Sub Pop 645
Released on March 5, 2013
Vinyl includes MP3 download card
Fuckin A is The Thermals’ second album, and it was released by Sub
Pop on May 18th, 2004. The Thermals were formed in May of 2002 in
Portland, OR. This crack three-member outfit released their debut album
More Parts Per Million on Sub Pop after being brought to the label’s
attention by Ben Gibbard of the Postal Service and Death Cab for Cutie.
Their second album,
Fuckin A was recorded and mixed in all of four days at Avast Studios
by Chris Walla, who shares Gibbard’s Death Cab pedigree and has lent
production duties to Hot Hot Heat, Nada Surf and many others. On this
album the band retains their raw energy and charisma, while upping the
fidelity ante significantly. In short, it is a perfect sophomore record.
Since its release, Fuckin A has sold over 14,000 copies, and it has
been out of print on vinyl for years. 2013 is The Thermals’ tenth
anniversary, and they will be touring the US to celebrate this occasion.
