Once upon a time I was a kid who did nothing but go to shows and buy vinyl at them with the hard earned money that I made as a – wait for it – grocery store bagger. All of that sentence is completely (and unfortunately) true. Grocery store bagging = the worst job ever (especially when elderly women ask you to bag everything double and separately).
I don’t buy nearly as much vinyl now as I did then- which is weird because I planned on buying lots of it once I got older.
I guess I’ve not been buying much as of late because I’ve just become too boring (i.e. computer savvy, disinterested, or a combination, but probably because I’m still pretty broke). Either way one of the best things about buying 7″ singles were the b-sides.
The following are two b-sides from two 7″ singles (well really, one single, two different 7″) that I got at a Cribs show at The Theater of Living Arts in PA when I was a kid (er, 5 years ago).
There are two different colored versions of the 7″, each with a different b-side. Think there’s a red version too but I don’t have it.
B-side from the yellow version:
It Happened So Fast
B-side from the blue version (best title ever):
Happy Is Just A State Of Mind & A State Of Mind Is Just Electrical Impulses
Off we go.
