Clothing brand Team Manila is celebrating three decades since the band Eraserheads was formed — arguably the most popular rock band in the country — by dropping a collection of merchandise referencing the band’s songs and members, starting today at their flagship store Suez & Zapote in Makati City.
Founded in the early ’90s, Pinoy pop culture’s favorite group has disbanded several times in the past, before officially calling it quits in 2007. Its members, Ely Buendia, Raimund Marasigan, Marcus Adoro, and Buddy Zabala are still actively creating music in separate solo and group acts. In 2008, the band reunited for a big one-off Eraserheads Reunion Concert in Pasay City, which was attended by a crowd of 60,000 people, but was cut short because front man Ely Buendia suffered a heart attack mid-show.
But now, Team Manila’s assembled their faces so that you’ll remember them just like it was the ’90s (ah, sweet nostalgia). Expect everything from bucket hats carrying the band’s name (priced at PHP695 or US$14), plus psychedelic-colored shirts, and stained-glass designs featuring all four group members (PH845 or US$17).
Several Eraserheads songs, including Julie Tearjerky, Bog-chi (a slang word for “to eat”), and Waiting for the Bus are also reimagined as designs spread across different kinds of merchandise such as bucket hats (PHP695 or US$14), tote bags (PHP395 or US$8), pullovers (PHP2,195 or US$43), and even six-pack stickers (PHP195 or US$4).
Just for today’s launch, store hours are stretched from 10am to 9pm, instead of the usual 7pm closing time.
