Many of my friends were asking how and when did I join The Camerawalls. There's actually a very short story about it, so here I go...
Clementine, Law, and I were friends since 1999, that's when the Orange and Lemons days started. I was with another band back then, doing alternate gigs with them in a certain bar in Bulacan. After many years, we remained friends and kept in touch through chat and text messages. The last time I saw ONL was 2006, when Clem invited me to come over and watch their gig at 70's Bistro. Then I heard about the band's break-up a few months after.
We’d like to further share the results of our performance (originally blogged at Lilystars Records) in that dark pub where we always like to play called Route 196 during The POP Shoppe! tribute to Burt Bacharach on March 3. We are lucky to have Kate Torralba as part of the line-up of artists performing and even luckier to have her on stage with us the whole time.
She recently recorded piano for one of our songs in Bread And Circuses EP called “My Life’s Arithmetic Means” and we were able to jam it together for the first time live that night. It was the first song and she never left our side, jamming with all our Bacharach covers, a couple more original songs, and sang a lady version of “Girlfriend In A Coma” by The Smiths. Fun night! We ended up closing the bar at 3:30am.
