Trevor Jones: I heard a lot of classic rock records growing up. Bad Company, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Blue Oyster Cult, Frank Marino & Mahogany Rush, Styx, etc. I started using the record player myself when I was about 10 years old. My dad mentioned something about how ‘I Am The Walrus’ had nutty lyrics so I went to investigate his vinyl copy of the blue ‘best of The Beatles 1967-1970,’ reading the lyrics to the song before listening to it. They make more sense once you hear the music. I was already really into rock and roll but getting into records brought it to a new level for all of the usual reasons: the sound, the historical document-seeming-ness, the massiveness. I started getting my own and requesting them at gift-receiving situations(which hasn’t stopped). The first color vinyl I obtained was Badfinger’s Day After Day for Christmas when I was 11. It’s transparent light green. I was surprised and stoked something so cool existed. Having an album come out on vinyl is already insane to me, let alone a see-through-y color-y one, made with awesome dudes that I love creating music with. Thank you Joey McDonald at Record City in Las Vegas, thank you Chris Topham at Plane Groovy, thank you (and good judgement!) everyone and anyone that listens to our records.
Chris Montijo: I think it's awesome. My parents listened to a lot of Pink Floyd, UFO, Ozzy, Thin Lizzy, Ted Nugent, Jeff Beck on records when I was growing up and I enjoyed that. I started jamming on the drums with my family when I was two years old playing a lot of that music. Getting a record out with what has become family, our band, on vinyl now is super exciting. It's a new journey for us and our music.

Joe Lawless: I found myself interested in records when I was very young. The first piece of vinyl I remember seeing around the house was the “Hey Jude” single with the Apple imprint, and I was fascinated by it before I was even old enough to get it on the turntable.

Years passed by and I became an avid collector (and listener!) from my high school years and into college, tracking down rare import albums that would sometimes take months to arrive. As I’ve moved around the country, I’ve parted ways with most of my albums, but have managed to hold onto a few handfuls that I share with enthusiasts.

And now, I’m very proud to be part of Trevor and The Joneses and to share our sound on this big, classic format through Plane Groovy.
