Ultraelectromagneticpop! - the classic debut album by The Eraserheads celebrates its 25th year with a remastered edition by Bernie Grundman, legendary audio engineer.

This 12-track album introduced the quartet band of lead singer-rhythm guitarist Ely Buendia, lead guitarist Marcus Adoro, bass player Buddy Zabala, and drummer Raymund Marasigan to the listening public.
The ultra-electro magic of its classics like “Maling Akala”, “Toyang”, and “Ligaya” brought the band a strong following in Philippine rock scene—they were even lauded as “Filipino Fab Four” ala The Beatles.
In 2002, the band broke up due to internal conflict but they did a reunion concert in 2008. It was cut short due to Buendia's health condition. They staged another reunion concert in 2009.
Now, Filipino Gen Xers and older millennials are nothing but thrilled by the announcement and maybe daydreaming to get some new Eheads’ music. Perhaps a reunion concert would do, eh? But “Easy Ka Lang”, okay?
