From Sheila and the Insect's Website:
"Jerros, who’s in law school, said he couldn’t do the scheduled August 22 weekend, that being the scheduled midterms. The rest of us though would be available. Jai suggested that we consider getting a session drummer just for that gig. I wasn’t too keen on the idea but I left it to the group to decide. Everybody calls the shots in this group. Not exactly a democracy though. More like equally strong-willed tyrants running countries sharing borders. Imagine the cold war were the nuclear deterrent kept the fragile peace. Okay, I exaggerate. But, like I said before, this is a band of band leaders.WOW. THAT IS BIG. Someone should video that event gig!!! It would be a "sneak preview" of The Line Divides and SATI performing together. :D Sucks it has to be in Manila though. :(
Sometimes I wonder if that’s a good thing.
We decided to get Edrik of The Line Divides and jammed last week. I will say one thing; he’s one really talented drummer. We started the session with Quick to Panic and finished the song feeling like we’d been playing it for years. That’s how good he is. Which, in a nutshell, is reflective of the level of talent of the new bands here in Cebu. The Line Divides in particular."
So Sheila and the Insects is back! :)
