Demos - bootleg
This is a bootleg that the Melvins had nothing to do with. These were culled from an early recording circa 1984 making them some of earliest of all Melvins recordings. These songs show a much more hardcore punk edge being faster and more aggresive. Lots of unreleased material on this disc. Released on the Piss Boner imprint. Most of this was later released officially on Mangled Demos from 1983
Pissing in the wind the Melvins old fanclub newsletter talked a bit about these songs saying that they were going to be officially released, this of course took longer than expected to happen. " This little lable called Gasatanka, run by the infamous Pat Fear, is going to be releasing a CD of the Melvins first line-up, with Buzzo and Mike Dillard, the original drummer, and Matt Lukin, of Mudhoney fame, called Mangled Demos From 1983. Look for it in your local underground record store. Good luck finding it."
Songs with an asterisk by them are with Mike Dillard on drums.
