Mountain Goats 7"

A long long time ago a record label called Sub Pop started what they called a Singles Club. No this wasn't for eligible bachelors and bachelorettes to mix and mingle, but for bands to release a 7" with exclusive material. Many bands participate including Nirvana, Afghan Whigs, Fugazi, Dwarves, Reverend Horton Heat, Ween, Jesus and Mary Chain, Lou Barlow, Modest Mouse, etc etc etc

Well on of the bands that contributed to the singles club and has, since then, become one of the biggest indie unerdogs were The Mountain Goats. Their untitled single was pressed on "gorgeous half-purple/half-marbled mustard" vinyl. Mm delicious. Well here it is in a more tangible form.
