I dig music
Jim Spellman & Sarah Shannon - “Sleep With Your Friends”
This is an acoustic demo from Jim Spellman and Sarah Shannon, both ex-Velocity Girl. I could tell you how I acquired it, but then I’d have to shoot you (actually Jim sent me a CD of demos and rare VG-related shit).
This tune eventually morphed into a track titled “#1 Song” by Jim’s next band, Julie Ocean, a criminally underrated and overlooked indie pop band with a bunch of DC indie vets (ie The Saturday People, Glo-worm, Velocity Girl, etc)
Primal Scream - “Velocity Girl”
I still think Bobby Gillespie and company were way cooler in the band’s early days. This song is so great, it makes me wish that I hadn’t heard their other material which is 80% crap.
