Splintr Unplugged: Greyhoundz and Slapshock

Splintr Unplugged: Greyhoundz 5

I was able to watch the final part of Splintr Unplugged with Sha. For bands like Greyhoundz and Slapshock, the words “unplugged” and “acoustic” would mean the exact opposite of their music. But in last night’s concert in Teatrino, the unplugged versions of their songs are amazing.

Greyhoundz’s set has a lot of surprises. Enrique de Dios (of Brigada) played the piano for Greyhoundz and the tambourine too. Bogoy Espejo (of Zooom), Ian Tayao (of Queso and Wilabaliw) and Jamir Garcia (of Slapshock) jammed with them as well for the song “Taking U High”. “Taking U High” is from their album “7 Corners Of Your Game” (released in 1999).

Splintr Unplugged: Slapshock 9

Just before Slapshock started to perform, I felt excited when I heard the violin playing. 😀 One of the songs they played that night is “Miles Away” which is their tribute to Allen Cudal (former guitarist of Greyhoundz who died from a car accident). The best part of Slapshock’s set is “Agent Orange”. As the violinist played the intro part and I got goosebumps. It was so beautiful. 🙂 During the last song of Slapshock, Lean Ansing left the stage and then came back with his electric guitar. 😀 It was definitely a great way to end an unplugged set. 😀
