Wahaha! I can't believe it! At 25, I wrote my first fan mail!
Check it out!
Does anyone else remember The Lizards' Convention? Remember that Elvis Presley cover, "Wooden Heart"? I'm sure you remember the song, if not the band. It was all over the airwaves towards the end of 1995, if I remember correctly. I was in my "metal" phase back then (note: Filipino pronunciation please! As in "hip-hop versus metal" or "Punks Not Dead"), so my cassette of The Lizards' Convention's album was a guilty pleasure.
Anyway, I'm not in a mood to write, so pardon the composition.
Back to the story: Even after more than 10 years, I still have not forgotten how much I enjoyed the album. I always sing and play on the guitar the first verse of II-I, my favorite song on that album. (I just pluck the 1st three strings of the D chord and then move it up two frets).
I've always wondered what happened to them, since in they were a one-hit wonder. With the power of the Internet, I was able to find that they were supposed to release a follow up album but due to difficulties, it was never released. I'm also sad to report that the band is no longer together, but here's hoping that they get back for a reunion album!
I was desperate to complete the song, but the chords weren't available on any website, so I emailed Adrian Loo...
Here's a link to their Geocities website:
I hope I get a reply!
