This was initially titled, "Bangers" and that cover with the naked clown lady was never used, right?
Sucks that they were booted off the tour for such a simple disagreement.

Makes me wonder who did the art, why it was chosen, and why it was such a make or break issue for the band?

If I had to guess there might be a little bit more to this story...

Coincidence?

that drawing seems pretty darn tame compared to their instagram and some of  their other record covers.

Is it possible this is just a publicity stunt?

apparently that "rumour" has been floating downstream for months ...

Veronica Hazelmeyer.

FYI NOPE, HOPE, COPE, MOPE, etc have been used on Mackie's letterpresses since the Clown Singles.

First Teri & Omar now Shitkid!!! Oh well. Shitkid pretty much suck anyway so im not too fussed about this one myself. They seemed like they have a bit too much of a "better than you" attitude in interviews etc, but then again Buzz can be a little that way sometimes too. Six of one, half a dozen of another?

When all your music starts to suck and you've jumped the shark several times already, you have to drum up sales somehow.

I asked Haze about the naked clown piece and he said it was never intended to be the cover, that it was made for internet publicity pictures.

Seems there are a couple of other Melvins/Shitkid tracks on their new album.

Quote
"Tracks 2, 3, 7 and 9 recorded and produced by Toshi Kasai in Los Angeles, CA featuring Åsa Söderqvist on vocals and guitar, Lina Molarin Ericsson on vocals and bass, Buzz Osborne on guitar and Dale Crover on drums."

Shitkid fucking rules. This album is great. I hope bridges are not truly burnt between Melvins and Shitkid so we can see more collaborations in the future.

Have you noticed the sleeve is a recycled Maggot sleeve?  :nerd:  Mine have 'MELVINS  *  MAGGOT'  printed on the spine and the pumpkin is still there.

well, whatever in the fuck came down, I hope it is resolved. Although I didn't much care for SK, I think there aren't enough Swedish women in music (or anywhere else, for that matter)
