Eraserheads Wiki

Ultraelectromagneticpop! (stylized as ultraelectromagneticpop!) is the debut studio album of Eraserheads, released in 1993. The album produced some of the band's most recognizable songs such as "Ligaya," "Toyang," and "Pare Ko."

Ultraelectromagneticpop! and its accompanying tour are credited for bringing the Philippine underground college rock scene into public awareness and for the emergence of "Eraserheadsmania" because of the band's successive hit singles.


According to Buendia, writing and composing the songs took four years and the actual recording lasted for a year.[1] Most of the songs have already been staple tracks performed by the band during events at the campus events prior to being signed by BMG Records.[2] Three songs from the album were previously recorded in the band's demo entitled Pop-U!. Some of the working titles of the album were "Lutong Bahay", "Pekaloid", "The Klasik Kapums Konsert Kookout", and "Eraserheads Greatest Hits Vol. 5".[3]

The title of the album is a pun on the ultraelectromagnetic top, a weapon from the anime Voltes V, which was immensely popular in the Philippines.

The album was released by BMG Records under the label's local division, Musiko Records in July 1993. In 2008, the album was re-released together with the band's other albums where the members also re-created the album art as cover.
