I'm reading a Melvins interview in Fiz #10 from January/February 1994. The Melvins Army have an advert in there with a discography. One of the entries is:

V/A - An Empty Threat - cassette (Atom)

Does anyone have a copy of this I can snatch a photo of for the Wiki, please? It's a new one on me.

jules,did you notice that copy is the "quake surviver issue"?

cool magazine.
Again,a gorgeous tragedy approaches,in the wake of those thought contained.But sonic reverberations shake the very marrow of the fragile chamber of mans lifeforce,and again the minions quiver in fear,as daylight fails to come,and Melvins walk the battlefield,bored and hungry...

Bump. Found one. How long did that take? Comes in a ziplock plastic bag with a booklet and some home-made stickers. Don't know who was responsible for it, but comes out of Olympia and has a Calvin Johnson/K Records feel to it.

When I get a minute I'll scan the booklet and the stickers, including the Melvins sticker  :shock:

Nice find!

Is Blessing The Operation the version from the Deep Six compilation?

No, it isn't. It's a much rawer recording with thundering drums. I'm trying to find the same version somewhere else but I haven't had much luck.

Hmm, well there's Operation Blessing on 26 Songs, sound anything like that? Maybe some early bedroom or garage recording?
geeks get it done.

Think you've got it! It could be the version on 26 songs, but before it was remastered. The sound on the compilation is much rawer.
