SP263 Pond

Moth b/w You Don't Quite Get It Do You But You're Thinking Hard

Sub Pop SP263 7", released April 1994 (U.S.)

The A side of this one is one of my all-time favorites to be released on the Sub Pop label. Definitely the best song Pond ever wrote. B-side is forgettable, but not bad. Black vinyl. Mostly.

There was also a blue marble vinyl version of the Moth single that was pressed. Most of these were packaged with the UK version of The Practice of Joy Before Death LP. 1,000 of them, to be precise. However, more of them are out there, as many have been circulated independent of the album. The blue ones represent a completely separate pressing. The U.S. one had a large center hole and classic yellow Sub Pop labels. The blue one had a small hole and the later black Sub Pop labels. The matrix codes were also different. The color of the blue one varied quite a bit - some were green.
