Struck Root (sigh)

I was listening to this band todat after a long time and was thinking that their first 3 songs that they promoted were pretty damn good. So I decided to check them out on myspace and see what they are up to and what new music they have, then I read this shit:

StruckRoot is a four piece rock band from Sao Paulo, Brazil. The current lineup comprises Ricardo Dupret - Vocals, Andre Rahaman - Guitars, Rawle Staunton - Bass and Samuel Constantine - Drums.

The band was formed in Guyana (a country known mostly for the Jim Jones tragedy and located north of Brazil) March 2004 by Andre Rahaman. The original members consisted of Andre, Ricardo, drummer Jude Mendonca and bassist Romeo Yong.

This is all these ingrates can say about their homeland Guyana, Jim Jones? That's it?? So sad, they have to be fakers to sell themselves, we're from Brazil, that gives you so much cred doesn't it. Unpatriotic bastards!!

A friend of mine just brought this post to my attention which i would like to comment on since it's very inaccurate and the writer took no time to even find out more about the band by sending them an email which was located under the Bio of the band on

First, StruckRoot at the time that Bio was written was not a Guyanese rock band. When that bio was written, two of its members were from Sao Paulo, Brazil, one was from Angola and one from Guyana, which is me.

As the Bio stated the band was formed in Guyana and from Sao Paulo where it was based. This is important for people in the music business to know where we are located when they need to make contact with the band.

If you ever traveled outside of Guyana a lot you would know people have no idea where Guyana is. In Sao Paulo, people don't know of Guyana, they think it's French Guiana we're speaking about when they ask where I am from. You tell them Jim Jones and everyone remembers, so you tell me what is wrong about that!

Well my friend, StruckRoot wasn't formed to promote Guyana or write songs about Guyana. Our agenda is to promote our musical abilities and hopefully attract a few fans along the way. Instead of attacking bands/people maybe can use your blog to promote them and that will help our country along the way, because if the bands/artists get recognition, our country will be known less for Jonestown.

Good luck with your blog.
