SG-027 - 'Filthy' on Amour, Silver Girl Sampler cassette

Oliver Obert and Roland Saum formed Sportsguitar in Lucerne, Switzerland in 1993.

What began with our friend, Azalia Snail, encouraging us to find Sportsguitar a label deal in the US and help them book a tour, grew into a multiyear friendship. Following their own release of Fade/Cliche, they released a single on our friends' label, Derivative, then signed with Sub Pop and Matador domestically. Following their living on our floor for a while during their US tour, we were able to encourage them to release 'Filthy' on one of our cassette compilations.
