There will also be a special tribute to the music of departed '70s SuperBand member, Snaffu
Rigor, of Cinderella ('Bato sa Buhangin,' 'Boyfriend Kong Baduy') and Metro Pop fame ('Bulag, Pipi at Bingi').
The album's exceptional picks are served well by Martin's adjusted showmanship in these numbers: Ernani Cuenco and Snaffu
Rigor's Bato sa Buhangin, Nonong Pedero's Buhay ng Buhay Ko, Mike Velarde and Dominador Santiago's Ikaw, Levi Celerio and Resty Umali's Saan Ka Man Naroroon and the midtempo tweaking of Canseco's Kapantay ay Langit.
The dastardly deed has been done, but can we learn any lessons from this latest show biz snaffu
? A lot: As MTRCB chair Eugenio "Toto" Villareal has so helpfully summarized it, the problem partly stems from the fact that "Vice" comes from the world of gay "sing-along bar" comedy, where flaming comics specialize in what its original American practitioner, Don Rickles, describes as the Comedy of Insult.
