I have some Veruca Salt from the vinyl archive today. Nice to see that this band got back together in 2014. But let’s go back to 1994 when they released their debut record, American Thighs. It was an immediate hit thanks mainly to the first single, which was (and remains) insanely catchy.
Check this out: The album was first released as an indie record through Minty Fresh, a label from Veruca Salt’s hometown of Chicago. But as soon as the people at DGC heard this single, they grabbed the album and six weeks later—six weeks—it got a major label release. It’s Veruca Salt and “Seether.”
