What do we make of Bamboo’s version of the Buklod’s original “Tatsulok”?:
1. Proof of the progressive mass movement’s growing influence. The song, after all, contains some of the Left’s marxist readings of today’s Philippine situation. It almost has a revolutionary message in it, with lines like “Hangga’t may tatsulok, at sila ang nasa tuktok / hindi matatapos itong gulo…”
2. Uso uli ang pagiging aktibista…
3. Bamboo is merely following on the local musical trend started with such trailblazing acts as MYMP and Sponge Cola.
4. The song is a musical treasure of universal value, like Abba’s “Dancing Queen” and Dina Bonnevie’s “Bakit Ba Ganyan”.
5. Running out of creative juices, Bamboo is now turning to revivals to revive his band’s flagging popularity, overtaken as it is by Hale, Cueshe and Willie Revillame.
