THERMALS IN SPIN or THERMALS VIDEO (best SP video since when…oh yeah EVER) THERMALS PLAY SIREN…THERMALS DON’T
BREAK UP AFTER ONE RECORD (you know you thought it was a possiblity)…THERMALS SELL 60 MORE COPIES OF “MPPM”….. make em say
Hutch, you’re totally right—we just got the SPIN Clips in, plus tons of other insanely awesometastic press on your FANFUCKINGTASTIC ROCK OPUS, FUCKIN’ A, aka My New Favorite Record. As such, the NEWS SHALL BE SHARED!! THE GOSPEL OF THE THERMALS SHALL BE SPREAD WITH GREATER THICKNESS AND INTENSITY ON YE OLDE SUB POP SITE!!!
For starters, I urge everyone to check out the updated Thermals band page (link below)…it’s chock full of tons of glorious new links to glowing show and record reviews, including a link to the SPIN review, which goes a li’l somethin’ like this:
Sub Pop Records
Portland’s Thermals used to be a middling folk duo called Hutch and Kathy. Then, someone dosed their chai lattes with rock n’ roll ritalin and introduced them to a drummer, and they were reborn as a very, very hyper and very, very focused trio: 2003’s MORE PARTS PER MILLION crammed 13 songs into less than half an hour. Polished (albeit with a rusty Brillo pad) by producer Chris Walla, FUCKIN’ A finds the band making like the buzziest Buzzcocks around, flailing through 13 relentless political pop-punk anthems about not wanting to be sedated. Supercharged, furious, hopeful. (Andy Greenwald)
