RIYL: parties, pizza, pizza parties, pizza party-packs
Label: Enjoy the Ride Records
Singer.¬† Songwriter.¬† Pianist.¬† Philosopher.¬† Partier.¬† Andrew W.K. is the compound of every positive thing in the universe.¬† True love, pepperoni pizza, winter solstice, arm wrestling, the miracle of child birth, guitar solos, double rainbows…they all have at least a drop of W.K. sweat embedded in their DNA.¬† Like a phoenix somersaulting out of the embers of Y2K, Andrew Fetterly Wilkes-Krier began this millennium with four words.¬† Party ‘Til You Puke.¬† Hard synth pop?¬† Classical rock?¬† Pizzacore?¬† Wtf was this new aural sensation?¬† Whatever it was, it spawned 2001’s immediate rock and roll classic I Get Wet.¬† Whether you’ve heard it or not, it’s in you.¬† Party Hard isn’t just a song.¬† It’s a way of life.
Here’s the thing.¬† A lot of people think that’s where the story ends.¬† That’s where they’re wrong.¬† DEAD WRONG.¬† Andrew W.K. followed up the party with another party…2003’s The Wolf.¬† From the cannonball thud of the first symphonic blast of Victory Strikes Again to the final organ fadeout of I Love Music, Andrew W.K.’s sophomore effort is insanely, egregiously, painfully overlooked…so much so, in fact, that they never even bothered pressing it to vinyl.¬† Until NOW, MFers.¬† Thanks to Enjoy the Ride Records, we now have a gorgeous swirly slab of wonderful for you to invite into your homes.¬† It’s limited to only 500 copies and I’m betting they don’t last long.¬† Listen to the album, grab some vinyl after the ‘buy’ link and Make America Party Again.
