Crisostomo Guevarra - frontman
Mark Anthony "Clapton " Lopez - axeman.

Why this name?
We were actually toying with a couple of names at that time. "Gin
n Tonik" was thrown at the mix (we found out later that there is an actual band called "Gin n Tonik"
from Europe or somewhere). "Soapdish" sounded good but too bland and has no "arrive" or "dating".
Then I happen to read something in a message board of one of my favorite sites. And there it was...
"Sodapop Suicide". I immediately "swiped" the name and here we are.

Sodapop alone was a good name by itself, but adding suicide to it added that "cutting edge". I felt
Sodapop needed to sharpen its soft edges...just because we're not a boy band...or a "show band". I
don't wanna be branded as a "pop" band either. A "grittier" pop band is what Sodapop Suicide is all
about. Pop with all the raw power of rock and danger!!! Yes..."dangerous pop"!!!
Band History:
The story is, there's really no story but I'll tell you one anyway: There's this
frustrated artists/painter who somehow someway found his foot at Ted Reyes's doorstep. And along
the way he found this guitarist in a diner called "Rock Cafe" in Glenn Rock, New Jersey. The rest is
history. Now if we could only quit our day jobs...
Anything else...? Describe your music, like what style do you consider your music, etc...

Sodapop Suicide: It's really pop based. I'm not ashamed to say it, but that's all it is. It's just based
on a "pop" melody but everything else isn't pop. We often (Ted usually) try to incorporate a lot of
different sounds to our music. It's electronic/dance/rock one song and then one song ends up
sounding pop/punk/hard rock. To compare it to current artists, I would say it would be like Moby, Beck
and Ely Buendia when he was doing "Wanted Bedspacer" on Valium and Benadryl...hehe.

There's also a lot of influences coming from other art forms including comics, graffiti, kung fu and Asian
cinema. Think Stephen Chow, Shaolin Soccer, David Mack's Kabuki, Simon Bisley's LOBO, David Choe's
slow jams, Giant Robot magazine, Versus the movie, Tan Tan-Tarantino Kill Bill, I could go on and on... What type of music do you guys listen to? And what are some of the bands out there do
you listen to?

Sodapop Suicide: I listen to everything. But I listen to Ted Reyes...and of course Bleud. Watch out for
the Kwagos...I think instead of bands, I would list favorite songs here:

1. Mr. Brownstone - GnR
2. Wanted Bedspacer - Ely Buendia
3. Taste of Lime - Wolfgang
4. Rainy Days - Bleud
5. E Ano Ngayon - The Kwagos
6. Stranded - Rivermaya
7. Natin 99 Album - Eheads
8. No Surprises - Radiohead
9. Drown - Smashing Pumpkins
10. Absorning Man - Parokya Ni Edgar
11. Aluminum - Girl In Park
