Radioactive Sago Project – The Radioactive Sago Project

Radioactive Sago Project are a nine-member jazz fusion rock band with spoken word vocals provided by Lourd De Veyra.

Radioactive Sago Project are unique for their caustic and often tongue-in-cheek lyrics recited against a backdrop of a vibrant brass section. RSP’s funk, psychedelic, and big band influences are apparent in all their albums.

RSP are also well-known as a musical project fronted by Lourd De Veyra, a poet, activist, award-winning writer, composer, DJ, and TV personality.

Radioactive Sago Project have released four studio albums and continue to perform live.

In 2000, the band released its first single, “Gusto Ko Ng Baboy”, about a young man’s fascination with pigs since his childhood. As the song progresses, it becomes a political tirade against corruption.
