Product Details
The Exploding Hearts ? Guitar Romantic is universally regarded as an all time punk rock classic. Causing an immediate sensation upon its release in March 2003, Dirtnap sold out of the first pressing of Guitar Romantic in 6 days, based entirely on word-of-mouth (the band had never played outside Portland/Seattle). Within a month, press and radio were going nuts, and shortly after major labels were beating down their doors, promoters were falling over themselves to book the band on tour, clothing endorsement offers were pouring in, etc. Then on July 20th, 2003, tragedy struck. 3/4ths of the band were killed in a van accident on their way home to Portland from their first ever trip to California (playing to a sold-out Bottom Of The Hill followed by a now legendary unannounced show at Thee Parkside in San Francisco). The oldest member of the band was 23.Since then, the hype and mystique surrounding the first and only Exploding Hearts full length has grown steadily, to the point where this is now Dirtnap?s all time best seller, despite the fact that just about no one outside the Pacific NW ever actually saw the band. For the uninitiated, think power pop with lots 70?s punk and even a little Motown/Stax influence. Bittersweet romantic lyrics, classic pop guitar riffs, perfect production, plus incomparable style and attitude add up to one of the best records ever made.
