TIMELINE

  • The StrokesThe Strokes consists of Julian Casablancas on vocals, Nikolai Fraiture on bass, Nick Valensi and Albert Hammond, Jr. on guitar, and Fabrizio Moretti on drums. The band formed in 1998 in New York City after Casablancas, Valensi, and Moretti began playing together while at a private school in Manhattan. Fraiture had been a friend of Casablancas, and Hammond had met Casablancas while attending a boarding school in Switzerland. The band members came from affluent families - Casablancas is the son of modeling agent John Casablancas, and Hammond's father was a well known songwriter of the 70's. The Strokes released the EP The Modern Age before signing with a major record label in 2001.

2001....

  • The Strokes released the EP The Modern Age with 3 tracks ("The Modern Age," "Last Nite," and "Barely Legal) which were later included on their debut LP.
  • The Strokes - 'Is This It'October 9: The Strokes released their debut LP Is This It in the US (available for download at iTunes and Amazon-mp3). The LP had been released earlier in the year overseas and hit the Top 10 in Australia, Norway, Sweden, and the UK. Rolling Stone described the LP as "...the stuff of which legends are made. Recorded in a sub-basement studio off Avenue A in Manhattan, where the air was blue with cigarette smoke and three pictures from a Victoria's Secret catalog were taped to a cabinet for something like inspiration, the Strokes' debut album is pure New York rock & roll: all gray-pavement aggression wrapped in black-leather cool." When Is This It was released in the US, new cover art replaced a more racy cover and the track "New York City Cops" was replaced with "When It Started" in light of the recent September 11th terrorist attacks.
