In this episode, Channa Channa Channa talks to Fugu Musk, the alternative rock band from Manila. Channa discovered Fugu Musk when they performed last April at Social House Makati with Fragments.
From its beginnings in 2010 through the release of its first EP (Stay Awake) in 2017, the band went through several lineup changes with Raf de los Reyes as the only consistent member. In 2018, Raf met guitarist Raph Rivera, and they began playing shows and writing songs together, becoming fast friends through their shared love of punk and grunge music. In 2022, the pair brought in drummer and longtime friend Ian Estanislao, and have been releasing music at a breakneck pace since then.
Seeking to be a beam of light in a genre that takes itself too seriously, Fugu Musk writes music that contemplates themes of loneliness and transience, with a loud and screaming hard rock punch. Fugu Musk is characterized by loud, fuzzy guitars, hard-hitting and boomy drums, thunderous, pumping bass, and snarky, energetic vocals.
