Marcus Adoro on Rubber Shoes, Exercise, and the Eraserheads Reunion
Anyone who is at all interested in the upcoming Eraserheads reunion concert should definitely check out this exclusive interview with Marcus Adoro, by Aldus Santos, on Pulse.ph. It's the only feature I know of about the matter that is an actual interview. Plus, it's funny and informative, particularly about their rehearsals, and the gear geeks among you will love it too. Kudos to Aldus! And applause for Mr. Adoro as well, for his candor. Here are some excerpts:
ALDUS: So, you guys…
MARCUS: Hindi kame nag-uusap; mental telepathy lang [laughs].
ALDUS: What are your feelings about the band, now that you’ve decided to play this reunion show?
MARCUS: Gusto ko lang magbigay. Party tayo, ‘di ba? Puta, ‘di ba? ‘Di alam ng lahat—para sa mga kids, ‘di ba? Gusto kong magbigay. [‘Tsaka] pumayag ako dahil tao lang ako, pare [laughs].
ALDUS: How are you preparing for the thing?
MARCUS: The usual—library. Ang importante, ‘yung ano, good vibes. Importante ‘yung good vibes, pare. ‘Yun ang pinaka-importante sa lahat. I'm preparing for it physically, I jog and swim at least every day, ‘tsaka I rehearse on my own s’yempre. ‘Tsaka, gear-wise, i-po-program ko na ‘yung bagong effects, ‘tsaka s’yempre kung ano hitsura ko [laughs]. And the guitars that I will use, isa-isa kong ina-acquire.
