Break Ups and Hang Ups

Wednesday, April 01, 2015

There is nothing more in this world that I wish more than for this terrible news to be an April Fool's joke. 

Urbandub has been my favorite band since the moment I saw them in In the Raw. Soul Searching was stuck in my head for weeks on end. As long as I could, I would go to their gigs here in my city.

I remember years ago, they played in this hip venue here. It was a little intimate because it wasn't that big a venue, but they still rocked the place like it was a massive field. My friends and I got to go backstage, and I got too excited to have pictures taken with them, I didn't know it was the guitar case I was stepping on! A crew scolded me and all I could do was say a little sorry then left to pursue the Gab, the vocalist. Hahahahaha! Those were good times.

As years passed, their music evolved and became better but it was still them. They were still the Urbandub that I listened to in the heydays of NU 107.

I don't like saying it, nor think about it, but great bands of my time had slowly been disbanding, sort of like a trend. Some go solo to experiment and enhance their creativity, some just want to be live a peaceful  life, some pursue a different path, and others, they just disappear.

Ebe Dancel tweeted of his leaving Sugarfree to go solo on January 7, 2011.

Bamboo disbanded before midnight of January 11, 2011

Ria Bautista posted a note on the band's fb page.
And most recently, Kamikazee announced disbanding, on January 24 this year.

Magandang Umaga mga Romanticos!
