In October of 2010, The Vaccines played the show that would ultimately dictate the next few months of their career. As 200 eager fans packed inside the London venue Flowerpot, outside 200 more fans were being turned away. Earlier that summer the band had released their first track "If You Wanna," a track that The Independent called "three minutes of vintage, brash, no-messing, rock'n'roll." This track and the power packed, 80-second track "Wreckin Bar (Ra Ra Ra)," in combination with the infamous Flowerpot gig would catapult the band into becoming 2011's most exciting new act according to NME, MTV, BBC Radio 1, Elle, Vogue, Spin Magazine and many more!
In November, The Vaccines were invited to play on Jools Holland where they performed three tracks, a privilege not often given to such new bands. Additionally, the band was booked on the show before having released a single record- an honor never granted before!
Spin Magazine raved of the bands recent live debut: "The Vaccines' first American show was an audition for the job of world's biggest band of right now, and after blasting through 12 doses of anthemic, cocksure rock'n'roll in barely 30 minutes flat, they became leading candidates for the position.
The Vaccines' full length debut, What Did You Expect From The Vaccines?, is 37 minutes of "Lo-fi, heart-grabbing rock 'n' roll" exclaims Q Magazine. NME raves that the record is a mix of "pop-punk, chillwave and classic good-time pop'n'roll." The Fly explains that the bands "glimmering, lo-fi punk-pop laced with dreamy summertime hamonise," will solidify that, "The Vaccines are the band to watch in 2011!"

I'm still really glad to own it, but just thought some may want to know this before dishing out $30+
TL;DR the vinyl version has a dumb design. This is a great album.
melodic hooks. It may not be particularly original, but it satisfies the need for the pop fix with its
straightforward blend of obvious influences. Critics are calling it "fake indie" & "lacking sub-
stance", but...well, really "What Did You Expect From the Vaccines"? It's fun, simple & addictive.
I may not be listening to it two years from now, but it fills the moment nicely. Recalls the Strokes,
Jesus & Mary Chain, the Smiths, Ramones, Best Coast, Arctic Monkeys, Surfer Blood, Beatles,
The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart.

"Wreckin' Bar" is a nice anthemic punk song.Read more
