Point Click Kill


The history of Point Click Kill is probably as mixed and mangled as the style of their music is. Hailing from the great city of Iloilo, this quartet saw its beginnings burst out of musical genres that range from and include reggae, ska, rapcore, Latin and Industrial flavors. It's difficult to imagine but one dose of their music and one will start to understand how this mixing is even possible. Point Click Kill has made it easier for their audience to absorb their music by describing it simply as Raga-Core Read more on Last.fm
The history of Point Click Kill is probably as mixed and mangled as the style of their music is. Hailing from the great city of Iloilo, this quartet saw its beginnings burst out of musical genres that range from and include reggae, ska, rapcore, Latin and Industrial flavors. It's difficult to imagine but one dose of their music and one will start to understand how this mixing is even possible. Point Click Kill has made it easier for their audience to absorb their music by describing it simply as Raga-Core, a combination of reggae (which is particularly a dominant genre There they are from) and Hardcore "sometimes-bordering-on-Death" Metal. This combination spiced with Jazz flavors and angry lyrics that single out the taboo issues of today's country, PCK delivers their music with clenched fists. The band formed after Dem Catacutan and Duhwain Catacutan (brothers) landed in Iloilo after some serious bumming in Dumaguete.

They collaborated with Darwin Ardales before actually absorbing him into the group as their lead guitarist. It was at this point that Dem (who was the lead guitarist at the time) took the duties as the bassist of the band. In 2002, the band composed a couple of songs and joined a competition although they were still nameless at this point. Their first drummer quit the band a few months after.

Their only other choice was to pull in the youngest of the Catacutan clan, Nino, who at first was hesitant but willing. Trudging forward with original songs in their arsenal, PCK showed just how different they really were from the rest. After sending out a demo, it caught the attention of Cebu's Lighter Records. The demo they had sent was recorded in their living room. Rumor has it that in the demo, one can hear a tricycle passing by or chickens crowing in the background.

At this time, Urbandub was to play Iloilo for the 2nd time. Impressed and equally shocked, Dub specifically requested Point Click Kill to front for them in Iloilo. Since then, the band has recorded and released a full-length, self-titled album under Lighter Records. It includes their hit singles "Ariba" and "Ska Linti", both tracks which have gained notorious attention over the NU107 airwaves. The band had gained so much attention, in fact, that they had been invited to tour around Manila and to play at the prestigious Pulp Summer Slam 2006, an annual concert that receives an audience of at least 30,000 rock-heads and metal-freaks (exactly the kind of people that PCK loves to play for). Today, the band is taking things in stride, by selling CDs the independent way through gigs and specialty shops and organizing home court gigs that help them spread their music as well as the music of bands that play at their gigs for sadly there are no radio stations in Iloilo that will play their unsafe tunes (except for the amateur and ballsy CRES 104.1).

More plans include nationwide distribution of their CD, video shoots and interviews as well as various tours with bands from Manila and with their label mates Urbandub, Faspitch, Still and The Ambassadors.
