DeathToPuberty covers the classic 80s anthem of angsty proto-emo teens, Seona Dancing’s More To Lose
I didn’t realize that Sannee of Crapsalad Videos recorded this song, I only realized it when Darwin of Richard Collier posted this video on my Facebook wall. I remember first hearing this song more than 6 years ago. That was before DeathToPuberty and my band at the time was just recovering from a long hiatus, and somehow playing it last January 21 is a reaffirmation for me to continue playing and writing songs with or without a band.

What’s interesting with my recent visit to San Pablo’s Lakefest is that apart from watching great bands, meeting and talking with really cool people I also got the chance to do an impromptu performance as DeathToPuberty. Here is a footage of my take on Bright Eyes’ At the Bottom of Everything. Big thanks to Jeff who also publishes Konspirazine and manages a really extensive blog called The Real Strength (I take that the title was inspired by Biofeedback’s song on the album Hardtimes ) that catalogs the Philippine underground music scene. Anyways hope you’ll like the song. You can also read more about it on The Space in Between
Here’s a video taken by my friend and PayItForward cohort Cedric Buenviaje this was shot during my performance during Earth Decay 2010
The void left behind by the indefinite hiatus of PayItForward got me to explore several music projects. Among them is the anarcho/electronica collective callled Never Forget The Cause. Here is a skate video featuring the music of Never Forget The Cause & DeathToPuberty. Filmed and edited by my nephew Gato Borrero.
