Pre-punk, post-grunge. That is how this band describes its kind of music, a kind you dont usually hear in the airwaves or ones mp3 player. Just what is it anyway?
If their type of music puzzles a lot of music-lovers out there (and even fellow musicians), wait until you hear the bands name. Who would, in their right state of mind, name their band Orgasm Addicts? Even the band members themselves good-naturedly describe their bands name as absurd.
For the bands four members, they have gotten used to such questions. For vocalist/guitarist Cris del Rosario, guitarist gHe, bassist kaniko_kiko, and drummer kAnGkEr, questions like those are just part of the work they profess their love to music.
More importantly, these questions reflect the increasing interest of music aficionados over the fresh and dynamic music of Orgasm Addicts. The bands unique blend of alternative, punk-rock and grunge and the complex musicality of the members make it stand out from the gamut of bands crowding the mainstream and indie markets today.
Orgasm Addicts, indeed, has gone a long way. The band members can tell anyone with a glee how the band has been formed in November 2003 by members of PulpCommunity, the online music forum of Pulp, the popular music magazine. It was Cris who looked among fellow PulpCommunity members that he knew since the online community started on September 2002, for the band members. gHe, kaniko_kiko, and kAnGkEr were the ones who answered the call. Unlike other bands which were already formed when they joined the online forum, band members said, Orgasm Addicts started in PulpCommunity, making Orgasm Addicts the online forums punked-up, grunge-savvy child.
Three years since then, Orgasm Addicts still rocks hard, probably one of the hardest-working groups in the band circuit today. Friends and supporters of Orgasm Addicts keep growing, following the bands gigs all over the metropolis.
Come November 25 (Saturday), Orgasm Addicts will show to the whole world the type of music they play, and why the words orgasm and addicts are perfect for the bands name. Finally, after years of hard work and critical collaboration, music lovers are invited to attend the EP launching of Orgasm Addicts at Mayrics, 7 pm.
The bands much-awaited EP, Lilyput, contains four songs, some of which have received favorable feedback from listeners. The songs are:
