Ten Bands One Cause Pink Vinyl Reissue Benefiting Gilda's Club NYC!
Ten Bands re-issue their albums on pink vinyl, all for one cause. This is the fifth year for the initiative that has raised over $200,000 for Gilda's Club NYC, an organization that provides community support for both those diagnosed with cancer and their caretakers. It is named after comedian Gilda Radner, who passed away from cancer at the age of 43 in 1989. 2018's pink vinyl reissues come from Silversun Pickups, Modest Mouse, Local Natives, Black Moth Super Rainbow, EL-P, Tyler Childers, Soccer Mommy, Daryl Hall & John Oates, The All-American Rejects and The Rocky Horror Picture Show Soundtrack.
On their promising 1996 full-length debut, This Is A Long Drive For Someone With Nothing To Think About, Modest Mouse was able to distinguish themselves from their contemporaries right out of the gate with Isaac Brock's deeply introspective lyrics and offbeat delivery and the band's writhing yet buoyant rhythms already fully formed. The same can be said of their penchant for long album titles as well. Includes the geographically evocative standouts "Dramamine," "Breakthrough" and "Custom Concern."
