Eraserheads play together again at #EsquireEheads event
MANILA, Philippines – Sit down, this really happened. The Eraserheads performed together as a group again at the launch party for Esquire’s September issue in Makati City on September 4.
Who can forget the familiar twinge brought about by just the opening notes of “Magasin”? Lucky audience members got to experience that live again as the group played a very brief set, which also included their hits “Sembreak” and “Alapaap.”
This Esquire issue is momentous because aside from gracing the cover, the group also released two new songs called “Sabado” and “1995” in a CD available with purchase of the magazine.
Here’s a snippet from the party, showing the group participating in a toast to this endeavor.
Considered one of the biggest groups of the ’90s, the Eraserheads, composed of Ely Buendia, Buddy Zabala, Raymund Marasigan, and Marcus Aldoro rose to fame with the album Ultraelectromagneticpop!. Among their many hits, the band is known for songs such as “Pare Ko,” “Ligaya,” and “Ang Huling El Bimbo.”
In 2002, the group disbanded after lead singer Ely Buendia departed from the group. Each member has since pursued various projects.
In 2008, the group reunited for a reunion concert but this was cut short due to Buendia’s health. In December of last year, the group performed in Dubai and last April 2014, performed in London for a special concert. – Rappler.com
