RP BAND (Run for your love / When angels march across the sky)
« on: September 22, 2008, 06:00:37 PM »
Any of you guys remember this local band called RP BAND?  They had an Indie release back in the 80's with the songs Run For Your Love and When Angels March Across The Sky.
I have stated that there are more bad sounding suhrs then there are good ones.

Run for you love...I'll be looking for you ( at you? )....Run For your love...when you make a move...Run for your love....? Is that it? course I remember that.

Late 80's 'to. A lot of people even thought that it was Ric Segretto while in exile in the US, who sang this song with the band. They are a US-based filipino band I heard at that time.  :mrgreen: But I think Segretto was the brother of the vocalist if I'm not mistaken.

Goff Macaraeg (vocals), Bob Aves (Guitars) and Louie Ocampo (Keyboards) are the core members of this "supergroup", came around in late 80s and perhaps most of us could remember the band via the album "Street Legal" that includes the notable composition of Louie Ocampo entitled "While Angels March"...and by the way i still have this "Run" on my player and still enjoying it after almost 20yrs of listening :P

They really sounded foreign then, galing ng recording at ng song. Early NU 107 days eto ! At a time when The Dawn & Identity Crisis were the only local rock bands who have recorded respectable quality recordings. They were one of the pioneers! RP is a big favorite of mine together with then upcoming local band as welll, FRONTIER of the Take My Hand fame. :mrgreen:

RJ UR 105.9 FM regularly play the songs of  RP Band.  The station even guested Geoff Macaraig during the Pinoy Rock Show early this year .... Great Band..... Great Album

Is it a whole album or just 2 tracks? I only heard Run and When Angels..........

Back then recording was reel based, cut to cut editing. The talents of the engineers really surfaced.

Hanep naman! Cool Infos ! All the while I thought they recorded this in the US, they even recorded at Tracks ? Probably because of the quality of the recording then na parang stateside talaga, kaya that news somehow medyo kumalat nuon.

Hmmm...pero question lang, during this time, if I'm not mistaken Ric Segretto was already in the States right ? How did he record this?

If you can upload it via a torrent site for us to grab it would be very much appreciated.

Reyban, thanks for the picture. Those were the days!

Strange Storms. I like that better than Street Legal. If I remember right, it only came out on cassette. I bought that one pero di ko na mahanap ang copy ko. One thing sure, I didn't throw it away. All day I've been thinking kung saan ko tinago yung tape when I moved in to my own place two years ago.

I would be jumping up and high if that MP3 copy can be made available. :)

In return, for those who have the equipment to do a needle drop of Street Legal - my LP is available.  :-D

@raizen26,

Got 'em all!!! I am playing the first track, Strange Storms. Now I remember why I liked this album so much.  Heavy riffs, melodic and the guitar squeals. And do I hear some tapping and pinch harmonics?

Really hope something can be done to have both albums re-released on CDs.

What's the torrent tracker of choice, guys?

Thanks again raizen!!!
