SPUTUM is a 5-member Filipino hardcore/punk band formed in Doha, Qatar in early 2019. Most of the members have been friends for a long time, coming from different acts involved in underground DIY shows. Ian was a former bassist for many bands in Doha, the latest was with EIQUF. Jeff was a former guitarist of CENSORSHIT in the Philippines, and right now in SAMAD. Tim has been active in the underground shows here in Doha and has now joined the band as a guitarist. Coi was the former bassist of the MalayBalay based DESAPARACIDOS, before coming to Doha. Last but not the least is Red – former bands in the Philippines includes WHIZ, TSUNAMI and SEVENASIDE. Just like Jeff, he’s also active with the hardcore band SAMAD, but as a guitarist. SPUTUM’s influences are not restricted to hardcore, but Pinoy punk rock and ska bands as well.
The variety in these tracks are pretty amazing as they can go from straight up hardcore punk, to more rhythmic NYHC style vocals, to more contemporary full throttle double kick hardcore metal. The rawness in the recordings is AWESOME.
