Give A Follow ...

Feb 10, 2015 - 01:30 AM CST

If you have instagram and are a LTJ vinyl junkie, you should give a follow to @LTJVINYLOGRAPHY - TAke a read of the interview I did with Jorge, the man behind the site.

A talk with the
man behind the

ever expanding

Less Than Jake

VINYLOGRAPHY.

- Give me some background to being a LTJ fan
Being an LTJ fan is rewarding. You know when you go to shows you're always going to get a high octane, energetic show with crazy banter. There is always a great mix in the setlist that everyone can get in to. And if you're at a show I think what a lot of fans discover is that LTJ are very down to earth, cool guys. It's always been my experience that it's not hard to run into the band hanging out before or after the show. They take the time hang out with fans. Their music always feels personal and real. Lyrically they cover a lot of personal content that you don't really see a lot of of other bands covering which makes it easy for fans to relate to. And dear god all the collector goodies, whether it's vinyl or other crazy memorabia like beer or life jackets or Evolution Kid toys, there is something for everyone. My old screenname from the LTJack forums and the Capitol boards was "Evolution Kid" haha.

- Why the instagram vinylography?

The Instagram Vinylography came about because I wanted a cool way to be able to share the collection with other megafans and collector nerds. I had done a couple of those "record a day" instagram things that would last a month where you post a blue record one day and a dollar find the next etc. I kept seeing those pop up and thought it would be really cool for there to be something dedicated to LTJ and the insane amount of vinyl that has been released over the years.

- Favorite piece of LTJ vinyl?

My favorite definitely has to be the Anthem 7" set. That's the album that truly hooked me. I'd heard you guys on a Tony Hawks videogame while I was visiting relatives for Christmas one year. Turns out my cousin happened to be a big fan of the band and showed me some more music and some studio update videos on LTJ's website at the time. This was a few months before Anthem released. Turns out the album was being released on my birthday, so I begged my parents to order the deluxe CD for me and that pretty much sealed it. Then one of the first LTJ shows I went to to, either at the Masquerade or the 99x Upstart fest, I picked up the Anthem set and the Clear Pezcore Picture disc. The attention to detail on that Anthem set was truly impressive. I thought it was such a cool idea having different artists of all styles doing their own take on what the art can be for each song. Those records are where it all started for me.

- Do you have any chase LTJ records?

Holy Grail record for me is definitely the Pie Tin set. I've seen a couple pop up recently but can't pull the trigger with how expensive they always go for. A close second is actually the Anthem set from before. A few years after getting it, I became a broke college kid and let it go for not very much and now can't find it again without it being triple what I paid in the first place from the band haha.

- I see the the LTJ community of fans is starting to help fill in the gaps that are in your personal collection.

Absolutely! It's been an awesome response from the community. From day one people have offered to chip in and help with anything they can. Which is awesome. I have a little over half of all the crazy variants and releases etc, so having other people who are also huge collector nerds willing to chip in is incredible. So I got everything organized and made a google doc so every one can see whats missing, what they can help with etc.

- What is your contact info for fans wanting to help curate the complete vinylography?
