Microdisney - Singles & B Sides

Microdisney, I first heard on WXB 102.7 FM, the sorely missed radio station here in the Manila. I think it was 1984 or 1985 when I heard Harmony Time, and they didn’t play it again (though Birthday Girl received a considerable airplay, since it’s actually the A-side and Harmony Time is the B-Side). But the song stuck in my head like a splinter and I was left hanging all this time.

Recently, I asked my friend and partner in crime, the Terrorizer, if he can find me that song. And he actually did. He got it from some long dead blog but the links are still ok. After 20 plus years of searching, I finally get to listen to that song again.

Yeah I know, I’m supposed to be punk & hardcore and stuff like that. But I got to admit, I also listen to stuff from Echo & the Bunnymen, Pale Fountains, the Lucy Show and the like. I listen almost about all types of music NOT usually played on the radio (I stopped listening to the radio in 1998 and never looked back).

Anyways, I just want to share to you all the things in my playlist. I hope you dig them as much as I do. Enjoy!

I bought "The Clock Comes Down The Stairs" years back on cassette from a sale bin because of the single "Birthday Girl". Commercial radio didn't touch it though. Only Student radio played it in my city. In my town they also played stuff like Dead Kennedys, Violent Femmes, Echo and The Bunnymen, Naked Raygun, flying nun records stuff etc.... It pretty much set up my tastes for life.

Me too, WXB single-handedly influenced my musical taste afterall they were the station that dared to be different. Playing Minor Threat alongside Del Fuegos, from Velvet Underground to Under Two Flags. After they're demise in the mid-80s, 2 rock stations rose from the ashes, the other one bit the bust in the 90s while the other one soldiered on. But that "one" somewhat copied commercial radio format as well, and the DJ's became very talkative on air and they don't even talk about music, just some random s#@t. So I said, screw that, I'm not gonna listen to that shit anymore. Haven't listen to the radio ever since. How I envy you that you have college/student radio in your town.

More power Chris!
