Pare Ko, a Limited Edition Eheads Vinyl Album is Coming Your Way For the First Time!

First released in the form of cassette tapes in July 1993, Eraserheads' game-changing debut album Ultraelectromagneticpop! is now available in Spotify, Apple Music, and Itunes. And the greater news is that the warm analog quality of the album will soon be part of our early morning grind!

Just this week, the band confirmed that a limited run of 2,500 remastered vinyl by legendary audio engineer Bernie Grundman will also be released for the first time in their history. Yay! 

Produced by Offshore Music, an indie record label headed by Ely Buendia and Sony Music Philippines, the 180-gram vinyl versions will be shipped early next year. 

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 who, 25 years ago, have no idea that their daily lives would be touched by these people’s rhythm and melodies.

The ultra-electro magic of its classics like “Maling Akala”, “Toyang”, and “Ligaya” has brought the band a strong following in Philippine rock scene that 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. However, it was cut short due to Buendia's health condition. They, again, 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?
