I wonder if Archie and those guys (and gal) in Velocity Girl would have copped to admitting that this track sounded a bit like Curve? In 1993, Curve were actually a band worth emulating. A bit.
Anyway, this early mix of a subsequent single (a split with Tsunami) is pretty damn good. Frankly, I like this almost as much as anything on Copacetic (1993).
The rush of sugary noise recalls MBV -- of course! -- and Pale Saints, as someone else already noted.
