Backtrackin'...... Foodshelter&clothing started out as a side project of Bong and James, founding members of "the bottles" (1988-1993), an avant-pop outfit (they started out as a project of sorts, writing stuff in the vein of seminal artists like Can, Neu, the Doors, the Velvets, Roxy Music, David Bowie, the Who et.al.), then mutated into a power-pop 7 man army specializing in genre-bending opuses, not unlike what they still do in the present Inspired by disparate musical genres, only showcased their eclectic influences. From early 80s synthpop (e.g. Heaven 17, Human League, blancmange, Yazoo) to late 80s Manc-Rock (e.g. Happy Mondays, Stone Roses, Inspiral Carpets) to 90s dance music (and all its ever-increasing sub-genres), not to mention their love of heavy metal (they recently did a live tribute to Napalm Death!) and old skool punk and hardcore, as well as traditional jazz and r & b, hip-hop, and even film scores. And no, they cant be tagged as music elitists, coz these blokes also clink their glasses to Kylie Minogue and watch all the pop videos they can handle on TV. After all they were once chosen as one of the bands handpicked on MTV Asias "OUT-OF-THE-BOX"segment(1997). They also had their share of the media with tracks played over NU107, plus countless of fanzine articles, as well as the occasional write up on the national dailies. And oh yeh, you might be wondering how they got their name, well it was inspired by the Alison Anders movie, "gas, food, and lodging". They set up their own label, DIY TAPES LTD. in 1993 (which they now renamed to Hogtied Records then eventually became StickySweetSounds). And to date they have released 8 albums (some of 'em can still be bought via mail order), including the soundtrack of the Alamat comicbook "Baylans" (2000) which was commissioned by its author (jason banico).Not counting their various compilations,notably "multiplestabwounds" which featured a revamped hip-hop(!?) version of The Storm (orig.from their album Cut n Paste). In 2004, they released their first e.p. "Cracked" (Triad Records). Also on the menu, were albums from their various side projects (e.g. fulltimebigot, Hidden Agenda RP, Half & Half, Trotsky & the Nosebleeds, Buddha Christ). Recently, they strutted their production skills, doing a remix project with Manila-based metal band Religious Nightmare. FYI, they are big fans of such studio icons like Brian Eno, Flood, and more notably Dan "the Automator" Nakamura, whom they consider as a kindred spirit in his use of lo-fi soundscapes (hey, these guys still use their trusty Tascam 4 track cassette studio!).And in their current incarnation as a duo (isnt it refreshing to see a non-guitar slinging band in Pinoy Rock?), they're open to do full-length gigs (any takers out there?), and perhaps songwriting duties for interested artists (c'mon Im sure some of 'em could use a little indie cred). To paraphrase what rapper Ice T said: "I told 'ya, you
should've killed ('em )last year...
