Glue...the last Fluid release on either Glitterhouse or Sub Pop. It was later combined with Roadmouth (minus two tracks from Roadmouth) for a Sub Pop CD/cassette release. Glitterhouse copies of the Glue EP were all on black vinyl. The first Sub Pop pressing was on purple vinyl, limited to 1,000 copies. Later pressings were on mint green marble and black vinyl. The prices on all of the above have dropped way down. I have been told by a reliable source (i.e. in the band) that a grey version also exists, but I have never seen one. I have always wondered if he was confusing this with the grey Roadmouth. I will only know for sure if I find a grey Glue.
