|Status:||SIGN UP FOR RESTOCK NOTICE|
On February 17, 1995, three skater kids from the suburbs of San Diego released an album only on cassette, which made waves on their local scene but barely registered elsewhere. Within five years, the trio, composed of guitarist Tom DeLonge, bassist Mark Hoppus, and drummer Scott Raynor, were one of the biggest punk bands in the world, renowned for their world tours, fart gags and infectious riffs. Recorded in just three days, Cheshire Cat was the album that started Blink-182 on the path to stardom.
The album was produced over a period of three days at Westbeach, as the band lacked money for additional days of recording. The record was originally released with the band's name as Blink, until an Irish techno band of the same name threatened legal action, after which the band appended "-182" to the end of their name.
The album is forty-five minutes of pure fun, juvenile skate punk, led by the singles "M+M's" and "Wasting Time".
Heavyweight vinyl produced by Geffen Records in 2016. Gatefold sleeve.
