Video of The Day | Throwback Thursday Edition: Velocity Girl

Share this post

Taken from Velocity Girl’s 1994 Simpatico, “Sorry Again” showcased the band’s well crafted songwriting sensibilities.  For their second album , the DC indie -rock outfit enlisted John Porter, best known for his work with The Smiths, to produce.  The band had been touring for sometime by the time they recorded with Porter and it showed. The songs came out much tighter than previous material and Sarah Shannon’s vocal’s were stronger and more confident. This 2:49 of pop goodness is a perfect tonic. Repeat and enjoy.

Pat Ferrise grew up loving ”the punk rock” and “new wave.” His years at one of the nation’s top college radio stations ultimately led him to a 15-year run as music director of alternative music icon WHFS Washington/Baltimore. Rolling Stone magazine named him of the most influential programmers of the 90s. He’s recorded two albums under the moniker Trampoline for the now defunct SpinArt label. He lives in Baltimore and takes no credit for writing this bio.
