This is part two of my interview with Alex “Phatboy” Lim. If you haven’t listened to part one, you can check it out here, A Life in the Business of Music with Alex “Phatboy” Lim.

This episode was a real treat for me. From my perspective, Urbandub came out of nowhere. I went to college in Manila and lived in a dormitory. The dorm organized lots of parties. To me, it looked like they just showed up one day and performed one heckuva rock show. From then on, I was hooked. I watched them almost every time they played in my college.

So to hear Alex talk about how Urbandub got together, how they played their first gig in Manila, and how success followed was a huge treat for me.

If you missed part one of the interview, Alex “Phatboy” Lim used to be the manager of Urbandub. He was there very early on in the band’s journey. To get his perspective of everything that happened was really fun to hear.

Enjoy the podcast!
