IN THIS ISSUE: GROUND CONTROL TO MAJOR TOM
RICO BLANCO REINVENTS OPM; MAYDAY PARADE TAKES CENTERSTAGE
Not one known for playing it safe, singer/prolific songwriter RICO BLANCO deconstructs music as we know it and comes out swinging from left-field with his latest release Galactick Fiestamatik, which we reckon is going to blow your minds. Blanco, who talks about space aliens, electronic music, ati-atihan beats and costumes, claims that this could be his grandest failure, or his most ridiculous success. PULP Editor-in-Chief Joey Dizon thinks that Blanco has gone mad… and at the same time, is a freaking genius.
Meanwhile, pop-punksters MAYDAY PARADE are on the flip-cover, as PULP prepares for the first annual Bazooka Rocks indoor music festival, featuring a massive lineup of international bands, headlined by The Pretty Reckless. Read about what makes this band tick, and find out how the experience has been for them so far.
