The album was also licensed to and released by the German label Glitterhouse. They toured for the next two years in support of the album. In 1988, they released the album Clear Black Paper on Sub Pop. They were the first non-Seattle band to sign to the record label. According to Mark Arm, Glitterhouse and Sub Pop had formed an agreement. Glitterhouse wanted to release a Green River record in Germany, and the labels did a swap: Green River for the Fluid. But Clear Black Paper doesn't convey a whole lot of original feeling with its plain lyrical content and dry-bones structure. Improved, but still bare. Fluid Clear Black Paper. Out of print. Release Date May 1, 1988. Clear Black Paper is a music album by The Fluid released in 1988. Wednesday, October 10, 2007. The Fluid - Clear Black Paper LP & Freak Magnet EP 198889. By 1991, when I was a junior in high school, I was completely and utterly immersed in the Sub PopSeattlegrungeindie axis, and at the time it seemed like there was no turning back. One unexplored name was a Denver band called The Fluid, spearheaded by John Robinson, a veritable born punk rocker. I took a gamble on a cassette containing their two Sub Pop records, Roadmouth and the quickly followed-up, Glue EP. It was a wager that paid off colossally. The one Fluid album I dont own is their debut, Punch N Judy on the Denver based Rayon Records imprint.
