AmRep and the Melvins have announced Throbbing Jazz Gristle Funk Hits! An homage to Throbbing Gristle featuring Void Manes is available 6/25 via SHOXOP.
The Vinyl Art edition, with absolutely stunning HAZEXXL art – sporting locked groove infinite loops on both sides of the black vinyl LP – also comes with a bonus Flexi disc with 2 tracks! Complimentary CD version included, and the head kicker… Off-axis drilled spare spindle hole – an act inspired by industrial forefathers (we advise against even thinking of using it!) Hand stamped art on the center label... just about every down and dirty trick from the industrial miscreants of yesteryears handbook.
Fom AmRep: What’s the obvious and predictable move for an insanely influential band like the Melvin’s to do on their 40th anniversary? An homage LP to another insanely influential band, Throbbing Gristle, of course!
THROBBING JAZZ GRISTLE FUNK HITS!
A hybrid of covers and inspired jams, joined by their good friend Void Manes and produced by Toshi Kasai, this project will likely for the first time challenge longtime Melvins fans, because the band isn’t known for doing that…ever.
Expect Industrial accidents, broken machines, modular synths, circuit-bent toys inspired by the dawning of the industrial music genre kicked off in no small part by Throbbing Gristle. The first all-electronic Melvins album!?!
Bifocal Media has a-side/b-side limited edition t-shirts featuring the HAZE XXL artwork for this release up for preorder now!
