  Bad Days For Mary

Saturday, January 19, 2008


















Back in high school.. some 12 (gee!) years ago.. i used to watch them play. its been years since i last googled to find them and only ended up with one link that only contains a photo copy of their album's sleeve "Let's talk of more pleasant things".

Yesterday, Puquita, one of my oldest friends (back in freedom pad 'zine days) told me that she saw them on TV last Monday. if it were 1997, i would have hated them and used the ever popular term (back then) "sell out" for showing up on tv. but now.. woah! i nearly almost jumpped on my seat while chatting online with her! but since i was at work that day (or night, erm), i was reserved to keep my emotions inside.

below is the few lines of our short talk:

is there a come back?!

- i'm not sure.

last couple of times i saw camille, (their cute vocalist - hehe, i always loved how she wears her sexy glasses) way after bad days were in hiatus, was in a mall with her bf and we bought the same chocolate drink. then i saw her again few years after with her daughter who was wearing a cute pink dress and just got off a bus. last time i heard she was in canada.

how was irvin?

- the drummer on tv was hiding behind his hair. so not sure if it was still him.

well he always liked thurston moore. he looked bit like him too. we had the same birthday and i remembered they greeted me on the NU during the live feed of their gig at 70's bistro. it was our birthday then.

- yeah i remember! and ha! sonic youth. i miss the good old days... it was only ixan who was mostly shot by the cam.

yeah, remember the real name of ixan? (ops i wont give that out here)

- haha! cool i forgot about that! btw, mad was still there. he looked the same.

with the hair?

- yes, i think so.

oh, i remember i had a crush on him! he's a great writer. and how about bj? was he there too? and george?

- im not sure too. but i remember bj still owed us money for the zines he sold on his shop.

yeah, thats ok. a round of san mig light will do. ha!

- better yet, remembered he promised us a copy of their album?

if they still remember us. do you still have copies of Rn'R?

- not sure, maybe.

i lost mine after the renovation of the house. but i managed to save the zines. i still have all of wendy says! haha and wendi's wring.. well, all, that they gave to us for free that is. hehe..

- whats that zine again about beer mug? she was the one who gave us Dredd tickets right?

yep, MUG the zine of marge. i still have them too. and that issue of my interview at wendy says, i got it from that ska zine writer from sampaloc, who bought freedom pad. actually, we just swapped issues.

(non-related chat not included above)

bad days for mary.. nakaka-miss.. comeback or not, i just wish i have a copy of their album..
