:: TIMELINE - An Incomplete & 99% Accurate E-storical Record :: 1987 to 1996

1987 : Pre-Eraserheads

- Ely's first college band was called,
Bluidie Tryste, from the freshmen's dorm, Kalayaan Residence Hall at UP Diliman. The line-up was: Raymund Dela Pena (aka "Luci") - vocals, guitars / Ely Buendia - bass / Earl Pangilinan - keyboards / Drexis Tabiligan (?) - drums.
Their first gig was in a "protest concert" in the AS building lobby. A memorable gig! -
[read story]

- This band did covers by bands such as: The Cure, The Smiths, U2, The Police, The Dawn, Van Halen.


1988 : Curfew & Sunday School


- By this time, Raymund, Marcus and Buddy were freshmen at UP.

- Ely and Raymund "Luci" wanted to form a new band so they posted audition ads at Kalayaan dorm. Raymund (Marasigan) was the first to respond. His piece was The Cure's "Hot Hot Hot". He later invited Marcus and Buddy. They jammed at Alberto's rehearsal studio behind the Nepa Q-Mart in Cubao, Q.C. Nothing happened with that audition/jam.

- Raymund, Marcus and Buddy formed their own band called,
Curfew. They had a lady vocalist named Candy Pelayo.
- They covered bands such as: The Primitives, The Housemartins, The Bolshoi, Gene Loves Jezebel, The Soup Dragons.
[view a Red Rocks ad that listed "Curfew", c/o Josh Sistemio of "Cassette Tape Nation" on facebook.com]

- Ely and Raymund "Luci" formed a new band called,
Sunday School. They only had session drummers and Raymund Marasigan would sometimes session for them.
- Wanting to focus on jazz, instead of "new wave", "Luci" eventually left Sunday School. Raymund brought in Marcus and Buddy from Curfew and joined Ely; hence the merge gave birth to a new band called, Eraserheads.


1989 : Eraserheads


- The "Eraserheads" combo was born out of two bands: "Sunday School" (Ely) from Molave Residence Hall & "Curfew" (Raymund, Buddy & Marcus) from Narra Residence Hall; University of the Philippines, Diliman, Q.C.
- Raymund would usually get them gigs around the campus. However, they'd usually play last when the crowd was almost gone!
- They did covers by bands such as: The Cure, Sex Pistols, The Beatles.
- They had a small but loyal fanbase in the campus.
- the combo played their first ever gig at a variety show called "Peace Lang Ha!", on the AS Steps in UP. The show was sponsored by the Sigma Delta Phi sorority.
