MELVINS in Village Voice..LYSOL
« on: May 31, 2011, 06:57:11 PM »
Does anyone know the back story to this song?  It was mentioned in the following article, as an "unrecorded Melvins song  -  "Rabbit's Revenge" ".

I thought this was the unpublished finale in the John Updike series where Harry "Rabbit" Angstrom returns from the grave to exact unholy vengeance upon his high school nemesis, Ronnie Harrison. But a lost melvins song of this name would be something I might actually enjoy.

I always figured "Rabbits Revenge" was Sunn's reply to the notion of a "Hung Bunny", hence Melvins getting credited on the track. but what do i know?

Rabbit's Revenge is an early Melvins track  from the Lukin era that they only played live.  Joe told me he used to have a recording of it from a radio show they did back in the 80's, but otherwise it seems only Greg Anderson has the live version, or someone else who hasn't come up off a tape.

Goddamnit, this is what happens when I start dealing with my own life and failing marriage instead of writing my Lysol article/book 2 years ago.  Motherfucker.
