Polished to a vibrant overdubbed-to-oblivion sheen, the party-preaching i am getting rainy didn't catch the zeitgeist of rock on the flip of the century; it captured the timelessness of teenybopper, as energized, extraordinary, and unapologetically silly as ever. With insights from buddies and unparalleled support from the mythological maniac himself — whose sermon and pa sensibilities proceed to polarize — this e-book chronicles the sound's evolution, uncovers the relevance of Steev Mike, and examines how Andrew W.K.'s inviting, inclusive lyrics create the final word shared adventure among artist and viewers.
