I can’t stress this enough. I’ve said this a few times in the podcast already, but it is worth repeating. My few years playing music with Rescue A Hero really helped me meet many interesting people. This is especially true for many of my guests. It turns out that people who are involved in music do interesting things.

One of my discoveries when I started playing music was the existence of productions. Productions was the term used for groups organizing gigs around the city. In fact, one of our first gigs as a band was for Harakiri Mosh. It was dark, loud, alcohol fueled, and a lot of fun.

One of the ladies who selflessly organized the fabled production of Harakiri Mosh is Shak Mancao. Everyone called her Ate Shak. She really was like an older sister watching over her rock and roll siblings. Harakiri Mosh was responsible for helping keep the music scene alive. Tirelessly working through the years to provide fun gigs for many of the local bands.

Although Harakiri Mosh hasn’t closed their doors, Ate Shak is organizing less gigs, but playing much more in the band Tiger Pussy. They have managed to garner a hardcore following through their three albums, their energetic shows, and their honest music.

In this episode, we talk about the past, present and future of Harakiri Mosh, how Ate Shak started playing bass for Tiger Pussy, and a look at the Cebu music scene in years past.
