IMPORTANT: Not sure if the Melvins are first to do this...
« on: November 06, 2006, 09:38:37 PM »
As I was listening to the new 7" for like, the 9th time tonight, I carefully laid the needle down as I always do and found that the song Boss Hoss was playing in reverse! At first, I was like wtf? I must've accidently flipped the switch to 33RPM. But no. After trying again, the regular song was back again.

What the Melvins have done on their newest limited release is included one groove to be the forward (regular) version and another groove to be the backwards version. Fuck yeah!! Where do they come up with this shit? My question is, has any other band done this before? I have a lot of records, but none of them have two tracks on two different grooves (or maybe I have never noticed before). The possibilities are endless for this. Seriously. You could put all kinds of hidden shit in on your record if this was more common.

Mr. Bungle did it with Disco Volante. The track Carry Stress in the Jaw, it has the first part of the track in one groove and the end part in another groove. I'm glad you mentioned something about the new 7", the first time I heard it, it was backwards and I thought I was going crazy.

No, Melvins are far from the first band doing so.

It's called parrallel grooves. Check out: http://www.kempa.com/blog/archives/000044.html

There's also inverted grooves (going inside/out): http://www.kempa.com/blog/archives/000050.html, and lock groove: http://www.kempa.com/blog/archives/000046.html.
To be afraid when you are alone, in the dark, faced with the unknown, the unspeakable; that is understandable fear. To be afraid, mortally afraid, in broad daylight, in a crowded city street, that is to know Melvins.

One of the earliest examples of parralel grooves was the Monty Python Tie & Handkerchief LP, otherwise known as the three sided LP.

Hmmm. I am confused. I have Disco Volante on Vinyl and havent noticed anything like this. How does it work?
