Day 31, and the final day of the @modernwax #augustvinylchallenge
goes to The White Stripes Icky Thump. Their sixth and final studio album, Icky Thump entered the UK Albums Chart at number one and debuted at number two on the Billboard 200 with 223,000 copies sold. It was the band's only album on Warner Bros. Records.
Day 30 of the @modernwax #augustvinylchallenge
goes to Jimmy Eat World’s Bleed American. Interesting fact: Originally released as Bleed American, it was re-released as Jimmy Eat World following the September 11 attacks on New York and Washington, D.C., which took place less than two months after its initial release.
Of course, this album features some of the band’s most notable singles and every song is perfect, but the track "If You Don't, Don't" will always be my favorite and always brings me joy.
Day 29 of the @modernwax #augustvinylchallenge
goes to Blink-182’s Enema of the State. During the late 90s, Blink completely took the world by storm and as a young shithead teenager, this album was pure gold. Green grass, sun, swimming pools, teen boys obsessed with and mildly terrified by sex, jokes about having sex with things that are not other humans, and a healthy side of toilet-oriented gags. This was middle-class teenage life as one great shiny kindergarten, only with alcohol, online pornography, and secondary sexual characteristics. To this day, when this album starts with the first few notes of “Dumpweed”, I get chills.
Day 28 of the @modernwax #augustvinylchallenge
goes to The Kills Ash & Ice. On June 6th, 2016, I was 1 of 13 people to be a part of @thekills
art project “Under the Gun” at the world famous @shamrocksocialclub.
Alison and Jamie hosted a tattoo party where each participant was issued a symbol that corresponds with a track from their upcoming album to be tattooed. It’s was a great night meeting new friends including @amosshart
and definitely a night to remember.
If you want to see more of this event, YouTube “the kills under the gun”.
, I recently acquired a Hofner Galaxie that needs some work or can be parted out. It’s all yours if you’re interested mate👍🏼
Day 27 of the @modernwax #augustvinylchallenge
goes to John Carpenter’s Anthology. This record features thirteen film theme songs from Carpenter’s career, all of which have been newly recorded with son Cody Carpenter and godson Daniel Davies. Even if you have somehow never seen a John Carpenter movie, you know what one sounds like. One of America’s finest living filmmakers, The master of horror.
Day 26 of the @modernwax #augustvinylchallenge
goes to The Killers Sams Town. From the alternate artwork, to the hardcover book style packaging, this 10th anniversary release does not disappoint. Limited to 5016 worldwide, it’s not the rarest in my collection but I had to feature it. In my opinion, It’s an incredible record filled with many memories which easily takes a spot in my top 20 favorite albums.
Day 25 of the @modernwax #augustvinylchallenge
goes to the album Rome by Danger Mouse and Daniele Luppi. Recorded using vintage equipment and, as well as featuring musicians who recorded spaghetti western soundtracks, also features a reunited Cantori Moderni – the choir put together by Alessandro Alessandroni – which features on the soundtrack to The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. The album also features vocals by Jack White and Norah Jones.
Day 24 of the @modernwax #augustvinylchallenge
goes to Buckingham Nicks. Recorded at the world famous Sound City Studios in Van Nuys California, Buckingham Nicks is notable as an early commercial collaboration between Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham. The album was a commercial failure on its original release, and despite the duo's subsequent success, it has yet to be commercially remastered or re-released on any format since 1973. Nicks and Buckingham joined Fleetwood Mac in January 1975, six weeks after producer Keith Olsen played their track "Frozen Love" for drummer Mick Fleetwood, who had come to Sound City in California in search of a studio to record Fleetwood Mac's next album.
Day 23 of the @modernwax #augustvinylchallenge
goes to the 1992 reissue of Nirvana’s Bleach. Bleach failed to chart in the U.S. upon its original release, but was well received by critics. The album was re-released internationally by Geffen Records in 1992 following the success of Nirvana's second album, Nevermind. Since its release in 1989, Bleach has sold more than 1,900,000 copies in the United States alone and is Sub Pop's best-selling album to date.
Day 22 of the @modernwax #augustvinylchallenge
goes to The Bronx’s Mariachi El Bronx (Side A) / The Bronx (Side B) Live. One side, heavy punk rock, and the other side, Mariachi music. This release really showcases the creativity and versatility of one little band
Day 21 of the @modernwax #augustvinylchallenge
goes to The Beatles - Meet the Beatles. On February 9th 1964, four lads from Liverpool changed the world when they performed live to over 73 million people on the Ed Sullivan show. To this day, they are still considered the most historical and influential band of all time. I could go on and on about the importance of this record / band, but I’ll just leave you with one word... BEATLEMANIA.
Day 20 of the @modernwax #augustvinylchallenge
goes to Back to the Future: Music from the Motion Picture Soundtrack. Where we’re going, we don’t need roads...
