Melvins will be touring the U.S. with Unsane this Spring. Amrep is also putting together a tour 7" with the two bands covering each other. No word yet on how many will be pressed, check the Amrep bored for more details. Tour dates are below...
Amrep will also be doing a series of 12" records. The 13 record Sugar Daddy Splits series is the Melvins tracks from their Ipecac "Sugar Daddy" CD combined with bands they love from past, present, and future. Okay, maybe not future. Starting it off, COWS and the U-MEN!!! Pressing sizes will be a lot larger than recent projects, and way more affordable. But still slick as %$#@ Let the stupid questions that would've already been answered had some one bothered to read this far - BEGIN!
One song per side, 33 1/3 rpm 180 grain Splatter vinyl.
Silk screened print.
Price not yet set (likely in the $20ish range)
Release date - not yet set. 5-7 weeks estimated.
We can't list all the tracks now, but some are previously released material by defunct bands, and some new exclusive material from current bands. Other bands confirmed so far: Off, Fucked Up, Mudhoney, Butthole Surfers, Tweak Bird
Decibel Magazine did a Q&A with Buzz and Dale. "I’m often surprised by why people expect us to do something normal they shouldn’t. There are lots of bands who are willing to do all kinds of normal things; people should not look to us to do that." - Buzz
Melvins were featured and interviewed for the 'Grunge' episode of VH1's Metal Evolution series. You may not be able to watch it on VH1's site if you're outside of civilization.
The long-lived Melvins-L AOL Listserv group that was shut down when AOL got rid of the service has arisen like the proverbial phoenix at groups.google.com/group/melvins-l so join up if you're interested.
