interesting! curious about how the final cover will look like.
if I ever buy one of the fancy art edition reissues then this one.
the single most important melvins album for me... and the best!

i wish this project brings also a reprint of the honky amrep shirt.

Haze said more Honky's will be pressed than normal. I'm guessing a run of 500-800.

Reissue not coming in a black sleeve is a crime.
Yeah I know it's blackened in part, but it's not the same.
Should have taken black cardstock as a base... or let that tape cover the whole canvas.
Either way, that mishmash of cardboard, white and black is a huge mess.
Probably would be better to let Mackie handle this one. (if skulls can be avoided this time).

Those are one off sleeves for the test Pressings. Sometimes they look nothing like the normal sleeve, so I’m anxious to see what it’s gonna turn out like.

How about white?
White on white looks interesting and at least it's not a messy mix of black and white and ripped pieces, but the edges are stil unpainted.
And it loses the irony of having an album named Honky have a black cover (with black-on-black drawing as well).
The criminal portraits are totally unnecessary, unrelated and I don't like their addition.
Black on black version of this without the portraits and with the sleeve painted completely would have been fine.

Air breather is listed as not being split up on sides A and B on the original LP either, It might be split, it just wouldn't fit otherwise unless they split the Album into a double LP playing at 45RPM.
Title: Re: Honky vinyl re-release
Post by: buddy holiday on January 26, 2019, 01:08:38 AM
the A-side label of the original indicates that 'air breather' is splitted. all songs are anyways listed on the A-side label only.

I have the 1997 pressing, they split it in half. The repress label shows laughing and how after pitfalls, so assuming they put air complete on side 2, which is a good choice imo

See that hole?
Title: Re: Honky vinyl re-release
Post by: buddy holiday on January 28, 2019, 04:58:41 AM
the label is probably my very personal interpretation of the splitted "air breather"...
regardless hole... there would have been enough space to put it on one line.
further the hole is crucial to flip the record and hence splitting a track  :lol:

it seems though as the new pressing has it full on side b and "laughing with..." and "how..." on side a, which of course ruins everything.

Here’s the scoop on Melvins Honky reissue. This Sunday at noon (Feb. 3) we’ll cut loose with the first of the fancy silk screened edition (‘white on white’ Edition of 200) and a small batch of numbered sets. The following Sunday we’ll be releasing the other 3 editions.
Cheapie CD version will get cut loose this Sunday as well! There will be a more affordable factory sleeve edition in 4-8 weeks so if that’s your cuppa just skip these editions.

 Not true. "This Machine Kills Artists" was released on 10" vinyl via AmRep first, then standard 12" release through Ipecac, and wasn't PAT the same deal? I doubt Ipecac says Melvins can't touch that album and have AmRep reissue a totally different version.

 I just dusted off the H.A.T. 45s the other week, and they've been in rotation. I too would love to see a standard 12" double gatefold deluxe version of H.A.T. Probably could do the album in order as sides 1-2-3, and throw the covers on side 4. If anything had to be chopped off, make it the Foaming fast version. Not sure what they were thinking with that. Interesting, but the least essential b-side of the bunch.

Couldn't agree more. H.A.T. would be #1 for me as far as in need of a deluxe vinyl reissue.

Then "The Bootlicker" because I never grabbed the Trilogy on vinyl and it now costs a small fortune..

 I'm curious too. What happened to the original tapes, or do they not even bother, because they know fans will buy it regardless? Pretty silly to spend $50 on an album that's an exact dupe of the CD. But we know, with Melvins & AmRep it's all about the ltd edition, and the rarity of the handmade sleeves & swirly looking vinyl. I have an original CD, bought new over 15 yrs ago, I'm good w/ that.

I'm going to go ahead and say the original pressing wasn't spectacular to begin, because it's a longer cut...If I get a chance to get the new LP I'll compare, it might be like lifting a veil off the original pressing.

The CD and Vinyl were very different sounding for sure.

Slightly off topic, but does anyone know what the last Melvins album recorded to tape was? I would guess maybe POTRE was the first Melvins album recorded purely digital w/ protool setup?

definitely 3 Men & A Baby but that's cheating. I have an interview on (A)SA clipped out and they talk about using 31 tracks on protools. Guitar/ lead guitar/ bass/ 4 vocals/ the rest are individual pieces of both drum kits.

Colossus Of Destiny? If that counts.

The first two parts of the trilogy are probably tape, recorded at Tim Green’s studio. So it’s either that or HAT is my guess.  I had a short correspondence with Toshi around the time of The Monkee’s Uncle and I vaguely remember him mentioning tape and the small track count on HAT.  I’m almost sure I haven’t formed an incorrect memory around that.  :lol:

They should release a 'golden' version available to people that buy all eight versions.

Hey, that super-elaborate Melvins fan video game fell through, but there's an idea for a mod or something at least...

Ordered a white copy. $35 aint bad, couldn't resist. I know I knocked this re-release seeing it's mastered from the CD, but it's cool to have & will sound good, plus I like the new artwork. This was sorely missing from my collection.

so it's mastered from the CD master? That wouldn't sound bad at all.

For some reason, I haven't listened to Honky before... I need this album now. It's one of the weirdest releases in the Melvin's discography.

I was born in the 90's and I haven't experienced Honky before... I need this album now like I need a woman to love. It's *** the *** greatest releases in the Melvin's discography.

Fixed.  :ohsnap:

(totally Joshin' you of course.)

Seriously though, How is it weird? like compared to Prick?

The King Buzzo Solo EP Is weird IMO...mostly because it's short.

You have one more shot at getting it this Sunday at noon central time at amphetamine reptile records. It was 35 bucks plus shipping. Haze only pressed 250 of each variant so it will sell out, but if you are on it at noon you should have no problem getting a copy. I noticed these took a cpl hours to sell out instead of them being gone before you can even check out.

how soon?  :o
HAZE:
Here’s the scoop on Melvins Honky reissue. This Sunday at noon (Feb. 3) we’ll cut loose with the first of the fancy silk screened edition (‘white on white’ Edition of 200) and a small batch of numbered sets. The following Sunday we’ll be releasing the other 3 editions.
Cheapie CD version will get cut loose this Sunday as well! There will be a more affordable factory sleeve edition in 4-8 weeks so if that’s your cuppa just skip these editions.
Factory edition is still a reality? Anyone hear anything different?  :o

I've got the Sorry in Pig Minor record and 3 cd's. I had the Honky record in my cart at first as well but with 1 record less it saved me a total of 34 dollars shipping costs. I might as well just get the black version of Honky when they play here in the summer.

I might as well just miss out on the black version of Honky when they play here in the summer and it sells out by the time I get to the front of the merch line.
