Douglas Hart blends a simply shot, rather Warholesque performance by Bobby Gillespie with evocative archive of Warhol's original superstar and muse Edie Sedgwick, for this remastered version of Velocity Girl.

The song was originally released in 1986, as the B side of Primal Scream's first single. It was the first track on the NME's legendary C86 cassette release, and it is a mere 82 seconds long.

It's brief but intense, like the life of Edie.
