Filipino alternative pop/rock band, formed in 1989 after three schoolmates were inspired by a teen film. Originally consisting of Cooky Chua
(vocals), Barbi Crisit (rhythm guitar), and Maricar Florendo
(keyboards), Color It Red eventually added Mike Villegas
(lead guitar), Hank Palenzuela (bass), and Edison Javellano
(drums) to the lineup. Villegas left Color It Red for Rizal Underground, and G.P. Evaristo of Sonic City Zoo became the group's lead guitarist. Palenzuela also split from the band, so Color It Red hired punk bassist Bobip Paraguya of Discant X
. Color It Red's debut album, Hand Painted Sky, was released in 1994 by Alpha Records; it went platinum. In 1995, Color It Red was voted Best New Artist at the Awit Awards.
