Welcome to #TBT Mixtape, Billboard's new series showcasing artists' very own throwback-themed playlists, exclusive to Billboard's Spotify account. The curated set features the artists' favorite tracks from their youth and childhood.
This week's spin comes from Letters To Cleo. The iconic '90s rockers are prepping the first-ever vinyl pressing of their three early LPs Aurora Gory Alice, Wholesale Meats And Fish and Go!, set to arrive next month. To support the release, the group will return to Boston and the club that launched their career, The Paradise, to perform each of the albums in full for a run of shows (Nov. 16-18), supported by fellow Boston indie rockers the Blake Babies (Juliana Hatfield, John Strohm, Freda Love).
The group -- founded in 1990 by guitarist Greg Mckenna and singer Kay Hanley in Boston -- became a mainstay of '90’s and '00's pop culture, and earned their mainstream breakthrough when four tracks -- including hits "Cruel To Be Kind" and "I Want You To Want Me" -- featured on the soundtrack of cult classic 10 Things I Hate About You, with the band also appearing in the film.
