Filipino-American Grindcore band Flattbush release new music video


Bellflower, California-based political punk/grindcore band Flattbush, which comprises of two Pinoy brothers Riko (vocals) and Arman Maniago (bassist), among others, have now premiered their latest music video for “Pork Barrel”, a song that tackles the long standing issue of the Philippine government’s use and repeated misuse of ordinary taxpayer’s money, and especially the blatant siphoning off of relief and donations (cash and in kind) from other countries who lent assistance to the Philippines when supertyphoon “Haiyan” devastated major parts of the country when it hit in late 2013.

Flattbush formed in the early 90s (1992-1993) when the brothers migrated to the United States. The band is known for having an overt political tone in their songs and have been able to release a few albums under koolarrow records, a label run by Faith No More’s bassist Bill Gould. Flattbush is spending studio time on a new album they currently started working on since June of this year. is an underground Asian music news website created for the sole purpose of supporting our own world.
