Eraserheads fever isn’t over yet. There are quite some things that came up after the Eraserheads reunion concert so as Eraserheads fans we have to watch out for these. It’s really imperative that we have these things so I won’t stall anymore :).
First of all, there will be a reunion concert audio CD that will be released by the end of this year. Sancho confirms it on his email through the Circus Mailing list. Here it goes:

subject [eraserheads] reunion live album
I just got home from Tracks where Angee Rozul and I just finished work on the live reunion album. I’m attached to the project as record producer.
This will be the first album since Circus that’s not produced by Robin Rivera, though this is not the first time for me to produce an Eraserheads rack. I produced their version of Manila for the Hotdog tribute album,
though I wasn’t properly credited on the inlay.
Anyway, the album sounds great. Angee and I also made sure that the “crowd moments” were properly highlighted, specially yung mga sigaw ng “group hug!” and yung mga sing-along parts.
I’ll listen to the whole album again tomorrow (pagod na tenga ko) and see if there are last-minute tweaks. I’ll also give copies to the boys so they can listen and make objections (hopefully none, heheh) before the disc goes to the duplicators.
If all goes well, the CD will be in stores soon. The album cover and inlay is being designed by Cynthia Bauzon-Arre. I’m excited to see the final roduct.
So that’s just the first of all the good news. Jim Ayson of Philmusic.com reveals that Sony BMG is cooking up some interesting stuff such as the Official Reunion Concert DVD, 10 cd Box set of all Eraserheads recording ever and a concert film that will be shown prior to the release of the reunion DVD. I was able to go to some record bars and there really is an Eraserheads craze since their albums are included in the weekly top selling albums. Record stores I’ve been to were Tower Records, Music One and Oddysey.
