Tikman ang Langit: An Anthology on the Eraserheads

I just got a pre-release copy of an upcoming book "Tikman ang Langit: An Anthology on the Eraserheads" (eraserheads anthology)

The book's blurb state:

"For most Filipino youths in the Nineties, the Eraserheads was the band that defined their generation. From the underground scene, the band led the alternative music's invasion of the mainstream and ushered in a new era of Pinoy music.
In this compilation of essays and never-before-seen photos, the E-heads' exploits and influences are potrayed from the point-of-view of the fans -- stories that depict how an ordinary-looking "combo" made their impact, and why we regard them as the last great Pinoy band."

This one-year in the making book is composed of fourteen essays written by fans of the Eraserheads for fellow fans. Essays were written by Abigail Ho, Chong Ardivilla, Claire Maneja, Edwin Sallan, Erwin Oliva, Faye Ilogon, Jing Gaddi, Jing Garcia, Joel Pinaroc, Joey Alarilla, Julio Dela Cruz Jr., Marco Abella, Vernon Sarne, and Vincent Batacan.
Compiled by Melvin Calimag (Infotech reporter of the Manila Bulletin) and Jing Garcia (Techtimes editor of the Manila Times). This is edited by Ces Rodriguez (former editor of Jingle Music Magazine). Foreword by Robin Rivera. Published by Visual Print Enterprises.
Personalities who provided blurbs for the book includes Jessica Zafra, Eric Caruncho, and Lourd de Veyra.
This book will be officially launched this February 2007 at a selling price of one hundred eighty pesos (P180). Check out the book's official website for more info!!!
