Lost master tapes and album photo: How Eraserheads’ vinyl release came about
Eraserheads left its legion of fans with a smile when it announced last year that it will release a limited-edition vinyl copy of its maiden album “Ultraelectromagneticpop!”
This came in time for the silver anniversary of the album, which includes some of Eraserheads’ most iconic songs that brought the band to the roster of Filipino music icons.
The release, however, was delayed and failed to come about in time for the anniversary commemoration.
Ely Buendia, former frontman of Eraserheads, said pursuing the vinyl repressing of the album “was like a detective story.”
