I discovered this “dirty little treasures of a pleasure pet” doing a quick review of the book! Thanks a lot!
i have already read this book and i think it’s great! kahit na… i was still a toddler then nung eheads era (i was born in 1991).. i can really relate to the essays on this book kasi nga like them.. i’m a fan… i think they’re right when they said na though they (the band) had already disbanded and pursued different paths.. that doesn’t mean that the music’s gone… it lives on in the hearts of their undying fans… the songs of eraserheads were the soundtracks of their lives… i want those to be my life’s soundtracks too.. 😀
i recommend this book to all eheads fans! pati na din sa mga hindi fans… wee…
Si Abi Ho, kapwa contributor sa Tikman Ang Langit, ang nagbalita nito.

Isang kapwa E-heads fan ang nagsulat tungkol sa book. Salamat sa Extra Gulong blog.
i finally have my own copy of tikman ang langit:an anthology on the eraserheads. i spent Saturday night and early Sunday morning reading it. it was mixed emotions. i was able to relate to the articles because i was once an eheads fan. i felt happy reminiscing the “glory” days, and sad, at the same time, knowing that those days will never happen again.
Sa isang katulad ko na “hindi talaga fan ng E-heads,” ang latest review ng Tikman ng Langit ay isang eye-opener. Sige aaminin ko na. Masyado akong exposed sa Western music noon kaya “Puro quotation lang ng nabasa nya sa mga website na nakita nya. Natural, dahil hindi naman sya fan ng E-heads.” Salamat sa honest opinion mo. Natumbok mo, pre or mare (ano ba talaga?). Pero talagang natuwa ang mga nagbuo ng libro at very honest ka sa iyong pagpuna ng libro. Okay yan. At least na-promote mo pa din kami 😉
Ang tanong ko lang, eh, sino ba si Boy Dapa?
Sa totoo lang, madami ang nagtataka bakit kami pa ang napili na magsulat ng anthology tungkol sa bandang ito. Well, I was at the right place at the right time. Swerte talaga. Wala lang. Anyway, salamat uli sa mga bumili ng libro. Ito ay available sa Powerbooks.
Araw-araw madami akong nakikita ng mga nagpopost ng kanilang first-hand witnessing ng book launch. Katulad nitong YouTube video ng tugtugan ng Marcus Highway. Galing!
At eto yung Cambio playing “Magasin” with Marcus Adoro.
Same video pero iba kumuha.
Salamat ke Alex Villafania sa pag-feature sa book launch on INQUIRER.net. Eto excerpt:
MANILA — Five years since the original Eraserheads split up, three of the members have again met for a little gathering that culminated in the launch of the very first book about the legendary band.
Buddy Zabala, Marcus Adoro and Raymund Marasigan were present at the Powerbooks Greenbelt 3 to support “Tikman ang Langit,” the book that is considered as the first published material about any Filipino band in the Philippines.
For the 50 or so people present during the launch, they were treated to almost an hour of Eraserheads rendition by Lei Bautista of the band Prettier than Pink. But the ultimate moment during launch was when Zabala, Adoro and Marasigan, along with members of the band Cambio, played “Magasin.” It was the first time that all three played together after a four-year hiatus.
