Dale Crover solo 7”. Joined by Lou Barlow and Kevin Rutmanis.
For that that don’t know - Dale played drums on Lou Barlow’s Goodnight Unknown album, and helps him write the drum parts for the songs he writes for Dinosaur Jr. They both also appeared on the Dumb Numbers album.
Kevin Rutmanis was of course a Melvin from around 1999-2005.
