Candy Machine - My Old Man/Jawbox - Footbinder b/w Geek - Hemingway Shotgun/Velocity Girl - What You Say

Simple Machines SMR 04, released 1991

Simple Machines did this series of compilation 7"s named after...well, simple machines...this was the 4th in the series, and contained the Velocity Girl song "What You Say." The first pressing was of 1500 on what they called see-through maroon vinyl.  It looks black unless you hold it up to the light, and then it looks brown...see pics below. I don't know if it was later re-pressed or not, but these days, it is easy to find.  There is a sleeve variation I have run across. Most of the copies I have seen have a green accent color, but I have also encountered versions with blue accented sleeves.
