(This review originally appears in The Crass Menagerie #100)

This was my first exposure to a 5" record. In fact it being a 5" was one of the main reasons I bought it. Fortunately I had a record player that didn’t have too much trouble playing it... I could usually get it to play after five or six attempts at moving my needle towards the edge of the vinyl very slooooooooowly. I know some people who simply cannot get a 5" to play. At the time this came out I was not much of a MELVINS fan. I was stupid. I was, however, a FLIPPER fan and this record was MELVINS doing FLIPPER covers and it came out about the same time FLIPPER reformed and released “American Grafishy,” (“Someday” was a track included on “American Grafishy.”) an album I loved but a lot of old FLIPPER fans hated. After hearing this record I decided that MELVINS did indeed know what they were doing and I began buying their stuff.

Tracklist

A: Love Canal - 4:06 cover from Flipper's Sex Bomb Baby

B: Someday - 3:21 cover from Flipper's American Grafishy
