Launches Official Fanclub
just got to us that LIPS INC., official management company
of the Eraserheads, is in the process of organizing the
first Official Eraserheads fan club. In the past, fans have been able
to organize themselves or have put up numerous home pages on the Internet
devoted to the band, but as far as we're concerned, this is the first
step by Eheads management to organize their fan base.
Manager Karina Araneta, writing on the band's e-mail mailing list says, "LIPS, INC.
is putting up its own official E-fans club. Registration will be held at our office (24-C
Malingap St. Teacher's Vill. QC) on January 31, Natin99 from 1 - 5pm. There will be a
minimal registration fee which we will announce later on along with other details. Please
spread the word around. And see you there!"
"Natin99" of course refers to both the year
(1999) and title of the Eraserheads' upcoming album to be released tentatively
on April 1999. For a few months that had been rumored to be the working
title of the upcoming all-Tagalog release -- lately we've gotten some
sort of additional confirmation on that. Recently, a subscriber on the
Eraserheads' mailing list had discovered blue and red "Natin99"
stickers plastered in a phone booth in Quezon City. Coincidence or early
warning device? The truth is out there.
In related news, LIPS INC has also announced a series of overseas concerts for the Eheads,
starting off with a trip to Malaysia sometime February and a trip to Indonesia in March.
Both junkets are part of promotional activities organized by BMG Records for their
SouthEast Asian album "Aloha Milkyway". A confirmed Australia concert is
scheduled on April 24. Sorry to our US and Canadian readers, no North American trips for
1999 are scheduled at this time.
