from Brian Walsby's myspace page: "Almost twenty years ago, Dale taped this for me and I have listened to it ever since. Frankly, I am surprised that they have never unearthed this. It is among my very favorite Melvins recordings. Recorded shortly after the release of "Gluey Porch Treatments", this homemade four track won't be confused with "Sergeant Pepper" in terms of production values (although we have boosted the levels somewhat), but fucking A, the songs and the performance more then makes up for that. It was also the last thing the band recorded with original bass player Matt Lukin, a fitting end to the band's first album lineup... Some of these then new songs ended up on "Ozma". I actually prefer these versions. Other songs were lost in the shuffle but are as good as anything the band has put out. As for the band themselves, Dale is on fire on all of these tracks. Buzz's vocals have never been any more twisted, sneering or evil. I am pleased as punch that these guys have let me release this material in conjunction with my new book. Me and Charles are both really happy about this. Obviously this will sell my book a lot easier then the previous two. Sadly, the band's version of a Kiss song from which the title of the demos have been taken didn't make the cut, as a abrupt tape drop in assured that said fact. Besides, Gene Simmons might get pissed off. I don't need that trouble."
This is being released by Bifocal Media on Oct. 9th 2007. It is available for pre-order now.
