The hottest local acts join forces as they bring us a compilation of hits from the iconic Filipino pop-rock band Eraserhead in "The Reunion: An Eraserheads Tribute Album."

MYX Philippines was fortunate enough to be invited to the album's listening party at Scarlet Jazz Kitchen, Timog and the artists have expressed their deepest gratitude to be part of the compilation album. 


Johnoy Danao, who delivered his rendition of "Pare Ko", shared that it was scary at first but at the back of his mind, it was a great opportunity to cover one of his idols. "Yung unang una kong reaction.. kinakabahan.. pero at the top of my mind, isang malaking pagkakataon na mai-record yung isang kanta ng Eraserheads.. so medyo hati-hati.. kabadong (at) excited." And if there's one song that he wants to cover in the future, it would be "Tikman".

 

6cyclemind frontman, Tutti Caringal, revealed that it was a very challenging experience for the band since they had to do a cover of a song they already did in the past. He shared "It feels really good and we're happy to be part of this one because we were already part of the first one (Ultraelectromagnetic Jam)... and we did the same song during that album and it was "Alapaap" and now it's "Alapaap" again so i guess mas challenging ngayon (dahil) paano namin malalagpasan yung rendition na ginawa namin." An addition to the song they covered was the presence of Eunice of Gracenote, who's an upcoming artist.


Callalily's Kean Cipriano, on the other hand, is also very happy to be part of the album and "Hard To Believe" is a song he wants to cover in the future.


Ney and Yeng Constantino, who did a duet of "Kailan", shared the process when doing the cover of the Eraserhead hit. Both of them were really hands-on on the arragement of the song and Ney mentioned the difficulty of having a duet, "Medyo mahirap kasi we had different keys... so ang galing lang ng banda ko kung paano nila nirender yung kanta and syempre ang ganda din ng boses ni Yeng." 


Tanya Markova frontman Norma Love shared that he was really a fan back then. When asked about their experience working on the album, he shared "Isa tong napakagandang experience para sa band kasi yung kantang "Hey Jay" ng Eraserheads sobrang akma sa Tanya Markova kasi ginawa namin siyang fun."
