SP168 Seaweed

Measure b/w Turnout

Sub Pop SP168 7", released October 1992 (U.S.)

Sub Pop Europe SP57/219 12" / SPCD 57/219 CDS (Germany)

The second Sub Pop single from Seaweed. Seaweed was peaking at this point, putting out some consistently solid music. This single was available on orange vinyl (most common) and clear vinyl (slightly less common). Sub Pop says the first 2,000 were on orange. However, there were two distinct orange versions - one is the standard flat orange that you will commonly see for sale. The next was a much lighter, marbled orange version with some pink streaks in it. Then, there was the pink marble/salmon version. This one is a very rare variant. It looks somewhat like the orange one, but is definitely a distinct pink marble color. And I want one. Let me know if you have one available...
