I'm holding the original cd in a pic with Buzz from my first Melvins show. He assured me they were gonna repress it soon. That was the (a)SA tour.

 I grabbed one on the 2003 Geek Show tour, I think they were under $10 at the table. This was a few years before Haze & then Walsby were working merch. I found another orig CD also cheap at a used shop a few yrs ago. I don't think the new art comes close to touching the original Kozik artwork. The Ipecac re-hash w/ Bulls & Bees is not even worth mentioning either. The Mansruin version might be my all-time favorite Melvins artwork job for CD. Why don't they just re-use it? Would they have to pay Kozik again? I guess it's fine that way, keeps the originals more collectible.

I’ve noticed the vinyl, which is a bootleg of course, has been selling for way more since this announcement. Which is hilarious since it sounds like total shit.

Chief, I agree. Kozik is my favorite Melvins graphic artist of all time and this one is just so bizarre and offensive and adorable that you can't even get mad at it.

Kind of a shame that Ipecac balked on the Vinyl package with Bulls & The Bees as I'd have scooped that up in a heartbeat. Then again they're not exactly saints in that department either.

I’m thinking it’s 200 copies mainly because it wasn’t gone after a min took about 3-4 min to sell out

What about Shitstorm? Is it the full version, or shortened as on the Ipecac Bulls & Bees two-fer CD. I'd think it would have to be the unedited.

Goddamn, this was super cutthroat, gone in a minute. Managed to grab the last variant, Got the other 2 on the last drops. Wish they did the bundle first as I would have saved on shipping.....oh well. Just happy to get em.

was on the site last sun and the pink ver had gone up a few min early- prob about 3min early

Had an inclination with this last variant, that it was only going to be 100 copies, (w this silkscreen run being 500 total) but what caught me off guard was the bundle, just kinda didn’t expect it

I messaged him a couple of days ago. He said he’s bunkered down in a pub with his guns 😂
He did say that things were starting to ease though. He seemed in good spirit, so everything would be good.

I’m curious as to why haze uses the Russian hammer and sickle so much on his art? I have the Melvins Unsane poster as well as the electroretard reissue shirt. I’m a moron when it comes to politics and history etc. looked up what it meant, but wondering if anyone has any insight as to why it’s on so much of his stuff? I apologize in advance is this is a stupid question.  :D

Probably the dichotomy of it representing the Soviet Union i.e. communism admired aspects like everyone is equal, look out for your fellow man vs the cold war where as communism/Russia was the enemy. The hammer and sickle gets the blood flowing no matter what side you're on.

This edition is 400 copies = less flip value

Might grab one if they don’t sell out by the end of the weekend.  I got one of the art editions so I feel like I should give other people a chance....

for real Let me also note this, So last night, no joke, i had this dream that the electroretard factory version had gone on sale reg time on Sunday but also along side it was a limited edition cassette with only 100 copies and i remember I was like this is so awesome, so I went  to add the vinyl to my cart  and then quickly The tape because it was still available then  not but a second later as i clicked checkout it said ‘sold out’ for the tape and I Just remember in the dream being Absolutely devastated because I do love tapes!

This is all that remains of my [cassette] collection. The Electroretard and Honky

Same here. I'm continuously amazed by how quickly HAZE gets his records out.
Especially considering he's basically a one man show.

Every time I buy from him it's bought on a Sunday and in my hands by Thursday/Friday  :shock:

Plenty of bigger online stores I buy records from can't do that. Same with the Discogs sellers. And now with the Covid excuse some of them are taking weeks to get things to me...      (I think this means I've been buying too many records lately  :lol: :lol:  )

Hehe Haze is awesome.  I loved he had my back when I was trying to tell people here years ago that the tensions were building up a lot and people were getting too damn negative.  I'm also sure that thread is around here somewhere.  Have fun finding it lol!  I remember what he said though.
