Eraserheads will reunite very soon!

One night only: The Eraserheads reunion!
CHANNEL SURFING By Althea Lauren Ricardo
Monday, July 14, 2008
PhilStar

There was an online buzz about one of the biggest, if not the biggest, rock bands in the 1990s that alternately made me teary-eyed and caused my heart to double its beat in anticipation. I didn’t know how true it was, but, as one of the bloggers who wrote about it said, just thinking about it gave me goose bumps. My initial reaction was, “Yeah right. Keep dreaming.” After all, I know that the band in question parted bitterly—so much so that one of them didn’t even check up on his bandmate when the latter had a heart attack. But I couldn’t ignore the fact that some of the bloggers cited were sort of insiders in the music industry too.

Over the weekend, the buzz was finally confirmed, thanks to one of The Philippine STAR entertainment editor and writer Ricky Lo’s moles: the Eraserheads are going to reunite for a one night only show on August 30, 2008! The venue is supposed to be the Cultural Center of the Philippines open grounds. The other details are still sketchy, but from what I gathered during my own online sleuthing—made easy because the blog posts were careful to cite references—a corporate sponsor convinced the foursome to perform for a big event that’s supposedly free to some 35,000 expected fans.

A Blogger blog of a hardcore fan wrote an entry about his “Eraserheads Reunion Conspiracy Theory,” citing several clues, from the three E-heads’ (Raimund Marasigan, Marcus Adoro, and Buddy Zabala) visiting the University of the Philippines again with Jessica Soho to Ely Buendia’s concert in Sydney, Australia as himself, not as Pupil, where he sang Eraserheads songs like “Pare Ko,” “Maling Akala,” “Alapaap.”

One Multiply blog gave hint of the reunion on July 7, citing his “mole” as somebody who worked for the sponsoring company. According to his source, “The estranged members have been wooed since early this year and they only relented when they were offered a staggering amount of P??, 000,000.00.” The blogger also said she’s already seen the teaser posters that are going to be released soon.

Another Multiply blog posted a blind item on July 9, posting an image of a black Converse Chuck Taylor shoe as a clue. On several other succeeding updates, more clues were posted, with the last being a picture of David Lynch. In the last post, he also stressed that money was not the deciding factor.

Finally, another blog posted what seems like a teaser poster: an inverted letter E, with the numbers 83008.

Some other unconfirmed bits and pieces I picked up: tickets would be free; ticket would be on sale soon; tickets would be available for download; and the corporate sponsor has a ton of money to spend on this project (apparently, they don’t do tri-media advertising and yet lots of people buy their product).

That’s all I know, so far, but you can bet I’d be waiting to snap up some tickets as soon as they’re available—free or not. I grew up in the 1990s. In fact, I partially decided to transfer to UP because of their song “Kalayaan.” I’m not a hardcore fan—and this I know because I’ve known some—and I’ve never owned Chuck Taylors, but I do have several E-heads stories, one involving making a pretend class project, intercepting them at their That’s Entertainment guesting at Broadway Centrum, and inventing a really fun on-the-spot interview at the parking lot. There are more, but this one’s the best, my own 1990s’ “Minsan sa may…”

and ang magsponsor daw ng reunion concert na hindi sinabi ng author ng article sa taas ay ang Marlboro. Ayaw sabihin kasi sinesekreto???

according to rumors, each member was or will be paid P10,000,000 pero exaggerated lang daw yung figures na yun. Nasa P2,000,000 lang daw pero kahit 2 or 10 million pa yun, malaki pa rin yun.

Ang maganda dito sa reunion, FREE ang tickets, pero pakiramdaman muna kung saang website pede idownload yung tickets. Hopefully kakayanin ng website na yun yung possible bandwidth ng mga maguunahan magdownload. And there would be strict rules and guidelines daw para makakuha ng free ticket like valid id kasi fir 18 y/o above lang yun.

This was sent by Sir Raymund Marasigan awhile ago entitled the magical mystery show

a few months ago:

you asked me to wake the creature up.
you tried to convince me that it was time.
you said the people needed it.
i said its not a good idea to wake a sleeping beast.
you dont know what will happen when it rises.
you tried to convince me that it will all be good.
you have everything under control.
we argued til the rooster shook and you had an answer to all my fears.
i still dont share your feelings but i will do it for you my old
friend.but be prepared and beware.

now:

the 4 headed hydra is awake. all is not well. the dementors are in
pursuit. the people are restless.promises have been broken.
im kept in the dark but i warned you.

it is changing peoples lives. its changing you right at this very
moment. too many people want a piece of it.

lives, work, and feelings had been put on hold for this circus. i have
done my part. you must keep your word and get this thing under
control. keep the dark at bay. take us to the promised land on the
time that was appointed and give the people what they want.

- end of message.

Sana nga matuloy ang reunion concert despite ng mga news na may gustong pigilan ang concert. Well 8 days to go. I still don't have an invite. I'm crossing my fingers and hopefully I'll be lucky in the next couple of days and eventually get my invite.

Tuloy na ulit sa wakas! Hindi na tobacco company ang magsponsor at di na din sa CCP open grounds.

Message from Sir Raymund Marasigan:

dear everybody

after much ado. the eraserheads concert is most definitely pushing
through.

philip morris and its brands have pulled out from the concert. but
another company is taking over the production. the turn over started
yesterday and they have already started work on the site in the fort.
so you can check.

there are good news and bad news.

unfortunately its no longer free. all the long winded registration
procedures in the red nation site is now void.

the good news is that the age limit is now 12 years old (for safety
reasons)and tickets will be sold so you dont have to wait for
confirmation and what not.

the official announcement and ticketing details will come out in major
newspapers and on the radio on tuesday.

these are the only details i know for now so no need to email me. im
just the drummer.

btw. i just got home from the last rehearsal. the band is cooking. we
will see you all on the 30th.
