Velocity Girl

Crazy Town b/w Creepy

Sub Pop SP179 7", released 1992 (U.S.)

Sub Pop SP60/227 7" / SP61/228 12" / SPCD 61/228 CD, released 1992 (Germany)

At this juncture, Sub Pop was mostly pressing single colors of vinyl...except for this one. The initial pressing was on green vinyl. There are LOTS of these out there. It is by far the most common. Then, there are the exists on blue, yellow marble, clear, brown marble (often called "cola", sometimes referred to as purple or pale pink), and white vinyl. The blue, yellow marble, and cola ones show up fairly often. The clear one is a lot rarer. It's not a straight clear color. It is almost a clear gray, and kind of looks like the "clear lilac" mispress of the Jon Spencer single. My clear copy has a little pink in it, which once had me thinking there may be pink copies floating around. I no longer think so. The pink in the clear one may be related to the cola version, which has some pink in it.

Now, we have to talk about the white one. This version is crazy rare. My white copy has a slight yellowish tint to's more of an off-white or eggshell color. I'd say in total, probably 80-90% of all copies out there are on green, and the rest are on the other colors.

The European version is mostly (but not entirely) on green vinyl. There is also a blue vinyl version out there. It is much rarer. Quite scarce. The 12" also contains the song "My Forgotten Favorite".
