It is considered the the band's biggest-selling album and their only release that went platinum by the RIAA, selling over a million copies. To be clear, I'm referring to the 1983 first press on two tone label.The album also features many of their well-known songs, including "Blister in the Sun", "Kiss Off", "Add It Up" and "Gone Daddy Gone". I haven't heard other pressings recently, but I don't recall the sonic quality being so freggin awesome when I listened to this in my youth..I didn't have this particular release then.At this time Gordon began attending Milwaukee public school—Rufus King High School, from which he graduated in 1981.After graduating from high school, he worked briefly as an encyclopedia salesman.The liner notes to the Violent Femmes's compilation album Permanent Record describe Gano as "a devout Baptist".In 1979 the Gano family moved to nearby Hales Corners, where his father took over an existing American Baptist congregation.
It has a wide dynamic range, particularly in the snare drum, and vocals where it's most valuable for me, as well as in the overall mix.

Album sales: 1,000,000 First release date: April 1983 The debut studio album from the Violent Femmes. I've compared it to both the 1984 repress and the 1987 CD. This is an album that is supposed to make you get up and dance. There is some interesting panning involved, and again... I particularly like the bass tones, although everything is mixed and blended much to my liking.
As of 2011 Gano is writing, recording and performing with ex-members of The Bogmen, Billy and Brendan Ryan, under the name Gordon Gano & The Ryans.
Their first album, entitled Under the Sun, was released in September 2009 on Yep Roc Records.
