The polls have closed and the results have been verified by an independent third party: EVERYBODY LOVES SAUSAGES!!! To prove it the Melvins released their new covers album TODAY! Swing on down to your local record butcher to pick up a copy. SPIN has the entire album up for streaming, and Buzz has provided written commentary alongside each track. To add to the fun, the Melvins have also announced the tour dates for their 30th Anniversary Extravaganza Tour, check them out below. One of the tracks on the album is Romance by Tales of Terror and was recorded with the Melvins Lite lineup, here's what Buzz had to say about it: "I saw Tales of Terror a bunch of times in the early '80s, before they had actually put out that album [1984's Tales of Terror]. So I was a converted fan before they recorded anything. And once I got that record, I just thought it was great. As it turns out, they only printed 5000 LP's. It's never come out on fuckin' CD. That's insane. To me, that's one of the best records to ever come out of California. It's fucking amazing. And nobody cares. Unbelievable. Their whole thing is completely tragic. The band ended because one of the guitar players got beaten to death in Sacramento. And then the bass player, years later, overdosed on methadone, I think. And I think the singer was so messed up on drugs that now he has to live in an assisted living place. That's rock and roll. That's it, right in a nutshell. "Played with needles just a little too much." There it is. For one shining moment, these guys had it together, and they did it, and it's amazing."
