I've had a few days to absorb this EP. I like it. Hot Fish and Sacrifice are the better tracks for me. I didn't really grow up with Flipper, though I've heard the records on occasion, so Blues and Shine are basically new to me.

All the cover songs are long without really going anywhere, except that "Sacrifice" has that big Buzz KISS yell at the end. "Shine" feels a lot like "Euthenasia" and after hearing the source material I appreciate this version more.

It's a good record. I'd probably recommend the Sabbath EP over this if someone were asking, but if this is part of an ongoing series I hope they keep doing more.

Also, there's a lot of flamming going on with the drums. Is this all two drummers?

I noticed that the 'brand new' page on shoxop has been updated to remove the sold out stuff. potentially this is a sign that some of the remains of the flipper 10“ could go up soon....
happened for the sabbath 10" like this... so as a headsup to those who missed out.

Finally listened to it. I like it. Now it looks like there's a collab or split or something with Shitkid on the way according to the band's Facebook?

I’ve seen that too! Hopefully it’s a collab instead of a split, but I would buy it either way..

Interesting that two songs are billed as simply Melvins

Sacrifice has been done to death over the years... but I'm glad they at least did a different rendition. Thought I think it doesn't pack the same punch as the Lysol one.

I Saw You Shine, oh wow. Now that's a great cover. It does sound like Euthanasia as has been already mentioned, but
I haven't heard a Melvins song as emotionally heavy as this since... The Decay Of Lying probably.
Sweet Young Thing comes to mind, I loved the mood on that. This is one of the best covers Melvins have ever done.

The other two songs don't do much for me atm honestly.
I mean Hot Fish has this mellow groove that's pleasant but it pales in comparison to A Senile Animal songs with the same vibe.
The double vocals on Flipper Blues are fun, but they're not enough to make it an interesting song.

So when I went and saw Flipper + Yow in Indianapolis I talked to the guitarist for a bit and mentioned I was bummed that the Flipper/Melvins vinyl sold out so quick and he said to watch out for a repressing that will be sold on their website. I can't find a Flipper website but either way that brings me hope.

*Maybe* Ted was talking about this site?
This place does have a bunch of merch they had with them on the tour out West, anyway.

I scored me a Melvins pipe-cleaner doll from the wife of a Flipper. She seemed anxious then pleased that I'd taken it out of its bag for the first time ever. It was in my old avatar, prolly lost the photo now.
