Last 2018 was the Eraserheads ‘ debut album’s 25th anniversary. The vinyl version was scheduled to celebrate the seminal release that opened the door for the general public to hear a variety of Filipino alternative bands. However, according to the manufacturers of the vinyl album, before being approved, the record had to undergo two test presses.
