E-heads Reunion and Rakenrol

I SUPER envy those guys who watched the Eraserheads Reunion Concert in Taguig City this Saturday. I was watching the gig video from YOUTUBE and Inquirer VDO, with the crowds going gaga singing along with Ely and the rest of the band was both spectacular things to behold. This kind of event made me missed Manila and its music scene more. To most of the Filipinos who grew of with E-heads music the reunion concert is way bigger than Beijing Olympics or Democrats National Convention in the US. Opening the gig with the infamous psychedelic Alapaap, the band performed their songs that took the crowd back to the best of 90’s Pinoy alternative and rakenrol. I was only watching the video but I feel the energy and the excitement with these great four musicians reunited again doing their craft onstage live and made everybody happy hearing and living with them again.

Eventually the concert was cut short after Ely experienced chest problem and rushed to Makati Med. Well, let’s all hope for Ely’s recovery and good health. The historical event was documented here.



Talking of notes and scales, I was exchanging thoughts with Jo in YM about Manila music scene and "good" bands, sorry Cueshe, SpongeCola and 6Cyclemind not included, and send file me this music video from Camerawalls. Clem, after quitting with Orange and Lemons last year, still sounded like Morissey but this song from his new band is really good stuff the title “ Clinicaly Dead for 16 Hrs” is catchy that plays in your mind over and over again that makes it a super last song syndrome.
