Chicosci is a 5 piece rock band based in Manila. The band is composed of vocalist Miguel Chavez, bassist Carlos Calderon, drummer Jose Salvador, and guitarists Sonny Baquisal and Mong Alcaraz. They were first named Chico Science in homage to the Brazilian musician of that name. They later shortened this to Chicosci in order to avoid confusion with the Brazilian artist. Chicosci's biggest mainstream hit is "Paris" from their sophomore effort "Method of Breathing".
