based their rendition on the track from the lesser known Incesticide album, the one dubbed as (New Wave )Polly. Opening for The Bottles (fs&c's previous incarnation) farewell gig in early '93, The band showed no mercy onstage playing their punk and prog-rock inspired versions of tracks by Metallica, Helmet, Living Colour, as well as their original compositions, and of course this particular track by Nirvana. Little did we know back then that Kurt Cobain will somehow become our generation's Ian Curtis a year later. The biggest regret really was we never got to capture their performance on video as it turned out to be their last gig as a band as well. Now, I don't mean to go esoteric here, but last month I dreamt of 'em playing Polly, which made me email Ian (The Colloidals frontman) and suggested to him to do an updated (albeit re-arranged) version based on his long obsession of mod music (suffice it to say, he's a big fan of The Jam as well), to which of course he said yes with much excitement. In fact, the man is so excited with this development, that he is currently working on a full-on covers EP, featuring his take on modern classics from The Smithereens, and the Violent Femmes to name but a few. The said EP is slated for release late this year via SSS naturally. Anyhoo, with this "mod-ified" version, Ian said: "wherever he is, I hope it'll make Kurt crack a little smile, as he remembers his pre-stardom days when he all wanted was to play his brand of Pixies and Dwarves inspired punk rock , and grunge wasn’t even considered a genre yet by the fuckin’ music press". To which I replied: "The only band who actually embraced the dodgy term (sarcastically I suppose) was Mudhoney, and no one else that I know of". So we say…long live Polly (and Mark Arm too)!

Barbi according to Jasper …

Barbi Na Doll=bnd

…is a concept band that plays "melodic" originals and some covers w/ influences from pop/rock/dance/new wave/fusion/ OPM w/ a strong Negrense spirit. The meaning is literally "Barbie Doll" in the vernacular. Barbie has come to be the symbol of the ultimate in feminine. She represents our aspirations, our admirations, our frustrations.

Formed in 2005 (with Original drummer Benji Apoyon), coming from different groups. Most of us are from "Gadfly," a locally known band in Negros. Based in Bacolod City, the band regularly plays in different bars, major events, private functions, and out of town gigs. The band has also appeared on TV and in print as well as on the radio. We have also had the privilege of opening w/ different OPM bands.

Our ultimate goal is to have a record deal with a major label that will help us produce our album.

To FoodShelterAndClothing "salamat gid sa Cybersong", hehe. And cheers to SSS Records, Thanks Amigos!
