Sandwich (stylized as "< S >andwich" in earlier releases) is a Filipino alternative rock band that was formed in 1995 by Raimund Marasigan (former drummer of Eraserheads) and Diego Castillo (The Aga Mulach Experience) for the purpose of fulfilling their mutual desire to work together. Castillo recruited former band mates from The Aga Muhlach Experience Mike Dizon (Teeth & Pedicab) to play drums and Myrene Academia (Imago & Duster) to handle bass duties. Sandwich was searching for a vocalist when music video director Marie Jamora recommended her friend Marc Abaya (Kjwan). A few years earlier, Marasigan was a judge at a contest where Marc Abaya jammed to a Beastie Boys song with his high-school band, Shirley Beans. Abaya then joined Sandwich. Later, Raimund Marasigan assumed main vocal duties when Abaya left, but they remained a 5-piece band as the missing spot was later filled by Mong Alcaraz of the band Chicosci.
