science fiction. Screen idols and goddesses, the celluloid pantheon... immortality
guaranteed... Music created for imaginary films for your mind. Legend, iconic, over

heroines with edge... "Vitesse" built for speed, streamlined structure, fast and
furious... propulsion, eyeliner eyes... like a beam of headlights.

GLAM    004     VELVET CRUSH : IN THE PRESENCE OF GREATNESS             LP      10.2018
                (Note : LP , turquoise vinyl)

I was a bit of a Ric Menck, Paulie Chastain fan boy back in the early 90's. I loved
their twee pop bands Choo Choo Train, and the Springfields (amongst others). Velvet
Crush was the moment when they stopped messing about in flowerbeds and decided to
rock. Therefore my younger self was a bit horrified but if you like Big Star and
Teenage Fanclub there's much to enjoy here.
