When I did the virtual interview more than five years ago, a band member in the form of a doll entertained me. Literally, a doll. The doll responds to the name Lugosi, drummer and lyricist. The rest of the members: Manx Minuet (guitars and lead vocals), Lobo (rhythm guitars), and Uno (bass and vocals). Their music’s core is based on thought-provoking poetry as sampled here in an excerpt of the Last Supper lyrics:

Tanging hiling ng isang ina
Ihain ang sarili nya.
(Mapalad ang tinatawag sa kanyang piging.)
Mula ulo hanggang paa, tikman ang pag-ibig niya.

Gawin mo ito, bilang pag-alala sa akin.

Ngayong gabi ipagbunyi natin
Busog kang mahihimbing.
Ihanda na ang mga plato’t pinggan,
Ang mga baso, huwag kalilimutan.

Maghugas ng kamay, nand’yan lang ang tabo
Heto ako, iyong bimpo, gamitin mo.
Kay daming ulam… o, dahan-dahan
‘Wag kang mag-alala, ‘di ka mauubusan.

The band members

The original band members

Mistula may subsist online, but there is a tribute band that plays for them if we, human beings, choose to see something live. The band members’ influences include Mutiny, Dahong Palay, Backdraft and countless of nameless bands that helped in the resurgence of Pinoy rock in the new millenium.

Soon enough, though, Mistula just may cross barriers of self-expression (as no one knows what the future holds), but before that happens, let me introduce what they are and their kind of Filipino music here to you.

The Last Supper – mistula

Marami pang makabagong alternatibong musika ang mga Pilipino. Ang pagtangkilik ng sariling atin ay likas sa ating pagkatao. This is why we ought to respect any genre of music that our fellowmen has because by appreciating their art we are aprreciating our national consciousness as well.
