Polished to a vivid 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 stripling, as energized, impressive, and unapologetically silly as ever. With insights from pals and exceptional support from the mythological maniac himself — whose sermon and pa sensibilities proceed to polarize — this booklet chronicles the sound's evolution, uncovers the relevance of Steev Mike, and examines how Andrew W.K.'s inviting, inclusive lyrics create the last word shared adventure among artist and viewers.
