Product Notes

The fan favorite semininal debut by Andrew W.K on vinyl for the first time in close to a decade. I Get Wet includes the anthems 'Party Hard', 'She Is beautiful', 'Ready To Die' & 'I Love NYC'. The album comes housed in a completely upgraded gatefold jacket printed by Stoughton which includes spot gloss over the iconic bloody nose cover image to really make the cover art POP! Andrew W.K. has a mission-to dirty up rock & roll, literally and figuratively. And while that may seem a sizeable task for one man to shoulder, consider that the Michigan-reared screamer has devoted the whole of his debut album I Get Wet to ecstatic celebration of the id. It's a heck of an idea, and it's brought W.K. The fawning adoration of the British press who, after enduring years of ambient art-rock inspired by paranoia about technology (you know who we mean), are rushing to embrace W.K.'s credo that everyone should party till they puke. W.K. stays on theme throughout I Get Wet's 12 frenetic tracks-song titles like the aforementioned 'Puke,' 'It's Time to Party,' 'Party Hard,' and 'Fun Night' pretty much make the point. But W.K.'s more-is-more approach holds true of the music too-it's cheesy new wave meets spiky metal but delivered with such self-conscious force that it's almost bubblegum. Think of the gargantuan riffs of 'Detroit Rock City' smeared with Flock of Seagulls-style synth while some manic propagandist hollers himself hoarse over top. I Get Wet has one setting-loud-but not since the Stooges has unmitigated hedonism, and just plain headbanging, seemed like a plan. Mighty members of the three-finger devil salute fraternity, your soundtrack has arrived.
