PigSkin/Starve Already 7" - released 2006

Friday Night Edition Cover by Aesthetic Apparatus


This 7" released by Amphetamine Reptile Records was sold at the shows in Minneapolis, MN on March 24th and 25th of 2006. The first night was at the Soo Visual Arts Gallery and the second was at Grumpy's, these shows took place on the opening nights of the Juxtapoz art show of 2006 that took place at the Soovac and OX-OP galleries in Minneapolis. The news article about this is here.

Here is the info from amrep: No shenanigans this time with the exclusive single made for the Melvins Minneapolis Juxtapoz/Grumpy’s shows, it is two original ROCKERS. Experimental? Yes. Noise pieces? no. Buzz on guitar and vocals. Dale on drums, well except the B-side which has Grant Hart (of Husker Du fame) playing drums. HAZE XXL (Halo Of Flies) has chipped in some bass, guitar, and back up vocals as well. Two exclusive original songs with no plans for being released elsewhere anytime soon. The Melvins played 2 shows and there was a different sleeve design for each night. The singles for sale here are signed by one or more members of the band , and Grant Hart was even around to sign some himself. AmRep takes no responsibility for any of the views or opinions in some of the secret messages contained within these sleeves as they are the opinions of the band members themselves (ha-ha). The signatures are inside the sleeves and not on the outside as the sleeves are too damned pretty to go and have musicians coloring on ‘em. Before anybody starts bellyaching about the price, keep in mind these aren't out takes, we paid for Buzz to come to Minneapolis a couple months before the show to record and mix the tracks, as well as the fact that these will inevitably wind up on ebay for some ridiculous sum, so considers it an eBay tax in which the band will actually get the extra profit instead of a handful of folks buying dupes for secondary sale.
