Up Dharma Down wins plum awards during NU107Rock Awards’09

17 11 2009

Vocalist of the Year(Armi Millare),Album of The Year(Bipolar) and Artist of The Year…much to the consternation of those who don’t “get” Up Dharma Down and are still stuck to the old sound of Pinoy Rock wherein it has to be typical or “rakrakan” template prompting one seemingly disappointed old hack to report “low key” band wins big at the rock awards and went on to enumerate others without much focus nor fanfare for the big winner.

Sorry to disappoint you but if you give it an open mind you will realize that Bipolar and future albums that break away from the mold help us move into the modern rock world where boundaries are gone and the rock stereotype has been shattered.

The majority though, seems to think it’s a well deserved win so i am a happy camper. Thank you to those who have moved on, you forward thinking music people who voted for the future, the fans and supporters, to the judges who stuck to their guns in recognizing change , embracing and appreciating it. Also to NU107 for having the guts to turn it around and make the Rock Awards, still, the only bonafide award giving body for excellence in music.
