No I'm kidding, but man...He's a guy I'd love to take some Lino Cut Lessons from, excepting he may or might turn me into a Lino cut if I screw around too much.


Keep up the good work boys.

hmmm, it could be. On the other hand, when I saw the lino cut I had the strange feeling that it could be one of those really special releases that are only going to exist on vinyl with no cheap 5$ CD considered, which obviously sucks.

I'll copy this verbatim (that's your actual Latin) from AmRep's Facebook:

(https://i.ibb.co/JQ7Pdy7/melredd.jpg)

On Sunday Sept 1 (noon central) we’ll be cutting loose with the online edition of the Melvins/Redd Kross Tour 10”. Of the 500 made, 400 are hitting the road for this extensive tour. This edition of 100 sports a day-glo red AND glow in the dark sleeve colors to create an accurate portrayal of nuked and burning apocalyptic Babylon...er um...Los Angeles, with pus and blood swirl colored vinyl as a bonus. A treasure trove of death and destruction every home needs. This edition comes with its very own Melvins Donuts sticker to add to the horror. No it’s not a double 10”, we just showed the A and B sides for effect with what the sleeve looks like unfolded.

The HAZE XXL glow in the dark, signed edition of 40, silk screened tour prints will launch at the same. No we can’t combine shipping unless you want us to roll your 10” into a poster tube, which can be done for a $5 upcharge.

the online version on sunday was $60.
they have 400 on tour for (I guess) around 50 shows... so it will be interesting to see if there are 8 freaks per show that buy one... besides the money they spend for the ticket, food and drinks.
if not, then the 8 freaks on here will get another shot to buy the other versions online  :D

not sure how many they still have left from sabbath / bangers, but so far they always sold-out their limited stuff sooner or later.

Not sure about bangers, but I believe they pressed a new color version for the sabbath ep. If I can find a picture, I'll post it.

Record prices/edition sizes will keep increasing as long as there's a market.

ah exactly that sabbath version is beautiful.

i have absolutely no issue with the prices... myself being a melvins feak these items have a different value to me than maybe to other melvins fans... I always try to pick one up and am happy with one version per release. sitting in switzerland and considering that the band never brings decent stuff to europe when on tour, it's great that amrep actually makes an online selling with proper announcement before. all you need is time, a little planning and a bit of luck to be quick enough to get one.

Heard Haze on a podcast talking about people complaining about the prices of this kind of stuff. I’m paraphrasing but he basically said that normally just a print would cost that much and you’re getting a record to top it off. These are considered boutique items and if you want it you’re gonna pay for it.  Not to mention these aren’t normal printed sleeves, they are screen printed if I’m correct. As he said in the Melvins documentary, these are boutique items for fans who are willing to pay that much.

I get all that but to me this is taking the piss it's just gouging the fuck out of their diehard fans. This kind of shit wouldn't fly over here if people heard that a band was slapping a few cover songs on a 7" doing a "fancy" sleeve and charging the equivalent of around $75 AU they would cop so much shit and rightfully so.

I mean at least the band could sign the damn things or throw in a full length album on CD inside too.

Hipsters will buy anything.

And like Buzz and Haze said, if you don't want to pay, find it and download it for free from the interwebs.  They cannot stop the flippers nor the theifs.  I say get what you can while you can.  In this case if in a year this does not come out with some other release on a cd, I'll have to steal it off the interwebs.  Records do nothing for me, I just what the file to slap on my phone or computer to listen to when every I want.

Too bad AmRep does not have a digital download site like band camp.  Even if they put them up after something sells out or they've made their money off the limited runs.

Sounds like you want the fancy version for a non fancy price. It’s a 10” record not a 7”. Art was made by a hand carved linocut. If you’re not familiar Maybe you should look up what that is and how time consuming it is. And there’s only 400 of em. These aren’t mass produced run of mill eps,  That’s why they don’t have run of the mill prices. If that still doesn’t make sense , then just don’t buy it. Could they be a little cheaper ...probably. But no one buys music anymore. Merch is really the only way bands can make money now. That and touring. Good for them for figuring out a way to keep doing what they are doing and staying afloat when in a time where bands are hanging it up because of not making money. If they didn’t do as well in merch I wonder if they would tour as much as they do?

I agree it would be nice for them to have a bandcamp for all the singles and rare stuff.  That or a cheapie cd for every ep. seems like they usually end up on YouTube at some point or another though

The points Haze and Buzz have are purely justifiable. It takes time and they don’t won’t the shit hanging around. Get in sell it and move on. Hazes words on COD. Cool.

But they are slightly contradicting themselves. 100 was made available online. Only 1 per sale. Cool. The mass/international don’t get a chance. Sold in 60 seconds. Remaining for shows. So less people get a chance of getting how ever many they want. That’s my beef. Outside of that they can do what they want.

That's true, also the Bangers Ep and this album with Redd Kross are not available on YouTube and they're not easy to find on torrent or in places like Soulseek. An AmRep bandcamp page sounds like a very good idea.

The fact that you can get the Bangers EP as well as Flipper and Sabbath as Cheapy CDs, I agree with the Boutique logic. I do not with This one. Unless it does come out later at some point.

I’m not over Redd Kross at all, but are their songs available on previous albums/releases?
If so, this could be why the EP is not available as a CD. Licensing issue maybe. So the Melvins tracks could be on something else later. Stevens (Kiss) EP never came out on CD either. But yes those tracks were uploaded to YouTube.

I predict another Melvins covers album surfacing eventually. Being that most of their releases have been covers lately.

...And it gets exhausting to keep seeing the complaints about the prices on these limited releases.

It is HAND MADE ART that also happens to have a record included. Stop thinking about it as a "$50 EP"

-I am a huge vinyl nerd and a rabid Melvins fan. I can't always afford it.. So I don't buy it. I actually rarely do. I own a handful of them and I treasure them. I know there will be more. That's one of the great things about being a Melvins fan, they are constantly creating and a crazy prolific hard working band. I feel blessed that I can go see my favorite band in a smaller venue basically once a year for a decent fairly priced ticket and count on a constant stream of material that will always be interesting.
There are many fans of more popular bands that can not say any of those things. You have to get bent over and violated to go see them in a shitty arena for hundreds of dollars after waiting years for new material.

MP3, AIFF, ALAC and WAV for that matter since they're lossless formats, that's why an AmRep bandcamp page would be such a good idea.

^Seconded!

I've really been loving bandcamp of late, downloading FLAC the same day I place the vinyl order is awesome.

And from what I understand, Bandcamp is where the band (if from their page and not a record lable) gets/makes the most money these days.  There is really no expense if you are just buying a digital album.  CDs, records, and tapes cost money to produce, and take away profit for the band.  This is where I get most my music from now.  Then someplace like itunes or amazon or real product like a cd and rip it.

Amen for Bandcamp. And I get that it's logical for it to be pricier but I recall they were $30 a few years ago. Now they're $50-60? Something doesn't add up. And I'm not even going to mention bundles prices. Uniqueness and DIY should factor into the price for sure, but I think you have to keep it in line with the amount of actual content as well.

I spent $50 on the Melvins/Redd Kross split 10". It's pricey, but it is beautiful art. I wish I could have afforded to buy the Flipper and Sabbath 10"s as well, but I couldn't really afford to shell out the cash. It's cool with me. I don't mind the prices and think the records are worth it.

I picked up some good ones. Can’t expect them to take a massive stock of posters out. They just had left overs from previous shows and a few odds and ends.

No poster. However I found a few flyers at a restaurant. I posted the pic on the poster thread.
