Fire Records at Thirty Three and a Third: The Thirty Three and a Third Vinyl Giveaway

Formed in 1984, Fire Records has a huge number of releases in its catalog, and this past week we’ve celebrated their thirty three and a third years of pushing platters into your local mom and pop shops by taking a look at thirty three and a third of the label’s highlights pressed to vinyl. But we’re not done just yet.

The fine folks at Fire have furnished us with a copy of each LP we’ve spotlighted this week, and in one tidy bundle we’re shipping them off to one winner in a Fire at Thirty Three and a Third Giveaway.

Well, to be exact, two of the releases we’ve discussed this week are simply sold out, so we’ve snuck in two worthy replacements. Giant Sand’s Valley of Fire and HTRK’s Nostalgia are no longer available, and for this giveaway they are replaced with Giant Sand’s Blurry Blue Mountain and The Moles’ Tonight’s Music.

Enter to win the thirty three and a third platters from Fire’s catalog by simply citing in the comments below your favorite of the ones we’ve touched upon this week—and briefly why. We’ll choose one worthy winner for the Thirty Three and a Third bundle, notified via email, a week from today, Friday May 19, 2017.

    Mid thirties singles scene was one of my favourite albums of last year and I finally got to see the band play in London after being a fan for three years. Loved the Mental As Anything cover too.

    Spacemen 3 amazingly took the roots of psychedelica and created their unironic drone drug-addled version for the 80’s and 90’s. They also ingeniously laid the groundwork for the masterwork that is Spiritualized. Without Spacemen 3’s undeniable wide-ranging influence, there would be no Tame Impala, Pond, King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard, Ty Segal and most of the important current Bands today that are (subliminally) channeling their sound. Spacemen 3’s imprint on music cannot be ignored or understated.

    I have been amazed by the oversimple yet most intriging teenage blonde face cover of Evan Dando. Love the atmosphere and lyrics but i kinda see my 15 yo self on the cover.

    Foxheads. Say it quickly in a Scottish accent. Released at the height of Thatcherism, 30 years on those Fuckheads are still stalking the UK, preferring to bring back fox hunting than disability benefits. Foxheads Stalk This Land is a political album. It’s hope and despair, anger and joy, melody and mayhem. And it sounds as vital today as it did 30 years ago.

    Mendrugo. Right from the opening track you feel like you’re transported somewhere else, somewhere totally foreign and yet familiar, almost like revisiting an imaginary hiding spot you cooked up in your childhood. Also that album artwork.
