About this deal

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. The guitars have a satisfying crunch, the drums punch through with intensity, and Julian Casablancas' iconic vocals take center stage in a way that feels raw and unfiltered. The Strokes" owe more to "Joy Division" or "The Velvet Underground", than they do to either of the afforementioned (not to say massively over-rated) bands. Due to inventory and accounting purposes, we do not exchange items received for different items than originally purchased.

Is This It" remains a modern classic, and hearing it on vinyl adds a whole new dimension to the listening experience. Is this it", is one of those rare musical treats that remains consistently brilliant from start to finish, with its catchy rythyms and chorus lines and tremendous use of the bass guitar, best captured in the albums two stand out tracks (In my opinion anyway) "Barely legal" and "Hard to explain". You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. Per an interview in 2001/2002 with Julian Casablancas (I read it back then and wish I could find it now), about 5,000 copies were pressed before 9/11 with the song "New York City Cops. It’s not entirely clear right now if release is a German territory exclusive, but it looks that way (I can’t find any listings for this elsewhere).Following the success of their earlier singles, the Strokes have again found success with songs such as Hard to Explain and Barely Legal. 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. They didn't press more US vinyl copies for several years (there were just the original ~5,000 floating around), but when they did start re-pressing vinyl copies years later, they kept "New York City Cops" and used the same catalog number/bar code as the 2001 vinyl version.

We carry a broad range of CDs and vinyl (7”/12” singles and LPs) and specialise in indie, alternative, rock, punk, metal plus a few other genres. 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. Tracks like "Last Nite," "Someday," and "Hard to Explain" showcase the band's knack for crafting irresistible hooks and catchy choruses. Whether you're a longtime fan or discovering The Strokes for the first time, this vinyl edition is a true testament to the band's talent and a reminder of why this album remains a classic in the rock genre.is one of the most exciting and energetic debut albums to spring from New York’s long dormant club scene. The album which changed modern rock music back in 2001; you can blame them for skinny jeans but ten years on you can't argue with the likes of 'Last Nite' or 'Hard To Explain'.
