Photos from Eheads’ London tour, April 2014.
I knew it. The Final Set Reunion Concert in 2009 wasn’t the end. When you burned your Sticker Happy piano, took your final bow, and left the stage, I knew it wasn’t the end. When people started leaving the MOA grounds, and Raimund came back on stage, followed by Ely, Marcus and Buddy, and Ely shouted, “one for the road!”, and you guys sang three more songs, I knew it wasn’t the end.
Somewhere on the pages of my old (embarrassing) Flickr account, I said, “I still believe that The Final Set is not the last.” And it wasn’t the last, indeed. I knew it wasn’t!
It just can’t be the end for you guys for me. You were like, part of the family. Your songs were the soundtrack of my college years, just like everyone’s.
I can’t wait to hear 1995 and Sabado. I can already feel it.
These things have been trending everywhere you go today: (1) Esquire’s September 2014 issue cover of Eraserheads, reminiscent to the Beatles’ iconic walk down Abbey Road (LOL at the truck in the background, the Beatles’ photo had a Volkswagen beetle in that same spot!). (2) An announcement of two new Eraserheads songs entitled “1995” and “Sabado”. And (3) September 4, this Thursday —the date when the two songs and the magazine will be out. #SAVETHEDATE
I hope we can spend more time together
A few hours is better than ever
If we could only make it longer
A whole day would be fine
A whole week would be fine
A whole month would be fine
A whole year would be fine
A decade would be fine
A century would be fine
Forever would be fine.
And that is how it begins to feel a lot like Christmas.
