The Gentle Sound of Chaos
WHO: Japs Sergio (guitars/vocals), Francis “Brew” Reyes (guitars), Macky Macaventa (bass), and Kurt Floreska (drums). Sergio is a former Rivermaya, Reyes bent chords for The Dawn, Floreska bashed skins for pop-rockers Soapdish, and Macaventa came from Milagros Dancehall Collective. So Peso Movement is an indie supergroup of sorts.
WHAT: Peso Movement came together in 2011 and their collective experience should give them a couple of legs up your typical freshmen who just wanna rock. But they would rather describe themselves as a new band. It may help that Japs Sergio calls their music “dirty rock.” Guitarist Francis Brew says he plays “fuzzy dirty riffs.”
THE GOOD: It may all come down to the dirty then and what dirty means to people living under the polluted haze of Metro Manila. A cursory listen tells however that there’s nothing dirty (as in smelly) about “The Gentle Sound of Chaos.”
