SP81 Dwarves


Drug Store/Detention Girl b/w Astro Boy/Motherfucker

Sub Pop SP81 7", released October 1990 (U.S.)

Infamous sleeve...another picture from the Blood, Guts & Pussy photo shoot. This single was mostly on black vinyl. The first 2500 came with a pin that said, "Fuck you up and get high." A lot of the pins have been lost in time, so one with the pin can be difficult to track down. There are a few copies in circulation on purple marble vinyl. It is findable, but can be a little tough. The early copies had foldover poster sleeves (see above) with singles club forms attached. The later ones did not.
