Bloomington Indiana 1995-7. After the 1994 split of Bloomington, Indiana's Antenna, former Blake Babies guitarist John Strohm formed Velo-Deluxe with Go Man Go bassist Kenny Childers and Marmalade drummer Mitch Harris, then only a 19-year-old freshman at Indiana University. Strohm already had an entire album's worth of songs ready, but wanted to work them into a full band setting. After months of practicing and recording a rough demo, the band entered Echo Park Studio in Bloomington in the late spring of 1994 to record Superelastic with producer/engineer Anjali Dutt (Swervedriver, Oasis, My Bloody Valentine).
The album was released on Mammoth Records in the fall of that year, and European tours with Dodgy, Drugstore, Del Amitri and Out Of My Hair followed.
