From Amrep: "Well, well. It looks like we've got some new material here that we're pretty excited about. (The) Melvins have a new 4-track album & what's this, Mudhoney is joining them too? Artwork by HAZE XXL with none other than Mr. Hughes in the prime of his life. No doubt living the life in the Desert Inn, trying to think of a movie better than Ice Station Zebra. Bet you're now trying to think of one too. Guess what buster, you can't! That thing is a @*%&#-ing masterpiece! And say what you will about Howard, but he was saving his urine in jars WAY before it was cool."
- My War
- Walking Crazy
- Ten Minute Visitation
- Drive Back
Dale put out Piso Mojado, a really cool lathe cut recorded on Joyful Noise recordings, it sold out in a very short period of time to their V.I.P. members, but they put up a trailer detailing the release. "The custom lathe-cut design features four distinct spindle-holes, and five corresponding songs. Each record is hand-made, and extremely limited."
Buzz did a video chat with Chris Enriquez of Spotlights for Revolver Mag and Saint Vitus Bar. It's worth a watch, he mentions that along with the new Mudhoney collab, they also have a collaboration with Helms Alee in the works, and a new Melvins 1983 release. He also said that AmRep will be releasing a vinyl of all the B-sides from the Hostile Ambient Takeover 7"s sometime soon.
