"Past, future, present collide": Former Cows/Melvins/Tomahawk bassist Kevin Rutmanis’ new band Hepa/Titus cover the Cows’ “Chow” with the Melvins’ King Buzzo on vocals.
Rough art for an upcoming release! You can see this and a bunch of other Melvins related linocuts at HAZE XXL’s art show at Third Man Records May 30.
More dope on the NIGHT GOAT re-issue project soon!
For anyone who didn’t know, the Night Goat single released on AmRep was a different recording than the one on Houdini.
Melvins collection as of 16/02/14…
Too much stuff to go through it all… I don’t think I realised quite how much stuff I had until I did this. Excluding promos & singles the only Melvins CD I do not have is Alive At The Fucker Club.
I’ve got quite a lot of limited stuff now… 13 CD letterpress box set ltd. to 222, Melvins Vs. Minneapolis first edition signed by Buzz and Dale, Honky letterpress version Ltd. to 66, Endless Residency 4CD set from Austin Ltd. to 50, pretty much most of the vinyl is pretty limited, too… Mostly pressings of 500-1000 or so, but there’s a few where I have rarer colours, which were limited to 100 or something. All the Bride Screamed Murder LPs were limited to 100 each.
Of course, the crown jewel in the collection is the Endless Residency 8LP box set on AmRep (last picture)… Also limited to 100 - mine is number 11 and has skulls screen printed on the blank b-sides, which is especially cool, as only the first few copies had the skulls printed on the records… It’s incredibly beautiful, and totally hand-assembled by Buzz and Haze. I have the Rock Is Hell 8LP box set on black vinyl, too, but that’s in a box somewhere and I can’t be bothered to get it out.
Upcoming Australia & New Zealand tour with Helmet (see tour dates). To commemorate this illustrious pairing there’s gonna be a split 7”. Like old times for both bands, the single is coming out on AmRep with a HAZE XXL cover. Sneak peak…Australia / New Zealand tour plus new 7” with Helmet!
