By Phillip Crandall

"It's Time To Party," the 1st song off of I Get Wet, opens with a rapid-fire guitar line - not anything fancy, only a couple crunchy strength chords to acclimate the ears - repeated two times ahead of a booming bass drum joins in to supply a quarter-note countdown. A faint, swirling influence intensifies with every one bass kick and, by way of the 8th one, the ears have prepped themselves for the steel mayhem they're approximately to obtain. whilst all of it drops, and the joyous onslaught of 100 guitars is ultimately learned, you will have to forgive your ears for being duped right into a fake experience of safety, simply because it is that moment intensified drop a number of seconds later - the single the place but extra guitars show up and Andrew W.K. slam-plants his vocal flag via screaming the song's titular line - that truly floods the mind with endorphins, serotonin, dopamine, and no matter what else formulates invincibility.

Polished to a brilliant overdubbed-to-oblivion sheen, the party-preaching I Get Wet did not trap the zeitgeist of rock on the flip of the century; it captured the timelessness of stripling, as energized, extraordinary, and unapologetically silly as ever. With insights from associates and extraordinary support from the mythological maniac himself - whose sermon and pa sensibilities proceed to polarize - this publication 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 audience.
