About this deal

Following the success of their earlier singles, the Strokes have again found success with songs such as Hard to Explain and Barely Legal.

But years on, the casual objectification and sexual provocation of the image speaks volumes about the music and fashion scenes at the time, and just how much they have changed. CRX, Different Strokes, Julian Casablancas, Little Joy, Nickel Eye, Regina Spektor, Summer Moon, The Voidz. Among the many highlights are Last Nite with its insistent motown backbeat and choppy johnny thunders-like guitar solo, Barely Legal, sounding like 1980s-era Cure fronted by a saucy Iggy Pop, and the jangly Someday with its hairshirt of vulnerability from a bad break-up.Arriving on a wave of well-earned hype rooted in tight chops and a confident swagger, the Strokes offer a rock and roll antidote to the plague of boy bands, teen divas, and petulant rap-rock outfits. I'm surprised at how long it's taken them to do a pressing with both When It Started and New York City Cops but glad to finally own one.

Condition - This item is in Excellent condition or better (unless it says otherwise in the above description). Please note that specific regulations and details may vary based on your location and the applicable laws. With their catchy melodies, raw energy, and stylish image, The Strokes became a leading force in the indie rock scene of the early 2000s. Released in 2001, the album captured a zeitgeist for the hedonism of late nights in sticky-floored dive bars.The Strokes’ dynamic 2001 debut 'Is This It' includes hard-to-resist faves like 'Last Nite' and 'Someday' which helped the growly Julian Casablancas and co.

The vinyl itself is of high quality, providing a low noise floor and ensuring minimal surface noise throughout the record. The album was released in the summer of 2001 and features the singles ‘Hard To Explain’, ‘Last Nite’ and ‘Someday’ all of which were top 20 hits in the UK.While frontman Julian Casablancas (son of elite models founder john) drawls like Lou Reed through a busted intercom, guitarists Nick Valensi and Albert Hammond Jr do Tom Verlaine and Richard Lloyd proud as their sinewy chords intertwine to great effect on the angular The Modern Age and equally neurotic Alone, Together. is one of the most exciting and energetic debut albums to spring from New York’s long dormant club scene. Release Date: 12th January Thank you Strokes for saving us from Nu Metal and bland Post-Britpop indie.
