I got to meet Saab Magalona-Bacarro and Jim Bacarro during No Filter. Saab is part of our cast and while we always knew of each other, she has lent her celebrityhood to further the cause of HIV Awareness (amongst other important causes), and we know a lot of common friends we never really got to become friends. During the process of rehearsals and the shows, I’ve come to know Saab and Jim and I love ’em and respect them very much and we all went to watch their gig at Saguijo for their band Cheats.
I loved it. I enjoyed the six or seven songs they sang that night and I even hurt myself somehow from all the head-banging and foot stomping as I was rocking out to their music.
And now, their eponymous album Cheats is available on iTunes and I just so love it. When I saw the announcement over at Twitter, I immediately bought a copy from iTunes and began listening to it and loaded it up to my iPad and iPod so it’s with me when I travel.
There are no fillers here and I am very partial to the tracks Sleepist and Accidents.
