The band uses the basic rock lineup of guitar, drums, and bass. As noted earlier, the musicianship is a bit rudimentary, but charmingly so, reminiscent of such 1960s American garage bands as the 13th Floor Elevators and the Kingsmen. There is also a touch of the punk band the Sex Pistols in the Siakol's sound. The band displays a commendable degree of creativeness and diversity.
In the summer of '94 best friends Noel Palomo and Wowie Flores had this thought "Masyado nang magulo ang Mundo, ano kaya ang magagawa natin para makatulong?" a very good question indeed considering the fact that none of them was rich, and the only thing they had is an old guitar and songs that no one has ever heard but them. So they decided to form a group that would help awaken the minds of troubled youth in their hometown. So they formed an alliance with Athony Cervantes whom is considered as a guitar extra ordinaire and James Rodriguez a well renowned drummer. They called themselves "SIAKOL", siakol pertaining to a free, happy and sometimes naughty state of mind.
