People liked it very well and only a year after they came out with their first single; Herfst 2057 (Autumn 2057). There were three numbers on it and one of them was 'Eens' with the Dutch rappers Spacekees and Terilekst. In 2003, Castro came with his debute record Shockgolf (Shockwave) Castro doesn't rap in the dialect from Ghent but more in Flemish, which is better to understand for the Dutch audience from The Netherlands, who don't like 't Hof van Commerce, another Flemisch hip hop band (because they simply can't understand their dialect). 3) An Scottish alternative rock band from Glasgow: If you read below, you can study a detail biogrophy of the Glasgow rock band that once supported The Dead 60s. I think their mum wrote it.
The Castro better represented on last.fm charts is, according to last.fm user Lofnar, "een rapper, geen groep". He rose to prominence on JME's Derkhead mixtape with a track produced by Lava. It's really bloody good. Castro is a 5-piece alternative rock band from Glasgow, Scotland. The band began performing around 2003, with a different line-up, but in the last year and a half, several changes to the line-up, including new bass player John Selfridge, drummer Graham Williamson, and new guitarist Alan Williamson have helped bring the band a traditional rock n roll swagger, and an invincible stage presence.
The band started off playing local pubs such as Harleys rock bar in Hamilton and Bar Starka in Motherwell. Since then, the band have played most of Scotlands best live music venue including The Barfly, The Renfrew Ferry, Nice n Sleazys, Stereo, The Cathouse Rock Club and King Tuts(at which the bands musical idols Oasis were also discovered). The band were recently supported in a local gig by a band in the top ten of the beat 106 competition Miller Unsigned. The gig was a massive success and like most of the bands local and regional gigs, it was a sell-out due to the band accumulating a healthy and loyal fanbase in the Glasgow region. To further add to their profile, the band even booked a date to play in Scotlands Barlinnie Prison. The performance went down such a storm that even the inmates asked for the band to return, which they did, a while later.
Castro recently supported popular British bands The Dead 60s, The Warlocks and The Kooks in yet more sell-out shows at King Tuts. The Dead 60s are now touring with the colossal heavyweight alternative chart rock band The Stereophonics. The band are also in the Glasgow final of the East-meets-West competition, which will be held in the Barrowlands (a venue played regularly by the likes of Oasis, foo fighters, etc;). Previous heats have gone well for the band, in which they have played other bands completely off the stage, and for which they have sold well over one hundred tickets, despite date clashes with popular events such as the Scottish League Cup Final. Graham Williamson and John Selfridge are both studying music technology at university, and both have received awards in music technology from their schooldays and since. Liam-Gallagher-esque Vocalist Colin Richardson and guitarist John Taylor have been writing together since their childhood and have become a brothers-in-arms on stage and in the studio.
Alan Williamson joined the band recently as guitarist/backing-vocalist and his talent has been recognised by fans and band members alike. The success of the bands independently released 4-track debut EP Cheap Thrills, recorded at Washoose studios in Glasgow (which was also given a positive review by Scottish newspaper The Daily Record) was unprecedented with the bands incredible, energetic and highly entertaining live performances reinforcing the recording, which completely sold out, and forced the band to run off another batch, such has been the interest in the band, including interest from record labels such as Sony. The bands original brand of post-Britpop style alternative rock has drawn influence from artists such as Oasis, Jet, The Foo Fighters, The Music, led zeppelin and The Beatles. They have even been compared to AC/DC, and appeal to a wide range of concert goers, with fans ranging from young teenagers to people in their 40s, and with labels keeping tabs on the bands activities, it is only a matter of time before the best band in Scotland start being called the best new band in Britain. The band are expected to embark upon UK and US tours during late 2006, and during the summer of 2007. 4) A funk, alternative, rock band from Manila, Philippines: Castro is a passage for Bogs, Momar, John, Ja, tagging Kyle and Allan along their way. The adventure started with a few other musicians in the past they have created bonds with putting words into music and turning music into a journey.
Belonging to a band popularly known as CAPO, the group has now determined to venture into Castro leaning towards a more unified direction. Having numerous sporadic exposure over the past five years in the music industry—including broadcasts through live TV performances on local networks, radio shows, concerts, and productions—Castro now endeavors presence in the local music scene and hopes to reach out to a wider audience with the help of Artistree Global Entertainment Management Co. Bogs (vocals) with his gift of songwriting have gained admiration and respect from the band followers with songs enjoying radio airplay such as Lakad Lang, and Patay Sindi. Rich with songs that can already make a lifetime’s worth of LPs, he leads the band towards an uncompromising commitment to inspire their listeners. John (lead guitar) and Ja (rhythm guitar), along with Momar (bass), having been a part of the former band, brought with them an unyielding enthusiasm for Castro’s music. With a mighty bond of music and influences that hold them together, they became an integral part of the group sharing a wealth of experience in composition and arrangement. Kyle (percussion) and Allan (keyboards) were invited to join the group first quarter of 2010. With the band members’ goal to bring forward excellence in each crafts, no rocks were left unturned to find the two new additions to group.
Castro now has brought a constant challenge to better musicians and inspires each other to grow and evolve. Castro’s music is inspired by timeless classics and their songs look into social responsibility, spiritual consciousness, and a sonic exploration on everyone’s journey to live and love. 5) Castro is a family trio from Texas: Castro consists of siblings Jason Castro, Michael Castro, and Jackie Castro.
