From The Nursery, artist/writer Bob Nickas' new label has just released a new Melvins 12" EP(as far as I know the label has no website). -  "A limited edition three-track 12-inch EP from MELVINS featuring a long version of “Dies Iraea” and a remix of “It Tastes Better Than The Truth” on the A-side (performed by the line-up of KING BUZZO, DALE CROVER, JARED WARREN and COADY WILLIS in 2008), and a 9-minute version of The Wipers’ “Youth of America” on the flip (featuring Buzz, Dale and KEVIN RUTMANIS, recorded by TIM GREEN at Louder in 2000). None of these tracks have appeared on vinyl prior. Limited to 2,000 copies (with 1,500 for distribution) pressed on silver/gray vinyl, with artwork by STEVEN PARRINO. Named “Record of the Month” in the February, 2010 issue of Vice Magazine."  Best place to get it right now is Midheaven.
