Seaweed - Inside 7"

It's Seaweed Friday again, and this time I've got a really old 7" of theirs. Popular consensus on the internet is that this 7" came out in 1989. However, on the liner notes it says that the songs were recorded in November of '89, so I find it difficult to believe that a small indie in the late 80s would be able to get these records back from a pressing plant before Christmas. I would wager this actually came out in 1990.

Regardless, this 7" shows the band as true youngsters. You can see their style starting to take shape, but there's a really raw, kind of exciting vibe that runs throughout. It's certainly not as poppy as the band would later become, but there are some good songs here.
