the studio of Lui Bacaltos and the hounds in Heaven
15 August 2010
Art by Mark Salvatus Lettering by Norman Wilwayco
VIGO counts Tom Waits and Ben Folds and Sylvia La Torre among their influences. And somewhere in the overlap of these unlikely inspirations, kundiman sentiment and radio pop melodrama meet jazz-noir smoke and heartbroken avant-pop to become something else both strange and familiar and old-fashioned and futuristic and not a little lovely. Singer-songwriter and pianist Khavn De La Cruz heads this eclectic band of outsiders with Franz Magat on bass, Paolo Manuel on drums, Kakoy Legaspi on guitar, soundscaper Caliph and vocalist Tao Aves. "BANG!", their first EP, which features the songs "Shoot The Pianist", "The Last Commandment" , and "Where Are You, My River?" is now available for free download at:
Vigo's debut album, "Kundiman Apocalypse", will be launched in October 2010.

". . . and it may be that certain forms of play are an escape hatch for us from technology, a therapeutic hope, a little more methexis mixed with our mimesis, that is, participation as well as imitation. If we, all of us, had movie cameras and tape recorders and silkscreen, if we designed our own furniture, shaped our glassware, wove our own tapestries, set our own type, we might knit up the raveled sleeve of self. The rush of (a)esthetic theories upon us while we lie numb under the machines has divided us from our experience, has stylized our responses. We do not understand, but attitudinize. . . . Craftsmanship, the self-shaping of privacy, the health-giving labor, could be our way out . . ." - John Leonard
