'Make Up The Breakdown' Turns 20!
Updated: Nov 14, 2022
Once upon a time I managed a fairly popular blog called Rock Sellout. A lot of my friends that were involved with that project are still friends and follow this page. Why am I mentioning this? There were bands and albums that remind me of those days. This is one of them:
Sub Pop will reissue Hot Hot Heat's 'Make Up The Breakdown' to celebrate the album's 20th anniversary. The album was produced by Jack Endino with additional engineering and mixing from former Death Cab for Cutie member Chris Walla.
The deluxe edition will be expanded to twelve tracks and now includes “Apt. 101” and “Move On,” two tracks only previously available with a UK-only single for “Bandages.”
The album was #20 on Pitchfork's 50 Best Albums of 2002. The songs "Bandages" and "Talk to Me, Dance With Me" were both #1 on alternative radio (KROQ).
