VACCINES: Self-titled: LP

Jul 13, 2010

What you get here is some speedy garage-y punk from this Seattle band that was around in the late ‘90s/turn of the century. The Vaccines had a track on a Junk Records compilation way back when and they fit right in with the aesthetic of that label. This LP is packaged beautifully, with a full-color eight page booklet and a huge poster to go alongside the colored vinyl. The whole thing appears to be a real labor of love for all involved. The band played all the local haunts and shared stages with everyone from Fear to Valentine Killers to The Bulemics. Fans of the Weaklings, Electric Frankenstein, Zeke, and the like would find a whole lot to like with the Vaccines.
