I don't have an actual release but I have an MP3 of the contents and I think it's brilliant. It's a tour snap-shot from right around the Stoner Witch release. There's live material, radio interviews and tour promotional stuff from the Rob Zombie tour at Altamont Speedway, if I remember right.

There is one part I find hilarious, a kid named Floyd calls the radio station and Buzz offers to take him on tour if his parents will let him. Floyd says his parents aren't home. Buzz asks if his parents credit card is home.

Another thing I find interesting is the tension between Buzz and Mark D. during right before Revolve starts.

I would like to find an original copy of Tora Tora Tora someday.

I got a copy of Tora Tora Tora about 6 months ago used.  Thank heaven for Amoeba Records.  It is a realy incredible piece of art.  It's fitting that someone mentions it now because the release reminds me in some ways of Neither Here Nor There.  It seems like they spent a long time trying to make a really nice artistic piece.  Mackie did a fine job.

By the way, speaking of tension between Mark and Buzz, I think the two are estranged.  Has anyone else noticed the lack of Mark photos in Neither Here Nor There?  I counted maybe five total pictures and most of those were obscured or upside down.  Compare that to the numerous shots of both Lorax and Lukin.  No wonder he called his solo album The Silent Treatment.

Brilliant. Thanks for the insight.

Mark D is being the bigger man, he never says anything negative
about the Melvins, he just goes about his business and continues
to record and produce himself and others, to his credit.

 What has he done since he left the Melvins, besides the one solo thing...

The Mark D era was my least favorite.

Nothing on the Atlantic releases interested you in the least?
What about his production work on Ozma, and the fact that he
did the Melvins live sound for a few years before they
asked him to join??
It's all in people's different tastes i suppose. I respect that
we differ. I still love Bullhead, Eggnog and totally love HAT
dont get me wrong -- but

What hasn't he done?! The man is a jetsetter, he travels between
England and Texas recording bands, and reciting poetry, he also
engages in civil disobedience on a regular basis. He manages the
rights and clearance for the Clown Alley releases and potential re-issues.
Solo-wise he has that 7" thing out (which I've only seen on eBay)
which is a taster EP for his next solo record.

Lately he's been around Austin performing in a low-key stoner
blues groove machine called Volcano if the rumours are true.

on a sidenote, you have very great photos on your site.

they were working with deutrom even during Ozma, so its hard to depict an era for him. i understand that your focusing on the atlantic years though.i dig everything they do because they have such a cool way of making diverse records.they are great artists!

Clown Alley re-issues? Really? I'd like to hear that, I've only heard one song by them, but it was really good.
Hail, not fail.

mark's a jetsetter cause his wife is super-rich and they live in a castle.  but he's a dickmunch too.  buzz has a lot of bad luck with bass players. i hope he doesn't have the same with kevin.
