Halina't tikman ang langit


Whether we like it or not, the Eraserheads juggernaut rolls on and on - almost six years after the band's official demise.

This time it's in the form of collection of essays in book form. Entitled "Tikman ang Langit: An Anthology on the Eraserheads" (after the chorus of a commercial performed by the band for Burger Machine), the book features pieces written mostly by a group of young technology journalists (banded together as the group known as Cyberpress), who've taken a brief sidetrip from their usual beats to pay homage to the band that performed the soundtrack of their generation.

Added in are bits and blurbs from three of the bandmembers themselves - Raimund Marasigan, Buddy Zabala, and Marcus Adoro, as well as former co-manager Jessica Zafra, and album producer Robin Rivera (undoubtedly the "George Martin" to this fab four). The book was compiled by Jing Garcia and Melvin Calimag, tech writers of the Manila Times and Manila Bulletin respectively.

The book is set to launch this Wednesday, February 28, at 3pm at Powerbooks Greenbelt in Makati.
