velocity girl (2019 reissue)
In just 82 seconds, Primal Scream’s ‘Velocity Girl’ became a landmark moment in the nascent indie scene and ignited a band who would become a pivotal part of British music culture.
First released as the b-side to their second single ‘Crystal Crescent’ in 1986, ‘Velocity Girl’ reached a wider audience as the opening track on NME’s highly influential ‘C86’ compilation. Despite the track’s renown, Primal Scream have never reissued ‘Velocity Girl’ or included it on any retrospective albums… until now.
