The Vines | Outtathatway
The other night I was up watching Rage’s 25th Anniversary show, when Outtathaway by The Vines came on, and I felt 13 again.
Highly Evolved by The Vines was the first Rock album that I bought, which really catapulted me into the music that I listen to today. When I discovered them, I was totally blown away and Outtathaway was one of the first songs I learnt to play on guitar. I was a teenager trying to find my place in the world, and I was so proud to have pictures of The Vines on my school books, and to convince my friends that they HAD to listen to them. Even though The Vines aren’t really what they were anymore, and even though I only saw them for the first time at the 2011 Sydney Big Day Out, I owe a lot to them, and Highly Evolved holds a special place my music collection.
