Stuck to the bottom left corner of this week’s NME is your free CD, ‘Home Is Where The Start Is (Home Demos 2009-2012)’ by The Vaccines. This little gem includes 10 Vaccines demos, and right now we’ve got a preview of ‘If You Wanna’, recorded in The Grove rehearsal space and Justin Young’s own bedroom in London, May 2009. Here’s what Justin has to say about the track:
This is one of four demos we did in the summer of 2009 – we did this, ‘Wetsuit’, ‘California’ and ‘Caroline’. They set the precedent for our demoing process. I decided to send it to three friends only but they eventually made their way to our manager. So this is where it all started.
Pick up the new issue on Wednesday (1 May) to hear all the songs and read the stories behind them – in the meantime, here’s ‘If You Wanna’.
