    The Fire Theft
    Album Details
    • If voted to win, this would be the worldwide debut of the The Fire Theft’s 2003 self-titled Rykodisc debut on vinyl
    • Would include all new artwork & design approved by Jeremy Enigk
    • Would be pressed on 180g vinyl at Record Industry in the Netherlands and come in a gatefold tip-on Stoughton jacket.

    The Fire Theft was an alternative rock band from Seattle formed in 2001 by vocalist/guitarist Jeremy Enigk, bassist Nate Mendel and drummer William Goldsmith; all previous members of Sunny Day Real Estate. Mendel plays bass for the Foo Fighters and Goldsmith drummed for them between 1995 and 1997. Similar to Sunny Day Real Estate’s last album, The Rising Tide, The Fire Theft released their self-titled debut album on Rykodisc on September 23, 2003. A tour promoting the album followed the release. There have been on and off discussions between band members about reactivating The Fire Theft but the band has been on hiatus since 2004, with no official announcement of a break up. Following the reunion of Sunny Day Real Estate in 2009 with all four original members, the future of The Fire Theft remained uncertain. In addition to the self-titled debut, the band also released the Hands On You EP in 2004 on Rykodisc as well. Given 41/2 stars by AllMusic, Johnny Loftus writes, “Enigk and co-writer Goldsmith (whose inventive percussion unifies the album) freely cross Yes with Modest Mouse (“Oceans Apart”), approach Presence-era Led Zeppelin with their instrumentals, and embrace a classic, unironic sense of melody with “Chain” and “Heaven.”” If voted to win, ROG will issue the worldwide debut of The Fire Theft on vinyl, with music spread across a 2LP set with brand new artwork.

The group included Wyatt Daly on guitar, keyboards and vocals, who wrote or co-wrote most of their songs and Jon Pierson on trombone and vocals. They recorded only two albums. The debut was a 1968 self-titled record for Elektra on which the personnel was Day, Pierson, Maury Baker on organ and percussion, Giovanni Papalia on lead guitar, Bill Folwell on trumpet, bass and vocals and Jonathan Raskin on bass, guitar and vocals. Paul Rothchild signed the band to Elektra and produced the self-titled release in LA with additional song writing from Greg Copeland.

    Victoria Williams is an American singer, song writer and musician from Shreveport, Louisiana. In 1986 she worked with then husband Peter Case on his debut album, following a year later with her own debut, Happy Come Home. The album had an accompanying 28 minute documentary done by D.A. Pennebaker. In the early 1990s she often appeared on stage and on record with the band Giant Sand. In 1993 she acted in Gus Van Sant’s Even Cowgirls Get The Blues. Although her debut album, Happy Come Home was released in 1987, she was largely overlooked until artists like Soul Asylum and Pearl Jam recorded her tunes for the 1993 Sweet Relief tribute/benefit CD which helped Victoria pay her medical bills in her battle against multiple sclerosis that was diagnosed that year. Between the years of1994-2000, Victoria recorded 4 albums for Mammoth/Atlantic Records, the last being “Water to Drink,” which was released in 2000. “Water to Drink” was Williams’ first solo album since 1998’s Musings of a Creek Dipper. In 2006, Williams was ranked #89 on Paste Magazine’s list of the Top 100 Living Songwriters. If voted to win, ROG will issue “Water to Drink” on vinyl for the very first time.
